Russell Hobbs has been a leading brand in the small appliances and has crossed over 5 decades successfully. Celebrating the 50th anniversary is with the proud introduction of the K2 kettle. It has also successfully launched the easy fill steam irons. One of its model that belongs to the designer collection is Russell Hobbs 18513 Heritage Floral 2 Slice Toaster and it is been reviewed here.
This model comes with the striking designer finish with the floral design in the glossy white colour housing. It comes to add sparkles in the kitchen space. The size is compact which can be accommodated on the kitchen table top and can be stored in the cupboards when not in use. The size and the weight are compact which can be handled easily.
Russell Hobbs 18513 Heritage Floral Compact Toaster offers functions that are competitive. Like most other model it gives the toasting function and the highlight here is the possibility of toasting the frozen bread. In this case when the programme for the frozen bread is been selected it will automatically calculate the toasting time as at first it defrosts the bread before going in for the toasting programme.
The re-heat function is also available and in this case it is not required for the bread to go thought the full toasting process. The reheating means functioning with the low heat settings and it refreshes the toasted bread as freshly toasted one. Caution to be applied here as only the plain bread is eligible for this function.
The controls are present in the side of the toaster with few buttons for selecting the programme and the rotary knob for setting the temperature and the browning control. This model gives the option for selecting the programme. It also allows the mid cycle cancels option and setting the programme is simple with the access of the relative button. However it is not possible to pause the programme if required.
- This model works with the 2-slice toaster and can accommodate the bread of any size. The bread slots are long and wide which can be adjusted based on the type of the bread.
- It is possible to select the browning control and hence the toast can be matched with the preference of each person.
- It comes with the crumb tray which is removable for cleaning and can be easily sided out. It is advisable to clean the crumb tray after every toast in order to avoid catching of fire.
- It is also possible to set the toaster for the bagel function and hence it can be used for the multi purpose.
- The high lift is possible as after the completion of the programmed with the help of the knob present in the side the bread can be lifted high to get it easily removed without hurting the fingers.
Over all, Russell Hobbs 18513 Heritage Floral White Colour Toaster is impressive and it does come with the cool touch body, cord storage and the non-slip feet to make it more special for the domestic use.
