All about the looks
At time of publication this appears to be the only single slice toaster on the market. Why would anyone want a toaster that only does 1 slice? I purchased this unusual model simply because I felt the 2 slice toasters looked too large next to my small kettle (Breville BKE395CLR). I wanted something that matches the size of my small kettle. I've also never needed to toast more than 1 slice, as 2 slices of bread is too much carbs for me in one sitting. If you need to do 2 slices, the toast time is around 80 seconds per slice, so you coul...d still do 2 slices in a reasonable amount of time. Although I doubt many people are willing to suffer the inconvenience of having to do them separately. The toaster appears to work fine, without any significant cons that I can see. Evenness of toasting is not perfect, but not bad either. As it toasts quickly, I was concerned that perhaps it doesn't toast as deep into the bread as a slower toaster does. Perhaps there is some truth to this, but I don't have any actual evidence to back it up. I find if I let the toast cool for a bit after toasting, it becomes firmer which makes it seem like the bread is more toasted to the core. Nitpicks: - The slider mechanism is slightly quirky in that it appears to be electronically controlled such that you have to hold it fully depressed for around 300 milliseconds before the latch will engage. I've never seen a toaster with this behaviour, but it doesn't bother me so it's ok. I guess it's a safety feature or something. I checked the display model and it was the same, so it doesn't appear to be a fault. - The LED display is blue, which imo is the wrong colour. Blue LED's are gimmicky, and blue is not the colour of heat, it's the colour of cool. Would have preferred orange or red, which are more synonymous with heat. Thankfully the LED display only comes on when toasting, otherwise that would have been a dealbreaker for me.
