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

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.
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.
