This is a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Brewer. This is my favorite small appliance in my house. If you like Iced Tea, you'll love this machine. We are avid tea drinkers, and the tea made with the iced tea maker is the best I've ever had. Something about the process it goes through makes for an awesome quality that can't be duplicated.
It works much like a coffee pot. 1. You fill up the inside with water. 2. You put a coffee filter in the top and then place tea in the filter. It says to use loose tea, but I've never been able to find it so I just throw 4 or 5 tea bags in it. 3. You put water and ice in the pitcher (I add sugar too). 4. Turn the pot on and in just a few minutes you have amazing tea.
The only problem with this great device is that it is difficult to keep the filter holder clean. I have to scrub it with a toothbrush to get down in the grooves.
I highly recommend this to anyone looking to have great tea at home. It even comes with two pots so that when one is low, you can begin brewing the next pot and never run out.
