Sage by Heston Blumenthal Smart 4-SliceToaster

Product information

The Sage by Heston Blumenthal 4-Slice Toaster exudes elegance, high quality design and innovation.

This motorised die cast toaster has Smart Toast™ functions that allow you to get the perfect piece of toast every time. Push button controls include a Lift & Look™ option and A Bit More™ option. The Lift & Look™ function activates the motorised carriage to gently raise the bread just long enough to check if it's done to your liking. If not press ‘A Bit More™’ and the carriage lowers once more to give it a few seconds longer until the desired level of browning is reached. LED’s count down the toasting progress for you and automatic raising and lowering lets you sit back and relax in the mornings. Crumpet and defrost settings are also on hand for ease and convenience.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect toaster I bought this yesterday to replace a broken toaster, so can't review for longevity, but it is a very impressive machine. The slots are deep enough so all the bread is evenly toasted, the 'quick look' function slowly raises the toast and lowers it again so you can see how done it is without resetting the timer. The 'a bit more function' gives the toast an extra 30 seconds, and it's easy to cancel toasting if you need to. Reassuringly, the sales assistant in John Lewis said that they had never had anyone needing to return a faulty or broken Sage toaster. It's very expensive but looks and behaves like a high-quality piece of kit. 22 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is not a matching set with the Soft Open Kettle I bought the Sage kettle last year 2014 from JL and it is delightfull - a pleasure to use and is tactile. Imagine when my old faithfull toaster packed in I decided to replace with the "matching" (not), toaster from Sage, through JL of course. It does not match, it is a different colour of silver and is a different material from the toaster. It purports to be set and it certainly is not! It may be as good a toaster as other users say and no doubt it is or I would not have been thinking of buying it from my favourite store - JL. Fortunately, I noticed the discrepancy and it is surely a manufacturing blunder when I visited JL Glasgow Disappointed Helensburgh 04 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome toaster This is the best toaster I have owned. It actually toasts the bread evenly, and you can make it toast to differing levels of brownness - you are not restricted to uncooked and burnt, which seem to be the only choices with some other toasters. There have been some nice design thoughts too - e.g., crumb trays that pull out at the front (so convenient), and a visible count-down to when the toast is going to pop up (tremendously helpful). The gadget quotien helps keep it fun too - the kids love it, and the technophobe grandparents can operate it without trouble. This is an expensive toaster, and it took me a long time to convince myself to buy it, but I am very happy. Really can't fault it, and will definitely make me consider other Sage/Heston appliances in the future. 20 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by OMG...I love this toaster! FANTASTIC! I love how quick it toasts the bread and it is so easy to use. Lots of different toasting options at the press of a button, the lights give you an idea of how long to go till ready although you'll never need to stare again at the toaster waiting for the toast to be ready as it really is very quick! It's a great looking toaster with a real modern and minimalistic look which is a refreshing change to a lot of retro style toasters. Love love love it! 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use!! Bought this Toaster because our old one died. It is easy to understand the instruction,easy to keep clean. The best features are the checking if the toast is brown enough or will need a little bit more and the size of the slots are perfect. We like fat boy toast not the skinny ones. It was a very good buy!!!! 30 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great toast We've only had this for a week, so can't comment on its longevity but so far so good: Easy to use controls Toasts evenly Love the 'quick look' and 'a bit more' buttons both of which are really great additions to the standard controls Soft lift, which doesn't add any functionality but gives a feeling of real quality Lifts the toast right up, so you can get it out without burning your fingers 25 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Toaster Ever Bought this about 6 days ago. Looks stylish,and each time the toast comes out - it's crispy outside and soft inside,even with different width bread slices. Very elegant and when the toast is done it comes out so quietly. So far (only 6 days of use!!!), very pleased we bought this toaster. 11 June 2013
