A review for those looking for a cheap iced tea maker that gets the job done with no hassle. A very reliable product with over 1,000 customer reviews that has own the “Amazon’s Choice” product tag and is the most sold Amazon product under the category of “Iced tea Machines”.

Features

Mr. Coffee’s iced tea maker is a very simple and straightforward product. It allows you to make homemade refreshing iced tea and infused ice tea using tea bags or leaves,¬†whether you prefer traditional unsweetened tea or gourmet-infused flavors it’s up to you. It has a capacity of 2 quarts and after its finishing brewing the tea it automatically shuts off. Simply add water, tea, ice and flavor ingredients (optional) and brew it. It will be ready in around 10 minutes. The brew basket is of course removable. This tea machine makes use of a 700W motor, ideal power to quickly and effienctly brew your tea.

Material

As expected it is made of ABS plastic, the commonly used material for this type of low-cost product. ABS plastic is a thermoplastic resin that possess medium strenght, being resistant and very lightweight. The product weighs 3.1 pounds (1.4kg) and has the following dimensions: 15 x 13 x 12 inches (38.1 x 33.02 x 30.48 cm). We at TechChef believe this product would have been near-perfect if the pitcher was made of glass instead of ABS plastic (without increasing price).

Contrary to what Amazon and most websites say this pitcher is NOT dishwasher-safe unless you set the water to cold. If washed with hot water the plastic of the pitcher will very quickly begin to crack. The instruction manual says the product is not dishwasher-safe so I don’t know why Amazon and most review websites promote it wrongly.

Ease of Use

An iced tea machine everyone can use, even if you never brewed homemade tea with a machine. Just add water, tea (or coffee), ice and ingredients are optional and easily have your tea ready in 10 minutes. No hassle. The entire goal of Mr. Coffee was to design an easy-to-use tea maker and they have achieved it.

Price

At the time of this review this product was priced at $19.89. We think at that price it should include a glass pitcher instead of plastic. However, this product is sold in the Mr. Coffee’s official website shop at $29.99. So for $10 less in Amazon we won’t complain about the plastic container. Therefore, the current price fits the product.

“This iced tea maker is so easy to use! There are markers on the pitcher to tell you exactly how much water to use and, where to stop with filling it with ice. You can use tea bags or, loose tea. You can also make iced coffee as well. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys iced tea or coffee! Can’t beat this price either!

1# Low-Cost Iced Tea Maker

The most sold iced tea maker on Amazon. It represents an amazing value for its current price. Quickly brews iced tea either from teag bags or leaves. The container however is poor quality. Overall it's the best iced tea maker you'll find for the cheapest price currently in the market.
