Cuisinart PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper and Kettle TEA-100
16 September 2013
Conclusion: The Cuisinart PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper and Kettle TEA-100 pales in comparison to the Breville Tea Maker BTM800XL's quality and design, but this automated tea brewer is a serviceable, more affordable option for heavy tea drinkers. Most users say it brews great-tasting tea and is easy to operate. Although there appears to be a high incidence of defective units, which may be a sign of inconsistent construction, the kettle comes with a three-year warranty.
Pros: Easy to use, assemble, Three-year warranty, Good for iced tea
Cons: Difficult to clean, Seems to lack quality control
