    Good quality, however, it doesn’t keep your tea warm once you lift the pot off the warmer. I choose the temp, make my tea, select brew time and when brew time is finished and I lift the pot to pour some tea, the keep warm function goes off. So in order to keep my tea warm for another 30 min I have to bring the tea to a boil again and then press steep time for it to go into keep warm mode. Very bad design if you ask me. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? I read manual several times trying to figure it out so I don’t think it’s user error.

    I purchased this kettle to replace an earlier Breville stainless steel kettle with a silicon window when the window began to leak after several years of heavy use. This kettle is superior. I can see the contents, there is a very fine mesh tea infuser, which is much better than the mesh balls for containing all the tiny floaty bits of loose tea blends, and a keep warm feature. It did take some practice on learning how to use the keep warm feature, but after the learning curve, is very easy. Would recommend and would purchase again.

    I love it. When giving a gift I’lol think of this. It’s easy to clean and very accurate temperature. Works wonderful.

    Was disappointed at the problems with this given the cost. Steep button wasn’t working and the magnetic lid and basket wouldn’t stay connected to lift out of pitcher. Dropped and spilled while trying to remove from the pitcher.

    So, much like the Compact model, this Breville Smart Tea Infuser is one of those products that works well in theory – really well, in fact; excellently, even.Except when you actually use it, it becomes quite clear the errors the design team made.But let’s start at the beginning:1.) Unboxing this is a simple process, and there aren’t many pieces. There’s the base, which is kept under some cardboard to prevent damage. On top is the carafe with the tea basket, tea basket lid, and carafe lid all attached. The manual is easy to understand, and there’s a quick-start guide that’s even easier.2.) Setup/sanitizing is easy: Pour some water into the carafe to the max level, set the carafe to 212F (black tea), and let it boil. Then dump the water out, wash the tea basket lid, tea basket, and carafe lid with soap – and you’re done.So, time for some tea!Following the instructions, I set the infuser to 205F, for herbal tea, hit START, and away it heated, – quickly, too. When it was done, it beeped three times, just like the manual said it would. Then all I needed to do was push the little button on the top, – which releases the magnet so you can lift the tea basket lid off without pulling the tea basket out along with it. At that point I scooped a couple of teaspoons of tea, popped them in the basket, put the tea basket lid back on, and hit the START TIMER button. You can manually set between 1 and 5 minutes, but it has built-in presets for medium strengths for each tea type. Once the timer was up, it beeped again. At that point, all you do is remove the tea basket lid along with the tea basket (by NOT holding that eject button in while pulling up), release the basket onto e.g. a plate by pressing that eject button, and then put the tea basket lid back in the center of the carafe lid – without the tea basket, of course, to keep the heat in.And here’s where the issue is: See, when the carafe and lids are cold, this all works well. I tested this all before putting water in and heating it, and I tested it again after cleaning it all and drying it – when it was all cold again. When everything is cold/room temperature, it all works great. No resistance to any of it; the lids come off without any trouble nine times out of ten. When there’s hot water in there, though? It doesn’t work pretty much at all. It really made me wonder if Breville ever tested this mechanism with hot water in it.So what goes wrong?1.) Well, with hot water, when the tea basket is in the carafe, removing the lid and basket only occasionally works. Because of the heat, either the rubber seals are expanding around the lids, or the moisture is causing it to stick – or a combination of the above, so what happens is the tea basket lid, tea basket AND carafe lid all come off together. It’s very difficult to stop this happening without pressing down on the boiling hot carafe lid while pulling up the tea basket lid. It’s infuriating, actually. This was a constant struggle through two different pots of tea at different times this evening. Both times, everything worked (90% of the time) when it was all cold, and didn’t work when it was all hot. And if all three parts come out together, you cannot remove the the tea basket without touching the hot carafe lid. Ugh.2.) The compact model of this tea infuser has a KEEP WARM function which you can manually enable/disable as you choose. With this model, it’s automatic when the tea is brewed – and lasts up to 30 minutes, but if you remove the carafe from the base it disables KEEP WARM, and you can’t re-enable it when placing the carafe back on the base without brewing again.3.) In further bad news, dropping the tea leaves into the basket just leaves them floating on the top of the water, with some tea not even making contact with the water due to the large pile of tea leaves. It’s a good idea to use a spoon to push them down into the water further so they’re actually submerged and providing tea service to the hot water!The unit is easy to clean, though getting the tea leaves out of the basket with rinsing is always a bit annoying since they like to get stuck in there. The Breville’s tea basket is no better or worse than other tea baskets, so I won’t ding it for that.Overall, there are some good things about this Breville Tea Infuser. It’s just a little ironic that it’s called the “Smart” Tea Infuser, when there’s some mind-bogglingly obvious issues with its functionality.Overall, a lovely cup of tea – but it’s more work than it should be. I was hoping (perhaps foolishly) that I would have a different experience with this larger tea infuser than the compact model, but it was not to be.3 stars out of 5. Frustrating, and a little inferior to the Compact model in terms of functionality.

    We drink a lot of tea; usually 2 liters or more every day. We had been using a “Cuisinart PerfecTemp” electric kettle that we bought from Amazon years ago. That high-quality and well-reviewed product is still available on Amazon for less than half the price of this one. It has served us well, but we wanted to see how well these new “smart” tea kettles worked. They promise a one pot easy automated tea brewing experience.In practice, this “Smart Programmable Electric Tea Infuser” is not much smarter or more programmable than our Cuisinart. There is a row of buttons to pick the water temperature, just like the Cuisinart has. If you love tea, you know that water temperature has a huge effect on flavor. With the Cuisinart, after the water reaches the desired temperature, I have to pour it in a separate teapot with my tea leaves. With the Breville, there is an infuser inside the pot, but I have to wait until the water heats up before I can add the tea leaves, so Breville doesn’t save me any time (just doesn’t require a separate teapot). Breville does have a built-in brewing timer, but all it does is beep. It does not automatically start or stop the brewing process. I have to manually add the tea leaves to start the brewing and manually remove the infuser (or pour out the tea) to end the brewing.In summary, tea brewed with the Breville tastes great, but tea also tastes great with my much cheaper Cuisinart. Breville doesn’t save me any time or effort since I cannot add the tea leaves until the water heats up and then I have to manually remove the infuser after the brewing period ends. The only advantage is that Breville does not require a separate teapot, so it does save a little counter space.BTW – the instruction manual has some recommendations for brewing times and brewing temperatures. Good quality teas will usually come with their own recommendations. I don’t trust the Breville recommendations and will always use the recommendations that come with the tea.
