Good idea! And a nice succinct review :)

Adham

I’ve been using mine for about six or seven years now and so can testify to its longevity!

Dan

Its a great way to make tea, I have two. I have had both for about a year now.

Ricky

Woah six, seven years! We have a winner! Did they ever change the design of it?

Alannah

I’ve had mine for a good 4 years now too (but I wash between uses—too many tiny bits get stuck in the mesh)… love it! I’ve never had the filter pop out unexpectedly either.

I think there’s a certain amount a variation in filter sizes, which is why some people’s pop out and some don’t. When I bought my ingenuiTEA, I bought a spare filter, figuring I’d need the replacement eventually. Well, the original filter fits fine, and I’ve never had problems, but the other one fits loosely and likes to pop out of place if I pour the water wrong :( So, after about 3 years I’m still using the original filter, even though it’s all stained.

Just used mine for the first time!!! SO AMAZING! I live in a fraternity house, though, which means that the only dishwasher we have is a high-temp sanitizer (I’m worried about my ingenuiTEA melting in there). When you guys wash it by hand, do you use soap, or just rinse it out with water?

Alannah

I use soap on mine.

Ricky

I don’t think it’ll melt, but I could be wrong. Try to put the filter and the lid in the sanitizer to test it first if anything. I generally rinse it and at the end of the week use soap or throw it into the dish washer.
