LOL !
it's a modern day teasmade !
Heat given just for giving me a chuckle on a Monday morning reminding me of the 1970's quiz shows that always seemed to have a teasmade among their prizes...
Got one at xmas for wife. Lining inside makes the water taste funny and is very hard to get rid of. Took about 100 flush throughs for it to start fading

I love these sorts of gifts - it's her gift but it conveniently makes two cups
MMMM this or a kettle MMMMM
Id love to wake up with a cup of tea, but I couldn't bring myself to have this next to the bed. Maybe when I'm an OAP...

put it on a table/windowsile
Think they would let you have it in the kitchen if you ask them nicely
Memories. The originals were of course Goblin teasmaids and every fella wanted one!!
I'm usually in such a rush in the morning that I'd need something to make the tea and drink it for me !!

These seem great, but what about the milk? I don't fancy the chances of it sitting in the cup all night, and if I've got to go to the kitchen to get it out of the fridge, I might as well just put the kettle on in there!

it comes with a flask to keep milk cool, looks like they they thought of everything.
Ordered - great stuff! Thanks OP for the find. My wife loves a morning cuppa and I hate going downstairs to make it - this is brilliant!

You could also buy a fridge for the bedroom.
I'm just as tired in the night as I am in the morning so using extra effort to fill the water and milk, tea/coffee...I just don't see the point especially when you consider the extra cleaning needed vs a simple cup and spoon.

Nice idea I guess but not beneficial, besides...you'd miss the feeling of climbing back into a nice warm bed with a cuppa you've just ran downstairs to make in the cold, maybe with a bit of toast as well for those extra lazy days.
I paid £50-odd for this a few months ago!

Use it all the time
P.S. I tried to get around the flask thing by getting UHT pots. They work really well but a word of warning, don't buy slightly out of date ones like those on certain websites that sell just out of date food.
I found that the contents just went into clumps when put in the tea (even leaving the tea to cool for a bit first didn't help) and left sediment in the bottom - eurgh!
Never had an issue with in-date ones though.

Sounds like it would be easier to move the bed into the kitchen.
I would probably knock the lot on the floor trying to switch the alarm off
love the 70's porn music in the amazon video lol
Superb Find

Thanks
Thanks dreading the cold winter mornings. Ordered!

Or if you have an ensuite you could keep the milk carton in the toilet bowl overnight (remembering not to flush when you have the middle of the night wee).
Sold mine at the carboot last sunday! :P lucky to get £4 lol. too much effort for me tbh. If you aint out of bed when it wants you to you've got Strong tea

I'm waiting on a deal for a fondue set now...
I find a kettle by my bedside to be just as effective.

It's not a teasmade.
In fact, it's nothing like a teasmade.
Obviously far too complicated for some readers here then.
Stay with a kettle folks.
You MIGHT have just managed to work out how to use one by now and you shouldn't attempt to tackle new technology at your age. oO

Nothing is more satisfying than being serviced by a gobblin' teasmaid each morning.

Just add milk....

Aye, well, not all your readers live under the ricketty-rocketty bridge. (_;)
Great price. Tempted but I just know I wouldn't use it for long and it would end up being given or packed away. Too much messing about.

You place a mug under the spout.
Press a button.

Please explain what "messing about" comprises of, in your world. oO

Ahh, I presume you've got mind-control and telekinesis off to a fine art then if you only have to place mug under spout and press a button?

Ok, then. 'Messing about in my world':

Carrying the water, milk and teabag containers downstairs (you could add extra work here and carry the whole machine downstairs and removing/washing/refilling the containers there, and you'd have the added bonus of having to reset the clock when you got back upstairs and plugged it in).
Washing out the milk container.
Discarding old teabags.
Washing teabag container out.
Taking 2 litre bottle of milk from fridge.
Pouring some into a tiny cannister.
Filling the water container with water.
Carrying back upstairs and placing water, milk and old teabag containers back onto machine.


....I've not even reached getting the cups ready and I'm already pi55ed off.



^^^^^^ Deek, I think I am safe in saying maybe this isnt the product for you, HTH (_;) (Maybe a butler would be more to your liking! :p)

Edit: Ooh hang on a minute, just thought of something, you could buy one to have in your choo choo train driver's compartment X)

Ah, just as I thought.
Please find someone who can read and ask them to tell you that this post is for an "INSTANT HOT WATER BOILER". oO
It's a gadget that ( usually) stays in the kitchen.
It holds water and at the press of a button, it dispenses about a mug of hot water.
It has nowhere to keep milk.
Or teabags.
I can not find any reason to perambulate your stairs with it either.
Hmmm. Sorry. That might confuse you.
I meant there is no reason to walk either up or down your stairs to use it.
Unless you fancy a cuppa when you're on the loo.

Y'know? You're not even clever enough to be a propper Troll.
