I was really excited about this for some holiday gifts, but the metal basket is a thin mesh compared to the other leaf infuser. The silicone top just doesn't sit in it well and the metal is very delicate and sharp. Customer service was great in returning the unopened one, but they don't return opened accessories. If you're between this one and the other infusers, I would definitely get one of the other ones. It's a bummer because this one is so dang cute!
