Hate to hear about your breakage also. I am somewhat
surprised that the low heat would break the pot. Never
really thought about how low coffee might be able to
go before it was a danger to the pot? That is
something to keep in mind.
The McKee was at little over half full and barely on
the stove when it went. Something else must have
played out there but not sure what?
I wish now I had kept some lower bowls I tossed after
they didn't sell, I would like to try one that
wouldn't matter on that silex stove to see what
happens. I am afraid to try my regular ones on it. I
don't really see how the wattage could be off though?
I think it is rated at 550 watts. that is typical of
those. That McKee pot was rather thick glass and maybe
doesn't give as well as the thinner silex and cory
