The Breville VTT296 is a two slot two slice black toaster with a difference--it’s also a radio. Cleverly combining two kitchen essentials, the Breville Radio Toaster packs both food and entertainment to deliver perfectly cooked toast and your favourite music, news and sports broadcasts. So whether you’re grabbing some breakfast and need to check the weather and traffic updates before heading out for the day or are winding down with a late-night snack and some relaxing tunes--you only need the one handy and compact appliance.
High-quality integrated radio
Enjoy all your favourite radio stations with the fully integrated, high-quality radio. Broadcasting on both FM and AM frequencies, the radio includes an antenna to help improve your reception and a volume control to keep everything at the desired noise level. It can store up to 10 pre-set stations so you can assemble a variety of easy-to-find channels with little effort. It also features an auxiliary input, so you can hook it up to an MP3 Player to access your own personal library of music (a lead is required for this process which is not included).
All-in-one portable appliance helps save space
It can be difficult to find space in the kitchen for all your appliances, especially in small living spaces, making the Breville Radio Toaster a real space saver. Rather than waste valuable room on two appliances, this all-in-one helps give you back more space and it also boasts a compact design, much the same size as a ‘normal’ toaster, so there’s no compromise on size either.
Being so compact, the Radio Toaster is also easily portable so you can take it with you on caravan trips and the like. And while it has a sturdy and solid build, it’s comparatively lightweight, weighing less than 2 kilograms (kg)--less than 1 kg more than ‘normal’ two slice toasters and about 1 kg less than four slice toasters.
Novel and stylishly retro
The Breville Radio Toaster also looks the part. Its black finish, curved top and silver circular speaker combine to give it retro, 1950s feel that is nostalgic and yet still modern. And by combining a radio with a toaster, it has a fun, quirky quality that makes it stand out from other household appliances--great for gadget lovers and those looking for something slightly different in their kitchen.
Sleek and smart toaster
In addition to its radio functions, the VTT296 doesn’t neglect to pack a number of helpful toaster features. It has variable browning control which allows you to choose how dark or light you like your toast and variable width slots allowing breads of various thicknesses to be fully toasted. So whether it's a small slice or something a bit bulkier--all sizes are properly accommodated.
Features include a reheat button which brings cooled toast back up to temperature without burning it; a defrost button which automatically lengthens the toasting time to allow for the defrosting of frozen bread and a mid-cycle cancel button allowing you to stop the toasting process as and when you want to. Remove smaller items without burning your fingers thanks to the extra-high lift which raises the bread carriage for easier access. And keep crumb mess to a minimum with the removable crumb tray which collects any crumbs that may fall from the bread as you toast it. The VTT296 is also fitted with illuminated blue buttons for easy use, cord storage and a non-slip base.
