December 24, 2010Absolutely Perfect
"I just purchased some loose leaf tea and the person gave me the temps and times for the various teas. Breville was right on so now there is no thinking at all to get a perfect cup of tea. I am thinking of purchasing another one to put at the office. The ease of use of this machine makes me like tea even more. I purchased this product about a week ago. I hope the Tea Maker is well made and I don't have any problems.down the line. So far I am totally satisfied."
December 11, 2010LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS TEA MAKER!!
"We are blown away by the quality and ease of use. We've been having tea at least twice a day and lovin' it! We like how the "keep warm" feature automatically goes off whenever the pot is removed from the unit. That is a definite safety feature. The water heats up so much faster than boiling water in a teapot on the stove. You can set the machine to brew, walk away, and come back to perfectly brewed tea. It is great to have all the options for the different types of teas and let the machine correctly brew each one.
Thank you, Breville, for a great product!"
December 8, 2010Love it!
"I was easily able to make the tea without needing to read the directions, the buttons and display are intuitive and there is a nice loud beep when your tea is ready. I have not yet played with the timer feature or custom overrides but will let you know how well they work later. I will also do a comparative review between Zarafina and the Breville once I have gotten used to the Breville.
The cord is wrapped around the base and needs to be unwound not tugged on - so the cord is plenty long enough now!
The auto-on feature is amazing, life changing, and delicious! You set the time for it to start the steep, put in the water and leaves, and wake up to freshly brewed tea. I've now used it twice and will keep using it daily. It is a slight bit stressful to have to select your tea the night before, but only a little.
The default settings (green, strong) work fine when you aren't sure what to do with a tea, and the ability to adjust those (custom time and temp) are KEY features. I know what it plans to do, and can adjust it to what I know I prefer for certain teas. I can go up or down in 30 second intervals.
I thoroughly enjoy that it also acts as a variable temperature electric kettle if you don't want to have it brew up the tea.
It is easy to hand clean, I have not considered putting it into the dishwasher as I use it too often and so have not bothered to validate if some parts are dishwasher safe or not.
The filter on the kettle lid is a nice touch to keep out some of the particles that do make it out of the leaf basket once you've steeped the tea.
It BEEPS clearly and loudly when it is done (this is great for those who are easily distracted like me). The entire thing, aside from the beep, is very silent aside from the sound of boiling.
If you could not guess, I am in love.
The worse I could come up with so far after a few solid days of use is:
It tends to get condensation up along the inside of the glass whenever I brew tea. There is nothing wrong with this I just find it looks ugly.
I do tend to get a dirty counter as the leaf basket has a perforated bottom and for some finer teas dust or chippies drop through."
December 2, 2010LOVE the tea maker LOVE the service!!
"My husband bought me the tea maker for Mother's Day/Birthday gift. I love everything about it, which is why I got sick when I cracked the craft. Not a problem with Micheal in Customer Service, he is sending me a new one. Thank you so much for the help it was quick and easy. I would highly reccomend the product and your company. "

"One machine that takes the place of the tea kettle and tea pot.
Nice feature is keeping the tea warm.
Very easy to use and convenient.
Nice size machine does not take up a lot of counter space."

"I own the Breville BTM800XL Tea Maker as well as the 800 BLXL Blender, and both are extraordinarily well-designed, high-quality, and high-performing appliances. Further, Breville USA customer service is exceptional (for instance, I lost a part for my tea maker and they sent a replacement the same day). I feel as happy and passionate about my Breville appliances as I do about my Apple MacBook Pro and iPhone 4G (yep, I'm a tech weenie) - exceptional design, function, and service. Bravo Breville."

May 28, 2010Was so good - we now have two
"As a child I always wanted a "Teasmaid" - well this does the job and does it very well. Have one downstairs for tea during the day and one upstairs to wake up to the perfect tea - and it is perfect. Well done."
