Almost, but not quite, perfect Review by Guest
I have had this tea maker for over a year and love it but it would be perfect if it: 1. Would automaticlly lower the infuser unit when the water is ready. 2. The keep warm function of 30 minutes is not long enough. It should be 2 hours like most coffee makers. By the time I have drank my first cup, the warmer has turned off and I have to re-heat the remainder in my cup in the microwave.
I LOVE the temperature control which allows different water temps for various teas. LOVE the countdown steeping timer. LOVE the glass pot. Cleaning the used tea leaves from the infuser is a bit of a challenge-have to hit the side of the infuser to get them out.
But it is probably the best eletric teamaker ou there. Highly recommend it. (Posted on 1/12/13)
