Excerpt: Unfortunately I had to return the toaster as the slots were too small probably ok for sliced bread but not uncut, bought it to match my Kenwood kettle so was very disappointed looked at various cream toasters the best match was the Russell Hobbs which has long slots so can take a sliced bloomer comfortably.
Summary: Good until it breaks down after using less than once a week for three years! That's awful for such a pricey toaster! Kenwood offered to have a look at it to see if it's a manufacturer's fault but I would have to pay the postage! I spent that money on a new toaster from a cheaper brand that I'm sure will last at least 3 years and outlive the Kenwood Kmix! Will not be buying Kenwood again - you DO NOT get what you pay for!
