Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ben1977 Stylish and functional, but quality control leaves something to be desired
I purchased this toaster on offer, representing good value for money compared with the usual retail price. It is a replacement for a much older four-slot model; this two-slot version takes up less worktop space and features much wider slots enabling larger items to be toasted, and toasted sandwiches can be made using the cage available separately.
The disappointing thing was the quality control on this product. I had to order the item four times before I received one I was happy to keep. The first one had two scratches on the stainless steel panel; the second had a noticeable defect in the paintwork on one of the end panels and the third had the same issue but was even worse. This is a hand-built product from a well regarded manufacturer: it is a pity that their quality control is not of a higher standard as, in my opinion, the first three toasters I received should have been sold as factory seconds.
Having finally obtained a replacement model which I am happy to keep, I would rate this toaster very highly in terms of style and functionality.
