Not all kitchen gadgets are gleaming devices shimmering with moving parts. Sometimes, utility is provided by something just sitting there minding its own business. Take tea, for example: not much goes on while it steeps. Another example might be ice chilling down a beverage. Finally in a trifecta of passivity, infusions require little more than placing a bunch of sliced fruits, herbs, and whatnot into a liquid. Considering the simplicity involved, it only makes sense that there would be one kitchen helper designed to do all three of these tasks.
The Primula Flavor It Beverage System 3-in-1 Infuser Pitcher, which retails for $45, is a simple device designed to brew, chill, or infuse. Creating the perfect beverage requires little more than switching among the three interchangeable inserts. The tea core includes a fine mesh screen to be used with loose-leaf tea or ground coffee, while the fruit infuser core can be used not only to flavor water with sliced fruit but could also be used in tandem with the tea insert so as to create homemade flavored tea. Finally, rounding out the BPA-free pitcher is the chill core, which is filled with a nontoxic gel. Just keep this part in the freezer and after letting the pitcher do all the work brewing and infusing, pop it in, sit back and continue relaxing with drink in hand.
