Excerpt: I have drunk tea all my life, but never made it this well. I used to use a stainless steel tea ball, but it really wasn't easy to use, and it was too small to get best results. I have arthritis in my hands now, so I was using tea bags - but no more!
Excerpt: I take extreme care in using and caring for my kitchen appliances. I loved this tea kettle at first , but after some use ( a few months) I noticed it over heats the water. No matter what button I press it boils the water. Not great for brewing most teas and my favorite green.
Excerpt: I was hesitant to make this purchase because I thought for 250.00, it was a bit indulgent. I'm so pleased that I made the splurge. I drink tea everyday, and the Breville One Touch has made my tea habit that much more enjoyable! Great to look at, easy to use and excellent results.
Pros: Boils Quickly, Clear Boiling Indicator, Comfortable Grip, Tight Lid
Excerpt: Love this tea maker!!! Am pleased that it is working well after several years of use. Love the features for all the different kinds of tea. Wish the Keep Warm would last longer then an hour. Makes great tasting tea!!
Excerpt: Before this wonderful addition to our kitchen, I made our tea in a cast iron pot with thermometer and timer in hand. This Tea Maker has made life so much easier and the tea turns out perfect! I'm sure I will pull out my cast iron teapot from time to time, but for everyday use, this is fantastic!!
Pros: Boils Quickly, Clear Boiling Indicator, Comfortable Grip, Easy Time Saving, Tight Lid
Excerpt: I purchased this tea maker in February 2011. We had decided to switch our daily tea bags to loose tea, but my experience with loose tea BEFORE having this tea pot was that the tea was frequently cold by the end of the brew cycle and it seemed high maintenance.
Excerpt: I received this tea kettle as a wedding gift, and it is great! I use it at least once a day, as I am a big tea drinker. I really like how it can be used just to prepare hot water as well as tea.
