1/ It was supposed to be easy to clean
on 5 October 2015
The magimix product is ok but there are a few snags which doesn't really add up to the price. Firstly let me tell you what was their unique selling point was to me when I first decided to purchase this product:
1/ It was supposed to be easy to clean.
2 It had clear glass panels so you could see the bread cooking.
2/ It is supposed to cook the bread evenly.
3/ It would look pretty glam on your kitchen counter as a shiny steel accessory.
1/ The clear glass is nice and it helps but it isn't detachable so not easy to clean. In fact you can't easily use a cloth between the glass??
2/ It doesn't cook the bread evenly and not only that it takes forever it's around 2-3 mins I would say compared a cheap high-speed Tefal.
3/ Pretty glam - not-so-glam now, stainless is really hard to keep clean and shiny, so it easily looks like an eye sore if you do not keep it looking nice. I have had to use special stainless polish so it was just another hassle. (I wouldn't berate the product for this) but I was looking for something easy to clean and this didn't really fit the bill now as I can't remove the glass panels. There are no guidance notes either so had to trawl through lots of tips on the net and contact specialist to ensure it remains pristine.
4/ For a 2 slot toaster it takes up a lot of space compared other brands on the market.
In hindsight I would probably not pay £156.00 for this product again unless they made the glass removable so it is easier to clean. For the toasting purposes this doesn't evenly toast so I didn't get value for the extortionate price? I wouldn't pay a £100 for this product so unless they improved the speed and even toasting, removable panels then this might be worth looking at. I would say this is an average product because it's performance is average compared to the other brands out there.
Sorry Magimix - I don't really like berating products but this was a bit of a let down and I just didn't get the feel good factor, it is one of the most expensive toasters on the market and it just doesn't do what was it was designed to do properly for the price?
