    Good, but not perfect

    Purchased this tea maker after getting hooked on loose-leaf tea from Teavana. It's great in that you can program the water temperature to within a few degrees of recommended brew temperatures. Nice to be able to make a whole pot. While I was excited about the moving tea basket, I now pretty much leave it off, as it cuts down on the amount of time your tea spends in the water if you are making less than 32 oz of tea. Plus if you are making more than 32 oz, the basket gets totally submerged, which allows too many smaller tea leaves to escape out the top. Also the screen on the pouring edge could be finer, and a better fit to the edge of the glass. I often pour through a coffee filter if we have too many tea leaves floating after brewing. I have not found cleaning the basket to be much of a problem, but cleaning the pot can be as it's somewhat difficult to get all the areas behind the basket post clean. Had I not had $125 in gift cards, I never would have purchased this at full-price. While we do enjoy our pot, I would not purchase again at this price.

    I'm a big tea drinker, but not a huge kitchen guy, in fact by and large I consider that my boyfriend's turf. But this gadget is lovely. I had a tea maker for home already, and a nice one at that. (Adagio's TriniTEA, which is now at work. In fact this doubled as an excuse to move that there, now I kinda wanna get another of these for the office.) This one is better. It's quite a bit more pricey, but the degree of control over the temperature and steeping times, as well as doubling as a cordless electric kettle really make it a stellar deal. It's pretty easy to clean and maintain too, even with the limitation of no submerging or wetting the bottom of the carafe. It might take away some of the magic to the ritual of preparing tea yourself, but it's pretty engrossing to watch it do it's thing all the same.

    A couple of hundred bucks for a small appliance that makes tea may seem overkill but you will not be disappointed once you use it! This is the Cadillac of tea makers. The multiple options for brewing tea are impressive and it does an amazing job. I still marvel at how fast it brings water to a boil. The keep warm feature is also much appreciated to have the next cup waiting. The only negative is the staining of the bottom that seems to be getting worse. I have not researched how to properly address this staining yet but I am confident it will be a non-issue. Overall, this device brews the perfect pot of tea... everytime!

    I confess, I'm a southern girl that loves her sweet tea and I've struggled to find a tea maker that is efficient, easy to clean up and brews tea the way it's supposed to taste. I FINALLY found it with the Brewville One Touch! I use it daily and it consistently makes the best tea I've ever tasted! I LOVE it and have even thought about purchasing another as a back-up or maybe for the office. You won't be disappointed. Also, Best Buy shipped it quickly and it arrived before the estimated delivery time.

    A MUST have for people who enjoy loose leaf teas!

    I just started drinking loose leaf teas after kicking my Coke habit. I started with Teavana teas and have now branched out to other online vendors. This item is well worth the price, as you can set it to brew tea at a certain time, you can select a pre-programmed tea type setting (oolong, herbal, white, etc.) or program your own, and it brews it automatically...no need to do anything but walk away. In a few minutes, you get to enjoy perfectly brewed tea (up to 40 oz at a time). I'm extremely happy with my tea maker!

    I was very impressed with the difference a perfect pot of tea makes. With this unit, I don’t have to watch a timer or thermostat in any way. Just fill your water and tea leaves and push a button. Some time or temp adjustment may be necessary depending on your brand recommendations via your tea. Don’t settle for brewing your tea all the same. Brew temps and times vary quite a bit and this tea maker is the only thing I will use from now on! Thanks Breville! Yet again another great product!

    I absolutely love this tea maker. Another having a Krups tea maker for years, I was unsure of how I would like this Breville. Super easy to use and makes great tea! And the cleaning process is superb. It will look like a new tea maker fresh out of the box. It's expensive but worth every penny I paid for it.

    This was a wish come true. Have been wanting this teapot for a very long time and was in Best Buy when the price was right. It brews any tea that you care to drink at the appropriate temperature, and as little or as much as you would like for individual or the whole family. It is easy to clean. No fuss no muss. This is an excellent purchase.

    This tea maker is extremely easy to use and makes excellent tea. Water heats up very fast and the brewing temperature is automatically controlled based on the type of tea selected for brewing. This is a relatively expensive tea maker, but you get what you pay for, the only potential downside is that the glass pitcher is not replaceable.

    Love my new Breville tea maker. I can easily customize the temperature and steeping time for the perfect pitcher of tea. It is mostly metal and glass, cleans easily and looks beautiful on my counter. More expensive and better quality than my previous teamaker which was mostly plastic and had to be replaced every 2 years or so.

    My wife loves this tea brewer! You can set temperature, steeping time, and even have automatically dip the basket in & out of the water for you! Although the instructions indicate loose tea leaf use, it works quite well with tea bags- just increase the steeping time a couple minutes. So far, its been great!

    This is a wonderful product. It brews your tea to the precise time and temperature based on the tea your brewing. If it's green,black custom or a mate. It can also be programmed for auto start and you can wake up to fresh brewed tea. It also gives you times to brew stronger for a ice tea later. I love it!

    This is an awesome tea maker. The machine does all the work. You can set the temperature, basket (oscillates the tea), steep time, warm ( Keeps it warm), hot water function, timer etc.I love this machine for all of my teas. Sometimes I add fresh fruit in the basket with the teas.

    I love how easy it is to make the perfect cup of tea. The teapot does everything...all I have to do is add water & tea. I typically add 1 minute to my brew time on oolong & herbal teas which is a simple change. I highly recommend this product to anyone who enjoys what I refer to as "gourmet" teas.

    After owning a different brand of a tea maker for 10 years, I was doubtful that I would fine one that measured up to my last one. But Breville has accomplished that goal. It has been consistently a great cup of tea, either hot or making ice tea. Love this product and would highly recommend,

    My family loves this tea maker, simple to use. Must be carefully cleaned as not to get the outside bottom of the carafe wet. The multiple heat and steep settings make every type of tea perfectly. Worth the price, I used Best Buys price match as I found it less expensive on another site.

    This teapot does everything...it heats the water up to the proper temp according to the type of tea you are brewing, then lowers the tea basket and steeps it the proper amount of time according to the tea. Then raises itself back up. Voila...perfect tea!!

    This tea maker makes great tea. I've enjoyed it. Until the carafe cracked. The company doesn't offer a replacement. They offer a 40% off coupon to buy a new one. I'm not going to purchase another, too expensive.

    This is a great tea maker for those who really enjoy drinking tea and the steeping process. Choosing the temperature for the water and the auto steeping are great features. It is a bit finicky in terms of keeping the pot and steeper clean.

    This tea pot is the best, I've had my eye on this one for years, but was scared to pull the trigger due to the price, it never goes on sale, however wished I would have purchased it sooner it's great love it as do my family members and friends.
