Slower than a wet week.
Stainless steel Toaster looks great but don't expect toast in a hurry. We have had the toaster for just over one year now and it was always slow but it has got slower and slower to the point now that to toast 2 pieces of bread i put the dial on maximum time and have to press it down for extra time again. I usually toast thin sliced whole meal bread.

Way too slow!
Seriously slow. The elements don’t even look hot. Waste of money and I wish I had of read these reviews as I wouldn’t have purchased it. A $10 Kmart toaster is better than this

Absolutely hopeless unless you are prepared to put your bread down in it before you go to bed to be sure its toasted in the morning. It would be praising it to call it a bread warmer, let alone a bread toaster.
Looks beautiful however for price too slow..regret buying it.
Seriously a kmart toaster is more efficient..Too slow for everything and flings thin toast out onto floor..Do not recommend.looks pretty but for price not good at all.Too expensive and slow.

Toast burns one side of the bread and is uneven on the other side. Of the bread. Wanted matching kettle and toaster so brought the set and so disappointed by the toaster

Lasted 6 years!
Love this toaster so much am trying to find a replacement after just over 6 years of constant use. Takes regular size bread (13.5/14cm) horizontally. Good for bagels and crumpets,plus use toastie bags in it. Browns evenly. Like the warming function when re heating toast. Only one downside, numbers on dial for browning rubbed off quite quickly( maybe too vigorous cleaning on my part!). However, this is probably one of the best toasters I’ve owned( previously Dualit- which I have to say grossly overpriced for what it can do). Will carry on my search to replace as this model is no longer produced!
Very poor quality
Purchased this with Flybuys points in March 2020. Looks good but doesn't work correctly. Bread is toasted very unevenly. When cycle finishes the toast is often ejected on to the floor. Very bad purchase decision. Don't touch this brand.

purchased against my usual logical and practical standards as i wanted a cool looking kettle and toaster set just for a change.
Well...... the toaster, the re heat function is useless as it stays down for about 5 seconds and does not even warm the toast, the defrost function just turns frozen bread to toast.... regardless of the heat setting you get toast.
When the toast pops up it jams almost every time! have only had this for 3 days and its a pile of junk!
The cheaper breville 4 slice i have had like 5 yers and will return to just works. i...t also has lift and look function while toasting, the reheat/toast some more button works perfect. no jams. should have known better to stick with a brand i have had work perfect for years in most of my appliances of the same brand. The kettle seems to work fine but as the jug is singe skin it gets HOT to touch. time will tell if it fails based on the poor quality of the toaster but for now it works and looks cool.

Very poor value for money.
Very poor value for money. One side ceased working on the second attempt to use it. Mind you, it looks good! but it doesn't actually toast. The elements don't appear to be high enough wattage.
Purchased in March 2019 at A A Furnishers.
hardly used it - maybe once every 3-4 months. power failure right after 2 years warranty finished. paid too much for it, too pretty to throw out as it looks nearly new but only works when it wants to... such a pity and feel so bad to discard from a environmental point of view. wish they could just fix it.

After two years the Morphy Richards toaster is ready to be replaced. Although pretty on the outside the toast comes out either burnt or uncooked on one side. The bread has to be put through twice because if I turn the setting up it burns. The toast is hard to get out once it is cooked. It takes a long a time to cook. When I press the lever down I either have to press twice or really slam it down. I would not purchase this product again.

Not Good - so slow.
This is more a bread warmer and a toaster. I am using home made rye bread which usually takes longer to toast than commercial bought bread but this toaster was so frustratingly slow - and then didn't fully toast the bread.
I should have read the earlier reviews before buying. It has since been returned.

