    My new Russell Hobbs 4-slice stainless steel one isn't too bad for big bread, but I expect you could do better. The more expensive the better, I would have thought. I've recently had a Frigidaire 2-slice one (went back to Robert Dyas after burning everything) and a Morphy Richards 2-slice one and they aren't any good for big bread at all.

    We've got a 4 slice Dualit (the older type ones, coloured enamel and chrome, not the newer all one colour ones) and I've never had any bread that didn't fit in it.. even slices of home made bread (and I'm no good at cutting those thin) will fit.

    It's not a very moneysaving product though, being expensive, but it looks fab and hopefully will last.

    Next feature them in their catalogue now, might be an easier way to get one than initial outlay (it was the only way I could afford one) - again not a very moneysaving ethic though I'm afraid.

    If you couldn't find it cheaper elsewhere, and especially if it does outlast the previous cheaper ones, then it is fully compliant with MSE principles.

    I wish to re-open this thread and amaze people to the fact that . . . . even today i.e. after 3yrs of opening this thread I am still searching for a 2-slice Toaster that will fit large slices of bread (not thick slices) !! .

    Can someone suggest me a low-priced yet good quality 2-slice toaster that can take Warbutons Toastie that comes in their larger pack version?

    Thanks,
    Vish.

    If ever you do find one - let us know! I tend to cut the slices in half if they're too "tall" and sometimes won't fit sideways anyway. Problem then is the need to turn everything off and use a knife to extract them when they're ready!

    Especially since they call their bread Warbutons Toastie, you would think it would fit into a toaster unless people still do their toast under the grill?

    Hi Try a Waring toaster. Argos do them. I paid 50 quid for mine ( 4 slice) the other week so they're not cheap but it has a 3 year guarantee and is a bit of a beast! You may be able to get one cheaper on the internet. Got fed up of toasters that either took ages to brown or only toasted one side of bread. This one great.

    I suppose they suggest an expensive one, but is still a good idea to check if they can suggest any cheap one.

    I found my local ASDA is doing their own branded large 2-slice white toaster for 9 (in offer at the moment)!! But not sure how good they are. They also come in silver and black for an extra quid.

    I am after a stainless steel one though, that co-ordinates with my kitchen.

    I finally bought Rusell Hobbs Stylis Toaster from ASDA which is currently on sale for 12!! They had three colours which included Stainless Steel. I still haven't tested but the reviews on Amazon suggest it can handle large slices. Will wait and see when I buy large bread. If it goes wrong, I have 28 days to return

    Tefal used to do a thick n thin toaster years ago - I had one when I was at uni - don't know if they still make it.

    The jaws used to close to the size of the bread.
