Magimix 2-Slice Vision Toaster
Nice but broke after 18 months
We bought this in April 2012 but last month it broke - the knob wouldn't stay down so you had to hold it down to toast. Fortunately we still had the receipt so we took it back to JL and it was sent off for repair. This took 2 weeks and it now works OK. We have had cheaper toasters than this that have lasted a lot longer. Maybe this fault was just a one-off but they do say their products are made to last longer. Tip = keep hold of your receipt.

Magimix 2 slice toaster
No 5 setting makes perfect toast ,in fact the best toast I have ever had from a toaster. The slide out drawer that catches crumbs works well & no excess crumbs fall from toaster after that is cleaned to mess up cupboard when stored. It does not need turning upside down like most toasters to shake out crumbs even when drawer has been cleaned . It is quite heavy which makes it very stable on kitchen surface as it cannot move easily like most toasters. The glass front/back open by pressing button under toaster for easy cleaning of glass if required. The sides of toaster do get very warm whereas the double glazed glass do not to touch.The width to insert bread or buns in is very generous so no problems .The reheat facility is very useful.I do find however that it is better to heat the toaster up with no bread in first and let that pop up & then put bread in to toast as its a bit slow in my opinion this way the toast is even better.Visually to see what stage the toast is at ,is nice so you can take it out exactly to perfection especially when you are deciding what number to set the dial.It is the nicest toaster I have ever had & would recommend highly even though it is more expensive than most toasters maybe

Just love this toaster - no more burnt toast and when toasting tea cakes which only have to be slightly toasted I can see when they are toasted enough and pop them up. Just wonderful.
Lovely colour matches my kitchen. Nice modern shape.
Only one negative, the cord and plug would of looked better in white than in black.

A Toaster that delivers
At last my prayers have been answered. I have been frustrated for years by poor toasters. This product gets full marks for excellent results.

Expensive but great
I bought this for 2 reasons: to stop my anyone burning the toast and to stop the children pulling the toaster under some kitchen cabinets so that they could see into the toaster. It's worked on both counts. It produces perfect toast once you have got the setting correct, looks good and provides a talking point.

I enjoy buying things that I love looking at which stands to reason except I never thought this could be true of a toaster! In my opinion, this is a beautiful toaster (as beautiful as a toaster can be) it's sturdy, it's easy to clean, I haven't burnt anything (yet) and it does the job it's meant to with a few added extras that you wouldn't get on a cheaper branded product.
I haven't used it to toast anything one sided but I know that i can if i needed to, I love thick crusty bread and the width and depth of the slot means that I don't have to squash the bread in so it doesn't get stuck when it pops up. There is not one slot but it is long enough for two big chunks of bread. I don't think bread tastes any different but it sure is handy to see when the bread is toasted to your taste and it saves time having to scrape burnt bits off your bread.
The only reason I haven't scored it 5 stars is because it is so expensive. I know Magimix is a premium brand with a good reputation which is another reason for spending that little extra - I like to buy things that I trust will last and give value for money - but I would be embarrassed to tell people how much it cost. It's a toaster for goodness sake!

Looks very special, makes great toast !
Probably costs more than a lot of people will wish to pay, but it does every thing you require. After the first week of use we had found our ideal degree of toasting, and the toast is completely different than we have eaten in the past.
The one sided toasting feature is great with bagels and French sticks.
Our friends are impressed with its looks !
