Cafe Ole Café Ole Rondo Stainless Steel Tea Pot Easy Pour Teapot : A Shiny Teapot

Looks good and pours very well. Good volume for several cups. Infuser basket is handy to remove the tea leaves easily when your tea is strong enough for you. Would be 5 out of 5, but the infuser basket sits in the top half of the teapot so whilst this is fine for me, and a benefit in that it prevents the tea continuing to stew after the first cups are poured its not so good if you’re using the pot for a small amount of tea in the first place.

After having an ancient metal teapot for years, we needed a new one but looking in the shops we found many teapots far too small so we would have to keep putting the kettle on. This one is a good size – 1. 7l and holds exactly the same as the kettle so we get a good six cups out of it and the tea keeps hot until the last drop. It looks stylish and can honestly say it is the best teapot we’ve ever had.

Café Ole Rondo Stainless Steel Tea Pot Easy Pour Teapot with Infuser Basket 17oz 500ml

  • 0.5L / 500ml capacity, made from stainless steel
  • High quality construction with a bakelite plastic stay cool handle easy to grip handle and perfect pour spout
  • Removable infuser basket allowing you to use your favourite loose leaf tea
  • Dishwasher safe, however hand wash recommended.
  • Fully guaranteed against manufacturing defects

There are 2 photos in the sales listing for this teapot. We wanted and got the almost spherical shape (not the dome shape with straight sides). We bought this as a replacement for a similar teapot we had owned for 13 years (it had begun to leak from the base of the spout). This is good but by comparison is lighter in weight, the infuser is smaller and the lid fitting too tight. But had we not had the old one to compare it too i think we’d be happy. The lid does need a firm push so that it fits securely in place. If the teapot is filled to capacity it has a tendency to spill tea from around the lid so we fill it to about 1/2 an inch from the top. As the infuser is not particularly deep the pot needs to be filled about 2/3 full for the tea to brew (otherwise the tea leaves are not immersed). On the upside the leaves are removed from the liquor once the first couple of cups have been poured so stewing is reduced. We use a tea cosy to keep the tea(pot) hot.

I am delighted with this teapot which is perfect for one person (2 cups). It’s well made, pours beautifully and completely fits the bill.

Good sized teapot, just perfect. Exactly what i was looking for.

Café Ole Rondo Stainless Steel Tea Pot Easy Pour Teapot with Infuser Basket 17oz 500ml : Received this tea pot on 1st march 2017 just what i wanted however today 13th april 2017 the knob has come off the lid i consider this very poor for a teapot of the quality. I must say that i have had one of these teapots in the past and it last several years before the handle broke. So will i buy one again i don’t think so even though i like the design and the fact that it is stainless steele.

2nd one ordered 1st too small.

We had been looking for ages to find a teapot that is big enough for two large mugs but can pour with no dribbles from the spout or overflow from the lid. This teapot meets my spec perfectly. The included infuser basket may indeed be too high to allow a half pot to be made with leaf tea, but we only use teabags, so have no use for the infuser. So far we have had no problem with cleaning and the overlapping wide rim has not proved an issue – any remaing liquid can simply be poured out through the spout.It is recommended that it be cleaned by hand, but so far we have not had a problem using the dishwasher. The finish is very shiny, so does show fingermarks – but hey, i didn’t buy it as a showpiece but as a teapot. After many attempts to solve my dribble problem, this teapot achieves it perfectly.

This teapot arrived on time, it suits my need very well,.

The tea pot looks pretty at the table, easy to wash and very good price.

We’ve been using loose tea for a long time & never found the right solution. This is pouring perfection, a tea leaf basket to fit, the teapot looks classy, keeps the tea warm longer and, we think, even the tea tastes better. 5 litres, you would not believe it, doesn’t look big enough. Not ideal if you want just one mugful as the tea basket is too high but as we always have 3 or 4 cups each time. After pouring off a certain amount, no stewing, so you can come back for seconds. As with other people who’ve reviewed this, i wouldn’t put the tea basket in the dishwashe. Anyway, if the lid seems too big and you can’t get it on/off, (or too small, even) , just adjust the rim of the lid in 3 places, i did it with a screw driver.

Handle doesn’t get hot at all and although she hasn’t a lot of strength left in her hands, she gets the lid of without any problems :-).

Delivered within 2 days of ordering, no excessive packaging.

Excellent service , love the teapot , makes a lovely cuppa.

Great little teapot it slso have a filter inside just like the old teapots,only snag ,the handle gets very hot,ok if you use a padded pad.

Lovely teapot nice pourer no need for a strainer anymore.

Looks good and has a good capacity but unfortunately it does drip.

Can drip when pouring while full but ok when not full.

Good sized attractive tea pot. If your family all like a large mug of tea in the morning this is great.

As described and just what we needed.

Perfect drip free pouring and the lid is easy to remove even when hot.

It is a good solid tea pot thatinfuses very well. I use a loose leaf tea called norfolk blend from local tea specialist shop. If you like your tea of truly high quality. This infuser tea pot is a must.

    Ideal size for 2 cups of tea. I use it for moroccan or turkish tea so i get several glasses of tea. The tea pot is very well made and the mesh infuser is just the right size. You need to take care touching the main body as it does get very hot. Tea stays warm for around 20/30min.

    It has no heat-keeping abilities – the vacuum insulation is faulty, so the side of the pot is scalding to the touch.

    I bought this thinking it was double wall insulated pot, it’s not. Also there is an excessive lip holding the infuser, rinsing is therefore not easy.

      This is easy to use with the built in strainer, but there is a problem. The strainer is not that deep, so no good for one cup, so have to use two spoons of tea and half fill. For two or more it is ok, and does not make the tea cold as quick as the pot tea pot, which sucked the heat out very quick. Mess is a little large, which does let small tea leafs through. Had a glass version like this and this was not a problem on that oneso overall very pleased at the price and the finish is very good and i believe better with the black handles and not the stainless steel handles, as no heat transfer, i assume.

      This kettle saved my life when we had coffee morning at our house. It held enough tea for 7 people (served in standard cup and saucer not mugs) also it was still hot for the late comers. It truly saved me from slaying in the kitchen. I would recommend it as it’s beautiful as is useful.
