My husband bought this toaster in order to match his Porsche Design kettle and replace the previous Porsche Design toaster we had (that went to his parents) - it is a considerable toaster. It toasts in increments of 30 seconds - but beware that, like its predecessor, it toasts incredibly efficiently and stays hot for a while. This means that if you are toasting a number of slices of bread (say, you are making breakfast for a group), your last slices, unless you adjust the timer, are liable to be overly 'crisp' (read as: burnt).
However, it is even more aesthetically pleasing as its predecessor - it looks almost space-age, with the two antennae which extend upwards to hold larger pieces of bread in place or simply keep your bread warm. What I like about it is that though it is clearly designed to toast two pieces of normal-sized bread, the fact that the opening is as wide as it is means that you can toast other, more unique types of bread. I was trying to make a savory bread pudding two weeks ago, for instance, and after having made a loaf of bread, I was able to cut it into length-wise slices and toast those, as the toaster could accommodate its length.
If you are looking for a swish toaster to match a stainless steel kitchen which actually adds more value than your run of the mill toaster, then this is the toaster for you.
This is a styish and classy brushed aluminium Porsche Design Siemes toaster. Just look at it, it oozes class. If you are even thinking about buying this it means you can afford to splash this much on something that is simply all about style. It's a toaster after all, they all toast stuff and this is no different. With an easy to use dial wheel to choose how long your toastables get toasted it's hard to go wrong. It even has a digital display to tell you exactly when you need to get the butter ready so you don't end up with lovely toast and that bain of the toast world, unmelted butter. It has a warming rack which is great for heating things like croissants and an easy to remove crumb rack for quick cleaning. The dust cover is a cool feature also, a button releases it to make toast and a wheel on the side is used to close it over. A simple yet stylish piece of kitchen appliance, looks good with the Porsche Design Coffee Maker and Kettle next to it!
I got this toaster a few months ago. It is not the most versatile toaster in the world, but it does look nice.
It only has too toast slots, and if you try to put really thick slices of bread in they can get stuck. There is a digital timer to tell you how long your toast is going to take, which is useful, and the time is really easy to adjust by turning a wheel.
It also has a retractable warming rack, although this doesn't work that well.
It has a dust cover which flips over the top, so the slots aren't visible, which makes it look nice. The dust cover retracts when you push a button.
It is a good quality toaster, but expensive. I would recommend it, but not to families who would want to cook lots of toast at a time.
