Breville VTT853 Lustra 4-Slice Toaster : Good toaster

Looks lovely, toasts well (great that you can check how it’s doing by sliding it up mid-toast) and is easy to use.

I like this product, but after less than a year of use one of the sides does not heat up at all, making that side useless right after the warranty for this has finished.

We bought this with the matching kettle. Very happy with the product. The colour is lighter than it looks on the pictures. I have added a photo in the hope it reflects that it is a lot more pearly white than the pearly grey in the pics but either way it’s very pretty. Looks really smart and the buttons and levers are all very sturdy feeling. Can’t believe the price we paid for both was so reasonable and these don’t feel like cheap products at all.

Fits the decor of my kitchen well.

Great all round toaster, good functions on it my wife loves it cos it matches our kettle.

It works great and it’s very pretty.

Works well and looks good – my daughter likes it so much she bought one for her new house and the kettle to match.

Breville Lustra 4-Slice Toaster, Storm Grey

Subtly Stylish Meets Highly Functional

Add a dash of everyday elegance to your kitchen with the Breville Lustra 4-Slice Toaster. The toaster features sleek lines that pair with a pearlescent storm grey finish and chrome accents. Handling the basics with ease, the toaster has high-lift levers, variable browning control and lift & look technology so you can toast any sized treat to perfection. Each Breville toaster also has both defrost and reheat settings plus a cancel button. It’s the perfect blend of performance and panache.

High Lift Levers with Lift & Look Technology

Clever high-lift levers make it easy to both take a sneak peek mid cycle and toast bread tall and small without burning your fingers. Add on variable-width bread slots and this toaster can handle tiny crumpets, burly bagels and beyond.

Custom Browning Settings

Variable browning settings make it easy to toast a consistently perfect slice that’s just to your liking. There’s also both defrost and reheat settings plus a cancel button to stop mid cycle. Illuminated controls add an extra touch of class. And each side can be set independently.

Removable Crumb Tray

The easy-slide tray makes it effortless to keep the toaster clean while non-slip feet ensure it stays precisely where you want it for less mess. Internal cord storage helps keep your worktop tidy.

Buy on Amazon

This toaster was ordered because we had previously owned a breville which was great. The first toaster that was delivered was coloured cream when it should have been grey even though it said grey on the box. This was returned and the second toaster did not work properly. The third toaster works fine but the controls feel a bit flimsy and sharp in comparison to our last breville toaster. But for £30 you cannot really complain. Throughout all of the issues of returning the products, amazon have been great and super efficient. It’s just a pity they have been let down by breville.

It’s toasts my bread as expected, it’s a toaster so not much more i would expect from it. If you turn it up to high it will burn your toast, if you don’t have it turned up it won’t burn your toast.

Easy to use, colour matches kitchen, breville excellent make.

Really happy with the cost and appearance of this toaster and have tried it so far with bread, crumpets and hot cross buns – all perfectly toasted. Note that you can only use the right two slots on their own or all four. You can’t use the left two without the right two.

I liked it because of the many toast browning settings it has. Easy to clean and quick with toast to pop up.

Beutiful and great deal with the extended warranty.

Excellent toaster accurate controls and stylish.

This toaster toasts and love the feature you can lift the toast up to see if it has cooked then put it back down again to continue on its original toasting time.

Cooks toast very nicely and looks quality product too.

Stylish, practical toaster with easy to use feature that toasts well.

Lovely looking toaster – wished it had automatic browning settings as tends to burn until i get used to the settings. Large slots so ideal for toasting bagels. Have the matching kettle and looks very attractive in my kitchen.

Hard to find bread to fit in it, blows household electrics on a regular basis, going back.

Easy to use and looks good, at reduced price very good value.

Yes with larger slices of bread you need to turn it, very pleased with it and would recommend.

Great toaster looks more expensive.

Great toaster, easy to clean and toasts reasonably even, it’s not hard to pop it up and flip them if it doesent.

Great value for money & looks fab in my new kitchenlooks more like a very light pink rather than cream but lovely colour nonetheless & wipe clean.

It doesn’t toast as fast as my previous morphy richards toaster but looks pretty.

It does what it says on the tin.

Very good and stylish product mark d it down as the left hand controller the defrost selector doesn’t work.

Quick look facility without restarting timer brilliant. Best toaster i’ve ever owned in over 50 years.

Ok but have to adjust browning dial for different thickness of the bread each time easier if it was self adjusting.

Bought this to go with the kettle. Ran it without bread in for the first few times until the ‘new’ smell disappeared.

Very stylish but unable to toast my usual sliced thick bread horizontally as i did with previous model of same make and found the guarantee is limited to only one year.

It’s a bit big in size, so make sure you have the space, but looks good in the kitchen and great quality.

Good qaulity at a great price, simple to use the features love that you can lift the toast to view progress without cancelling, looks great and like the way the buttons light up when in use.
