All teapots should be sold with a pair of lids, just like all suits should be sold with a pair of pairs of trousers.

That way when you inevitably damage one, the second can be swung into action.

       I know where to get a good lid...
normzone, Dec 23 2015
  

       Yes - we have 2 teapots without lids skulking in the kitchen somewhere.

       We were not aware until now that teapots knew how to skulk. Amazing.

       Most teapot manufacturers sell replacement lids.

       What if the teapot is broken ? Do the lid manufacturers also make replacement teapots ? Are these the sort than skulk ?

       What if its the pots not the lids that's faulty?

       Most teapot manufacturers will buy surplus lids.

       I'm surprised you stoop to using teapots from “manufacturers”. I would have expected handmade by hereditary peasants in the mountains of lower Tibet, at the very least.
pocmloc, Dec 23 2015
  

       Hereditary peasants are all very well and good, but they know bugger all about teapots. Mr. Spode is our usual supplier.

       This would put the custom tea pot lid makers out of business. As well as the lid arbitrageurs.   

       But as a coffee drinker, It is the mug terrorists that most concern me.

       I don't believe I have ever seen a tea pot without a hinged lid. I feel deprived. I said DEPRIVED, NOT DEPRAVED.

       Deranged ?
FlyingToaster, Dec 24 2015
  

       That too, I guess.
blissmiss, Dec 24 2015
  

       "Deranged" would be when you bumped the hinged lid and knocked the whole thing off the stove.

       I almost feel sorry for the teapots, hiding as they do at the back of cupboards behind those dusty legions of crockpots, cake tins and accidentally slightly-melted microwave tubs.   

       Perhaps in tumuli of the future, instead of brightly flashing swords encrusted with jewels, they will find teapots without lids.

       // but they know bugger all about teapots.// as do most of the hotels in the UK, judging by the way that they dribble tea onto the table, drop the lid into the cup, scald the user, or prevent the input of tea bags.*   

       *edit: the teapots, not the hotels.
Ling, Dec 25 2015
  

       You simply need to patronise a better class of hotel.
