The 10 Best Samovars

This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Almost every culture has a relationship to tea. The Russians, however, took things a step further by inventing the samovar in the 1700s. Since then, this trusty hot water dispenser has found a home in places like Iran, Japan, Turkey, and the United States. Today, there are a range of traditional stovetop and newer electric models available, so there should be one to fit every need. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 13, 2019:

We realize that some people will be making tea for just themselves and their family, which is why we included options like the Saki Tea Maker 1.7 L and Kahramanlar Kugu, which are just the right size for home use. For those who are planning on entertaining guests, the Raya Home Modern, Home N Kitchenware Collection Double Teakettle, and Saki Electric 3.2L have large capacities that allow you to keep everyone's cup topped off. To ensure the traditionalists didn't feel left out, we included the Handcraftideas Turkish TP-103.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
