Advantages: 4 slices at a time
Disadvantages: Awkward to get browning level just right.
Just before Christmas our old Russell Hobbs toaster went to that great toaster graveyard in the sky so we asked for a new one as a prezzie. We were given a new "prestige" toaster from Argos only to find on first use that it did not even power on. So giving up on Argos we got a refund and hit the january sales. We ended up swapping our non working 2 slice toaster for the Kenwood which was a 4 slice toaster for less money.
In all honesty its a pretty basic toaster which comes in white plastic. It as the usual controls for toasting bread from heat setting 1 - 5 although i can never seem to get the slide control just right, my toast often comes out a little overdone or underdone, though i think the bread itself as a lot to do with that i.e thickness and freshness etc. The toaster as lights at the side which are illuminated blue when its on. It as a defrost button - useful if like me you sometimes forget to take the new loaf out of the freezer and it as a reheat button again useful if you get your timing of breakfast all wrong and want to just warm up the bread again while you dish up your breakfast. The toaster also has a lever which you can use to help raise the bread up out of the top (saves burning your fingers). The toaster slots are wide enough to accomodate doing a toasted sandwich in those little toast bags you can buy. It also comes with a crumb tray which is easily removed for cleaning.
So all in all its a bit of a bargain buy, nothing spectacular but it does what it says on the box and what more do you want.
Summary: Does what it says on the box.
