I've had this teasmade for a while, and it's fab. My parents had a swan teasmade when I was little, in fact my mum still uses it, I'm pretty sure it's the same one, so it's clearly well made.
My husband bought me this as I love a cuppa in bed in the morning. I absolutely love it. I set it up the night before and place a small amount of milk in a cup. In warm weather you could even put a milk ice cube in before bed so the milk doesnt spoil. Tea bag goes in the ceramic jug and when the alarm goes off, tea is brewing. Of course you could put coffee in the jug and have that instead. It boils quickly, although it is rather noisy. The water then pours through in to the jug before the alarm goes off.
Before use you have to run boiling water through a few times. I found it took around a week to get rid of the chemically taste, but it soon disappeared.
The ceramic jug could easily make two cups of tea. It's easy to clean and set back up, and very easy to use. No more going downstairs in the cold to boil the kettle, I can come round in bed with a cup of tea and the radio before braving getting out of bed.
One thing that isn't perfect is that I like my tea very hot, and sometimes by the time it has brewed it's cooled off slightly. I'm sure I could rectify this with a little tea cosy.
The light behind the clock is quite bright. I don't have it right next to my bed but if it was it might disturb your sleep.
The alarm is quite quiet but it's loud enough to wake me up. In fact I usually wake to the water boiling. It's a nice machine, looks modern and stylish, and does the job perfectly.
