We bought this toaster in the hope that we would save on electricity, it only being a two slicer and us all having breakfast at different times.
I think, in the long term, it was a bit of a mistake however.
The design is quite stylish, in brushed chrome effect it looks quite fetching on my black counter tops. Some of its features aren't bad either. It has a crumb tray that removes on a push action, a cancel button and another saying 'crumpet' although I've not used that one.
There is a dial which sets how brown you want your toast, but I've found that anything more than 1 can have a cremating effect, which I'm not too keen on.
It's fairly easy to clean and is reliable after three years of use.
In hindsight, I would have been better off spending my £40 (House of Fraser) on a four slice toaster. I think it might be OK if you are single or a couple but with a family of five who always seem to have someone staying over at the weekends, it's not up to the mark. When it finally blows up I will get myself a bigger toaster, promise.
In my opinion, this toaster is dissapointing! the toaster itself is a fine product, however, the high prics would put many people off i think. this toaster only has two slots for bread whilst other toasters, many cheaper than this one, have the capacity to hold 4, or even 6 slices at once! what this toaster lacks in number of slots, makes up for in the width of the slots! the wide slots mean that thick, home made bread can easily be toasted, or even hot cross buns! which i think is a must for all toasters! the toaster also has a crumb tray facility which makes cleaning the toaster much easier, which is very handy. the toaster also has a cancel button which s very useful for controling the length of time your toast is down for. overall, i think the product itself is very good, however i believe many people will be put off by the price!
