Positives: nice features such as the option to insert a slice of bread directly from the freezer, select the defrost option, and then toast. It also will keep the toast warm for awhile longer if that’s useful. It is also an attractive unit. Negatives: in both toaster slots, the bread will toast more on one side than the other. Sometimes we reverse the bread slice to even up the toasting, but that technique shouldn’t be required. Since even toasting is really the purpose of most toaster, 3 stars is the most we can give.
Looks great and works great .
After purchasing cheap $20 toaster after cheap toaster and having them conk out or start burning everything within months, i finally decided to splurge and spend the money on a quality toaster. Truth be told, i really just liked the way it looks. But justified the purchase as this being my “forever” toaster. Well, i am really happy to say that i”m 100% pleased with my new toaster. It toasts everything from toast to bagels to english muffins perfectly. It has even has a ‘defrost’ and ‘warmer’ function. Do yourself a favor and put this toaster on your wish list or treat yourself.
I did a lot of research before choosing the smeg toaster. There weren’t many reviews of this model to go on, so i was a little nervous spending so much for something that seemed to have very little market presence in the u. Fortunately, my bet seems to be paying off thus far. Although this toaster is quite expensive, it does a good job toasting a variety of breads. It takes time to get to know how to use it properly, and i’ve found it interesting to go up the learning curve trying to get the best results with various shapes, sizes and types of bread. The main challenge has been setting the browning level so that the bread surface toasts without the edges burning. I’ve had my smoke alarm go off a couple times as i’ve failed at that maneuver, but i’m slowly getting the hang of it. My only quibble about this toaster is that it can be a little hard to get the bread out once it is finished toasting. You’ll need a pair of wooden tongs to go with this model, or the dexterity to turn 2 wooden spoons into a makeshift pair of tongs.
- Nice features such as the option to insert a slice
- Totally worth splurging on this “forever” toaster.
- Happy to report that it does toast beautifully

Toast slots are a little on the small side. Returned for the 4 slice toaster to accommodate larger bread slices.
Love the toaster, but the crumb tray is terrible; in fact, you can see daylight when you look into the slats. Tired of cleaning underneath it after almost every toasting. My cheaper toaster had a much better tray.
I’m obsessed with my toaster. Toasts evenly and is so cute.
Who pays this much for a toaster. I did, because it is so darn cute and i wanted it as a display piece in my kitchen. Happy to report that it does toast beautifully. Nice and crispy outside, evenly browned. I bought it in cream for myself. Just ordered it in black for my daughter for christmas.
Easy to empty crumb tray and adorable.
Very good quality and function.
I didn’t think a toaster could be fantastic until trying a smeg (sounds weird to say). It is probably the best made one on the market and the only one that can brown the surface well without totally dehydrating the interior.
Very sytlish and looks lovely in the kitchen.
Not only does it work well, but it is a beautiful addition to my kitchen.
Doesn’t toast as evenly as i would have liked for such an expensive toaster but overall it is a great product.
It was perfect just what i wanted love it .
