Premium German brand alfi has launched two glass vacuuminsulated carafes, Senso and Gusto Tea. Both have sleek features and colourful hues that make them stylish additions to a kitchen.

The 0.65-litre Senso carafe has a "single-hand pouring button" - open the seal at the flask's mouth and pour using just one hand - and can keep liquids cold for an entire day or hot for 12 hours. Priced at $119, it comes in three colours: fire red, white and apple green.

Tea lovers will like the 1-litre Gusto Tea carafe, which comes with an integrated tea filter made with a stainless steel foil that has "aroma pores". This helps retain the tea's fragrance. The stout carafe, which costs $139, comes in three shades: fire red, sweet mango and alpine white.

Where: Available at major department stores including BHG Bugis, Bugis Junction Singapore, 200 Victoria Street; and Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Ngee Ann City, 391A Orchard Road
