It leaks water from the water compartment; dripping over the start button. Requiring you to dry the counter. Pushing down on water compartment sometimes allows you to brew without leaking water. Glass pitcher is big, & holds plenty of iced tea. Brews tea in a short time, about 5 minutes. I wouldn't buy the Capresso again.
Product was returned. During the first cleaning cycle most of the water heated from brewing came out of the bottom of the machine. Hot water was all over my counter. I checked to make sure everything was connected correctly and tried again with the same results. This is very dangerous. In addition the pitcher which is glass is very thin and I found a crack in the glass. Avoid this product.
I purchased this at a wholesale club a couple of weeks ago. I didn't need a new tea maker but when I read that all parts can be put in the dishwasher I decided to buy it. I LOVE this tea maker. The pitcher is glass so it's easy to keep clean. The water tank comes off so it can be cleaned also.The tea tastes great. My other tea maker was made of plastic. I would have to bleach the pitcher to clean it. Also the only way to clean the tank was to run vinegar thru it. To me it just didn't seem clean doing that. I'm so glad I took a chance buying the tea maker!
