Iced Café Pitcher Assembly (BVMC-LV1) is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dolly from Poor Design This decanter is plastic, thin and absorbs tea and coffee stains. It does not hold up to ordinary household wear and tear. I wish that they could have used a heavier plastic or glass for the decanter. Very disappointed. I am having to replace it because of the cracks and permanent stains.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SGriesser from Leaks after two months I read a number of reviews about the tendency for this to start leaking and just thought that it was only happening to a few upset customers, but after two months it started to leak for me as well. My advice would be to find a more durable products

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shutzie27 from Easy to use, clean and pitcher fits the fridge wel My husband and I live in Phoenix, Arizona so for about six months of the year just the thought of hot coffee is untenable. It's just the two of us, so we use a little 5-cup Mr. Coffee that we love (though we wish the clock had a backlight). So every summer, about every two weeks or so, I had to lug out the 12-cup coffee maker we use when we have company, brew coffee and wait at least 2 hours for it to chill in the fridge even though I was already brewing it over ice and turned the hot plate down to its lowest setting. This coffee maker solved our problem. Yes, it brews the coffee hot (FYI, if you want a cold brew, you're actually looking for a toddy maker, not an iced coffee maker) but because there's no heating element on the bottom, as long as you BREW OVER ICE (i.e., with ice in the pitcher, as instructed) the coffee is instantly cold and ready to pour or drink. The pitcher is large, but its designed to go into the fridge and the unit sans pitcher takes up very little counter space. And, I can easily tuck it away in a cabinet during the winter. It is lower than the large 1-gallon Rubbermaid pitchers I had been using and thus fits more easily into the fridge. There is, however, a notch cut into the side of the pitcher to store the pitcher on the counter sideways, which takes up slightly less room. The pitcher and basket are both easy to clean. I have not experienced any cracking or other difficulty with the pitcher. In fact, I hope to buy another one so I can have both iced chai and coffee in the fridge. If dilution is an concern, just set the brew setting all the way to the right and use a slotted spoon to remove the ice. You'll get a bit less coffee this way, but still should last about six days drinking about 16 oz./day (judging by the tumbler I pour the coffee into). THINGS TO UNDERSTAND/KNOW BEFORE PURCHASING: -- This uses 12-cup paper filters. None are included, so have those on hand. -- This brews the coffee hot. Again, if you want cold-brewing, you're looking for a toddy maker (fingers crossed Mr. Coffee comes out with one of those soon). That said, if you brew over ice, because there is no lower heating element, the coffee is cold and ready to drink immediately. -- This is designed to have a lot of coffee ready to pour at hand. The recipes can all be halved to 1 quart instead of two, but if you're looking for individual servings or just a couple of cups, this is not the product for you. I got this on uber-sale and am happy having paid $35 for it. I don't know that I'd of been willing to give up $50.
