Russell Hobbs Darwin 2-Slice Toaster 23861 – – Solid basic toaster!

A bit in the small side for slices.

I ordered it in the evening and it arrived the next day in the morning. Great toaster, looks very good and works just fine. Cheap and not bad quality at all.

User likes this as easy to use and makes good toast.

Only really fits small pieces of bread in. I am finding an average cut loaf of to long to fit in.

The seller promptly arranged a refund after the toaster was delivered and didn’t work. I’ve previously owned a russell hobbs toaster and is did the job well.

Does exactly what i want it to do.

Thought it would be a metallic red?. So wasn’t to happy didn’t match my other red stuff in my kitchen. The colour doesn’t look the photo.

I wanted a white toaster to match my kitchen this one is good, functional and easy to use. And it can fit a wider size of bread. I’d definitely recommend it.

Only used it a few times but it browns toast great.

It’s infuriating that someone can’t design a toaster that can be easily cleaned. Crumbs naturally get trapped between the place to put bread and the outside. I’ve tried small brushed, tea clothes, skewers. Basically, we just have to live with old crumbs. The little tray at the base where some collect is not good enough either. But, it toast slices of bread.

Loved the colour of this toaster. Only thing i would say is a normal slice of bread too long and thus a fifth of it doesn’t toast.

Good little toaster for the price.

Nice little toaster looks great and everything works. Could be slightly longer for bread to fit better. Here are the specifications for the Russell Hobbs Darwin 2-Slice Toaster 23861 –:

  • Gloss finish
  • Two slice
  • Frozen bread, cancel, reheat function
  • Drop down crumb tray
  • Cord storage

Performance it moderately good.

Suitable for bread and crumpets and bagels ,unlike our old one which was an unsafe piece of trash that couldn’t get full size toast in never mind crumpets.

Brought for its small size to go on a narrowboat, its fantastic.

Came as advertised and works well so far.

Easy to use, it’s a toaster. It’s small so it does not demand to much space on the kitchen. Just dont buy big slices of bread, it won’t fit.

Liked the product for it’s compact and tidy finish. Disliked the bland red and not the nice red it appears in the pictures. Also, contrary to other review, it does not have a bagel setting so be aware.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Solid basic toaster!

  • Good toaster

  • Pretty good

This is actually a present so can’t really comment further, sure it will be gratefully received.

Great toaster and looks lovely – very discreet but does the job.

Once you have it on the setting you like. . Don’t change it toasts the bread well. The crumb tray is easy to access and just flips open due to gravity, so making it easy to emptynice product. Ps cord could be longer in my opinion but thats not really a flaw, just my preference.

We got this toaster in cream as it was the cheapest toaster with the best ratings. It’s pretty basic with few features (a heat dial, a toast button, a bagel button). It heats up quickly though and does the job well. Even the cream colour is actually lighter than portrayed in the kitchen, so doesn’t look out of place in our white and black kitchen.

Cheap and plasticky but does the job.

Compact toaster perfect for my kitchen. Sits perfectly on my worktop.

Very happy with this purchase of our office toaster – takes two slices of bread. Has a crumb tray to empty – is nice and small so doesn’t take up loads of room in our little office kitchen.

The cooking time seems to change even though the dial hasn’t been moved. But we love the colour and persevere as am not in the position to buy another.

Very good and it looks great in the kitchen, nice bright red.

Purchased this for my brother, he loves it, easy to use and turned up very quickly, thank you.

The toaster looks pretty nice, working so far 🙂 what i don’t like is that you can’t just remove the bread crumb compartiment to empty it, you need a screwdriver.

Nice colour but poor quality.

Decent enough toaster does the job well built.

Absolutely without problems.

Like almost any new electrical appliances, make sure you unplug this toaster when not in use. The power went off in my house because the toaster was plugged in overnight. Except for that, it’s a pretty decent toaster for the price. It’s very lightweight and compact and there’s a lot of settings to choose from.

Item delivered very quickly, over christmas period, very pleased with toaster.

Had i known it didn’t fit a normal slice of bread i probably would not have bought it. A slice of bread is too tall or long to fit in, so i end of having to flip it round. Other than that, the toaster does work well and was a good price.

It was for my 92 yr old aunt whose not used a toaster before.

Great little toaster – does the job and makes great toast.

A good looking, easy to use, compact toaster. I haven’t had it long enough to judge its durability.

Excellent and good looking toanster.

The toaster is pretty good and a nice egg-shell color that doesn’t stand out too much. (i don’t want to see the toaster as i walk in the kitchen. ) i’ve had it for a couple of months now however, and the bottom flap used to clean out crumbs no longer wants to stay closed. I find i have to work with it a bit, which is too bad. It toasts fine, and i can easily fit crumpets in, which was important to me.

It’s good is all i can really say, not much to expect from a basic 2 slot toaster.
