We are living in a fast paced world where technology changes our life in every step of the way. Most of the changes now are made to save time and make our lives more convenient. This means that even the oldest and most simple kitchen gadget boiling kettle can be improved to make our lives more comfortable and save our precious time. Do not believe that there is a way to make tea that will save you time and be more convenient? Check out our Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker Review and you will be pleasantly surprised.
What is Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker?
The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is a revolutionary gadget that will enhance your tea experience. Its fully automated tea basket moves down into the water and then up to gently agitate the tea leaves to properly infuse your tea. It is very easy to operate, just push the basket button and watch your tea being made.
Did you know that different teas like Green, Black, White or Oolong (check it out on Amazon) require different water temperatures and brewing times? You probably did, but did you follow the times or just poured the same temperature just boiled water on the tea leaves and left it for a while? I have to admit, that’s what I usually do. That’s where Breville One-Touch Tea Maker comes into help. It is fully programmable for all types of teas, temperatures and brewing times. It eliminates the guesswork for you to get the unique flavors and aromas from your tea.
You can also set up a timer on the tea maker if you want to wake up in the mornings to the aroma of your favorite tea.
Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker has the 60 minute keep warm feature, that, obviously, keeps your tea warm for up to an hour if you feel like you want another cup or want to share your tea with late guests.
And if the operator of the tea maker is forgetful there is an LCD timer to monitor freshness that shows time since last brew.
Observations and Conclusion
Unless you are a tea expert, making tea is not an easy task as it looks like. I will admit I am not a tea lover, but I do enjoy a good cup of tea from time to time. Because I do not drink tea constantly I do not own this Tea Maker but my aunt does and I addictively played with it for a couple of days.
First thoughts after using it? I LOVE it! It so easy to make a good if not a perfect cup of tea every time. Just put your tea in, set the right parameters for tea water, and time and wait. While waiting you can watch, the tea leaves through the glass, brewing freely to extract the perfect aroma.
For me as an amateur tea drinker the product is excellent, great quality, easy to operate to make perfect tea with little to no effort (except cleaning the tea leaves bowl is a little annoying), wide variety of functions for different teas, and a timer for morning tea.
However, if you are a true fan of tea you might be a little disappointed. This Gadget takes away the art of making tea. If you feel the pleasure of boiling the perfect water temperature and perfectly timing the brew, you won’t have that with Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker. With this gadget you just put the in, pour in the water, set the function and wait for the beep when the tea is done. Everything is made by the boiler, not You.
Anything bad about it? Yes, and it is quite important, well to quite a lot of people. The PRICE, it goes for almost $170 at the moment! Yes you read it correct, close to $200.
It is quite hard to give this product a rating. The quality and engineering is great. It’s features and functions do actually save your time while you get perfectly brewed tea every time. During the times where even a couple of minutes are expensive it is a great commodity. But.. the price is sooo steep. If it would anywhere under $80 or $90 it would get close to a 10/10 with this price for me the futuristic tea maker gets 8.5/10.
