Sabichi 2 Slice Toaster
Disadvantages: Small bread only
After my old toaster decided to, well, stop toasting, I needed a new one and after reading some positive reviews and being on something of a limited budget I found myself buying this Sabichi two slice toaster. It met my needs in many ways and thus far has proved reliable.
Two factors which influenced my decision to buy this was a) the black colour and b) the size. The colour matches the colour scheme in my kitchen and the main issue with the size is that living in a small flat the kitchen space isn't great so I needed something that didn't take up too much room on the bench. At only £13.99 too it was a bargain!
This is designed therefore for the smaller bread, the "toastie loaves" rather than normal size bread. If you buy normal size bread you will need to cut it down which is a waste. But with a small toaster that is what you can expect.
Also, the power cord is very short indeed and very slim. I thought it felt weak and flimsy at first but with the toaster not being moved and unplugged every two minutes it will suffice. The short cord though does mean that there are space restrictions and I had to re organise my kitchen to cater for it. Bad times!
The controls are often the fiddlieist bit but here they are nice and gradual. Easy to use and see as well. Each setting will suit someone and it means that, with only seven settings, it wont be long before you find the one that suits you. It has all the other controls you would expect including an auto-stop for if you want the toast out there and then and a defrost feature. Apart from the cord it feels robust, well made and durable. Its very easy to clean and shines nice when cleaned to look tidy in the kitchen. Its craftily designed to save space and easy on the eye.
The quality of the toasting is good with a nice even toasting of the bread. It works fine and has been consistent and reliable ever since purchase. It is much quicker than toasters I have used in the past which is a big benefit on rushed work day mornings.
There is little else to add really, it's a toaster than happens to toast well with a few niggly issues over bread size etc.
