To boldly go where no toaster has gone before
Member Name: Mehmet1st
Advantages: 4 toasts at one time, also a bagel, high lift facility, easy clean crumb tray
What really attracted me to this toaster was it's design, it gave the look and impression that it did a lot more than what a toaster could do (I know that sounds stupid but that's how it looked).
While I use this toaster it feels like it's so futuristic that it could also make me a cup of coffee at the same time, I haven't really read the manuals that thoroughly but it might actually be able to manage it
When I set up my toaster in its resting place where it now resides it looks absolutely stunning with its shiny bodywork.
The Delonghi CT04003 toaster is a model that can make four slices of toast at the same time with none of the messing around with those 2 slice toasters, the measurements work out to be: Height 21.0cm, Width 31.0cm and Depth 30.0cm.
On the side of the smaller toasters (the 2 bread kind) you find on the side a lever that pushes the bread down to get toasted, but with this version being a 4 bread toaster there is a second lever so one operates the left two slots and one operates the right two slots, the 2 levers are laid out differently and are positioned at the front, the same lever that lowers the bread also lifts the bread when it's toasted higher calling this "High lift facility" that allows you to take out the toast without burning yourself and because of this lift system it allows you to put in smaller items such as crumpets or small bread rolls.
In-between the levers are 8 buttons, 4 for one side and 4 for the other and they are:
Bagel - to toast one side of the bagel and warm up the other
Defrost - There is a Defrost mechanism that will make sure that if you put bread from the freezer into the toaster it will make sure that the bread is completely defrosted before it actually starts toasting.
Reheat - allowing reheating
Cancel - cancels whatever function you were using
Also on the front of the toaster You have 2 dials, one on the left and one on the right to control how brown you want your toast, number 1 being lightly tanned-5 being dark brown/black.
There is also a "Variable width slots" that allows different thickness of bread so that when it is toasting it toasts the same way as it would to thin bread and doesn't burn or get stuck in the toaster causing you to burn yourself.
Also Just to top it all off you get a one year warranty just for that piece of mind that if something happens you haven't got to worry.
After a while of using you may suddenly start to smell a burning, don't worry, what has happened is all the crumbs that have fallen off the bread collect at the bottom and over time start to burn so all you have to do is just remove the crumb tray at the base of the toaster which is a 2 second quick clean and wipe.
You can get this amazing toaster from John Lewis for £60 which is roughly what it is everywhere, but just like everyone says shop around and see where you can get it from cheaper.
It's a great toaster that can make more than two toasts at one time, it has many features and an easy way to maintain the toaster with ease.
I would advise anyone to get this toaster as long as they don't mind the price because what you get for it is second to none (for a toaster anyway).
Highly recommended by a big fan.
I wonder how you make a coffee with it...I'll get back to you on that.
Summary: A great toaster for all people whether a family or singles.
