Toasting my way to the top:
I have almost settled into my new house – only four boxes left to unpack now. I am still at that weird phase of working out what appliances might work for me. I’m secretly rather enjoying that process of scouring the internet looking for the perfect bin, the ultimate kettle and the toaster that will make breakfast easy. You know – one that means I don’t have to take my toast out halfway through and turn it upside down to get it brown right to the top. Because that just means the toast ends up burnt black because I’ve toasted it twice, can’t work out what timer setting to use and then forgotten to keep watching.
Of course I’m also right in the middle of decorating, so it could just be that I’m empathising a little too much with the guy in this video. Being somewhat vertically challenged at just 5’1” I do find it quite hard to get paint right up to the ceiling. Generally I bring in support in the form of a friend who is over 6’. That doesn’t help with making toast though.
The new Breville toaster looks like the perfect solution if you want to toast your way to the top. It is stylish and gleaming stainless steel so it will co-ordinate perfectly with my white on white kitchen with stainless steel hob and kettle. And, it comes with uniquely deep bread carriages so that it is the perfect fit for Warburton’s Toastie Bread.
There’s a 2 slice model for smaller households like mine. Or, for families a 4 slice version. Both come with a special look and lift facility so you can check how your toast is getting on without cancelling the cycle and both come with something called ‘high lift’ so that if you put something like a muffin in there, you can get it out without burning your fingers!
I love the illuminated control buttons so you can see exactly what setting you’ve picked. Much easier than just a dial if you are in a crowded kitchen. This toaster comes with a removable crumb tray so I’ll have no excuse for not keeping the kitchen clean. And, vital in any London household, the toaster comes with defrost, reheat and mid-cycle cancel options – so you can just grab a muffin or a slice of bread out of the freezer and still get the perfect breakfast toastie.
The 2 slice version is priced at just under £35 while the 4 slice toaster is £59.99.
Ideal for those of us who want to toast our way to the top every time, it will be available from the Breville website and on Amazon after 3rd April
