This is a wonderful teapot. The internal strainer keeps your tea free of leaves - it has a very fine mesh and copes superbly with all forms of loose tea, from the finely shredded commercial varieties to the much larger leaves of specialist or Chinese teas. The strainer in this metal version is also better positioned than in my original plastic one and, with its folding handle, makes the loading of tea leaves much easier (and cleaning easier too).
The pot holds enough tea for two pint mugs - I do drink tea by the pint - so it is excellent for individuals or couples. The level of tea in the strainer means you need to add approximately one pint of water to ensure coverage of leaves, so adjust quantities to your taste.
The teapot has proved easy to clean, easy to use, and makes an excellent cuppa. Given the eight years usage I had with the plastic version, I expect this to be a long-lasting investment, easily maintained, and resilient (the glass bowl allows you to see the depth of water and the density of colour of the tea you're brewing - and in years of regular but careful usage, I never chipped or cracked the glass).
This is an excellent addition to the kitchen. Practical, of course, but a very stylish design, and an excellent balance, easy to pour, safe, and easy to use.
This teapot has "La Cafietere" written in white on the bottom of the of the glass bowl; which can be read if you hold the teapot upside down. In all other respects the two teapots are identical. Yes you can get in 1200ml of liquid which is right to the top of the bowl and lip. Filled like this you spill liquid on lifting the lid and the spout is not designed to pour when so full. The Kitchen Craft model being identical also will hold 1200ml of liquid with similar problems. Kitchen Craft obviously do not want to mislead their customers and therefore quote the useable capacity of 900ml.
Save yourself £5.34 and buy the identical Kitchen Craft teapot.
One of my pet annoyances is tea running down the outside of a teapot from the spout after pouring a cup, leaving tea-stains wherever the pot is placed. Now no longer! This new one is drip-free!
I am delighted to be able to confirm that this '1.2 litre' (but actually only 1 litre to the top of the infuser) 'La Cafetière Le Tea Pot' is the best tea pot we have used for several decades.
. It pours beautifully, with no drips or runs from the lip of the spout. Amazing.
. The handle is surprisingly easy to hold, even when the pot is full, and does not get too hot.
. The glass and stainless pot does not flavour the tea.
. It traps all the leaves in the cylindrical infuser (thousands of 0.5mm holes), even with fine dusty Darjeeling.
. The funnel system means all the hot water added passes through the leaves, and any leaves that might be splashed up fall back into the central infuser where they came from.
. It is very easy to take apart and clean, and the stainless bits will survive the dishwasher - but don't do this a lot with the bowl because the glass is soft and can be scoured by some cleaning products.
. The infuser has a convenient little folding handle.
. It feels secure in use, with no worry about the lid falling off or the bowl dropping out of the handle cradle
. It fits our tea-cosies.
I thought we might want to stir the tea (as usual) after the initial infusion, and this is possible, but only in the infuser.Read more ›
Fine holes in central part mean good all-round flavour.
A great buy.
- it really is smaller than I imagined, but that has to do with 1200ml being less than I thought. So not loss of the five star rating there.
- I noticed that there can be water between the glass and the inox construction around it - it is hardly noticeable. Just dry it upside down and that's solved. No loss of stars either.
- But my biggest gripe is that the lid is difficult to remove to the point of being afraid that I would one day break it. Ok, it needs to stick on when pouring, but this is overdone. I suppose it is a problem with the one specific unit I have though and it is not enough to send it back. It is enough for me to remove one star.
EDIT on 20111228: I took a point of the score because of the lid. A few days after I posted the initial review, the glass pouring tip indeed broke off while trying to remove the lid. I had done it a few times already and I guess I became a bit careless. Anyhow, I have written Amazon about it. They immediately sent me a replacement, which I received mere days later. The lid is far more easy to remove now - making it an excellent and well-priced choice.

Broke the glass of the first one & it was easier to buy a whole new kit - excellent productPublished 2 months ago by M.D.
Beautiful design, but the handle is not comfortable to hold with a full teapot, and when pouring the lid knob is very hot to touch if you try to hold the lid in. Read morePublished 5 months ago by John Perkins

I bought a large and a small teapot. They were both very good pourers. My only complaint is that the lid does get a bit hot to the topuch.Published on 3 Sept. 2014 by Carol Garraghan
