I'm  a busy guy & just don't have the time to go looking for basics, it took 5 minutes from landing on this site to buying my new kettle, knowing everything here is quality made my choice so much easier.

I don't mind spending hours on Amazon looking for things I really want, but not for a toaster. I bought my old one because it looked nice it  was rubbish, my toast wouldn't go all the way down in the slot, the Bosch one I got here is great. 

Thanks Guys


My husband gets up at 4: 30 to go to work, his banging about with the kettle drove the rest of us mad, one look on here and I bought the Breville hot water dispenser, now he gets up, presses a button and gets his wake up cuppa without waking up the rest of the house. I still can't belive that something so good only costs £35.

Painfree shopping is right, I nearly picked up a toaster from Sainsburys, but no one could tell me anything about it, lucky I didn't buy it I contacted Painfree and they told me the  one I wanted  is not on their best buy list for a reason, they tend to break down after a year. They recommended the  Morphy Richards 242002 Accents, £15 cheaper than the one I had my eye on and works great.
