Care & Maintenance
Hard water can leave mineral deposits inside the pitcher and the brew
basket. To remove these, fill the brew basket and the pitcher with warm,
undiluted white household vinegar. Let soak for 20 minutes, then rinse.
Never use harsh, abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads or other abrasive
materials. They may cause scratches which can lead to breakage.
CAUTION! Never immerse the iced tea maker itself in water, in any other
liquid or in the dishwasher. Decalcifying your Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker
Mineral (calcium/limestone) found in the water will leave deposits in your
iced tea maker and will affect its performance. If you notice an increase in
steaming or if the pumping action stops before all of the water has been
pumped out of the appliance, it’s time to clean it.
1. Pour one quart of undiluted, white household vinegar into the water reservoir.
2. Place the pitcher lid on the pitcher and slide the pitcher into place under the iced tea maker.
3. Push the “on” button to begin the brewing cycle. After one cup of cleaner or vinegar has pumped into the pitcher, unplug the iced tea maker. Let it stand for 30 minutes.

Very good but be careful.I've had my Tea Maker for about two months now and am very pleased with it. While it brews the tea nicely there are some problems that other people have noted.
1. The pitcher is thin and fragile glass that can break easily BUT if you follow the cleaning and breaking instruction included with the machine then it should last. People who's pitchers broke most likely machine washed, banged the glass, or didn't brew properly which caused the break.
2. The machine lid is a bit flimsy, mine snapped of in the first week, but it still sits on top just fine.
All in all its a good brewer for the price in a market that doesn't have enough brewers in them, just be sure to treat it gently.

Cannot Live WIthout This!This iced tea maker is fantastic! I honestly don't know how I got along without it! I love it so much I even travel with it. I saw that one of the critical reviews mentioned that the pitcher is flimsy and shattered easily. I have to say this has not been my experience. As I mentioned above, I travel with this thing if I'm going to be away for more than a couple of days. I don't do anything special to pack the pitcher, it all just goes in a bag and thrown in the back of the SUV. I've had this unit and pitcher for well over 1 year and have had ZERO problems.

Low capacity. Too-fragile pitcher.I have brewed 8-10 times with this product, and it is easy to use and seems to work well. My main complaints are that the capacity is pretty low and the pitcher is too fragile. It’s also *very* noisy while brewing, especially toward the end of the cycle. Regarding the pitcher, mine has already developed some small cracks in the handle, and I am now afraid to even pick it up when it’s full, for fear that the handle will break off. I have read many product reviews that also complained about the picture breaking easily. It’s an elegant-looking glass pitcher, but seems way too fragile for everyday use. I would gladly pay an extra $10 for a sturdy pitcher. Regarding the capacity, I would prefer to brew about twice the quantity each time, as I am a frequent iced tea drinker.

Mr Tea from
Works as promised with major shortcomingsAt maximum setting, the brewed tea is not as strong as steeping tea bags in a pot of hot water. If you melt lots of ice cubes in it, it becomes weak. Also, the glass pitcher is extremely thin and fragile. I was afraid of putting ice cubes into the hot pitcher in fear of cracking it. I decided to transfer the hot tea into a separate plastic container for chilling. That kind of defeats the purpose of having this product considering the space it occupies on my countertop. Please Mr. Coffee ask Pyrex to make you a real glass pitcher that can withstand temperature extremes and everyday use.

Quit Working after 2-3 UsesI bought one of these from Wal-Mart and it quit working after 2 uses. I took it back and exchanged it for a new one, and the same thing happened to the second one. It stopped working after about 2 weeks of use. I like the glass pitcher, but have given up on purchasing another tea maker. I just do it the old fashioned way on the stove.

Quit working almost immediatelyI bought this one because I disliked my other one so much. The original tea maker was so much better as evidenced by the comments. I had two of the original ones and they were fantastic. I replaced it with a three quart one with the huge square plastic pitcher. I bought that one because it is the only one you can adjust the brew level. I didn't like it so when I found this one I thought I'd give it a try. Big mistake. It worked exactly 6 times. I cleaned it with water and vinegar to begin with and then used it 3 more times. It didn't work right stopping part way through the cycle the next time. I started over and it was ok. The next day I tried again and it wouldn't work at all. I went back to the old one.

Not sure about the glass 2.5 qtHad the old 3 qt plastic model for around 15 years. This newer model doesn’t seem built very strong or to last. We’ll see how it holds up. Built in swivel head seems like it will be prone to damage. Love the glass but it does seem fragile. We broke the plastic pitchers too over the years when adding ice etc. so went ahead and bought an extra glass pitcher with the new machine.
Regarding shipping: we absolutely could not believe that the tea maker and extra glass pitcher were shipped in their own manufacturers packaging and boxes. Not shipped with any extra padding or air. Could not believe that nothing was damaged ( even watched the delivery driver knock over the glass pitcher box ) but everything arrived in perfect condition!!

Very Happy with this Iced Tea MakerI just ordered a replacement pitcher for this Iced Tea Maker, I have had for 3 1/2 years. I make a fresh pitcher almost everyday, wash it in the dishwasher & put ice in the pitcher after it brews without ever having a problem. It still works and looks just like when it was new. The pitcher is thin, and I would prefer it was a bit thicker, but mine broke because I had it too close to something else in the dishwasher. I purchased another replacement pitcher, that was thicker, but it cracked after only a few months. I ordered two new Mr. Coffee pitchers, so I can have one in the dishwasher, and still have a clean one. I would be very happy if I can get 3 1/2 years out of the new ones. I will surely purchase another machine when this one quits!
