Best DeLonghi kettle and toaster set 

Italian small appliance brand DeLonghi is a popular choice for high-end kettles and toasters. And it’s not hard to see why, with quality materials and glossy finishes that look smart and sophisticated on your counters. But do they do the job well too?

Only logged-in Which? members can see our top DeLonghi kettle and toaster set recommendations below. If you’re not yet a member, join Which? to get instant access to all our reviews.


It’s not quite a Best Buy, but this  kettle gets a lot right. It’s really quick to boil, doesn’t waste energy, and has an effective limescale filter that will keep flakes out of your drinks – but it is quite noisy.


There’s substance behind the style of this elegant four-slice toaster. It makes really tasty, golden-brown toast that’s even across both faces of the slice.

Best textured / patterned kettle and toaster set 

Looking for something a little different? A textured kettle and toaster adds a quirky sense of style to your kitchen, with unique shapes and patterns that are bound to stand out, even on the busiest worktops.


Stylish textured kettles don’t have to be expensive, as this model proves. It’s energy efficient, quick to boil and won’t disturb the peace in the kitchen. It’s user-friendly, and the filter is effective.


You’ll love the toast from this two-slot toaster. It pops up beautifully browned slices in next to no time, and the well-designed crumb tray is easy to remove and replace for cleaning.

Best copper / rose gold kettle and toaster set 

The copper and rose gold trend is still going strong, but you don't have to spend a fortune to get the look.

See our top pick below, and see all the latest models using the copper and rose gold colour filters on our kettle reviews and toaster reviews.


This kettle performs well across the board. It doesn’t waste energy by boiling more than it needs, and it’s quick and easy to use, with a good limescale filter, too.


You don't need to choose style or substance - this toaster has both. It's not the fastest we've tested, but the perfect even browning makes this a high scoring Best Buy.

Best cheap kettle and toaster set 

It can be tricky to find an inexpensive set, let alone one that can make the perfect tea and toast, but we've uncovered some brilliant cheaper pairs that put pricier rivals to shame. Here's our top pick:


A few niggles mean it’s not quite a Best Buy, but this kettle gets the basics right. It’s quick to boil, lets you boil just one cup of water, and the effective filter will keep your drinks limescale free.


This cheap toaster is easy to use and clean, makes very nice toast, and is one of the few we’ve tested that can fit taller slices. It’s definitely worth a look.

How to get the best deal on a kettle and toaster set 

Shop around

It pays to shop around online for kettles and toasters. Retailers such as Argos and Currys often offer bundle deals that make the pair much cheaper than buying separately. It’s also worth checking Amazon for its ‘frequently bought together’ discounts.

Although a bundled deal is often your best bet, it makes sense to check the individual prices of each product before you buy, just in case a discounted item makes the pair cheaper.

Scour the seasonal sales

The January sales, or September sales - when shops try to tempt students heading to university to stock up on budget kitchen gadgets - are good times to look for bargain kettle and toaster sets. Older colour options or styles that are being phased out may be cheaper than normal.


Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco can be a good place to shop for low-cost, own-brand kettle and toaster packs from as little as £12. Paying less doesn't automatically mean you're stuck with an ugly white plastic creation though. We've found some affordable, stylish options, including copper kettles and toasters. The quality of supermarket own-brand appliances varies a lot though, so check our reviews before you buy to avoid a dud.

Another way to keep costs down is to buy from a reliable brand. We’ve found that some kettle and toaster brands are prone to faults, so you’ll likely need to replace them every few years. For the products that go the distance, see our guides to the top kettle brands and top toaster brands.

Our kettle and toaster tests

We've tested many hundreds of kettles and toasters over the years so we know a thing or two about how to sort the best from the rest. Our tests are independent and objective - we test each appliance to the same standard so it's easy to compare across different models. 

We can tell you how fast each kettle boils, how noisy it is and how efficient it is, plus any annoying ease of use issues to consider. For toasters, we rate how well they brown each side of the slice, and how consistently they toast, as well as how quick they are and how well they fit different-sized slices.
