First I need to say that I like using the actual herb/herbs instead of tea bags. First I feel I get more for money purchasing in bulk. I can customize my tea, and get more of the herbs beneficial products. This product is great because it sits right inside a standard coffee cup. I use 4 tablespoons of herbs, you do have to push it down into the water as you go along. Letting the herbs sit in the water for about 15 minutes, I use a spoon to turn the herbs and squeeze out the water to make sure I get everything out of it. When the time is up I stir up the herbs once last time, lift the strainer just above the cup, and squeeze out the rest of the water from the herbs.
For $5.95 it's a great deal, I feel like I have already gotten my monies worth. I do not put it in the dishwasher, I have found if I just run water over the out side, I can use my finger to clean out the herbs, and let it air dry.
