Not a great experience

Summary: Successful test was done on day of purchase but subsequent to that the lights didn't work and the lever didn't stay down. Looks great but this particular unit didn't work. Very quick returns process and very efficient
Summary: This is by far the most amazing and beautifully designed piece of kit I have ever bought for £50. And it makes superb toast too! It cooks quick so the toast is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It cooks nice and evenly, both sides the same.
Summary: After a very short period, under Guarantee, the Toast will not stay down to toast. One has to hold it down to maintain toasting. Now, how to return the very large Toaster without the Packaging?! The Toaster appears to be "Form over Substance"?
Summary: One should bear in mind that the product is cheap..! The elements were not glowing in a regular pattern. The end product of toast was uneven in the cooking despite being on the high setting, my overall impression was of a poorly thought out design and produced by the lowest cost manufacturer.
Summary: First one replaced after a few months, now the second one has given up c. 2 years later. The element has gone again. We're not a big toast family, so I would expect a toaster to last for maybe 5 years, unless it was a cheap and cheerful model. Or is this planned obsolescence by RH?
Summary: Avoid. Loved the design so when my 1st stopped working after a year of v light use I paid Russell Hobbs more money for another. That broke too in the same way. Russell Hobbs didn't want to know and failed to provide any customer service at all, for this reason I will never buy a Russell Hobbs...
Summary: Beautifully styled toaster. The only downside is that this is my third one, with both the others the push down lever mechanism broke. I keep going back to the same product because it is so stylish and looks great in my kitchen, fingers crossed it will not break again.
Summary: Just bought this toaster and it's brill! We always buy Warburtons medium white bread and found we had to cut off the ends to make them fit into our previous toaster - which was a real pain! Not so with this toaster ..
