Rated 5 out of 5Â by AuthorMotherOther Pleased with my purchase
I had the next model down of this unit, with the basic heating unit. It got invaded by ants and besides being disgusted, I was afraid they'd short out the pot. So I replaced it with this one. It did have the strong odor that others have described, but I heated and discarded a couple of full pots before my first use and the odor never affected the flavor of my tea. It went away after a few days of use. I love the multiple selection levels for various types of tea, and the lid is much better than on my old one. It locks open, so I can leave it open after use and let the condensation evaporate. It also locks closed, so it doesn't swing open when pouring.

I love the beautiful glass carafe and the special control panel to prepare the water at just the right
temperature for my favorite teas: black, green and white.
