WELL THIS IS AMAZING!
I can just throw in my tea bags, put some water in it, turn it on, and I can walk away from this thing and know I can come back in 5-10 minutes and I will have a pitcher of tea ready to go into the fridge! I LOVE how it auto-shuts off when it's done too! I don't have to worry about remembering to turn it off!
One thing I will add in my review that I wished I had read in others -- the way this iced tea maker wants you to make tea is filling the pitcher up with ICE and having the tea brew on top of it. I don't have a fridge that makes ice so I make ice the old school way, and I don't have enough ice trays to fill up this pitcher!
INSTEAD, I just fill between the 2-3 quart line with COLD WATER (for the full 3 quarts of tea) and let it brew on top of that (I use a 1 gallon tea bag) and then put it in the fridge. No complaints from my family on taste, so if you don't want to make ice, or don't have a lot of ice on hand -- play around with the water levels and you will find the right dilute amount that works instead of ice.
I would recommend this for sure!!!
1. Fill pitcher to the top of the word "Water", not the water line, and pour into tea maker
2. Place 3 family size "Luzianne" iced tea bags into the brewing cup and place in maker, closing lid
3. Turn brew knob to strong and begin brewing
4. After brewing completes, pour 1.5 cups of sugar into the still warm tea. Stir until completely dissolved.
5. Add ice until tea level is about at the 2 QT line. Stir until ice is mostly dissolved.
6. Add cold water until tea reaches the 3 QT line. Stir for additional 15-30 seconds to ensure consistency.
Voila! Instantly ready to drink, perfect Southern sweet tea! Please upvote this if you find it helpful.
1) It is not guaranteed that all the tea will go directly into the pitcher. You must be very careful to align the two components perfectly or you could have a mess on the counter. As easy as this sounds, I have done it wrong several times already. You only have to mess this up a tiny bit to have a problem. It hasn't been a disaster or anything, just a slight nuisance, but I say it couldn't have cost that much to have made the two components with a more positive link-up system. Maybe make them "snap" or "click" into place or something. Or perhaps just add a downward lip on the brewer that overlaps into the pitcher spout. It isn't rocket science, Mr. Coffee. Please remember this when you do an upgrade.
2) You can't make sweet tea straight from the appliance - at least not "Southern" sweet tea. After reading the manual, I understood this to be okay, but when I dumped in sugar to my family's ages-old recipe' it just turned into a blanket of sludge and the tea came out almost clear. If you want "real" sweet tea you will just have to stir it in at the end.
3) It takes up precious counter space. It isn't fun at all washing, drying and hiding it all the time. So if you rarely ever make tea, a stove pot can actually be more practical, unless you have a couple of square feet of counter space needing a full time appliance. I don't think you could beat it for households that really go through some tea though. Besides, tea is a staple worth sacrificing for in my house.
4) NEWSFLASH - 3 quarts is not a gallon! EVERYTHING comes in gallon quantities, so why not Mr. Coffee iced tea? You will just have to learn how to make it strong and top it off to the gallon mark with cool water. I did get the hang of this pretty quickly.
Now here are some good points I discovered:
1) The TM70 is quick, safe and easy compared to boiling water in pots. It only takes about 10 minutes to have fresh tea every time and you don't have to watch it or juggle hot, sloshing water. Basically, you just pour cool water into the appliance, add tea, align the pitcher, press the button, and walk away - for hours if you need to. It will be okay. It turns itself off automatically. I can't tell you how many times a pot of water has boiled over on our stove. Several times we have forgotten and had pots boil themselves dry and nearly melt! That is no fun at all. The TM70 is GREAT in this regard.
2) The brewing pitcher has a pointy spout and is perfect for filling gallon milk jugs without a mess. Now we have a never-ending supply of clean, fresh, disposable tea containers. When one jug starts to look slightly stained we just toss it and grab another, way before the tea starts tasting funny. We have both sweet and un-sweet tea drinkers in our family and we just use the Mr. Coffee pitcher for brewing and pouring into the respective containers.
3) Use tea bags or freshly ground with a coffee filter. We do like the option of using loose, "gourmet" ground tea and we do plan to give this a try very soon.
4) Price! At a mere $28 on Amazon, this a very inexpensive kitchen appliance and there is really nothing serious to complain about. Keep the packaging and if you don't like it give it to a friend or relative as a gift.
5) Though I didn't see it mentioned in the product description when I bought it, according to the manual you can use just cool water in the pitcher instead of ice as a temperature buffer when brewing tea. (I assume either is used to rapidly cool the piping hot tea as soon as it lands in the pitcher for several good reasons.) This means you can plan for a warmer blend in the pitcher if you need to stir in sugar. The ice is just for instant "iced" tea.
All in all, the good does out-weigh the bad. We are enjoying out Mr. Coffee Tea Maker and do recommend it. It is best for large families that go through lots of tea, like ours!
A few notes:
-Make sure that the brew basket has finished draining before lifting it out. If you don't you will make a mess.
-Leave the pitcher in place when you take the basket out and it will catch any drips.
-You should rinse the basket immediately after use to prevent staining, and leave the machine open to dry to prevent mildew.
Lastly, the only annoying feature about this is that the top of the pitcher is oval, not a circle, so you can't twist the lid to seal it. Your choices are either the slotted side or the fully open side. Be careful when lifting the pitcher out of the fridge. It's a little annoying, but for the price, ease of use, deliciousness of tea, etc, this machine still gets a 5 star rating IMO. Love it! Oh- and the teal model is very pretty!!
