“ Brand: Morphy Richards / 2 Slice Toaster / With Wide Slots / Crumb Tray / Cancel Button „
We have this toaster in all silver, and I have been using it for the past year. It has room for two slices of average bread, although this does not include the bread that you get if you make a medium or large loaf in a standard bread maker. Unfortunately these slices are much taller than those you get in the shops, and so poke out of the top of the toaster. If you are likely to have this problem I would probably advise purchasing a four slice toaster, so that you can put the bread in lying on its side.
The toaster is a nice slim line shape, great if you haven't go much space in your kitchen, and looks stylish, not really plastic like some do, and it only retails at £19.99, so it won't break the bank either.
In terms of features, it has a crumb tray, which is useful and stops all the crumbs getting all over the work top, and you can change the setting to cook your toast for a longer or shorter time. Apart from that it doesn't do anything particularly fancy, but what else do you really need it to do?! It tends to cook the bread evenly on both sides, and doesn't usually burn things. I can also just about cook hot cross buns cut in half, as it calls itself 'wide fit'
There are, however, a few downsides to this toaster, that have become apparent over time. Especially if you do toast particularly wide items, like hot cross buns, the edges can burn a little, and they are often difficult to get out of the toaster (the toast isn't raised very high by the release mechanism), and bits can drop to the bottom and get stuck. I think this has contributed to our toaster blowing the fuse on numerous occassions, which is a bit of a pain when all the lights in the house go off!
On balance, I think this is a good toaster most of the time, but our particular one seems to have developed a nasty habit of cutting off the electricty to our house, so for that reason I would question its reliability.
