To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As usual it is entirely looks over function. It toasts completely unevenly, burning the bottom while the top is barely toasted at all, while also toasting one side more than the other. You would think by 2018 humans would have perfected the ability to produce such a basic appliance to the point where they all do their basic job, toasting bread, to a very good standard. Apparently not. And this is after I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find a toaster that would actually toast properly by looking at dozens of toasters and their reviews.
Seemed like a good toaster at the start. Very smart in appearance. Slightly awkward to clean as crumbs, etc get in the crevice between the top and the walls. Biggest problem is the lack of longevity. 18 months old and one side has stopped working properly. Not economically repairable - so off to buy a new one but it won't be a De'Longhi.
This is a replacement for similar which had seen better days. Not at all good for purpose - found setting has to be maximum and still toast needs returning to get ideal browning, and you therefore have to be careful and switch off before burning. Not a patch on my original one and would have returned if i had kept the box and packaging.
I am extremely disappointed with this toaster. It toasts very unevenly. It toast one side more than the other. If one side of the bread is good the other side is either over browned or under cooked. I would not recommended this to any one.
purchased this in November 2015 it broke down only 8 months past its 12 month guarantee. DISGUSTING. If all these products are designed to just out last the specified guarantee I might as well buy a cheap one. This one is not cheap and in future will stay well clear of them.
Much paler colour than expected. Also the features of being able to raise toast for easier access and the feature to control width for different breads are not special features at all, no different from a normal cheap toaster.
Looks good but does not toast at all well. All 4 slots toast in a very uneven way - we have to stand there turning the toast to get a decent slice. It does not toast to the edges well in any slot and two of the slots are much hotter on one side than the other. The elements look basic, now I can see them, and so I'm not surprised it is as poor as it is. Would not recommend.
