Hi

I have two hand blown chemex and I consistently have trouble gripping so I don't burn my hand. My coordination is not the best.  What are my options?  Glass chemex with handle? Does it brew as well? Other options to avoid burning? Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks

Jay

Is there anything I can use to grip the chemex? I assume the glass handle would solve this?

I tossed the wood collar.  Nothing but a pain to take off, wash the glass, and reattach the collar.  Right into the recycle bin.

I have an oven glove that I use to grab the Chemex at the narrowest part of the throat.  Perfect.   Try one.

you could consider a pair of silicone mitts, one to grip the neck and the other to support the bottom.
