I have the same teapot, and have never used any abrasive scrubber on it. It did however have accumulated spots of grease that could not be removed with soap and a soft dish cloth. How I have been able to remove them, is boil a full kettle of water in the teapot. So it is nice and hot. Then get a soft dry cotton towel, and then gently rub and buff the grease spots off. No abrasive scrubbers. Just a hot teapot and a soft cloth. It will look like new!

The pot setting is for keeping the cooked food warm. Crock pots are not automatic food cookers User interaction is needed to turn it on or off, much like a stove. In other words, human interaction is required. I suggest using a timer or alarm.
I've seen mixed results across the internet on this one. From personal experience, for some reason, my glass teapot left some sort of stain on my ceramic stovetop. It also took longer to heat. I then went out and bought a simple metal one and have been pretty satisfied. If cosmetics are a concern, it's not too difficult a step to pour the water into your teapot after the fact, right?
You will need:- Large cooking pot- Grinder- Tongs- Hot pads or oven mitts (mitts are recommended)- CautionPut the grinder into a large cooking pot. Fill the pot with water until the grinder is completely submerged. Make sure that the plastic parts of the grinder do not touch the bottom or sides of the pot. On the stove-top bring the water in the pot to a boil. Once the water is boiling turn off the heat. The grinder is now very hot and full of hot water so be careful not to burn yourself. Using tongs remove the grinder from the water and hold it upside down to drain most of the trapped water back into the pot. Now turn the grinder upright again to trap any remaining hot water. Using your hot pads or oven mitts grasp the glass part of the grinder in one hand and the plastic part with the other hand and pry them apart. Let both parts of the grinder dry completely then refill it and snap the plastic top back on. These make great grinders for other spices as well such as coriander. Enjoy!
Vinegar is very good at removing scaly deposits. Heat white/clear vinegar just as you would normally heat the water for your tea. After heating the vinegar, pour out and rinse thoroughly with water. If there are still deposits after this first attempt, use vinegar once again. Once you are satisfied that all the deposits have been removed, heat water in the tea pot 2-3 times to remove any smell or taste from the vinegar (before using for tea).
depends on the pots. Some is because of they type of metal. The metal turns black because actual fire will turn it when it touches the medal. Others could be grease. Some dish soaps dont get all grease off the pot. Specially if you use dish washer. Try soaking them and see if they will come clean. Dawn dish soap works great or there are products you can buy just for that purpose. good luck
My initial attempt at solving the problem was to contact the GE customer service phone line. When I explained the problem, the representative had no clue how to solve it, and referred me to the service organization. The representative at the service organization was equally clueless, and suggested scheduling a service call at $100 plus parts and labor.
This is all quite disappointing; these customer and service representatives obviously have no training in solving the simplest of problems. This is okay if GE's goal is to maximize service revenue. But, I can tell you I would be very unhappy to have a technician visit my house, for $100, only to be told I was using a pot or a pan that was designed incorrectly for a glass cook top.
I solved the problem by going to the web site www.geappliances.com, opening the user manual, and looking under trouble shooting. The first problem mentioned is exactly as described above. The problem is inappropriate cooking appliances. It is not possible to transfer heat efficiently if the pot you're using has a rim or lip on the bottom. That is, the pot must sit flat on the glass cook-top, it cannot be raised off the cooking surface by a lip that elevated the pot from the surface. These pots are designed to be used with gas flames, not a glass cook top.
