The cast iron teapot will particularly appeal to purists. This is the most traditional teapot. This model of TheKitchenette is heavily inspired by Japanese art. The cast iron models have the advantage of lasting over time and retain heat. There is an enameled interior to withstand the wear of time and rust. The cast iron teapot allows to prepare intense teas that require a long infusion.
We really like this Japanese-inspired model and its particular design that makes it a unique piece and will certainly make its little effect at tea time!

This type of teapot is used with both leaves and sachets. The tea is put on the bottom of the filter and the water is poured over it, at which point all that remains is to place the plunger and leave the tea to infuse. Once the brewing time has elapsed, just push the plunger down.
In this category, Bodum is recognized for its indisputable know-how. The Eileen teapot with piston is the top model in its category. We immediately notice its unique design, a mix of glass and stainless steel that protects the teapot from unpredictable bumps. This little wonder is equipped with a large filter that allows you to capture all the aromas. Once the desired degree of infusion is reached, simply press the plunger to stop the infusion and imprison the tea leaves at the same time. Easy, right?
