I've been trying to drink more water and cut down on diet soda, but I frequently want something with more flavor than water. I love iced tea and decided that an iced tea maker might be the solution. I didn't know anything about them but decided this was the best choice after doing some research on Amazon. I got it as a Christmas gift, and it's turned out to be even better than I hoped. Put loose tea or bags in the strainer and screw it into the small pitcher lid, pour boiling water into the small pitcher and screw the lid with the attached strainer onto the pitcher, and steep for approximately 5 minutes. Add ice cubes to large pitcher until it's 3/4 full, pour in the steeped tea, and add cool water to fill. Your tea is ready to drink. It's very easy to use and care for, easy to store, and makes great tasting tea. I've made a pitcher a day ever since Xmas.

Pros
Works with bags or loose tea
Easy to prepare tea
Tea tastes delicious and doesn't get cloudy
Tea ready to drink within a minute or two of filling the large pitcher
Minimal mess and easy clean up - dishwasher safe (I don't put the strainer in the dishwasher, though)
Not bulky like the electric ones - large pitcher fits in door of fridge and takes up little room, small pitcher takes up minimal space in cabinet
Lid screws on tightly to prevent leaks

Cons:
I loathe avocado green and would have said the color was a negative prior to using it, but I love the product so much I don't care anymore

I purchased this product recently after reading about it in a cooking magazine. This beats my other iced tea makers hands down! The others are more a hassle, this is simple, drop in the loose tea, water and steep it ~ done! For anyone that is a serious iced tea drinker I'd suggest using another, larger pitcher than the 66 ounce unit that comes with this product. For us that's just a few glasses of tea and then we needed to make more. So I purchased another glass pitcher here on Amazon that is larger and we keep them both going with tea.

You will love this iced tea maker for the simple, clear (never cloudy) great tasting tea it will make!

My daughter got this for me as a Mothers Day/Birthday gift. I have 2 other electric tea makers, but have been looking for somethibg to make iced green tea with. None of the others worked. I use 7-8 tea bags, filtered water, and steeped over night. Delicious. I could not be happier with this item. For me there are no negatives, I'd say give it a try. Works much better that the electic ones, and it makes plenty for the 2 of us. I guess if I wanted more I would decant into a bigger pitchers and just keep making in this one.

First, I love ice tea. That is, I LOVE ice tea. I usually have 4 glasses a day, especially in warm weather, which is the norm in Texas. With this iced tea maker that quantity may rise.

This replaced for me a large beverage dispenser jug, and everything improved. The speed of making it--just using a small "concentrated" pitcher for brewing and transfer to the larger one is faster than getting a large jug-sized amount of water hot/boiling; the clean-up is easier even though it's two containers, because the larger jug was a pain to clean either in the dishwasher or by hand; and the best part is having cold ice tea immediately.

Also, the pitcher is handy, easy to pour and it's built great. The lid fits tight and it's easy to use.

Add to that I think the tea even tastes better!

This is a great product to make great iced tea.

I love this product! It just makes great tea!

A couple of thoughts: 1) If you let the tea steep for a half-hour or so, it makes a great concentrate. When I fill my cup, I only fill it half-way and then add water for the rest; 2) It seems the ice scratches the inside of the large pitcher, which is sort of unsightly but doesn't affect the tea quality at all.

I've been looking for something BPA free to keep my iced tea for the kids and this is perfect! I just put 4 of the big tea bags in the infuser and add boiling water and cover it. The plastic holds up great to heat and I love that the tops have a tight seal. I'll probably buy some more to keep the fresh juice I make every day.

Sadly, I have had to give up most soda. I have an acid reflux problem and soda was making it a lot worse. Also, soda cans are lined with plastic that includes bisphenol A (BPA), which was recently shown to contribute to higher systolic blood pressure (something I have a problem with). But, I still wanted cold, caffeinated drinks, and I didn't have a convenient way to make iced tea. So I bought this!

I love that this is BPA-free plastic. I do have to wash the larger pitcher by hand because it is rather tall and doesn't fit in the dishwasher. I generally wash the small pitcher by hand, as well.

Because the large pitcher is very tall (I'd estimate 18 inches, at least), you may have trouble finding a place for it in your refrigerator. I happen to have the shelves in my refrigerator door rather widely spaced, so it fits there (the footprint is small). But you may have to do some rearranging.

One small note: the instructions say to use either eight tea bags or eight tablespoons of loose tea. A tea bag contains about a teaspoon of tea, though, so I am wondering if there wasn't a typo and they meant eight teaspoons of loose tea? I'll be going through loose tea rather fast if I use eight tablespoons (which is a half cup), although it *does* fit in the infuser. At any rate, amount of tea to brew may be a matter of personal choice in terms of strength, anyway, so feel free to alter the amount to suit your own preferences.
