"Perfect ... for careful users"
10 October 2014
I'd never spent this much on a teapot, but cheaper ones either break (china ones) or the lid gets bent out of shape (metal ones). This one is solidly made, looks and feels good, happily does 3 mugs of tea and pours perfectly ... Or it did until I dropped it (empty). I caught it on my thickly-slippered foot so thought it would be fine. But the lid got very slightly knocked & now it leaks when pouring. So, my fault entirely, but other purchasers note that for all its admirable qualities, this teapot is not completely robust. Use it carefully.
