White 3-Quart with Pitcher and Auto Shut Off

White 3-Quart with Pitcher and Auto Shut Off

The Mr. Coffee TM70 is a 3-quart plastic iced-tea maker that works with loose or bagged tea for that perfect iced tea for hot summers. You never have to go through the long process of tea making again with this iced tea maker, which sports a dishwasher-safe pitcher and auto-shut off feature.


Interior Features
  • Eliminate the need to keep an eye on your iced-tea with the auto shut off feature. Simply turn the unit on and wait for it to turn off when the brewing of tea bags and tea leaves is done.
  • The adjustable steeping control allows users to adjust the brewing time for a more flavorful taste. When you are done, you can simply remove the brew basket, which easily lifts out of the iced tea maker for fast and easy cleaning. There's an optional water filtration system, which removes 97% of chlorine from the water.

    Exterior Features

  • The iced tea maker comes with a dishwasher-safe pitcher for easier cleaning. You can also measure how much water you are going to need with the water window reservoir. This feature is clearly visible from the outside. The non-drip spout also prevents messy spills.
  • Aside from the stepping lever for adjusting the brew strength, the unit also has water and ice markings on the pitcher to measure the water and iced tea content.
  • The unit sports a simple on and off button with a power indicator light and auto shut off for safety. The auto shut off feature works well in letting you know that the tea is done brewing.
  • The water reservoir lid keeps the water in and prevents spilling. However, it is still easy to open when you need to pour water in.

    Dimension Specifications

    Depth: 12-1/2 inches
    Height: 15-1/2 inches
    Width: 8-1/2 inches
    Total volume: 3 quartz

    Advantages

    Automated tea-making gives you good tea without having to go through the process of boiling and sifting through tea leaves. The tea maker is not too large, which means it does not take up a lot of space on your kitchen counter. For something as cheap as about $20, the tea maker is perfect for those who want a cheap tea brewing machine at home. It has easy to use controls to start brewing tea, unlike other tea makers, which can be too complicated. Spilling won't be a problem since the lid of the water reservoir is sealed.

    Disadvantages

    It uses up a lot of electricity because it is a uni-tasking gadget. The unit requires the use of filters. It needs a fair amount of ice. Those who do not have a lot of ice will need about 4 trays of ice to make 3 quarts of iced tea. Water temperature cannot be easily controlled.With frequent use, the tea holder will start to crack and it will tend to drip hot water from all sides of the tea maker. The seeping basket tends to fill up very fast yet empties slowly. It could be too small to prevent overflow.

    Pros

  • automated, less hassle when making tea
  • saves on countertop space
  • very affordable for a portable iced tea maker
  • no-frills design
  • sealed lid of water reservoir

    Cons

  • uses a lot of electricity
  • needs a fair amount of ice
  • water temperature cannot be easily controlled
  • seeping basket fills up fast and empties slowly

    what is the hole in the resevoir in the back of it? The water spills out of it when filled to over the 1 quart capacity.
