Oster BVST-TM23 Iced Tea Maker

 Black 2 1/2 quarts with Steeping Lever and Swivelhead Brew Basket

Black 2 1/2 quarts with Steeping Lever and Swivelhead Brew Basket

When it comes to features, the Oster BVST-TM23 Iced-Tea Maker is one product that does not scrimp. Both the interior and exterior features of this iced tea maker are quite unique in Oster products, or at least made by the company to be different from other products available in the market. With these unique features come the dependability Oster products are known for.

Interior Features
  • The brew basket has a unique swivelhead design, which makes it easier to put either coffee, loose tea leaves or tea bags in. The brew head is also removable, making it easier to clean.
  • The water reservoir hold just the right amount of water, making sure that there won't be unnecessary refills because of low capacity.
  • The 2 1/2 quart capacity of the pitcher makes it very ideal for use in both small and slightly larger groups. That's a lot of iced tea or iced coffee for everyone!

    Exterior Features
  • The glass pitcher, with its black lid, as well as the rest of the black unit setup makes for a very elegant iced tea maker. Unlike most plain-looking iced tea makers, the black finish lends sleekness to the Oster BVST-TM23. As for the pitcher, it looks elegant enough to be used without having to use another pitcher that looks better.
  • The steeping control lever makes it easy to control the strength of the iced coffee or iced tea the maker will be produced. No need to guess or estimate, as the steeping control is quite precise and consistent.
  • There is no need to worry about overheating the unit or using excess electricity, as the auto shut-off and on/off indicator lights are a great aid for the user. Another indicator that's very useful for users is the reservoir's water window, which shows the water level, so that the user won't need to guess how much water is left.

    The unique and functional features of this iced tea maker make it a very good buy. Not a lot of iced tea makers in the market have these unique and very useful features. The classic yet unique look of the entire unit is just something to behold in a piece of kitchen equipment. Not a lot of implements used in the kitchen look as sleek as this one.


    A common problem among users of this product is the fact that after a few batches when the unit would work, it will just suddenly not turn on anymore. For some unknown reason, it would just not function even if it is plugged and the switch is turned on. The indicator light will not show anything and the unit does not do anything.

  • easy to clean
  • features that put the user in mind
  • commendable capacity
  • durable pitcher
  • classy design


  • refuses to work after some time
