Prestige Deco Toaster
Advantages: Simply delightfully stylish and ideal for ...well...toast!
Disadvantages: Crumb tray not very effective!
We've had this toaster for a couple of years now and it has always seemed to do the job as well as looking very retro, suave and stylish! It fits in very well with the rest of our kitchen, which we have attempted to give a proper retro feel, and is small enough not to take up too much room. (our kitchen is TINY!!!)
This toaster has a number of buttons down the side, one of which is simply to cancel or interrupt the toast function if you either get tired of waiting or decide you have changed your mind how well you want it toasted! A sliding scale at the bottom alters the setting of how well done you like your toast but the toaster will not come on or the toast descend unless the appliance is plugged in and switched on at the wall which is a pretty standard safety feature.
The other buttons include one for Bagels, though I have never used it because I like my Bagels toasted under the grill with cheese on and this would obviously just get messy if I attempted something similar in my toaster, and a defrost button in case you have forgotten to get another loaf out of the freezer the night before. Not that I have ever done anything so silly you understand but it is handy to have this function on as toaster...ahem!
It has a crumb trsay but this is where the appliance I feel lets me down. It doesn't seem to catch many crumbs (do any of them?) and I still often get left with little bitty crumbs all over my work unit. Still, nothings perfect and for a toaster, this is more than adequate for my grilled bread product needs!
Summary: Cool looking appliance for toasting bread......
