Well I was skeptical after reading the other reviews but decided to try it. I like how you can use any pitcher you want. But I love that if you set it to strong it actually brews strong (too strong for me). The sugar chamber was ok, but I use sweet n low, so I use far less then a cup, but I can assume it would be ok with a cup. Other reviewers said it got on their countertop, I do not see how this could possibably happen. It does also have a double shower head system which helps make the tea stronger. It took about 5-10 minutes to brew a pitcher. The only thing I dont like is to not use the drip tray you have to remove all the baskets before you remove the pitcher, but that is what the drip tray is for. And with the Mr coffee and such my counters were always a mess. Out of the 7-8 tea makers Iv tried this is my favorite.

This replaced an earlier West Bend model that we had used for years. This one is just as good or better. Really like the style and ease of use. Four tea bags is enough although the directions call for up to seven. Makes perfect iced tea quickly. We do not use the sugar compartment that has been the subject of other complaints.

Great iced tea maker. Quick set up right out of the box. Add water, ice, sugar, tea bags/or leaves. 7 minutes later you get smooth delicious tasting iced tea. I don't use sugar in my tea, so did not use the sweetener tray. I like my tea strong, so I used 9 bags of mango peach tea, then brewed at the strongest level. There was no dripping while I put water in the machine, nor was there any water dripping during the brewing process. There is a lot of steam that comes out from the top of the machine, and that may be what some people are confusing with dripping water. I also had absolutely no dripping when pouring tea from the carafe with the lid on, into my glass. Yes, the carafe is plastic, but it is very sturdy and attractive looking, and fits neatly and nicely on the top shelf of the refrigerator. The tea is iced cold straight out of the carafe and tastes smooth, delicious and refreshing. This beats making tea in a pyrex measuring cup in the microwave. I don't have to worry that I left the tea bags in too long or too short of a time. Takes the guess work out of making great tea AND there's no mess. I'm very happy with my choice of iced tea makers.

** Update ** Made an Arnold Palmer (half lemonade and half iced tea) with my iced tea maker. Add a can of frozen lemonade into the bottom of the carafe with the ice and brew like usual. Really good!

**one more update** Have done a lot of experimenting with the machine and found a great way to save a bit of money. I love mango tea, but find the specialty tea's to be pricey, so i brew 5 bags of Lipton black tea bags and 4 flavored tea bags. It still tastes strong and refreshing. If I want to sweeten it up a bit with out sugar, I pour in about 1/2 a cup of diet cranberry juice with the ice into the carafe. Just make sure you leave out some ice so it doesn't overflow while brewing.

This is my third Iced Tea maker I have owned. I love it. It makes great Tea. My original pitcher mine came with was glass and it broke. One of the best features about this iced tea maker, is you can use any pitcher with it. GREAT FEATURE. I often will pre-brew 2-3 pitchers of tea for a party or dinner. I now have 2 acrylic pitchers I alternate and use with this machine.

I have since purchased this as a gift - and it now comes with a plastic pitcher. I still love that you can use any pitcher with it!! A great buy.

I purchased this brewer from Target although you can also get it from Hammacher Schlemmer. After I brewed the first pitcher of tea, I set it on the counter and the entire bottom fell out of the pitcher. There was hot, wet sugar everywhere: on the counters, inside the drawers and the cabinets, and on all their contents. I learned that as often as you try to clean up wet sugar, you will always have sugar left. I called the company and asked if this happened frequently. The rep said that it did not happen often, but that it did happen. I asked if it would happen again, and she assured me that it would not happen with the pitcher she was sending. And the new one has been fine. I think that if I were buying one of these machines that I would ask for the unbreakable pitcher to be sent before I tried it.
However, there are many other problems too. When sugar is put in the basket, the company recommends that you wet the basket so that the sugar won't fall into the pitcher prematurely. That is not the problem. The problem is that the sugar does not completely dissolve while the tea is brewing through it. So you end up with a glob of wet sugar still in the basket. The baskets are badly made so that tea and sugar collect in the bottom between two pieces plastic in each basket. So when you try to remove the baskets after brewing, tea and sugar pour from under the baskets. My solution to this is to always have a paper towel under the pitcher. Not pretty. Also during this process, tea and especially sugar splash on to the sides of the tea maker. There is a brew strength dial, but I don't think that this makes any difference. I wanted this set because I think that it looks better than the others available and the pitcher is glass.
