Product Description

Keep warm side pockets
The Easy Toaster features two keep warm side pockets. view larger

Russell Hobbs design household items with real people in mind, so when they created the Easy Toaster they considered everything a toast lover could want. The space-saving design means you can have the benefit of a four-slice toaster but in the sleek format of a two-slice toaster, and when combined with the hot pockets toast keeps warmer for longer.

Space-saving keep warm pockets

Having pockets on the side means you can enjoy four slices of warm toast from a two-slice toaster – just toast your first two slices and pop them in the warming pockets while the next lot are toasting. The keep warm draws actually keep toast 30 per cent warmer compared to leaving your toast on a plate, which makes the toaster great if you haven't much room or only need to toast four slices occasionally.

Detachable side pockets
The pockets are removable for easy cleaning. view larger
Frozen bread and cancel functions

With the frozen bread function you can toast bread straight from the freezer. You don't even have to adjust the browning control away from your favoured setting: when selecting the option, toasting time will be altered automatically to give the same degree of browning you get with unfrozen bread. The cancel function allows you to cancel toasting mid cycle.

Adjustable browning control

This allows you to select the level of browning you prefer, assuring your toast is always cooked to your desired consistency.

High lift

The high lift feature allows you to bring the lever up so that your toast pops out high enough for you to take it out easily.

Sleek and stylish

The Easy Toaster is as stylish as it is functional. It has a lovely curved design, and contemporary matte black casing. Its flat back means it can stand flush against the wall so it's space saving and looks tidy too.

Easy to clean

By their very nature, toasters can be tricky gadgets to clean. That's why the Easy Toaster has removable pockets and a removable crumb tray, so you can get rid of breadcrumbs and grease with ease.

This is a very smart toaster which would look at home in most kitchens. Very slim so doesn't take up much space on the work top. Handy warming area on side which is great if your toast has gone cold. Good item for the modern kitchen

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.

This is a great toaster in the respect of it has a single slot that you can easily fit 2 normal slices of bread into or if you have artisan (fancy) bread and it's wider than most then you will easily be able to toast one slice at a time. The pockets for keeping toast warm are a great idea. There are 4 of us in our family and it means that we can all sit down to warm toast at the same time.
Nice simple controls where you can thaw frozen bread and a dial you can change how toasted you want your toast. Nice blue light in the handle also so all looks good and works good.
My one gripe (and it's a fairly big one) is that the plastics they have used to make the body of the toaster are not great and never look really clean. They are clean it's just not a polished surface and will scratch easily.
If you don't mind that much how it looks and are not a clean freak then this is a great toaster for you. If you are a wee bit fussy and I admit that I am then look somewhere else.

All seemed well with this toaster at first, but then, a few weeks into use it nearly caused a fire as all the elements on one side stopped heating up and the ones on the other seriously over heated. Thank fully I was nearby and so a serious incident was avoided. I did test it our several more time under careful conditions but it really was kaput and so I had to send it back.

A decade or so ago no one cared what a kitchen appliance looked like, it was there to do a job and design was secondary. In this day and age though look and feel is more important but trading those looks for functionality is a tightrope we have to walk.

Luckily, this toaster manages to strike the perfect balance.

The toaster is extremely slim and takes up a lot less room than you would expect and it has the simple design of one side being completely flat so it sits snugly against the kitchen wall.

Like every toaster i've ever come across, it's still impossible to empty the crumb tray without a few crumbs going everywhere but after a dozen toasters in my lifetime which have all had the same failing i've given up on that design fault ever being solved!

One thing it does win brownie points on is with the warming pockets on the side so you can keep 2 slices warm while another two toast and the 'toast from frozen' option also works pretty well at the simple press of a button.

All in all, it's very well made and everything about it just screams 'quality' and i'm happy with it sitting in my kitchen

This toaster does what it says it will do -- it toasts bread, keeps two (normal-sized) slices of toast warm while you make more, and it's easy to clean. The browning control is good. The pop-up mechanism is not very strong and for most slices I find I have to lift the toast manually. The slot is average in width and copes well enough with smaller crumpets and medium-thick slices, but not with anything really thick.

The shape of this toaster is unusual - on the plus side, it's great for toasting unusually shaped bread as it has one long, undivided slot instead of two. You can fit in three small slices at once, or one long slice (for example, from a large round country-style loaf). On the minus side, it size and shape, and the need to have the keep-warm pockets accessible, will mean that it won't fit easily in a lot of kitchens. It would be ideal on a kitchen island or breakfast bar. It doesn't work that well on a worktop under cabinets.

The keep-warm pockets are fine provided you only want to keep warm fairly thin slices from a standard loaf, and on the whole I think if you use that feature often, you would probably be better off with a four-slice toaster. And be warned, it's a plastic body, so if like me you have toast tongs with a magnet to keep them on the toaster, that won't work here.

The Russell Hobbs 19990 out of the box is a picture of elegance and beauty. Slimline as depicted in the picture, it has a flat back design to fit against kitchen walls, so space saving .It is a 2 slice toaster and I think the best innovative feature is the two 'keep warm pockets' in front of the toaster, to keep warm your toast while you toast more bread or get the rest of your breakfast ready.The crumb tray and the rest the toaster are easy to open and clean.

A taost is a enjoyable staple for most of us as many kitchens can boast a toaster. However there are toasters and toasters, depending on preference, usuage and style. This is Russell Hobbs 19990 is not only stylish but energy efficient. Russell hobbs is a trusted name in kitchen appliances and the quality of this toaster is assured. Add to that the slimline elegance, the innovate warm pockets and 30% savings on energy and we have a brilliant winner. I recommend.
