TRENDGLAS JENA HEAT RESISTANT GLASS
What is Jena glass?
In common parlance, the term "jena glass" is used to describe a heat-resistant glass that is oval or square (less common), has a top and can be placed in the oven. These were the first heat-resistant household dishes to be produced around 1920. As production took place in Jena (Germany), they became known as 'Jena glass' or 'Jena dish'.
How is the brand name TrendglasJENA related to the original jenaer glas?
Around 1920, the first heat-resistant household glassware in the world was melted in Jena. Otto Schott developed borosilicate glass, a universal material that soon reached the household after laboratory and industrial use.
In 2005, Schott Jenaer Glas GmbH stopped production of household glassware. Sopron-based Csonkaglas had been a supplier to Jenaer Glas for more than 12 years. This company was the manufacturer of the original "Jena glass" and Csonkaglas bought the machines from them. Using the original Jena moulds and the same borosilicate raw material, they improved the products and produced innovative products meeting current needs. They are now present in over 56 countries worldwide under the TrendglasJENA brand and can be found in over 600 specialist stores just in Germany.
The combination of the excellent borosilicate raw material ("Made in Germany") and decades of experience in the processing of heat-resistant glass, guarantees highly processed, high-quality products.
Aesthetic design, high functionality and a wide assortment characterise the TrendglasJENA brand.

Tips for tea drinkers
- Place the full tea strainer in the half-filled jug, then add the rest of the water. The tea is then perfectly dispersed and its full aroma is released.
- For safe pouring, lift the lid of the teapot slightly to avoid the negative effects of a vacuum and to make pouring easier.
