Firstly, my apologies. I am writing about Pacific PT01-2S under Swan as there is no PRODUCT NOT FOUND facility within the toaster department.
Having said that, on with the opinion. Well what can you say about a toaster except that ....it toasts bread, or at least it toasts half the bread as for some reason bread slices are too big for normal bread toasters. Where are the designers I ask myself. Are they too important for such trivia. Why on earth aren't appliances made to fit the product they are cooking these days. We have too small ovens, too small microwave ovens, tiny sinks, etc., etc.,
I selected this particular toaster because of it's price £7 from Asda Stores so perhaps it is a little tawdry of me to complain. The Pacific however replaces a far more expensive model which gave up the ghost, but which also only toasted half rounds of bread.
Now for some details: The Pacific has Cool touch walls, variable browning control (except for the top bits of bread which are pure white on each occasion). A cancel button, cord storage and most importantly a slide out crumb tray which actually works easily and properly and is very easy to clean. Unfortunately however the crumbs still manage somehow to escape all over my sparkling clean worktops whenever it is used. Has anyone else ever wondered how crumbs can travel so far, or is it just my pathetic mind?
The toaster comes with a three page manual..........how on earth can they manage to write a three page manual on a toaster!!!! for heavens sake you just plug it in, insert the toast and wait.....or am I missing something?
This particular toaster only takes two slices of toast at a time and it is impossible to insert teacakes etc., but it is small, neat and easy to store away, unlike the larger versions. As with most electrical models nowadays it is supplied with its own plug
Coming complete with the usual one year's guarantee, this particular little toaster isn't bad value, although it is perhaps just one step on from a long fork over a hot fire (don't know why but that expression sounds rather rude). The long fork did however manage to toast the whole of the slice of bread even though you had to turn it over to do the other side.......over to the designers.
