I like to use a toaster to make toast as I find it is much quicker and easier than putting it under the grill and the bread is more evenly toasted. I decided the time had come to treat myself to a new one as my old one had seen better days.

Features

I wasn't looking for anything too fancy but I did want a toaster that was adjustable so that I could toast thick slices of bread, crumpets or bread rolls. I also wanted something that looked relatively smart on the worktop and would fit into a cupboard when not in use so I trotted along to Comet to see what they had on offer. Personally I have no need for a large toaster so I was quite happy with just two slots rather than four as it would make it easy to store.

I found the Breville VTT115 on sale for just under £20 which I thought waas very reasonable. It has a stainless steel top and front and smart black sides and it was compact enough to fit into the space I had available in the cupboard.

It has a browning control in the form of a slider on the front and three little buttons, one to cancel, one is a reheat button and the third one is a defrost button. Helpfully the buttons light up when you press them so it is very easy to see that the toaster is on. The loading handle only works when the toaster is plugged in to a live power socket and they do warn you about this in the instructions presumably in case you think it isn't working!

In use

It is very simple to use (as are most toasters in my view) - plug it in, pop your bread into the slot, depress the loading handle and wait for your toast to pop up fairly quickly.

It works very effectively. It takes a little while to get used to the browning control so that you get the toast to your preferred shade but apart from that it is very simple.

There is a crumb tray at the bottom to catch any surplus crumbs which is easy to operate.

Would I recommend it?

Yes I would if you are looking for a smart basic toaster with adjustable slots. In my view the only minor problem with it is that the power cord is relatively short which is not a problem for me but could be for anyone who needs to locate it some distance from a power socket. Other than that I think it absolutely fine and is a great improvement on my previous very basic toaster.
