I have been using it daily since receiving it a month ago. It is great although not perfect. There is a small crease on the bottom of the teapot but it is not expected for hand-made glassware to be perfect anyway. When making tea, there is a lot of condensation on the lid and the teapot's upper half (of course), so don't expect the teapot to look as beautiful as the product pictures. When pouring the tea out, do hold the lid as otherwise it easily falls off. Despite these minor issues, I like it very much. It is compact and affordable, and looks great on the desk especially when it is empty.
