  • Tea maker

    I bought this tea maker because it came with a glass pitcher and was classier looking then the plastic. I was a tad disappointed that the pitcher had white writing and fill marks - wish they had used something a little less noticeable. Makes great tea tho - you can choose strong, med, or light. I tried using the sugar holder to make the sweet tea, but it just ran through the sugar and didn't dissolve over half of it into the tea, had to scrape it out to add to tea after brewing. That to me is not a big deal because its easier to add the sugar after the tea is made (less to clean up!) Overall it is nicer then the plastic ones and the tea turns out great!

  • Love it!

    This is my first tea maker, I read a lot of reviews before deciding on this particular one. It is terrific, I especially love the fact it shuts off automatically when it's brewing is complete. There really is nothing bad to say about it, it just great!

  • Perfect iced tea maker

    I bought this iced tea maker as a replacement for my old Mr. Coffee iced tea maker. This is by far a better product. It is fast and the pitcher actually fits inside my refrigerator. Would recommend to a friend.

  • Deliciious tea every time in about 10 minutes!

    The Back to Basics Tea Maker is an excellent choice for making iced tea. Here in the South iced tea reigns as the drink of choice for lunch and dinner meals. After searching and reading the reviews of home iced tea makers, I'm happy with the decision to purchase this item. It looks nice on the counter and I love the glass pitcher, which I'm proud to serve tea directly from. I don't use the markings on the pitcher, but after running water through two tea bags twice, I add the sugar to taste and finish filling with water. The ice goes in our glasses and then I pour tea over the ice, the taste is perfect for us. I store left over tea in the refrigerator with a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the pitcher to prevent any odors from altering the taste. Absolutely satisfied with my purchase. If I could change anything about the tea maker it would be a lid for the glass pitcher.

  • Back to Basics 2.5 quart Tea Maker

    This is a very nice unit, and suits our needs very well. It makes good iced tea, which is a good thing because that's why we bought it. I absolutely love the glass pitcher. However, it does not come with a lid, so creative use of plastic wrap is required. Focus Electrics/West Bend--who actually make the device--do have a plastic replacement pitcher and lid for about $15 including shipping, which I have ordered but not received yet. So, if you are all about lids there is an option. Also, in order to make iced tea, you need a LOT of ice. If you do not have an automatic ice maker, this might be a problem. I'd actually give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. (1/2 star off for the lack of lid.) Overall, great purchase, swift shipping, a good deal.
