Best toaster I've owned,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kenwood TT720 Compact Toaster, 2 Slice (Stainless Steel) (Kitchen & Home)
I've owned the "classic" 4-slice Dulait toaster for the past 10 years which, to be fair, is a heck of a long time and only two elements have gone (but boy are they costly to replace). Well, it was as the second element failed that I began to look around and I saw this one on Amazon and read the excellent reviews. I popped it in my saved basket as I tend to do whilst contemplating a purchase. I was delighted therefore last week to find the price reduced to about the same, or slightly less, than the cost of repairing my Dualit. I ordered it and, as is the case with Amazon, it came really quickly, even on free Supersaver delivery. The old faithful is now safely stored in my loft "just in case"(I can still use the two outside slots as it's only an inner element that's gone) but, as I see it, I have little, if anything,to lose by this experiment.
My new toaster is smaller and much cooler looking than the Dualit. It has self adjusting slots so, at last, I can toast crumpets, bagels etc without having to use the grill. On the subject of bagels, it even has a special setting which toasts the inners more than the outers.
On a busy morning (ie most days)I get on with things whilst the toast is doing. This is why the keep warm function is superb for me as it keeps coming on and off to warm up the toast until you come back into the room and select the "give it up" button!
I love its lights, it's appearance, it's "nearly ready" beep and the warming rack for my croissants. Breakfast is now a luxury experience! Buy one, you won't regret it, especially for £30.
And by the way, the instructions say it can toast just one slice - a very rare feature I find.
