Toasters after kettles probably the most used item in a kitchen, yet we barely give them a glance. We use them nearly every day and yet hardly ever change their settings or use them for anything else but two slices of bread.
We have this toaster and it has been a faithful little piece of kitchenalia for about 5 years now, we bought it for £40 and it has been used nearly every day ever since and it has never ever had a single problem. After determining the correct setting for two toasted slices of bread, it has never been changed and toasts bread perfectly every single time. Like all toasters it works on a very simple manner, place bread in two slots and push down the lever. The toaster will pop the bread up after a minute or so and there you go toast to go. There is the necessary pre-popper on the right hand side in case your toast is burning or whatever and the lever can be pushed up to make getting the bread out a little easier.
The toaster comes with a warming grill which sits above the twin slots, supposedly for warming croissants or bagels but has so far to me knowledge never been used for that purpose. I mean who has? If you want to warm a croissant you stick it in the oven for 5 minutes, I mean whose only going to want one?
The toaster comes in slick black with a grey flash and isn't more intelligent than Holly.
There is a crumb tray, which I must admit is quite useful because our old toaster used to leave a right mess. The tray can be pulled out and the crumbs used to leave a trail through scary Germanic forests on the way to meeting a witch in a house made of sweets or if you live in Sheffield fed to the birds.
There are a couple of issues but they are generic toaster based, one the toaster gets hot in use and two the warming metal arms can remain hot after use, and the other remember toaster are electic so don't shove a knife in the inards to get out a stuck piece of bread.
This is a very good toaster for a decent price and let's be honest what more do you need?
