Breville VTT742 review

Breville Stainless Steel 4 Slice Toaster - Brushed VTT742 Outline

It features a cancel function to cancel the toasting process at any time and it is made of stainless steel. Additionally, there is a variable width slots - for thicker slices of bread and there is cord storage to keep your worktop neat and tidy.

By offering variable browning control, the VTT742 ensures you get the perfect toast every time, cooked just to your liking and it boasts a defrost function that allows you to toast bread directly from frozen. There is a reheat option that will warm any slices that have gone cold, without browning them further and the 4 slices toaster comes with a removable crumb tray, so it’s really easy to clean afterwards. The Four-slice toaster is good for families or busy households.

Russell Hobbs 18951 2 Slice Toaster in Red

It has a high lift function, which makes it easy to remove smaller items like muffins and crumpets and this toaster comes with a defrost feature that comes in really handy when you forget to take your bread out of the freezer.

The 18951 toaster has wide slots that help toast different sizes and shapes of bread and it has a cancel function. The 18951 comes with a removable crumb tray to keep your kitchen surfaces clean and tidy.

The Russell Hobbs 18951 is made of stainless steel. There is easy cord storage so that your kitchen worktop stays neat and tidy and the 18951 has long slots.

It also has a re-heat function allowing you to re-heat toast without charring it further for those times you might not be able to get to your toast straight away and if you prefer it lightly toasted, the variable browning control can help you achieve the perfect colour, every time. It can toast up to two slices of bread at a time.
