Excellent!I bought this for my boyfriend as a christmas gift because he loves iced tea and buys the pre-brewed ones in the store for about $3 per liter. I can't even imagine how much money this has saved us already! We've used this 4-5 times a week since christmas and it still works perfectly. It makes very good tea and is very simple to use. Some things that I think could be improved on are the pitcher and the water compartment. The glass pitcher could be a little thicker, and a removable water compartment would make washing it out a lot easier. Really though, it's great the way it is.

five stars for this tea maker!This is the second one I have bought. The first one still works but I broke the carafe to it after 5 years. Yes I see a lot of reviews stating the carafe is too thin but to tell you the truth, if you watch what you do with it the carafe can last for a long time. Mine was 5 years old and it fell from the counter to the sink. The tea maker gets a 5 star from me. I have had no problems with the new one or the latter one. I love the tea flavor from the brew. You can make a slow brew or fast brew depending on how strong you like your tea. I do suggest that you transfer the tea to another pitcher to put in fridge. This may be were a lot of people complain of the carafe breaking.

Love this ice tea makerI used my last Mr. Coffee ice makers until they died. This one is my favorite with the glass pitcher. I can put it on my table and its not all coffee stained as my old plastic pitchers were. People talk about glass pitchers breaking, so I ordered a couple extra pitchers. However, I let the tea brew into a plastic beer pitcher and then transfer it into the glass pitcher. My husband says not necessary as long as you don't put ice cubes in the glass pitcher and let hot tea drip into it. The change in temperatures is what could possibly lead to pitcher breaking. The sleek black unit looks good on my kitchen counter also.

Pitcher too fragileI love the iced tea maker. It makes great tasting tea. However, the pitcher that comes with it is so fragile that I have broken three of them. One was just putting ice in it, and one was cracked when I took it out of the dishwasher, although it is supposed to be dishwasher safe. It would be great if Mr. Coffee would make a sturdier class pitcher to go along with a quality tea maker.

Great Machine Awful PitcherI own one of these as does my mother. In the course of a year and a half, I have broken one pitcher while my mother has broken three. Only one of those pitchers broke because it was hit against something (the side of the sink). The pitcher has broken dropping ice cubes into it. The pitcher has broken pouring ice cubes into it gently down the side as it was tilted at an angle (so the bottom of the pitcher wouldn't break by simply dropping ice into it)! There just doesn't seem to be a safe way to handle this pitcher. I would agree with a previous reviewer who suggests that the glass of the pitcher is weakened when hot water pours into it while it has ice in it. Major design flaw.

Best Hot or Cold Tea Maker Out There!I'm tickled pink that I can get multiple pitchers. I've had my machine for almost a year now & the original pitcher is intact. I make my hot tea in it instead of the other [Zarafina and Cuisinart (coffee)] makers because it is such an awesome design. I plan to buy 2 more machines as well... will line them up on the kitchen counter! Perhaps those the experience breakage should transfer the tea to another container for moving it in an out of the fridge. Another alternative is simply to find a container that lines up with the output and holds enough liquid - that's it!

Love it!I debated for months whether to buy this, based on mixed reviews regarding the quality of the carafe (easily broken/cracked), the unit leaking, etc. I've had it over a month now and have made a pitcher of iced tea about every 5 days. I love it! It's so much better than the plastic model. I can get the pitcher itself cleaner (no staining) and it's not as fragile as others have made it seem. It's so easy to make the tea - don't have to use a paper filter - and I like that you can adjust the strength. I'm only using 6 tea bags now, where with the plastic model I was using twice that! The size of the pitcher fits better in my fridge, too. Overall, VERY happy that I took the gamble and tried this!

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.
