After owning the red Morphy Richards Accents Pyramid Kettle for a few months and really loving it I decided to get this red Morphy Richards toaster from the matching range to go with it.
The toaster is made out of glossy vibrant red stainless steel which almost has a metallic effect with silver dials and levers. It really draws your eye and is very chic while looking retro.
The toaster has a number of features including:
Wide slots with a variable width function.
9 toast settings.
High-lift function for easy removal of smaller slices of bread.
Cancel, defrost and reheat function.
Removable crumb tray.
1 year internal manufacturer's guarantee.
As well as looking great I have found that this toaster works well. The 4 slices are operated by two separate toaster units (2 slices each side) which means that you can have different settings and only need to use half of the toaster if you are only toasting 2 items which is energy efficient. The wide slots are also great and I have managed to toast crumpets and muffins without any problems or them getting stuck like they would in other toasters with slimmer slots.
The toaster can be set between 1 - 10, depending on how toasted you want your products to be, and I find that I normally have it on about a 7 or 8 to get the level of toasting that I require. I do find that it toasts quite slowly and I often think that the toast must be ready when it is not, but once you have got used to this then it is not a problem. I also really like the high lift function which helps to lift the product out of the toaster so no digging your fingers in trying to get it out.
The defrost function on the toaster is really useful when toasting frozen bread as it adjusts the setting to take account of this. It does not dry the bread out at all and seems to taste just as well as with fresh bread.
I have found that the toaster always toasts products evenly and they turn a lovely golden colour and taste crisp but not dry. The toaster is also easy to clean and has two separate crumb trays for each side which can be removed to clean out any toast crumbs.
The toaster can be bought in a range of different colours including cream and black so can fit into the design of most kitchens. It retails for about £49 but can nearly always be found for about £30 on promotion in shops such as Argos and Homebase. Overall I am very pleased with my lovely red toaster and would definitely recommend it.
