    Chad's Crappy Corner!

    Chad's theme for December is "Themes Revisited". He'll be revisiting earlier themes and showing off some gadgets he and Giz Wiz Producer Jeff Needles didn't find in time. 

    Today's gadget goes back to drinking month, and it’s the Breville BTM800XL One-Touch Tea Maker. 
    And here’s what Amazon says about it: The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is a revolutionary tea experience. The fully automated tea basket moves down, then up, gently agitating the leaves to precisely infuse your tea. Push the basket button and watch the basket cycle in and out of immersion. Seeing is believing. Different teas such as Black, Green, White, and Oolong require exact water temperatures and controlled brew times to allow their unique flavors and aromas to develop during brewing. The One-Touch Tea Maker eliminates the guesswork so you can enjoy a perfect cup of tea, every time. Fully programmable for all types of tea, water temperatures, and steep times. Set the timer and wake up to the aroma of your favorite brew. And the price? Pour yourself a cup of tea before I mention it. Ready? $249.95!  


    And Chad’s take?  Chad loved the way the One Touch Tea Maker made tea. He said he was the best cup of tea he ever had. But, unfortunately that pesky $250 price tag is getting in the way of him owning one. But at least he got to use one!
