Until now, neither of which is not known when and who invented the first samovar. Many believe that Russia is the birthplace of samovar, but it is not. The first semblance of a samovar can be found in ancient Rome and China. It was a large vessel, which had a pipe and ash, the principle of his actions was the same as a conventional samovar. It is also widely believed that the first samovar yet invented Tula, who took with him to the Urals Tula smith-industrialist Nikita Demidov in 1701.

Once on the uninhabited place, missing the hot brought down, they came up with gizmo, which itself is all cooked, ushering samovar production. In Russia, a samovar was already known from 30-40 years of the xviii century. The first mention of a samovar, and samovar production is mentioned in 1745: "Register how many made and given to a noble lord Gregory Akinfievich (Demidov) different titles copper cookware in 1745 and at what price the market is 'and' property records Onega, second-class monastery ', which dates back to 1746 year, and where, among other things mentioned, and' two samovar with green copper pipes. But the available data give no idea of what shape and the device was samovar at the time. We only know that in those years samovar already used in the Urals, and later in Moscow, Tula, St. Petersburg, and in the xix century samovar appeared in Vladimir, Yaroslavl, province. Now it is difficult to say when and by whom created the first samovar, but his appearance and the production is closely connected with those important reforms and economic and political life of Russia in the Petrine era.
