Following the demise of our last toaster (less than 3 years old) we finally selected on the breville as good value for money. The appearance and finish are very good and it allows for toasting 2 or 4 slices. The wide slots for toasting buns, etc. Is an excellent feature but can result in a slightly longer toasting time for thin slices of bread.
I give this a 5 star rating because it is simply a toaster which does what its supposed to do. I bought it to replace my dualit 4 slice toaster which was very pretty and very expensive and performed quite well but whilst the toasting elements can easily be replaced they are expensive and do not last long. So for a 5th of the price of a new dualit i bought this breville 4 slice. It has so far performed extremely well, you can easily operate it to cook 1,2,3, or four slices of toast to your exact preference. It looks good and , well, it is a toaster, i like it, i like the toast it makes, i recommend it.
Haven’t had this long but it seems to work perfectly – hopefully it will last, my last two slicer seemed to go on for ever. This looks nice & works very well with the breville kettle.
A very good product although the eject mechanism is a little on the weak side. Toaster is easy to use and keep clean.
Can toast crumpets, breadcakes, garlic bread etc because of the wide slots. Although its big & chunky it still does tge job nicely.
I spent a little more than i would normally with this toaster but its worth it. Its so annoying to have to turn the bread over to toast the bit that was missed coz it doesnt fit in the toaster. But this is a very good size and excellant quality. Not recommended for anybody with limited worktop space as it is quite bulky.
Our old toaster (2 slice) stopped working, and we bought this one as it had the ability to toast 4 slices, thus making things easier when guests stay with us. Initially, we found that it did not toast well – just warmed the bread, but once we got used to the settings, it has proved excellent. Good for french bread toasted thick, homemade wholemeal bread cut thick or thin, crumpets, tea cakes – anything really. Easy to empty the crumbs as well.
Low settings required as it heats up fast and you risk burnt toast. Efficient and good value for money.
As another reviewer said a toaster is a toaster. Is the toast evenly done all over – not quite. Nb: should add here that it will not toast the largest (longest) slices of bread which stick out the top. Have i tried to find the perfect toaster – yes. So i would comment that this one is as good as anything out there, and it does do 4 slices in one go and is very easily adjusted. So i give it the thumbs up – just.5 stars is too generous imo.
This is a good toaster,ideal for a family,do not know what else to write,as the description says four slice toaster.
