I looked at these for a long time, I know they are more energy efficient, BUT even the ones I found that have a glass body/carafe have plastic lids (steam will condense on it and drip back into the water) or plastic somewhere else. I also worry about the fact that most of them have plastic bases, which surely must have flame retardants in them, I wonder if they would offgas some each time it's heated.
But there are ones out there with less plastic, at least. Or what about an induction burner to heat water on with a tea kettle?
I'm dealing with house health issues and realizing that there are few perfect choices, just some better ones, hence my ambivalence.
