What reviewers didn't like

Finer grounds may get through the filter. Borosilicate glass isn't the thickest. Filter is required to hold lid securely in place
- Heavy
Must boil water separately
The top may not stay tight with the filter in. So while the filter makes a tight seal to the beaker, the top basically just sits in the filter.
The pour spout doesn’t work with the lid on. It has a filter but this isn’t enough to stop loose tea leaves from getting transferred to your cup. The flavor of the tea produced is not as great compared to tea with the other machines.
Some tine particles of coffee can make it through the filter.
