I had not seen this "Flash Chill" model before and based on the pictures, like that the brewing cup was much longer then others so you do not have to brew a whole pot if you only want half. I later realized why it is called the Flash Chill and that the longer brew cup has extra bonus uses.
Unlike the other models were the brewing area is only about 1/3 of the way into the pot, this one goes almost to the bottom. It is intended for brewing a double strong half pot and then filling the rest of the maker with ice so it chill very fast, hence the "Flash Chill' name. It works great for it's intended purpose and brews great tea that can be chilled very quickly and consumed right away without waiting.
I also discovered that the longer brew cup is great for teas that expanded greatly. We have a couple of loose leaf teas that triple or quadruple in size and this handles them with room to spare. I am not a tea expert, but I believe this tea maker lets the tea expand and seep much better then if the tea was constricted like it would be in a smaller tea maker.
You can also use this large brew cup to add fresh fruit to teas after brewing, or lemonades, etc. without the seeds or pulp getting in the beverage. This additional use as an infuser is a great bonus.
Large brew cup gives lots of options
Handles boiling water right from electric kettle
Water tight seal so it can be stored on it's side
Flash Chill preparation option gives you fresh time without the wait
May be too big to stand up in all fridges, but can be laid on it's side
• it had to be a minimum 2 quarts,
• be airtight so that last night's roasted garlic chicken didn't permeate the pitcher and make for garlic tea the next day
• it couldn't be another gadget to plug in and set on the counter (I wanted to be able to put in hot water, add tea, put in the fridge and steep) and
• it had to be easy to use and clean.
This search had been going on for months and I was determined not to buy something that might be ok only to use it for watering plants or filling the dog's water bowl.
After seeing this pitcher on a flash sale site and reading more about it I was cautiously optimistic. I checked the flash sale's web price against Amazon and sure enough, cheaper. Plus I could use my prime account and get free shipping (something not available on the OTHER site). We love this thing. It met all of the "must have's" and passed beautifully. I set up a pitcher of tea at the end of each day, put it in the fridge and the next morning my family has cold, fresh brewed, clean tasting iced tea. The filter is simple to clean when loose leaf tea is used with a few shakes in the garbage and a bottle brush and it's good to go. It fits easily on any shelf in my refrigerator that would fit a normal 2 liter of pop (since it's a rather tall pitcher) and, as long as the lid is screwed on tight, I can shake the pitcher after adding some ice to the filter basket and the tea chills without leaking.
Bonus: I noticed from the promo material in the package that there is a thermal sleeve you can get for traveling and keeping you beverages cold and a citrus juicer that you can attach to the mouth of the pitcher to juice citrus directly into the beverage.
