Looking to Cool Off? Over 11,900 Amazon Shoppers Swear by This Time-Saving Iced Tea Maker
On those sweltering summer days when temperatures hit well above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, there are few things besides an iced cold beverage and a blasting air conditioner that can keep you cool. And while it's easy to put ice into a hot cup of coffee or tea, you're often left with a sad, watered-down version of your favorite beverage that ultimately doesn't do the trick. Fortunately, making your favorite iced drinks at home has never been easier with the help of this little machine from Mr. Coffee, which shoppers swear makes the perfect pitcher of iced tea without turning on a hot stove.
This handy iced tea machine is essentially a two-for-one special, with an easy-to-use pitcher and brew design that produces iced tea in just minutes. It can brew up to 2 quarts in one run, with an easy-to-read indicator light that tells you when it's brewing and an automatic shut-off feature that stops the machine once it's complete. The best part? Your iced tea is already cool once it's brewed — no boiling water or chill time necessary.
To buy: Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker, $35 at amazon.com
The small removable brew basket sits right above the pitcher to accommodate loose tea or tea bags, and the tea trickles right into the pitcher for easy serving. All you need to do is fill the pitcher with ice, put your desired tea in the basket, put water in the reservoir, and hit the switch.
The gadget's pitcher is completely removable, meaning you can pop it in the fridge if you don't drink it all in one sitting. And cleaning the container is pretty simple; just handwash it with water and soap, and you're golden.
Amazon shoppers give this product over 11,900 five-star ratings, noting how it produces perfect iced tea every time. Several also say that it's an easier and faster way to make iced tea without the need to boil water over the stove.

Another whose kitchen used to get hot from boiling water over the stove raves that this item keeps their kitchen cool, while a third who uses this machine every day went so far as to call it "the best thing since sliced bread."
