Tips on buying / acquiring secondhand models

Please read our Safety warning. If you want to use a teasmade regularly it is best to avoid a vintage model unless you are a confident mechanical engineer or electrician - or have access to one.

Common models from the late 1960s to the 1980s sell for between £5 and £35 depending on condition. Models from the 1950s and early 1960s fetch £35 to £75. Pre WW2 models may go up to £150, and the very oldest and rarest may command over £200.

There are not many collectors so prices are not generally inflated, but remember, you’ll pay more if you buy in the winter, especially before Christmas.

Beware of false claims of rarity or age. For example the Hawkins Classic is often advertised as Art Deco when in fact it dates from 1963.
