4.0 out of 5 stars Good toaster, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Russell Hobbs 18117 4 Slice Deluxe Toaster Modern Classic Design (Kitchen & Home)
I had been using a Dualit 2-slice toaster but decided I needed a 4-slice toaster and chose the Russell Hobbs. It is big though not as big as some of the reviews had led me to expect. It is about 12 inches wide and deep and 7.5 inches high. For its size it is very lightweight. When it arrived I could not believe it was a toaster because even in the packaging it was considerably lighter than my 2-slice Dualit. The lead is exactly two feet in length, which is fine for me but might inconvenience some. It gets very warm, but not hot, during use but cools very quickly after use.

The toaster has all the features one expects of a modern toaster and accommodates anything up to an inch wide, but it will not manage a large slice of bread because the top of the bread will not toast. The Russell Hobbs takes much longer to toast a slice of bread than does my Dualit but the toast is crisper. It usually browns both sides evenly but I find that with any toaster a slice of bread can sometimes lean towards one side and toast unevenly.

A good toaster and at the current price very good value.
