Russell Hobbs 21690 high lift

Russell Hobbs 21690 high lift

The 21690 has a reheat function that allows you to lower the slice back into the slots and reheat without re-toasting and the 21690 comes with an excellent three year warranty. In addition, there is a defrost function which automatically lengthens the toasting time.

High-lift function – so you can easily remove your toasted bread. Four slots give you ample space to prepare breakfast and the toaster has variable browning control. You can toast slices of bread and get great results thanks to independent controls.

This appliance can brown four slices at once. Removable crumb trays are easy to clean and keeps messy crumbs at bay and it comes with a mid cycle cancel button.
