Do teapot warmers work?

Pei | Oct 26, 200607:00 PM     29

Now that the weather's getting cooler, I'm in the market for a good teapot.

I think I have my heart set on a Brown Betty for aesthetic and quality reasons, but am wondering if people have advice about keeping tea warm once it's in the pot.

I know, I should just make a fresh pot when the old one gets cold, but it takes me a long time to finish a big pot by myself!

Do the teapots with warmers (and tealights) below them work? Do most teapots fare will with direct contact with a flame, however tiny?

Would I be better off knitting myself a wool/felted tea cozy?
