Summary: Bought it approx 2 and a half years and used it a lot in this time. It is a great and attractive toaster but there are problems. Firstly the 'temperature dials' make no difference whatsoever. They make the toast exactly the same on 1 as they do on 5.
3 years on - updated review - some operational issues you would not expect at this price...

Summary: Have to agree with Barry U in that the consistency of level of toasting is quite patchy. Our daughter likes her toast very very lightly toasted so we set the timer to number 2. Results are varied, but mostly it means one side of the bread is toasted, while the other side is still whitish looking.
Summary: This is absolutely fantastic.....use it every day.....easy adjustments..... brilliant colour ..... looks fab ..... everybody admires it ... grandchildren love playing with it too. And it is so powerful it even throws the toast high enough in the air to catch ala 'Morecambe and Wise' comedy sketch !
Summary: I have had this toaster for a couple of years now. Working ok, good to have the different settings, really useful. The reason for only 3 stars: * the toasting is not entirely even , I.e the edges on one side get browner before the rest of the toast.
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...
Summary: I purchased this toaster along with the matching kettle and espresso machine in 2012, the toaster has stood the test of time and is still working perfectly. The toaster looks very high quality, I always receive compliments as I feel it looks very stylish.
