Advantages: Sleek-looking device, easy to use, good for family use, a lot of good extra functions
Disadvantages: Probably not worth the asking price if you live on your own and need a basic toaster
With the old family toaster recently breaking down and refusing to work anymore (it was its time), we had to search for a new one. The Morphy Richards toaster was settled on.
The Morphy Richards is a four slice toaster, which is good if you want more than two slices at a time and can't wait, or if you live with your family as I do (no waiting around while your sister's bread toasts). This is good for me as a student because it means impatience and laziness is innate.
There are some good functions on the device that make things easier. You can control the nozzles on the side per two slices of the toaster, not just all at once, so you can control how much your individual slices of bread are toasted.
There are also three additional buttons on the side, one of which is a reheating function, one which toasts bread from frozen, and another that cancels any actions. It also comes with a removable crumb tray, which you obviously have to keep on top of - unlike some of us in this family - because it can build up quickly with excessive use.
Plus, as you can see from the picture, it's a really cool-looking machine (though ours is red, which is the best colour the toaster comes available in in my opinion). It's also been crafted well enough to be really simple to use; I doubt you'll ever have any problems using it.
As well as being well-designed, there really aren't any issues that we've had with the toaster thus far. For £44.99 though, I don't know how worth it the machine actually is. I personally can't see the point of going over a few quid for a basic toaster that does what it's supposed to do: toasting your bread (I wasn't the one that bought this toaster, coincidentally). It's not one that's required for someone who lives alone, and is obviously designed for family-use. However, if you live with others and you're not opposed to paying a bit extra, this one does look really good in your kitchen and has a few nice extra functions that you might feel make the toaster worth it.
Summary: Costly but excellent toaster
