Stainless Steel Tea Pot Review
Three Popular Brands Compared

A stainless steel tea pot is great. It is durable, easy to care for and does a great job of keeping your tea hot.



Durable and low-maintenance, stainless steel pots come in a variety of styles and finishes. If you are looking for something to impress your guests, they can be more attractive than you might think.

To me, they are a good all-rounder, and are especially suitable for brewing the darker oxidised tea such as the dark oolongs, darjeelings and pu-erhs.

They are also good at retaining heat. As they don’t absorb flavors and affect the taste of the tea, they can be used to brew a varieties of different teas.

Stainless Steel Tea Pot #1:
Cuisinox S3319B Tea Pot with Infuser

This Cuisinox S3319B Tea Pot with Infuser would be an excellent choice for a couple, or for someone who drinks tea throughout the day. It has a 1-liter capacity, and reviewers say it is perfect for brewing 4 cups of tea at a time.

What are the advantages of this model?

First of all, look at the rounded egg shape. In addition to being attractive, this shape also allows water to circulate in the belly of the tea pot, extracting the maximum flavor out of the tea leaves.

Although the pot is made of stainless steel, the handle and the knob on top of the lid are encased in plastic. Stainless still is great for holding heat in and keeping the tea warm - but of course, you don’t want the part of the pot you are picking up to hold too much heat! The plastic on the handle and the lid makes it comfortable to pick up and pour.

Additionally, this model comes with an infuser basket for your tea leaves.

The infuser basket is roomy enough to give the tea leaves room to breathe, so you’ll get great flavor and easy clean-up.

You can make enough tea to last you for a while, remove the filter basket, and have a steady supply of tea without having to worry about the tea getting bitter from oversteeping.

The price, $38.00, is reasonable considering that you could use this tea pot frequently and expect it to last a long time.

Stainless Steel Tea Pot #2:
Bodum Naoko Teapot

If you would like something a more fanciful, the Bodum Naoko Stainless-Steel 32-Ounce Teapot might be just what you are looking for.

This adorable stainless steel tea pot is shaped like Aladdin’s lamp. It also brews 4 cups at a time, and has a stainless steel infuser basket so you can remove the leaves when the tea is done brewing.

The handle is not plastic, but it curves away from the body of the tea pot, so it will stay cool and be easy to pick up. The spout is dribble-free; the only complaint seems to be the ease of cleaning of the filter basket, as tea leaves have a tendency to get stuck.

Stainless Steel Tea Pot #3:
Stanley 1.0L ErgoServ Vacuum Insulated Tea Pot with Infuser

Stainless steel tea pots with double-walled construction are the best for keeping tea hot for hours. This practical ErgoServ Vacuum Insulated Tea Pot has a double-walled construction, plastic handles and an infuser basket.

You can brew your tea, remove the infuser basket, and drink it over a period of several hours without having to reheat it. Even better, the tea pot is dishwasher safe, and the brushed stainless steel finish doesn’t show fingerprints.

Although there are no product reviews for it yet, the manufacturers claim that the spout has been specially designed so as not to drip. It is not as attractive as the other two models, but then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?

At $55, this pot is a great value.
