The last time I bought an electric tea pot I was so excited about it, that I immediately came here and reviewed it, only to have to come back a few weeks later and change the review.
This is one of the pots I replaced the old one with and I’ve had it for 2 months now and it looks like this is a keeper :)
I love having the different buttons to set the temperature for different types of tea. The lid comes off completely, so it is a dream to clean and remove lingering moisture from (hence, no rusting, which quickly became a problem with the first pot).
I wish it had separate brewing and warming pots like the Real Tea maker by Nesco (yes, I bought that one too and I use it strictly for pots of black tea because there is no temperature control on it, but it also works really well). I sometimes have to dash back to remove the infuser when the timer goes off. Otherwise this is a great machine!
And it is still half off with free shipping from Mr. Coffee http://www.mrcoffee.com/specialty/hot-tea-makers/
which is way cheaper than some of the dream machines I’ve looked at but knew I couldn’t buy.
