To @Wired: Whoever gave my husband the idea that Sorapot, instead of an IPod

was a good idea for a great Xmas present... is a f** idiot and can come & take it!

My husband's attempt to surprise me at Xmas was a success if he only meant to surprise me... This "teapot" was an overpriced piece of, eh, paperweight. If you have no intention of washing it, then do NOT get it for me!

Yeah. Now can you honestly tell me that it looks just as stylish sitting on my kitchen counter next to my high tech rice cooker, as the air-brushed picture you have shown?

Seriously? And you did at least 2 reviews of this last year? The review in May was not enough for you, and you had to give it another plug again towards year end, AND on the 2008 Wish List?

My husband, who, despite my well-known wish of getting an IPod, decided that Sorapot was just as good, if not better. It has been two months now since I am the owner of the most expensive glass teapot in the whole god damn world. Why am I pissed every time I have to gingerly take this thing apart and wash it and then assemble it together? Well, you be the judge! Sorapot or IPod??!!

I'm so sorry your Sorapot isn't to your liking. If you have any questions about how to use or clean it, just let me know. I designed it to be easier to use than a standard teapot, so perhaps the instructions I included were unclear.

If you decide that a new iPod would make you a lot happier, I'll issue your husband a complete refund for the Sorapot he bought you. I'd have a hard time deciding between the two myself.

Take care,
