Does anyone know where I can find a top for a Corning Ware teapot? It was a small back top and there was a small piece of metal on the inside of the top. I contacted Corning Wear and was told they no longer make the tea pot. It was also a small pot. Thank you.

Check your flea markets or antique stores. I have bought several of these corningware teapots there. Some have been complete with the tea leaf holder in the lid, others with just the lids. They can vary in prices there so just keep checking around for the lowest/best price. Good luck.
Look up www.replacements.com you will find your missing pot lid there I bet. They are located up the road from our house AND are huge. One can take tours witin their building AND it is incredible how many different dishes there are that they are re-selling.
If you have dishes or parts of dishes you can sell "them" to them also (by mail). They handle everything. You must go to their site to see just how big their business is. Keep us informed on what you end up doing and if you indeed do find or locate the piece that you are searching for.

I have a Corningware teapot (6 cup) that has no lid. I am trying to find somewhere to purchase the lid.

As I remember, the lids were a bit on the expensive side and so was the shipping and handling. In the long run, it's been worth it, though. One place not to try is the CorningWare outlet store. We stopped there and they don't have replacement parts. You might want to call the CorningWare # to get prices and then compare with just buying a CorningWare teapot with a lid on eBay. There are lots listed and some have steel lids. I'd definitely choose them over those with plastic lids that will break eventually. (10/15/2008)

I see these type teapots at garage sales plus are listed on eBay and I'll bet that you'd pay more to get the replacement lid than if you just bought another teapot with the lid. You might look at eBay and see if anyone is selling just a lid. Like perhaps they broke the pot and decided to sell the lid for someone that needs it. Good luck. (10/18/2008)
