This is so great. I’ve had mine for a little over a month now and I use it multiple times a day. I now drink MUCH more tea thanks to the convenience of this appliance. Definitely worth the money.

At first I was a bit irked by the short cord but then I read that it’s a safety precaution so children don’t pull it by the cord off of the counter while water is boiling and harm themselves. So that’s actually a great idea.

The holes do let very small leaves through but you can easily solve this problem by placing this in your cup while you pour your tea – http://www.amazon.com/FORLIFE-Extra-fine-Infuser-Porcelain-Dish/dp/B001JP1KPO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312356616&sr=8-1 – I searched high and low to find the infuser with the smallest holes out there – and THIS is it folks, I’ve ordered several of these for myself, friends and family.

Best tea maker out there!

Damn! I still need to get me one of those. If only to just stare at it it.

You know I’m OCD with my steeping parameters when even the customization ability of this isn’t good enough for me lol.

Ashley Bain

haha. yeah, I’m pretty OCD myself but it’s quite the great little machine.

Cofftea

Yeah I’d definitely want a lower min temp, lower min water volume, the ability to completely customize the time (not just in 30 sec increments) and the ability to completely customize the temp (not just in 5 degree increments).

Oh you’re totally just bragging by linking to THIS review ;P I’ve been intrigued by this since I first heard about it, glad to hear good things. My friend’s got a Zarafina one that worked really well for him, but apparently they don’t make that anymore.

The customization features and and water capacity on the Breville beats the Zarafina. It’s nice to look at, too. It’s totally worth it. It’s not perfect, but it’s the closest thing yet.

Thanks for posting the finest strainer you found. I ordered one with anticipation to use with my Breville that I just got today!! Can’t wait to get home and try it!!
