You've got to love the DeLonghi Distinta's twin dials that offer to make your toast the colour that you want it on a scale from 1 to 6. The silver and white dials make a cool contrast to the black chassis.View Deal

We’ve also taken a shine to the wide slots after using many, many toasters over the years that seem particularly adept at greedily accepting your slices of bread and are then very reluctant to spit them out again. Yes indeedy, you’ll get whole toasted slices returned to you, rather than small bready segments and a pile of charred crumbs. The only blackness you’ll see here is on the exterior.

Another red hot feature is the reheat option, that lets you bring toast back to its best if you’ve forgotten to actually take it out, put on butter and eat it. Meanwhile, seeing as most of us seem to keep our bread in the freezer now until it’s needed urgently, usually at silly ‘o’ clock AM, then the defrost mode takes care of any rock-solid slices.

Fear not about crumbs either, as you’re probably expecting a four-slice operation to throw bits of bread all over the shop. Aside from the forgiving wide slots, the DeLonghi Distinta has a brace of neat metal trays at the base of the unit that catch most of what falls from your bread as it toasts to a suitably golden shade. Simply slide ‘em out and bung it out for the birds or perhaps use them to make a delicious gratin, Or vacuum it away. There, gone.
