Retro Styling at a Great Price
Member Name: rachelew
Advantages: Cooks evenly, 4 slots, great looks
Disadvantages: A little bit impractical
This toaster delivers in looks and performance but loses out in the practicality stakes somewhat. The cream finish is matt and easy to clean, it doesn't stain and tarnish like some stainless steel toasters can. The only slight problem with cleaning is the 6 small silver buttons on the front, they do become marked with fingerprints and crumbs tend to stick around them. The crumb tray makes it easy to clean the toaster out. It toasts evenly, and is well capable of taking thicker slices of bred/crumpets/pitta etc. I have experienced a few problems with the browning controls, ie the two larger silver knobs. They are fairly easy to turn accidentally when cleaning the work surface etc, so it's easy to turn the browning to maximum and get a surprise when you next use the toaster! The retro styling is fantastic, it has been mistaken for a radio in my kitchen! Very solid and looks far more expensive than it's thirty something price tag. It's style far outweighs any minor issues with practicality. Great toaster.
Summary: If this is the look you are after, it's worth it!
