Had mine for 12 years, works great and still looks great.
I'm sure my old Delonghi stills works, but the "chrome" had worn off all the parts you touched and it looked pretty shabby by the time I replaced it with my Dualit. Only had my Dualit 10 years but it looks perfect.
Ive had mine 6 years still works , just bought this cause I can (lol)
I have yet to find a toaster that fits a whole normal slice of bread. Every single one to date leaves me with at least an inch of untoasted bread.
Be aware that these, in common with many toasters, don't fit normal-sized bread!
