Advantages: Price, easy clean
Disadvantages: Some bread doesn't fit in it properly.
As a university student, I have to buy things on the cheap and when I was preparing to move into a house that came with a George Forman yet did not have a toaster, I knew I had to buy one since I tend to burn toast that I make under the grill.
I bought this for just under £5 in September 2010 from (of course) Sainsbury's. It says basics on it but I didn't expect much from it because of the price.
This was, however, an amazing toaster. Toast comes out lovely and warm. The bread is toasted yet soft on the inside. For the price of this product, I am not complaining.
The toaster has a knob on it that you twist around depending on how well done you like your bread. Another feature that I like about this toaster is that it has a removable bottom which measn you can clear away crumbs from the toaster out with so much ease.
For some, the white may look cheap but to myself it looks fine. One review says that it's a hard colour to maintain. I have to disagree with this reviewer. I believe the white looks much cleaner for longer than the chrome/metal covered ones you get. This is because on these chrome ones you can tend to see finger marks easier and wiping down the toaster can make it look smeary and unclean unless you take real care. With the cheap, white toaster, all it needs is a quick wipe over and finger marks are barely visible.
The one niggle I have with this toaster is that depending on what bread you use, you can have of soft bit of bread on your toast right at the top. However, for the price it will have a flaw.
I would recommend this toaster for anyone that wants to buy one on a budget. I have had worse toast from more expensive toasters.
Summary: Perfect for a student.
