This classic two-slice model from Russell Hobbs was crowned the top toaster by Channel 5’s Gadget Show – if you’ve got your eye on one, here’s where to buy it for less.
It’s not often you see a whole segment about toasters on the telly, so when we saw that the Gadget Show had rated the Russell Hobbs silver Classic toaster as its number one toaster recently, we thought we’d follow it up with a dedicated deal of the week.
Testing the Classic
When we tested the Russell Hobbs Classic 13766 and 14360 toasters in the Which? test lab we were also impressed with how easy the controls were to operate, and found the toaster fits most standard-sized bread and smaller items like teacakes – but it is a bit tricky to keep clean.
You can read our full and independent verdict on the Classic toaster in our toasters review.
Our tests go to great lengths to uncover which toasters produce the perfect toast. We make six rounds of toast with each model: three with fresh bread, and three with frozen. We measure toasting time, the browning coverage and the evenness of the toasting – on both sides.
