Chris Freytag Iced Tea Maker w/ Fruit Infusion Pitcher
Blue shade is not appealing!
I was very excited to get this after reading the reviews but just could not get past the ugly shade of Blue. I really wanted a white one and thought I would try the blue. My roomate disliked it as much as I did so back it goes. I am sure if the color is a appealing to someone they would love the product. We did not even bother to try it.
Easy To Use
I've been using a coffee pot for yesrs to brew my tea. Same concept behind this but with a more attractive look. The only disappointment is that the pitcher scrstches if you are not careful. It takes a few times to get the right strength as well.
Wow! Love This Ice Tea Pitcher W/ Infusion.
I was getting tired of the same old boring tea w/ my Mr. Coffee tea maker. I thought I would give this a chance. I am so glad I did! I love the infusion part of it. I put lemon in the infusion chamber and put 2 family size tea bags. The only 2 things I noticed was the granulated sweetener crusted and did not go in w/ the tea. I also noticed when I pulled the tea maker away so I could put more sweetener in and stir it, some tea went all over my counter. This is why I gave it 4 stars. I am very happy w/ my purchase.
I was so excited to get this machine, but after getting it i am dissapointed, it looks junky (cheaply made) so it cannot set on my counter top, I will have to find a cabinet to store it in. When I used the sugar chamber it left some sugar in it, and that was a mess, it did not let all the water through, so when I unplugged it and went to move it, I had iced tea coming out and making a mess. This is my first use and the baskets are stained up already, I tried to get the stains off but was unsuccesful. I see a lot of complaints about the pour spout, well I have not gotten that far yet, but I'm sure it will be the same as the rest, making a mess. I will try this machine one more time and put the sugar in with the ice and see how that works, if I still have a big mess, then back it goes!!!!
Does a great job
Only con is that the pitcher opening when you pour it to fast goes all over the place It should have a better opening at the side you pour with.Works well and it is a great idea that you can put the sugar in it while it is brewing Lov it.
another great purchase from QVC!!!
this is my first Ice Tea maker. I have had it aprox a week and a half and have used it 4 times. for some people the strongest setting might not be strong enough--but for me its perfect. due wish it had a full cover for lid as one person said so it wouldn't pick up the smells of ref. but what it do is place a big zip lock bag over top that seems to work! but as for making tea its great and like the place to put your sugar
Really love it!
I love ice tea and this machine is wonderful!! Sooo easy to use. I even do a half batch with the already used tea bags and it is still good tea. A little bit weaker but I still like it and I get more bang for my buck that way. Great machine and a great price. I can make hot tea too if I want it that way. I haven't played with the loose tea or the infuser yet but that will be fun I'm sure.
Just got this product and am happy with the sturdiness of the components - nothing seems flimsy or easily breakable. Used three family sized teabags and set on "strong" with great results. Because I don't have crushed ice, used a mixture of ice cubes and water to the "water" line, and the tea cooled off quickly. Would recommend!
great tea maker
like it--good tea. you could lose the sweetener basket and infuser for me. Also seeing the price drop lower than I paid???
very convenient to use!
got this about 10 days ago and Summer in the Carolinas means Iced Tea!! I've used my pot @ least 4 or 5 times and it's so easy to use and convenient too. I've not had the occasion to use the infuser yet but even if I don't ever, this pot was well worth the $$$. The pot size is just right so the tea doesn't get "bad" before we use it up. I transfer the tea to a more narrow,taller container so not a concern for me, but a sealed lid might be a better option too, to prevent odors from getting in...I put the strength on "strong" and only need 2 bags as we add lots of ice and lemon..
The reason I only gave it 4 Stars is because I have to keep it open to dry out before I put it back in the cabinet...a smaller compartment top w/b more handy so I could put it away open for drying purposes.
Love this ice tea maker!!! My mother in-law has one and we all made fun of her for getting this gadget but after seeing how fast, easy and good the tea turned out I had to get me one. I make herbal tea for the kids and they love it.
It makes really good tasting iced tea, but the fruit infusion part doesn't
really effect the taste of the tea enough.I was dissappointed because I
thought this would be a really great feature. So if you just want it to make
iced tea then it works really well.
