Matthew Garrett: Buying a Utah teapot


The Utah teapot was one of the early 3D reference objects. It’s canonically a Melitta but hasn’t been part of their range in a long time, so I’d been watching Ebay in the hope of one turning up. Until last week, when I discovered that a company called Friesland had apparently bought a chunk of Melitta’s range some years ago and sell the original teapot[1]. I’ve just ordered one, and am utterly unreasonably excited about this.

[1] They have them in 0.35, 0.85 and 1.4 litre sizes. I believe (based on the measurements here) that the 1.4 litre one matches the Utah teapot.
