Drink Gevalia:All the time
Length of use:So long I can't remember
Take Gevalia:With milk and sugar
I bought one, and then another one! Yup I love this brewer so I bought a second one to have decaf along with regular at ALL times. The sleek pitcher design is great to easily fit on/in door rack of fridge or side by side on usual shelf, both using approx same space as 2 half gallons of milk. My house keeper loves it and it's ease of use so much I just bought her one as a birthday gift!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Size of pitcher...

How many ounces is the pitcher and can you use tea bags or is this strictly to be used with loose tea? How long does it take to brew a pitcher of tea in this iced tea maker? Looks like something I would love to purchase if I knew a little more about the item. Thank you.
over 2 quarts, but whats stopping you from making 1, 2, 3, 4, rounds and filling a huge-large container-thermos? It brews in less than 10 minutes!

If I ordered a " Gevalia Iced Tea Maker " why did I received a Hamilton Beach one instead?

Same one plus Hamilton Beach manufacturers this product. I have 2 made by Hamilton Beach and just ordered another from Gevalia for a gift!

is the pitcher glass or plastic

Glass would be too heavy and breakable if dropped. The brewer uses a hot/cold durable dishwasher safe odorless plastic, however you could always just pour brewed tea into a glass pitcher after if desired.

Can this be used to brew loose tea

I have a tea maker that has a special little basket just to brew loose tea.
Does this maker have the same setup?
Yes of course. Just scoop-measure enough for 2 quarts and how strong you like your tea. The brewer tea 'basket' has fine mesh holes just for bulk tea however bags work as well.

Does this make hot tea first?

Yes, it 'brews' the tea just like your drip coffee maker. However the tea brew-drips right onto-into the approx 4 trays of ice waiting in the carafe...in my fridge a portion of the ice will last 2-3 days in the carafe along with the tea...hellooooo "ice tea" it's called

Can I use regular tea bags when I'm out of gevalia tea?

Yes and I found if you line up overlap-stack the bags sorta like shingles on your roof, it utilizes every drop for better stronger flavor.
