This is a pretty little teapot but has one big inherent flaw. Upon brewing my first cup of tea, the lid on the teapot slid off and broke while pouring because there is no seal (gasket); so you must hold the hot lid while barely tilting to pour. It comes with one free replacement lid. After the free replacement lid was received, I used the teapot everyday for almost 2 years. One day, while brewing the water on my glass top range, it loudly popped and the water poured out of the bottom where it smoothly cracked and broke into two pieces - like a knife smoothly sliced it into two pieces. I got my money's worth, but I wouldn’t purchase it again.
