Featuring a defrost setting this model lets you defrost frozen bread without toasting it and it has a distinctive matte look. The Russell Hobbs 18046 comes with 2 slots and the variable browning choices lets you create toast exactly how you like it.

A cancel function allows you to stop the cycle mid-way to prevent accidental burning and 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. It has a convenient and practical removable crumb tray; it is incorporated into the toaster and makes maintaining and cleaning the device simple and this two slice toaster is suited for smaller kitchens. This Russell Hobbs 18046 has a black colour.

Illuminated controls highlight functions for straightforward use.
