Oh, the humble toaster - what an ingenious invention! although it's probably just as quick to toast your bread under the grill, there's something extremely satisfying about popping your bread into the toaster, and having it pop back out at you a few minutes later, in a warmer, crispier, yummier state.
This toaster is most definitely cheap and cheerful - however, it's not cheap and nasty. It doesn't look especially cheap at all - the chrome finish looks quite sleek and modern, and i sometimes use at like a fairground mirror while waiting for my toast. the black ends are plastic, but not a horrid cheap-looking plastic. The plastic looks more like a good quality, durable, hard-wearing plastic. The toaster can be wiped clean on the outside, or you can use a special cleaner to make the chrome extra shiny! The outer metal casing and plastic don't get hot so there's not fear of getting burnt.
This toaster is fairly small, and is convenient if you have a small kitchen. I keep mine in a cupboard, simply because there are just two of us in the family, and we don't eat a lot of toast
this toaster is perfect for very small families (who don't eat a lot of toast) or for people living on their own. The down-side is that there are only two slots for toast, but as I said, if you're not a massive toast fiend then this doesn't really cause a problem at all
The toaster is incredibly easy to use, and you don't need any sort of instruction manual, even though it comes with one. You just pop in your toast, push down the lever thingy, and turn the dial to select how dart you want your toast. The toast generally comes out perfect every time, but if you want to stop it there is a little emergency stop button on one side.
If that isn't enough for you, there is a crumb tray which makes cleaning the toaster a lot easier, and also is very helpful if the bottom of your bread breaks up some how. The toaster nearly always toasts evenly on both sides, although sometimes does a little more on one side than the other, but I like this as the toast is perfect - not too crispy, and not too bready
The slots are relatively wide, and I often make toasted sandwiches with toasta-bags (apologies for the spelling, but a definite must-buy if you love toasties!). I use two slices of thick sliced bread, plus filling, give it a bit of a squash to keep it together, and it fits in one slot... so plenty of room for whatever you want... bagels, crumpets, teacakes, and anything else you like to put in your toaster
Although this toaster really is great, my favourite thing is how the toast pops out - you can leave your plate right in front of it, and nearly every time the toast pops out onto the plate. It's fantastic!
Overall, a great, simple toaster for small families or people living alone (or people who don't eat a lot of toast) but as it only has 2 slots its not ideal for large families (or people who eat loads of toast)
