$49.90, from selected hypermarkets, supermarkets and major electrical and department stores Cord length: 1 metre WHAT’S HOT • This basic toaster worked best with country bread. Set at level four, the bread was lightly browned, crispy and slightly crumbly on the outside, and delightfully warm and fluffy in the middle. • The settings knob is also right in front, as is the crumb tray, making them easily accessible. • Like the Electrolux toaster, it comes with a useful dust cover. WHAT’S NOT • Although the white bread and traditional white bread were crispy and toasted to a golden brown, the middle lost a bit of its original fluffiness after toasting. • The 5cm-long bread slots were also a tad short – I had to slice off one end of the country bread to fit it in. • The lift function did not work too well when removing shorter bread slices. VERDICT A fairly capable toaster for a steal!
