The Breville One-Touch took fourth place in our Best Tea Steeper voting, but if you’ve got the cash, it’s number one.

The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is my favorite kitchen appliance, and one of the few that I use daily. Making tea involves adding water, adding tea, and pressing a button. The Breville heats the water to the right temperature and maintains that temperature while it automatically lowers and raises the basket. You can use the presets to make all the common types of tea (or hot water), but the Breville is also fully programmable. It’s also easy to clean, and a fun conversation piece.
