How to Choose the Best Teapot

Though teapots have been for a long time, the design has certainly been improved. Today, there are a ton of different teapots to choose from – including ones that steep tea, boil water on demand, and even ones that don’t need to be put on a stove to work. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best traditional-style teapots on the market right now. Here are some things that you should know before you start shopping.

Best Teapots

Material: What is the body of the teapot made of? The most popular options here are stainless steel (it won’t rust and cleans easily) or glass, which is aesthetically pleasing and holds heat a little longer.

Product Buying Icon

Color: What color is the teapot? Stainless steel pots are going to be silver most of the time, while ceramic pots can be just about any color. Glass teapots are, of course, going to be clear for aesthetic purposes.

How to Choose the Best Teapot

Capacity: How many quarts of tea can the pot hold? This will also tell you how much you’re able to make at once with the particular teapot you’re looking at. Use this information if you’re making tea for multiple people.

Product Buying Icon

Infuser: Some teapots on this list come with an infuser, which means that you can use it to brew all of your favorite loose leaf teas. Having one included means you won’t have to purchase it separately!

Best Teapots

Dishwasher Safe: Being able to throw your teapot in the dishwasher when you’re done using it can be invaluable to save time. We’ll let you know here if it’s safe to be washed in a dishwasher or by hand.

Product Intro Icon

Whistling: The whistling sound a teapot makes when your tea is done is a traditional thing that most people will look for. We’ll let you know if the teapot makes a whistling noise when it’s finished brewing here.

Willow & Everett Tea Kettle

Willow & Everett Tea Kettle
The best teapot on the market right now has to be this one by Willow & Everett, in our opinion. It’s a weighty kettle that can make up to 2.75 quarts of tea at a time. This stainless steel pot can withstand corrosion, rust, and dents because it is made of high-quality surgical-grade stainless steel. It looks great in your kitchen and it’s going to make you some delicious tea. It comes with a premium stainless steel tea infuser that’s just big enough to make a single cup of custom tea. This kettle has five layers of steel and iron, as well as aluminum to keep the heat in, so it’s going to heat up quickly and stay warm for a long time. You can have tea or coffee in no time at all! The handle and spout lever are coated with silicone so they won’t transfer heat and the kettle is 100% BPA and Teflon free!

FORLIFE Stump Teapot

FORLIFE Stump Teapot
The FORLIFE Stump Teapot comes in a variety of beautiful colors. When you want a few cups of tea at a time, this is the perfect steeping device for you. It’s made of ceramic, and instead of being a traditional teapot that you warm on a stove, you simply pour the already-boiling water into the pot and it will steep a few cups of your favorite loose-leaf tea via the built-in infuser. You can also use it for tea bags and it’s great for serving tea to multiple people at a café or dinner party. When all the tea has been poured out, you can put it into the dishwasher for cleaning without having to wash it by hand. It’s the best teapot for loose tea on our list because that is the only thing that it does. No bells and whistles here – only the ability to make amazingly delicious tea from loose-leaf and whole leaf teas.

OXO Good Grips Classic Tea Kettle

OXO Good Grips Classic Tea Kettle
The OXO Good Grips kettle is made with stainless steel to help guard your new favorite teapot against rust and corrosion. It has a large lid opening that allows you to fill and clean the teapot easily, so you don’t have to contort your hand to get it to fit inside with a cloth. When the water inside is ready, you will definitely be able to hear the loud whistling signal to let you know. The handle rotates out of the way so it’s easy to fill the pot, pour your favorite beverages out, or store it in your pantry. That’s really useful, and it’s not a feature that many teapots offer. The places you touch on the handle and the spout are coated in silicone so you can easily move it around without burning your hands. Heat won’t spread across the silicone. OXO does not recommend using this teapot with an induction stovetop at all.

When it’s time to clean it out, Cuisinart recommends that you wash it by hand with mild soap rather than throwing it in the dishwasher.
