    Waste of money

    Tea maker arrived with the water tank leaking. Called manufacturer and was sent a new tank. Great I thought. Now I can make tea. WRONG. Put water and tea in the machine, plugged the cord in and the brewing process started without pushing the start button. After the brewing cycle stopped I waited about a half an hour for the machine to cool down and tried it again. Wouldn't start. The on button was kind of cocked. It wasn't packed well in it's box so I imagine it was damaged in shipment. Called the company again and was informed I would have to send it back to have it evaluated and then they would send me a replacement. WRONG. Took it back to Best Buy and purchased a Cuisinart DGB-650BC coffee maker. It makes great iced tea and coffee and grinds coffee beans. It was more money but I feel it was well worth it.

    This machine looks very nice and does fine at making iced tea. However, the glass pitcher is far too fragile. I was very careful with it, but it broke when I put a sponge inside to wipe it out. The company does not warrant the pitcher so I had to pay for a new one. I only had it for a few weeks. They let me buy it for $20 instead of $25, but I feel like it's intentional on their part to make such a flimsy pitcher so that you will have to buy a new one. At $60 this is not a cheap ice tea maker.

    Extremely Poor Quality

    This tea maker was $60+ and the pot broke after 2 uses while using it as intended. I returned the item and got a 2nd unit and the same thing happened after a one use. The glass pot at room temperature would shatter when the hot water/tea being made hit the ice within the pitcher (to make Iced tea). I returned that unit as well and just got my money back.

    This iced tea maker was recommended to me by the sales associate who sold me the over-the-range microwave. She was persuasive without being pushy. I alternate between using this product and another iced tea maker that I purchased previously but with which I had trouble due to a fragile pitcher. I recommend this recent purchase to anyone desiring a quality product for making iced tea (just follow the instructions and recommendations!).

    This tea maker is really cool. I gave it to my mom for Christmas and she uses it all the time. It does it all for you, preheats the tea and all you have to do is add ice to the carafe (plus lemon and sugar or orange slices). Works better than I thought it would! I didn't receive free product or a discount for this review.

    I was looking to get one of these for a good price when the, "Daily Deal" came up one morning. This is pretty neat. It does what it should do, cleans up easily and makes great tasting tea. The glass carafe is made of very thin glass, so extra caution is needed when using it.

    Works quickly, but the carafe is fragile

    This brews nicely, especially since you can adjust the strength, but the carafe is fragile. The brewing, where you place the tea bags, does occasionally dribble water over the edge, so you should place this on something other than your countertops.

    The second timeI added ice to the pitcher it cracked and broke on the bottom. I had to buy another pitcher for $25 which did not make me happy. Now I brew the tea and add to a plastic pitcher that has the ice.

    The first tea maker did not work after my third use and Best Buy replaced the tea maker. I have used the new tea maker for three weeks. I purchased this tea maker because the carafe or pitcher was glass. The last two tea makers had plastic pitchers which cracked with usage.

    Good appliance - Fragile Carafe

    This iced tea maker works fairly well like most in it's class. The carafe however is way too fragile. I broke mine stirring the tea very lightly and carefully. I've since learned to pour the contents into a more robust container before sweetening.

    The tea pot reservoir sometimes leaks. The tea pot itself is small. The glass pot feels like it is dainty. When carrying the tea pot, it feels like the glass handle is going to break off. It looks great with my stainless and black appliances. I am thinking of returning this item.

    Removable tank and basket make this convenient to use. Plus its look makes leaving it out on the counter possible. Only way to improve would be to have a second lid to use for storage of the pitcher in the refrigerator.

    This is a great iced tea maker. Every bit as good as making sun tea but in a fraction of the time. The best results are with tea leaves. I have been using black tea leaves from my latest trip to China and its fantastic.

    I really like using this. Its easy and convenient. You're not having to stand over it while you can be doing other things. Doesn't take long at all to make tea. Taste like restaurant style.

    This makes the best ice tea ever. Simple to use and the large glass carafe with the measurements on it make this simple to use. You can just set it and it will automatically shut itself off. Great in the summer

    I don't have to wait all day for coffee, why should I have to wait all day for tea. This thing is awesome! Start it up when I start breakfast/lunch/dinner and perfect iced tea is ready brfore everything else is.

    I really like this ice tea maker. The glass pitcher sold me vs. plastic pitchers. But the options to adjust the strength of the brew, use tea bags or loose leaf tea, ease of cleaning, etc. make this an awesome tea maker.

    This produce is easy to use. The way you put the pitcher in assures that it won’t leak. It also has a filter so you can use loose tea. Also love the glass pitcher. Great ice tea maker.

    Makes perfect iced tea. The only complaint is the glass pitcher. The glass is very thin. I'm sure it will break within the fir year. It would have been better if the picture was made from plastic or a more durable glass.
