- Matching kettle
If you're the impatient type, the black Russell Hobbs Retro toaster could be just what you need. Not only can it toast four slices at once but it has a countdown timer that shows you exactly how long is left until breakfast is ready. Standard slices fit in well enough, but are the slots big enough for a 'toastie' loaf? This is just one of the things we check in our toaster tests; read our full review to find out more.
