I have never used a scuttle and now I am shopping for one. Still debating the style and my major concern is cleaning. I can see that easily done with a two-piece scuttle.
How do you clean your scuttle? The inside, between the walls of the scuttle, I mean. Is this even a real concern?

Not a concern to me, if it doesn't smell funky I don't clean it. I mean it is only used to keep the hot water in, it never touches my face. If you do want to clean it, just use some vinegar solution or those things for electric kettles.

My scuttles dry out pretty well between uses, since I have 6 of them in rotation. But about every 6 months, when I clean my brushes, I also let a 1:1 mix of liquid bleach and water sit in the scuttles' water reservoirs for 15-20 minutes and then dump it out. I hope that this prevents mold growth.

I have a Georgetown scuttle and I just leave the stopper out after I clean it up. If air can circulate, I don't thinks there is any thing to worry about.

I have never cleaned the inside reservoir of any of my scuttles. The water I put in there is extremely hot and when I'm through, I turn it upside down and let it drip dry.

i just cleaned mine this w/end. it's very rare for me to clean it, but i have some free time.

a bit of hot water, some dawn dish soap and a toothbrush, brought it back to looking new. the toothbrush get's in the webbed grooves (of my DB1.5) and it's able to get inside the scuttle as well.
