This is another item we were given by my Other Half's dad. Our old toaster was a naff old white thing that we got from Woolworth before it shut down and was in their value range and made terrible toast so I was pleased as punch that we were given this stylish posh Russell Hobbs toaster.

What It Looks Like

The toaster looks very smart, it has a stainless steel outside which is brushed to a satin finish. This looks really nice and makes it easier to keep clean. The toaster has two handle on it, they are black, one of them is static and is just there to help you lift up the appliance, the other one is the moveable one which you push down to use the toaster. There are are two buttons underneath this moveable handle, one is for defrosting bread and one is for cancelling the cooking. In between these buttons is a red light which shows you when the frozen bread button is on. Then there is a dial with numerals around it which you use to adjust the browning time.

How It Works

The toaster is pretty easy to use. You can either toast one thing or two things at a time. You need to make sure the toaster is plugged into the electric and the power is on before you press down the handle or else it will just come up again and won't “stick” down. If you are trying to toast frozen bread then you just leave the dial at whatever you normally like your toast done on and then you press the frozen bread button with a snowflake icon above it and it will cook the bread to the right time to get it how you like it. This is really good if you are like our family, we usually have a few slices left over in a loaf that are a bit too stale to make a decent sandwich so we put them in the freezer and they are perfect for a slice of toast, saves using the soft new bread.


If you are cooking something and its on the wrong setting (sometimes happens in our house if I have changed the dial as I like my toast well done but Other Half likes his barely looked at) and you can smell it cooking too long you just press the cancel button and the toast will pop up instantly.

Cooking Crumpets Or Other Things

If you want to cook something like crumpets you can use the toaster for this. You just put them in like you would a piece of bread and then when they “pop” up, if you can't reach them being smaller than a slice of toast you can lift up the moveable handle a bit more and it will come up so that the crumpets are sticking out at the top. You just need to make sure that you don't touch the outside of the toaster around the holes as it will be really hot.

Cleaning

The toaster has a crumb tray built in so you will have to empty this frequently. It does save getting lots of crumbs on the work surface though. The most obvious thing about cleaning is being electrical you mustn't put it in the sink to wash it. You should unplug it from the electric and then give it a wipe down with a damp cloth and then dry it after making sure you don't get any water inside the openings onto the elements.


You can currently buy one of these toasters in Currys for £29.99 or from Amazon even cheaper for £24.99. I would recommend this product and think its a nice addition to our kitchen.
