Chris Freytag Back to Basics 2.5 Quart Iced Tea Maker
I love tea, and i'am tried of buying it. Only use four small tea bags or two large bag and mind come out perfect. LOVE IT!!!
I have had this product for a long time. I love it. We have had no issues with it at all. It is used everyday and sometimes twice a day. Wouldn't live without it!!!!!!!!
This is the best thing since sliced bread. I love iced tea and now i can easily make it at home. This is a great product. No issues at all.
Great Tea, But.....
Simply to use, quick good tea. Love it, but it only worked about 4 months then stopped brewing. The water was hot but ran through the machine too fast.
Makes Great Tea
Great gift. We had delicious tea all Christmas and New Years and had lots of company. Easy and quick to make. Very pretty pitcher for serving also.
The color is awful. The directions are confusing. It's cheaply made. I'll likely be returning this product.
good tea making machine
Purchased this tea maker probably six months ago and I use it every week. Makes good tea and my children love it. Yes, it is plastic. I put it away when not in use. Ordering two more today for my granddaughter and grandson.
No winner here!! Very cheaply made. Leaks all over the back side of unit when you open the top. The base for the pitcher is poorly designed and you have to tip the pitcher to get it back on the base. Had to run water through it over 10 times to get plastic flavor out of the water. Makes tea, if you don't mind that the strength dial (when turned to strong) pops the lid up. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS ONE!!!
I love my new iced tea maker
I began using the electric ice tea maker for safety reasons. Boiling hot tea on the stove top can be dangerous. Also if you leave it unattended and get caught up doing other chores around the house its a real safety concern. So I LOVE electric tea makers and the automatic shut off when its ready!!! I have owned 3 previous tea makers and this one makes the best tea yet. It maybe the double sprinkler head which seems to make the tea have a richer taste. I LOVE the red color and its so cheerful. This was my very first QVC purchase and I am so excited about it!!
Chris Freytag Ice Tea Maker
I wanted an appliance that would make ice tea in large amounts and quickly. It is a good looking unit but that is not important to me. I put it away when I am done brewing anyway. When the tea is complete, I just put the pitcher away in the refrigerator. The whole unit including the pitcher is plastic, but what isn't these days. I am now experimenting with using a variety of tea flavors in each brew. So far so good. I would recommend this product because of its ease of use and how fast it makes the tea.
Makes Great Iced Tea
I have made two pitchers of iced tea since I received this tea maker last week. I have had no problems with it, except for the fact the manual says it holds 9 regular size tea bags for strong tea. If I use the regular size flow-thru tea bags, the lid of the maker does not shut tight with the other two baskets in it. I solved the problem by putting 7 where the bags are supposed to go and putting two bags where you put loose tea.
The maker does not drip. It does what it is supposed to do, and makes good tea. I am sorry I waited too long to order the Chris Freytag Fruit Infuser Iced Tea Maker.
I ordered the red, and it is an odd looking red. It is not a darker red. The pitcher is large(tall and wide)meant to look fancy, and the lid for the pitcher is not a closed lid.
The baskets are a good idea, have handles and are baskets are rather flimsy.
All in all, I am not sorry I ordered it.
Another Best Purchase
I have never had an iced tea maker before, and I just love this one! It is the fastest way to make a great pitcher of tea and I use fewer tea bags. It makes the tea quickly and brings out a much better flavor. Cleanup is a snap.
