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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works as promised with major shortcomings At 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragile Tea Pitcher I bought the BVMC-TM33 tea maker online from Walmart on September 6, 2020. I have had the tea maker for 3 months and the pitcher cracked while adding ice. I contacted Mr. Coffee but they wouldn't replace the pitcher under warranty without a receipt. I guess I had deleted the receipt from my email. I know I should have kept the receipt but they could have replaced the pitcher. I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased the tea maker. According to reviews the pitcher is fragile and could be of better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Machine /Worthless Pitcher This is the second unit I have purchased...same problem...What is up with this thin GLASS PITCHER...IT IS WORTHLESS ..I would pay more if the quality of the glass were better. The pitcher breaks so so easy ..The only reason for buying it was my wife liked it ..after this Break we are DONE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this Iced Tea Maker I 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quit Working after 2-3 Uses I 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
