Rated 2 out of 5 by ZAN not the best
someone else may like this. I thought it would keep drinks hot. yes only first or third sip. since prior reviewer raved i took a chance.(Sorry) also the strainer came out slightly tilted after first use like warped from heat. Would send back but will give to a friend. More wasted money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sforsmith Perfect to keep tea hot!! Looks good, too!!
Although this teapot looks delicate, which it is, I understand from another website it is made out of the same glass as Pyrex. This makes me breath easier. First, the spout is literally non drip. Pours great!! Then, it holds at least four (or more) full cups, which is bigger than my previous ones. Next, the tea light candle seriously keeps it hot to the last drop. That was my main reason for purchasing it. If it's only me using it, that very last cup about 45 minutes later, is still hot. It's great sharing it with my spouse or when we have dinner guests over. Oh, and the tea light hasn't burned out by the time I use the whole pot. Yes, the lid knob retains heat, but you really do not need to hold it as it has a rubber type gasket on the lid base. I feel comfortable that it will stay in place. Even the handle used to make me think it's too weak for the filled pot, but not so. Because it's a tempered?-Type glass, it is perfect. If I had one negative thing to say, it would be the wire mess insert has a seam which catches on dish cloth. Although I only use tea bags, I still like the insert inside to keep the bags on the bottom. Overall, I'd still rate it 5 stars. This is great for tea lovers.
