Tesco Value 2T07
Advantages: Cheap and works!
Disadvantages: Small bread only!
When moving into uni I wanted to own my own toaster so that it didn't get full of rubbish like many of the toasters at uni were. I went to tesco as I knew they sold cheap value electrical equipment. I saw this for only £5ish. It was In a plain whit box with the typical tesco value label and design all over. I was happy as it was going to be my very own little toaster! I wil now go into a little more detail on the product and explain why some issues you may see.
It comes in plain white with black knobs! It's not the prettiest thing to look at, but it doesnt look hideous either. It's rather small looking and looks brittle. You can't expect high quality if you only paid a fiver though. One my first use I was shocked at how Small the toast racks were, I had to stuff my toast in as it was too small. It got caught and burnt badly! So the next time I went shopping I bought a small size loaf of bread so it would fit, it still struggled to get in, but did the job. It takes a while to warm up and toast the bread, once it is warmer it toasts well and can give it a nice golden colour which I prefer! It's a buy temperamental with the slider to get the toast out, mine doesn't work all the time! Overall this toaster is a bit hit and miss. It's great value, but has lots of downsides. I belove it's a brilliant temporary toaster of if you have a very tight budget. I think it's one of the worst tesco value products I have bought though, there kettle and toastie makers are excellent compared to this. It has lasted me 2 years now and still works so it has lasted a fair while which is a good sign.
I think the next toaster I buy will be a bit more expensive. I believe you get what you pay for with electronic items. This has worked for me and allowed me to have some beloved toast! Just wish I could have toasties regular sized bread as its easier to get hold of! I am going to give this a 2 star rating as it has helped me out, but lacks quality. Worth a try if your a university student though!!!
Thanks for reading :)
