Toasting Your Success!

We get called out to deal with a lot of household emergencies and repairs. Bringing something back to life within the house can be appealing and it’s amazing what households might otherwise waste. But there are some items that are more difficult to deal with.

The good old kitchen toaster is an excellent example of this. Most people probably buy a toaster for a relatively small sum, which means that they are rarely cost-effective to repair, in our experience. How would you go about buying a new one?

That’s a good question, given the sheer selection of them that are currently to be found. When you look at the leading brand names, you might already have your own thoughts on Russell Hobbs, Sage, Kenwood, Breville, Delonghi and the rest, but how much do you really know about their toasters? Perhaps more importantly, which of the particular models that are available will be right for the needs of your family.

Reading through the Number 67 reviews and toaster buying guide on this very subject, it appears that the starting point is essentially usually to consider the size of the appliance that you are looking to buy. There are some complications around this particular issue, but it does mainly come down to a straight choice: will a 2-slice toaster do the job, or will you need something with a larger capacity?

Once you have answered that question, you are on your way and you can start to think about refining your selection. You may, for example, decide that you need a toaster with wider or longer slots than is standard. You’ll even find models that are designed for a particular brand of bread, with one leading manufacturer currently advertising an appliance that is, so they say, absolutely perfect for Warburtons bread!

Is bigger always better in the world of toasters? To a certain extent, the answer to this question is going to depend upon your family and the circumstances within your own home. In general terms, it can be said that 4-slice toasters are usually more expensive than their smaller counterparts and also tend to take up a bit more space. If you’re intent on opting for a larger toaster, then this means that you are likely to need a little bit more money, as well as plenty of space within your kitchen.

What about the question functionality? This has become more complex in recent years, chiefly because technological innovation means that the range of functions that are available has undoubtedly increased. Indeed, functions that were previously seen as being relatively advanced are now increasingly cropping up on the most basic toaster models on the market.

It might well be expected that you’ll be able to choose the temperature at which your bread is to be toasted: that is, surely, the very definition of a basic function. But what about having the option to check how the toasting is progressing, without having to interrupt the process and re-start?

That latter option may sound like an appealing option. It definitely does to me because I too often fall into the trap of popping the toast in, feeling that it’s underdone, then putting it in again. Except, I sometimes forget that I’ve done so, leading to burnt toast. Aargh! The option to take a peek at an earlier stage would safe me some strife and is certainly no longer an “advanced” feature: even the most basic toasters now may have this in place.

So I’d conclude by saying that a toaster is not an appliance that is generally easy, cost-effective or worthwhile to repair. In most cases, you’re better off to simply buy a replacement model. Before doing so, think carefully about your requirements and take a look at online reviews to give yourself an idea of what you are getting.
