Summary: Item as described, fast delivery and we are happy with our purchase. Its very pretty. In fact we have been inspired to purchase other DeLonghi products. No complaints just delicious toast so far, and thank you to others and their comments as it is important and has helped on many occasion to help with decisions.
Summary: This toaster looks great and when it works toasts evenly and quickly. However just outside the year guarantee the right hand side of the toaster stopped working and we have not been able to fix it. This wasnt a cheap toaster and I expected it to last much longer but from other reviews it seems to be a common fault. It's such a shame as the other side is still working 3 years on!
Summary: Good toaster, enjoying the 4-slice capability, the independent browning controls and like the retro look. On the downside, it's quite hard to clean the gutter edge at the top and to keep it as shiny as when it came out of the box. Also, the two sides don't toast to the same degree (obviously when set to the same value on the dial :)).
