“ With cool touch sides „
I bought this toaster, a while ago for under £5, at the time I didn't think it would last too long but it has and it has done a great job.
The toaster itself is quite small and it is white. The toaster is easy to clean and had a removable crumb tray. It is extremely easy to set up and use. The toaster holds two slices of bread and there is a dial on the front for you to adjust how well you want your bread toasted.
When the bread is toasted to your liking it will pop up, there is also a re-heat button on the toaster, but I have not used this yet. My toast always comes out perfectly and I am very happy with the toaster. The only negative thing I would have to say about the toaster is that it only holds two slices of bread, but I did know this when I bought it and for the price, I cant complain.
I would recommend this toaster, it is a good toaster for a great price.
I must admit, ive always been a girl to like a bargain and when i saw this little cookworks toaster looking at me with its puppydog eyes from inside Argos for the measly sum of £4 i had to buy it.
Okay, it wasnt the puppydog eyes, but my long serving toaster had finally taken the long dirt nap after being bodyslammed by my dear other half after a lads night out, i needed a cheap and cheerful replacement. After looking at pages and pages of £50 toasters i really thought Argos had found their sense here. I mean, it toasts bread, how many features can you want!
So... many different lads nights outs and breakfasts later, my little cookworks is still going strong. With its variable settings for all the family (my other half likes his toast essentially burnt, where i like mine the equivalent of swiping a lighter underneath - cookworks can handle them all) and its defrost button the cookworks is ideal for the small kitchen.
I am reliably informed that the cookworks features "coolwall" technology and as i have yet to burn myself i can assure you its the truth! All joking aside though, this is an ideal toaster for a small family or those who live alone. The only real negative i can think is that you might want to upgrade to the cookworks four-slice if you are trying to feed breakky to a hungry family.
Easily wipes clean with plastic sides and has a removable crumb tray to save shaking the life out the poor soul over the bin.
3 years on, im chuffed with my little cookworks, worth every penny :)
I nearly successfully killed my toaster by dropping a key ring accidentally into it the smell of burning plastic was awful, however I managed to remove it and despite pleas from my son that I was poisoning him I continued to use it. One week later my husband knocked it off the work unit and this time much to my sons delight it was terminal. So off I went to Argos in search of a new one. I went with an open mind; no special make only requirement was coolwall and preferably a two slice one so my old cover would fit. I flicked through the pages and the cheapest a Cookworks 2-slice coolwall fitted all my requirements and at £7.99 seemed a real bargain. I checked availability and it was in stock and was coming up at £6.99 even better, I hurried to the check out to make my purchase. At this point I remember I had and old points card from Somerfield (now defunct) in my purse and asked if I could still use it. Yes no problem came the reply and that brought the price down to £1.99.What a bargain!! So what had I got for my money, a lovely white two-slice toaster with a cool wall and like all modern appliances had the plug already attached. I removed all the packaging and this included a lot of polystyrene and plugged it in Next step in went my two slices of bread and after setting the dial to the required colour of the toast I depressed the handle and waited. Up popped the toast beautifully browned and ready to butter. Another feature available is the re-heat button which I have not tried yet. It also has an easily removable crumb tray unlike my old one, which I had to shake violently over the bin. Another feature I like is not being able to depress the handle if the plug is not switched on, a quality not available with my old model as many a time I waited on my toast only to find the plug had been removed. The cool wall is a must if you have children as it saves little fingers getting burnt or clumsy old ones in my case.
I am delighted with my purchase and I highly recommend it. Cookworks is a make only available at Argos I think and comes with a one-year guarantee.
Dooyoo fancy a bit of hot stuff each morning I doo ...... The Cookworks toaster . ************************ It’s possibly the most cheapest toaster around at the moment . After moving into our new home we were making do with the grill to make toast , as we seemed to lose out toaster whilst moving . ‘How do you lose a toaster ?’ you ask we have no idea . Well toast under the grill – it tastes good but the novelty wears off soon . Procedure : You have to wait for the grill to warm up . *Then you have to watch over your toast *Then turn over your toast then watch over it again . *Then you have the added hassle of swapping bits over the bits at the front always do first . I was so sick of wasting so much time and burning so much toast that I decided to go to Argos , to investigate in a toaster . Well there was where me and my new toaster met . There it was sat in the bargain basket , looking lonely priced at a amazing price off 4.99 . 4.99 for a Cookworks 2 slice toaster not bad eh ? , Before the sale they were previously priced at 11.99 I think . Great saving great toaster ! It’s got 7 settings for browning , and is suitable for frozen bread . Procedure for use : Pop toast in , it pops up when ready ! This saves so much time , I can have a wash and my toast is there waiting , never burnt . It has cool wall sides and has a cancel button , so your toast pops up if you think it’s ready before time ( can happen if the breads a bit dry ) .This saves having to switch the toaster off at the mains and digging it out which I’ve had to do with other models in the past . It’s crumb tray is at the side , usually they are at the front so it saves tipping the toaster over when the tray is stuck , which again I’ve had to do in the past . For 4.99 you can go wrong , so hurry down to A
