Russell Hobbs 19990 Easy Toaster - Black
Russell Hobbs 19990 Easy Toaster - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars The good, the bad, and the ugly..., 21 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First the good: It toasts better than any other toaster I've ever had. Good and even. I think because the slices are in line rather than back-to-back, which is why I bought it, because in back-to-back models the centre side of the slices get more than a fair share of the heat and brown faster. And the side pockets do keep do keep toast warm.
The bad: The first time I have ever said it about the iconic brand of Russell Hobbs but It feels cheap. There are signs of penny pinching on things like the end of the lever having only a top half and the power cable being ridiculously / laughably / ludicrously / preposterously short. And this extends to other items in their range like the kettle my daughter bought.
The ugly: OK, it's subjective but, Shiny black plastic - ugh! Big, bold RH badge - ugh! and I'm not sure about the matt translucent side pockets. Overall - not a pretty site in most kitchens BUT it does the job,
and it does it well and, I hate to say it, but that's what counts the most.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and good, 7 May 2014

This review is from: Damocles (Kindle Edition)
Original, very well thought through and equally well written. Began to feel a bit samey two thirds of the way through and the ending a bit tame as they often are in this genre but I rate it pretty highly.

...it is virtually non streaky and it has removed most of the streaks Fellowes Screen Cleaner left.
Cloth seems a little rough and you don't get a lot of liquid for your money, but it works!

...according to your spoon size.
Bag is resealable but don't use it, transfer to previously used jar.
Decaf is just as good.

...so fast and so small; also plastic y -but that may not matter as it's being used in a TV and probably wont be moved.
It's neat with retractable head and a key ring is included with it.

IT IS TOO GOOD! The approach and the look excites interest. Teaches them things I never knew - in an inspiring way. Bit worried about how the games are going to go from here on in!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only reason not 5 start is because it developed a crack perhaps because the packaging was a bit light? But A5 replaced the faceplate promptly so no complaints there and it's working fine.

Would be helpful if manufacturers / suppliers spelt out the minimum loading as well as the max.

Great container. What I will do when it wears out I don't know. The bits and holder are well made. The magnet is strong. The bits fit snug. I am so impressed I will in future make sure I check the Draper version of anything I want. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little bit sloppy., 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The holder is OK but it doesn't hold bits firmly which means you haven't got fine control when screwing. If they tightened the tolerances it would be good.

This review is from: 9" Magnetic Spirit Level
It's a bit too plastic-y and light weight for my liking. It feels vulnerable. If you are serious pay for something more substantial
