    Toaster with bread sized slots 24th Feb 18 at 4:40 PM
    I'm sure that it's been asked before, but I can't find a relevant thread.

    My toaster has given up. It's not worth fixing, and like most toasters, you couldn't put a full sized slice of bread in it properly. I've decided that my next toaster is to be one that fits a standard sized piece of bread in it (Warburton's Toastie or similar), without having to try to cook it in two halves. I would also prefer a toaster that can take thicker items such as crumpets and teacakes as well.

    So, any ideas please? I don't want to spend silly money. I would prefer to go into a shop to buy, but will buy online if necessary.

    I've seen this one, but there are a few disappointing reviews.

    I bought a toaster from Asda that will toast larger (or proper) sized slices of bread. I think it was either £10 or £12. It wasn't a fancy stainless steel, show-off, bit of kitchen equipment, but it toasts bread very well! This is the one I bought (£11 actually) https://direct.asda.com/george/home-garden/toasters/george-home-2-slice-toaster-with-long-slots/001595893,default,pd.html

    We bought the 2 slice model, its a nice shiny thing with large slots but made very uneven toast. If one side was brown, the other would be hardly cooked.

    Amazon purchase so it was returned.

    We make our own bread and use Dualit. I'm not sure if that is standard or less than, in size terms. But it's a great toaster and is at least 15 years old. Still toasts our bread evenly.

    £11 is ideal - thank you. I don't want anything fancy, I just want a toaster that will toast a full slice of bread without me having to turn it part way through, and end up with a well done stripe across the middle . This is exactly what I'm looking for, thank you.

    Thanks also to the other two posters who commented. Basill - this was a pricey toaster for me (but I do have £25 credit with Amazon at the moment, so it wouldn't have actually cost me too much), but your comments reflect some of the reviews that I read. Thank you.

    Theonlywayisup - Dualit tend to be out of my price range I'm afraid. They have a great reputation, but I can't justify spending so much on a piece of kitchen equipment that is used only a couple of times a week.

    We have one too but they are silly money new.

    Ours was £20 off eBay.

    This begs the question - How big is your bread..?
