KENWOOD KMIX TTM020 SERIES
$129, available at major electrical and department stores Cord length: 95cm WHAT’S HOT • It toasted white bread better – crisp and lightly browned – than it did the other breads. • This sleek toaster has easy-to-reach knobs. WHAT’S NOT • It was hard to get the right setting to toast the country bread and traditional white bread to perfection. At level three, the country bread was burnt at the sides, while it was pale and just a tad crispy at level two. The top of the traditional white bread was also slightly burnt at a level-two setting, but was pale and slightly crisp at level one. • The setting numbers, printed on the reflective surface of the toaster, are hard to read. VERDICT A stylish-looking toaster I would love in my kitchen; if only it toasted different breads equally well.
