I wanted a new neti pot to replace my old plastic one. After researching, I chose this one because it is ceramic, does not have a hard-to-clean hollow handle, and is made in the USA. The colors all appear beautiful, but I chose the pearl swirl. It is more colorful than I expected (more opal than pearl), and I love it more for the color. The spout is perfect for my nose (average female size?). It makes my neti routine feel fancy if that is possible. Thank you, Baraka!