Didn't last, didn't live up to expectations
After buying this toaster I read the reviews, and wished I had read them first. But, I thought, its only a toaster and how bad can it be? It has always been slow, but otherwise toasted ok. Occasionally the bread would pop out of the toaster when done and end up on the floor. For the price of $95 I did expect better quality and soon after the warranty period ended it started playing up, with the lever not staying down, then it started to fail to toast on both sides. Now it just doesn't toast on either side, it just slowly warms the bread. I will be looking at brands other than Morphy Richards for my next toaster.

Good toaster, but a bit slow
The design, like most Morphy Richards toasters, is quite attractive. It combines both a classic "old-school" appearance with a modern, streamline appearance. In terms of functionality, I love the wide toaster slots, which can fit cafe toast or hot cross buns (halved), without the sides burning or the struggle of removal afterwards. It has additional features such as a defrost function, and a "warming" function, which can also come in handy if the toast is ready before you are. My toast has always been cooked evenly, without burning or charring ...of corners or edges. The fact that it has 4 slots (great feature), is unfortunately offset by the slow cook time. For a slice of lightly toasted bread (on setting 2), it takes over 2.5 minutes. If the purpose is to make toast for only 1 - 2 people, then this is a great toaster. But if your intention is to cook for a larger group, the timing becomes an undesirable factor as if you wait, the initial pieces become cold.

Wouldn't buy this again
Bought this 6 years ago and it recently failed on one side. It has always been very slow to toast, with the elements barely glowing, but now the right-hand side has stopped working completely, the lever won't stay down, while the left side still works. Toasting was always quite inconsistent as well, uneven across the bread, and different each time. Not worth the $99 spent on it, a K-mart cheapie would probably have lasted as long, although I guess getting 6 years out of any small appliances is almost a miracle nowadays.

This toaster and kettle are soooooo bad...
This brand is very sub standard don’t waste your money you will get a better result from your standard Kmart/target toaster and kettle I’m very serious, let me start with the kettle, it’s might look good but it works just like the cheap kettle in a way where just to fill it up with water is a task and to pour the water the lip on the kettle is just not functional they really have not thought about the small things that make a kettle so good at being a kettle.
Now the the toaster the 4 slice toaster wow people wow, I have never regretted purcha...
We have been dudded,we spent the extra money and thought we were getting a good product and it will not toast any sought of bread, it is as if the thermostat does not do anything you put it on full it takes for ever and you still have to do it all again. We should have saved our money and bought one from Kmart ps we did buy it at the end of 2016and has never been any good
Looks great but toasts unevenly
Looks fantastic which is why we bought but doesn’t toast the bread evenly, the top of the bread toasts quicker so to get the whole piece of toast done it burns the top half. I have had to toast half way then take it out and turn the bread upside down - not ideal for a $100 toaster.
Been the best toaster I have owned
Never had any bread stick Thick or thin .I can cook Crumpets muffins BreadRolls and it always cooks evenly .Will buy another still going strong though.I recommend it to anyone .even though mine is discontinued. I will buy another .Value for money Thanks guys for a fantastic product .Great Machine
Good luck making contact
Bought a Morphy Richards kettle - then spent 1.5hrs trying to get matching toaster. Almost impossible to get in touch with a Morphy Richards directly. When I finally did was advised they could not help and only 3 toasters left Australia wide and would need to contact any of 3 stores that stock their stuff, as this toaster was discontinued model. was then advised by 2 of these stockists they no longer stock this brand and Morphy Richards discontinue stock quite frequently so could not in fact order as I was advised by Morphy richards rep. I now have a kettle I cant match with a toaster and will NEVER use this company again
Questions & Answers
Unfortunately my wife did not keep the receipt so I do not expect a refund. I think we purchased over 2 years ago also. Just letting you know that the elements (from new) barely glow even on full heat setting, we bought a cheap Sunbeam straight after which did the job 100%. Very disappointing for what we thought was a good brand.

I'm sorry for the wait Bruce. We are all working remotely due to Covid 19 and this may cause some congestion in the phone lines at this time.
Hi I am wondering what is the voltage of this toaster?
