      awesome tea maker

      Works great.
      The glass seems brittle but, has lasted and durable.

      I'm buying one for my mom.

      Works well but some drawbacks

      Really like that the picture is glass and has option for either tea bag or tea leaf. Drawbacks are: 1) tea bag holder, tea leaf holder, & sugar blender ARE NOT dishwasher...Read complete review

      Really like that the picture is glass and has option for either tea bag or tea leaf. Drawbacks are: 1) tea bag holder, tea leaf holder, & sugar blender ARE NOT dishwasher safe, 2) when you remove the tea bag holder from the tea maker to discard, tea drips everywhere, you have to place a towel under it to take the tea bag to the trash can. Our previous tea maker was a 10 year old west bend that had a plastic pitcher but had a mechanism that trapped tea drip.

      Since day 1 this iced tea maker has never worked. It takes about 30 minutes to slowly drip and puts out about 1/4 cup of tea even though the water holder is full. I am ready to throw it out the window!!!

      Great Iced Tea Maker

      Comments about Back to Basics Iced Tea Maker:

      I really like this iced tea maker. It allows you to control the strength, as well as what type of tea (loose or bag) you use. I love the glass pitcher, although I worry about breaking it, which is my problem not the tea maker's. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it tends to belch out a bunch of tea long after you have taken out the pitcher, which leaves a puddle of tea. To avoid this I tap on the dispensing nozzle lightly after it is finished brewing, to make sure the last of the tea is exhumed. Be careful doing this if the tea is still hot or you might burn yourself.

      Wish the pitcher was available to order seperately. Other than that, this is the best tea maker around. No leaks, makes great tea.

        I use it to make iced tea, and it is perfect for that task. I've tried many others, but this is the best. The quality of the pitcher makes this one better than the others.

        I already have one and have used it everyday for a couple years. The 2 I purchased were gifts. So fast to make more tea when running low at mealtime. Tea tastes great in the glass pitcher. You can make it as weak or strong as you like
