It has a leak just above where the spout meets the body. It shipped that way, so I am not sure why. I went to my local hardware store and talked to them about some sort of epoxy to use... Their only food safe recommendation unfortunately will not stand up to the heat. So, I have pretty much given up by now. The way I look at it is that I can get a brand new one for $20-40, so its not worth much more effort, especially if it requires me purchasing a $10 tube of epoxy that may or may not work.
