Update December 2012:
We still use this unit all the time and it has held up quite well. One note is that the coaster in the video no longer comes with the unit. We misplaced it a long time ago anyway.
However, I'm just going to note a couple of things that have made this teapot a little "bitter" for me.
First, I have three of them now. All of them leak a few drops from time to time. It's a minor thing, but you do have be cognizant of what and where you sit them during and after brewing. The tea can discolor some counter tops.
Over time, the tea tends to accumulate and discolor the plastic. Additionally, it begins to slowly clog the fine screen at the bottom that serves to filter the tea. This can be delayed by cleaning the teapot after every brewing, but it will still eventually happen. Particularly if you brew a lot of tea. You'll notice that the teas (especially fine greens) begin to drain slower. The teapot will also start retaining the last bit of tea that sits between the bottom of screen and the valve. This is because the wet tea forms a hermetic seal and the air pressure keeps that last bit of tea from draining. You have to move the teapot around a bit to get it out. Annoying, but not really a huge deal.
Sadly, there is no easy way (that I've found) to clean this screen. I've tried brushes of various compositions, as well as the green kitchen "scrubbies". I've also tried soaking in a variety of liquids, like hot soapy water and vinegar. Too much physical abrasion will damage the screen, because it's rather fragile. If you have any effective ways of cleaning yours, please leave a comment, I'd love to hear it.Read more ›
After talking with other friends, it seems like the same thing happened to them...This item would be great if it had a longer life expectancy.
The strainer at the bottom is tightly fit and I have never had an issue with it floating up or coming loose. In fact, at first I thought it was permanently attached. Just make sure that when you put it back after cleaning it that you push it in all the way. Once it gets filthy beyond repair, a replacement filter can be bought from Adagio's website for $3.
It is VERY easy to clean and it certainly does not take several minutes just to get the tea out. To dump out the tea I turn it up side down over my trash can and use a spoon to help get most of it out. Then I use water to rinse out whatever tea residue is left.
The lid IS detachable. Just open the lid and pull back at the hinge to remove it. All of the parts of the Ingenuitea can be detached which makes cleaning it really easy. Just be careful when taking it apart. To remove the bottom part I like to remove the strainer and then push the white rubber bit down until the bottom comes off. When you put it back you should see that there are little nubs that you need to align with the body. It is small so if you have big hands you may want to consider buying something else as it will probably be a bit difficult to remove the strainer since you need to stick your hand in there and pull it out.
It is made out of plastic so it will stain. To get rid of the stains without using nasty chemicals, I suggest soaking it in lemonade. I think it's the acid from the lemon juice that cleans the stains.
Also, the smell of the last tea you brewed does linger (I hand wash it, I'm not sure if it's the same if you run it through the dishwasher).Read more ›

I bought two of these and they worked great for us. My daughter and I used them for a new tea we were trying.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
Love it! The only thing I make tea in anymore. It is dishwasher safe but somewhat difficult to take apart and really clean, so mine usually has a brown tint to it.Published 8 days ago by TG
When I ordered this, I didn't realize it's not made to take apart for cleaning. Earlier models were (reflected by a number of reviews and Q&As), but they changed it at some point. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Amazon Customer

This infuser seemed like a great idea. Unfortunately, I used it a few times and stuff got caught between the filter and bottom. They say you can remove the filter. Well I tried. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Dzilizi
