The Gold Infuser is beautiful but I bought one for a gift and when I used mine, had to return the other because it's a lot of hassle to use and I know the gift receiver doesn't like working that hard to make a cup of tea. My only complaint is when I returned it, the cost for shipping was $11.51.
Gorgeous design and concept, but nearly impossible to thoroughly clean. I spent about five minutes using a pipe cleaner to remove all of the tea particles from the very narrow portion. As I don't want funky tea particles in my diffuser, cannot recommend.
