Breville BTWM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker Review
The Breville BTWM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker does it all on its own. With variable temperature control and automated tea basket cycle—yes, this kettle has a basket that moves up and down to agitate tea leaves for a more thorough brew—all you have to do is press one button and tea will be steeped to perfection.
Each button on the Breville BTWM800XL is labeled as the optimal setting for black, green, white, and oolong tea, completely taking guesswork out of the brewing process.
The German-made Schott glass kettle is durable and stain resistant, meaning that this kettle doesn’t just brew a mean cup of tea, but looks really good doing it.
The coolest feature on this kettle may be its timed start feature. That way you can set the kettle to start brewing at a certain time, like maybe when you first wake up in the morning. There’s nothing better than getting out of bed to a hot cup of your favorite tea! And, if you’re a little too fond of the snooze button, the kettle will keep tea warm for up to 60 minutes. It even has a time that tells you how long your tea has been ready!
Some reviews complain that this machine has a large countertop footprint—it is one of the biggest tea makers on this list, with a 1.5 liter capacity—so we only recommend the Breville for people who are going to be using it on a consistent basis.
