This review is from: Russell Hobbs 13766 2 Slice Classic Toaster - Polished Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)
What has happened to Russell Hobbs? This was a once dependable brand but in the space of three years I've had two new kettles spring a leak [am on the third] and one toaster - this one - blow up at a little over a year old. All the appliances were nicely designed and looked good but build quality and internal components weren't up to the job. This company badly needs to reconsider. It costs money and consumes resources to design and manufacture electrical goods but they only last as long as their weakest component. A total waste of man hours, metal, plastic, fuel and the cardboard used to make the box if such products don't make it to their 2nd birthday - in a couple of cases failing before a year was out.
