Russell Hobbs 13766
Advantages: looks good and toasts bread well
I seem to not have much luck when it comes to my kitchen appliances and on average I need to replace something every six months or so. The only appliance I have never had any sort of trouble with is my toaster which is a Russell Hobbs classic toaster model no: 13766.
I have had it now for nearly two years and in all that time there has never been a problem with it and it is still going strong despite being used almost every day.
The Russell Hobbs classic is a polished stainless steel 2 slice toaster that has a modern look but at the same time it really is a classic shape so would fit in with most kitchen designs. As my kitchen appliances are all stainless steel this goes really well in my kitchen and I think it looks much more expensive than it actually was.
I like the polished steel instead of the brushed as I think it gives the whole kitchen a much needed lift and looks really elegant sitting on the work top.
The bread slots are a really good size and easily wide and long enough to accommodate most bread whereas some toasters will only take the smaller slices.
It has all the usual functions expected on a modern toaster such as a defrost button, variable browning and a reheat button.
There is also the added benefit of a lever for lifting your toast in and out of the toaster. This is great to check on toast to see if it is cooked to your liking and being able to just lift in back in for another few seconds of browning if you wish.
I just wanted something simple that would brown my toast perfectly every day without having to worry about it burning and this toaster fits the bill perfectly.
The polished steel still looks lovely and shiny and seems to be easier to clean that the brushed stainless steel which I always find difficult to keep looking good. There is also a removable crumb tray which is so handy for keeping the inside clean and really does manage to get all the crumbs that fall from the toast.
I forget how much I paid exactly for this toaster but it wasn't expensive around £25 which is great considering how well it has lasted me and I can highly recommend it to anyone else out there looking for a really nice looking uncomplicated 2 slice toaster that is value for money and will last a long time.
Summary: Excellent little toaster
