This is a very simple and basic toaster to other toasters. It has 2 slots and can only fit 2 slices of bread in and I discovered that bigger slices of bread are difficult to fit into the slots its best for medium and small crumpets because once I got a fat crumpet stuck in there and had to tip it upside down to get it out. I found that you wait quite along time for your bread to toast on levels 2 and 3 I feel I have to turn it up to 6 to get it to toast quickly.
Does have a cleaning tray but most crumbs are left in the toaster. It does have a defrost button I have noticed that I have never used. There is also a red pop up button that I use all the time because i use the level 6 setting and it can burn easily but if you use a lower setting it dosn't toast maybe its just broken but it still works. The good thing about it is it is still working and we have had it for nearly 5 years! and it was cheap can't remember how much but less than £10
This is a fairly basic but reliable little toaster. It's very light and compact so doesn't take up much room.
Being small, it can only toast 2 slices at a time so if you've got a big family it probably wouldn't be that practical.
It has temperature settings of 1 - 6 (the 2-3 setting is usually about right for normal bread) and also has a defrost button which is useful and a button to warm through toast you didn't eject straightaway.
I've always found it to make toast as I expected and the slots are also wide enough for crumpets and bagels although not as wide as some on the market.
It has a removable crumb tray which makes it easy to clean and the outside is also easy to clean and will not smear like those with a metallic finish.
There are more advanced toasters than this on the market, with more settings, but if you just need a small toaster this does the job fine and its basic nature is reflected in the low price.
