Russell Hobbs Toaster Review

 

Really awful toaster. One side toasts more than the other so it's better to toast for half the time, pop it, turn the bread over and toast it again. You can't put the second set of bread slices in at a different time to the first because when the left...

Awful

 

Sometimes works, sometimes burns at 1, sometimes doesn't toast at 4. Completely random. I've been using toasters for 50 years and I've never had this problem. How is that that they could make toasters 50 years ago, and now they can't? Russell Hobbs...

Absolutely worst toaster I've ever bought!

 

Slow and only toasts one side. Won't pop up and cooking light stays on even though it has stopped toasting. We end up with cold toast as we think it's still cooking. Been like this since day 1. Terrible toaster I will never buy this type of toaster...

Overheats

 

We bought this toaster in August, average use is two slices per day. Even on 2 or 3 the whole machine is TOO HOT. Our smoke alarm has been set off. There doesn't seem to be any variation in temperature when the dial is moved from 1 to 6! It is always...

Either barely browns the toast or scorches it.

 

Can't wait to buy another toaster. I've owned $20 kmart toasters better than this one. No bread seems to fit in it properly, so the top of the slice isn't cooked at all. Meanwhile, the part of the bread in the toaster is burnt to a crisp. It burnt one...

Very disappointed

 

Standard size bread is too big for it so the tops of slice never toast. The outside of the toaster gets VERY hot so keep away from kids. After 3 weeks of use we still can't get it to toast evenly without burning. Don't waste your money. We are going...

Extremely Happy

 

Have been using the classic 2 slice toaster. Never fails to slowly toast each side evenly. Over time they get grubby so I replace with same model. Recently had problem locating my favourite model and purchased the 'super fast 'model with the hi...

Absolutely useless!!

 

What a piece of junk!! We had a stainless steel one of another brand which was great. After a new kitchen we decided to colour code appliances and bought the cream kettle and toaster. BIG mistake!! This is my worst purchase of my entire life and you...

Consumer review by: Maggie (productreview.com.au)

Disappointing

 

This toaster is too deep, and you either burn your fingers getting the toast out, or burn your hands upending the thing to tip the toast out. Muffins get completely lost, and burn around the edges. It gets very hot, but doesn't toast evenly and is VERY...
