I got this toaster as a replacement for my Breville 4 slice machine directly from Breville as the 4 slicer failed outside warranty - see my review on that one separately.
Despite my bad experience with my first Breville toaster I was pleasantly surprised with this oen.
Smart modern looks - better for the modern style kitchen rather than the "farmhouse"
Cooks from frozen - also defrosts bread which is great for making sarnies for school when you forgot to defrost the bread!
Useful crumb tray - keeps worktop area relatively clean
Helpful timer - ETA for your toast!
Heat control actually relates to how much your toast gets done (not always the case, trust me!)
***Not so good***
If you use it more than once in a row, be sure to reduce the cooking time - the more you use it in a row, the quicker it cooks the toast, which means if you leave it on the same setting toast gets progressively more cooked or burnt.
A lot of packing - this is important to some who are trying to reduce their waste.
I'm pleased overall - can't comment on value as I got this reduced from Breville, but online prices seem to be a fair value for it.
I brought this toaster when I was doing a weekly food shop at sainsbury's and on special at £20 which was a bargain.
This toaster is a stylish little two slice toaster in stainless steel, that features a digital display screen showng what number setting you have your toaster set to. Also features LED lighting system which indicates how much time you have left to cook your toast. and digital display so you can change the heat. So you have know excuse to ever burn your toast again.
The toaster stays cool while it is cooking the tosat so will not burn you. it was well worth the money. This nifty little machine also cooks your toast from frozen but also can just defrost the frozen bread for you. this toaster will cook your toast your toast to be hard on the outside but soft on the inside but to be fluffy in texture.
On an overall out look this machine is very stylish and small so will go well in a compact kitchen and also produces some very good toast!!
The breville TT68 blue ice toaster is a beautiful stylish toaster which any one would want in there kitchen because of it's look. But it's not just the look that makes it look good it's also the toast it makes. The toast that comes out of the toaster is always light, fluffy and crisp because it uses a special technology that makes the toast golden brown and never burnt. I think your always guaranteed a perfect peice of toast no matter what and this is what makes it so special.
The blue LED lights situated on the toaster are a wonderful effect on the toaster nad make it alot more attractive than a ordinary toaster.
The toaster has two bread slicers so you can cook two peices of toast at once which is just enough toast for most people.
There is one problem with it and thats the bun rack which is separate and not connected to the toaster which is a bit of a downside.
Overall i think that people should buy this product because is looks good and it gives you good toast.
at first i was reluctant to pay 40.99 for a two slice toaster how ever i now have found that Yes it was well worth my money its like a super toaster yummy toast very quickly plus is from breville wich i find are fantastic for quality and the look of this toaster is very stylish and brightens up the kitchen alot i think with this product people should really invest in this toaster
