Sabichi 1200 ml Double Wall Teapot by Sabichi
1.0 out of 5 stars no good for loose tea, 26 Jan 2013
tea pot just arrived yesterday looked good , quite pleased , until i tried a brew ,i use loose tea leaves the holes in the spout are too small and block so its almost impossible to pour the tea out!
if you use loose tea do not buy this pot it is totally useless!!
ive had my drill out and managed to remove most of the filter holes at the base of the spout, it now works brill
if it had come like this i would have given it five stars , it still only gets one though really should not have to make alterations to anything new .

the instruction book is tiny and a bit vague , there is no symbol on the display to indicate whether the alarm is on or off , i never use a alarm and usually turn it off and it stays off , it also beeps on the hour i do not like this either, i have not found any way to disable this , no mention in the poor instructions.
it might be that i am just to old for this watch ! the clue might be in the name a company called neff and a watch called steve ? a… Read more
