Summary: I have had this toaster for a while, and my husband, son and I all hate it. Try doing 4 slices of toast, and you have two burnt and two that you have to keep putting back. We are about to have a part refurb in the kitchen, and cannot wait to replace this toaster and the kettle. Would never buy another one of this make.
Summary: Design is nice, it looks very nice in the kitchen and the cream colour and nice shiny chrome effect stainless steel looks nice. The only minus point I have found is it is quite slow to toast. On average setting of 5, although I haven't timed it, I seem to be waiting getting on for 5 minutes for the toast to pop up. It toasts it well, its just very slow. Pops up almost silently.
Summary: I love the look of this toaster, it looks very smart in the kitchen, especially if you have the matching products. However, I am slightly disappointed with one aspect of this toaster and that is that it does not pop the toasted item up very far. With toast its OK - but with muffins, crumpets or anything slightly smaller, you have to prise it out with something. Even lifting the lever up does not help raise the item much.
Summary: My last toaster was a 2 slice toaster and as my family has grown I thought I would go for a 4 slice toaster, it take a while to toast the bread and does not fit all brands of bread so you have to put them in the toaster lengthways so the top bit does not get toasted. It does not toast evenly if you are only toasting 2 slices so I have to stop it half way through and turn them over which is not always easy to remember when making breakfast for all the family
