Black Chinese cast iron teapot Arare, decorated with a hobnail pattern, with a stainless steel filter and inner enamel coating. Available in 4 sizes: 350 - 400ml, 600ml, 800ml and 1,1L How to use and care for your cast iron teapot: 1. Before using for the first time, rinse thoroughly with hot water and immediately wipe dry with a towel. 2. Never place on an open flame or stove as this might cause the internal enamel coating to crack. The water must always be heated separately. 3. Never use dishwashing detergent to clean your teapot, nor a rough sponge, but only plain warm water. Avoid contact with salt and oil.
