Expert review

If you don't want to spend a lot on a new toaster, then you might be considering the Russell Hobbs Darwin 23860. It comes in a range of block colours and has a matching kettle, too. Our tests prove that there's no need to compromise on performance if you go for a cheap toaster, but is this model one of our bargain Best Buys, or better left on the shelf?
