Slow, and dangerous, 23 Mar 2013
Having seen the shiny new toaster we were very pleased.
However beware that the wattage is quite low on this toaster.
It toasts so slowly that you will miss the bus!
More seriously, the bread tends to dry out a lot before the toasting is complete.
After a month of regular use, one side refused to stay down during toasting. Then blue sparks appeared in the mechanism. Then embers appeared and it started smouldering. Given the toaster is an item we use everyday over year, and they can last 10 years, it's probably worth spending a bit more to have something that won't be a fire hazard.
Amazon kindly processed the refund on the day of return. Thank you amazon.
