PHILIPS AVANCE COL­LEC­TION HD2696

$129, from Tangs and Har­vey Nor­man Cord length: 90cm WHAT’S HOT • It worked well on regular white bread, which was evenly toasted to a nice golden brown on both sides. The coun­try and tra­di­tional white bread were not as evenly toasted, how­ever. • The toaster beeps when your toast is al­most ready so you can en­joy it hot. And all toasted breads were ex­tremely hot right out of the ma­chine. WHAT’S NOT • While most breads emerged crispy on the out­side, they were a bit limp in the mid­dle, which made them more chewy. • The slots here are also a tad nar­rower than the other mod­els, and caused the fluffier tra­di­tional white bread to get stuck sev­eral times. • The heat set­tings are on the knob that’s on the lower side of the toaster, and aren’t as easy to read or ad­just. VER­DICT Best for regular white bread. Its nar­row slots are not able to ac­com­mo­date thicker breads at times.
