I am a big fan of night time snacks which drives my girlfriend crazy. However I needed a good quality toaster so she wouldnt go too mad about burnt smells or crumbs going everywhere. I made good on the first promise.
Looks wise, the toaster is excellent, its body is a nice matte black colour, the pictures make it look quite shiny but I think it looks slightly more matte. The chrome silver parts looks slick and give the toaster a rather grandiose look about it. I absolutely love the small windows for each two slice that gives you the option of how much you want your items toasted. It also has some buttons that are for different items which look pretty good.
The Delonghi does what it is supposed to, it creates good quality toast in a timely fashion. I find that the toast is evenly distributed as with some other cheaper options you can get bits that are over and underdone. I like the option to choose your toast colour as some people like it to only be slightly toasted and other's burnt. My also love the fact it has some buttons that say things like bagel on it.I'm still not entirely sure the difference that it makes, however my bagels always come out looking and tasting pretty good!
I have found that cleaning toasters is always a bit of a bother and this is no exception. Crumbs get everywhere! The best way to clean this is to turn it upside down a shake to get crumbs out. It sounds so old fashioned but it still is the easiest way of cleaning it.
We bought our Delonghi from Argos for £45. I think this is a pretty reasonable price for this toaster, it seems the same price everywhere else. Yes you can get cheaper toasters however I would recommend this.
