Resumee

Pro

  • Toaster does not overheat
  • Bun attachment
  • Cable compartment

Cons

  • No lighting
  • Smoke formation

360° View

Reliable toaster including bun attachment, a cable compartment, but without a visual aid in the form of lighting.

General information

The Severin AT 2287 Toaster has a firm stand thanks to the rubber feet. This prevents the 944 g light, plastic and metal toaster from slipping.

Tanning steps

The toaster has a total of seven different tanning levels, which you can set as desired.

Further functions

With the help of a separate release button, you are able to terminate individually and prematurely the toasting process.

In addition to that, the toaster has an integrated roll roasting attachment, with which rolls are prepared and heated. To extend the attachment, you use a lever. At medium browning level, as recommended by the manufacturer, the roll is unevenly brown, evenly warm and crispy on the outside.

After one or two toast slices have been inserted into one of the two slots, press the start lever. There is no visual help with a light that tells you whether the toaster is in operation or not.

Immediately after the toaster is put into operation, a conspicuous chemical smell develops which, however, does not affect the taste of the toast.

The winding of the cable is simplified with the help of a holder underneath the toaster.

Power consumption

The power consumption has a maximum value of 700 W.

Speed

It takes a maximum of 3 minutes and 25 seconds to finish at the highest level. At this time a slight smoke formation develops. The toast is strongly burned from one side and no longer edible.

On the medium level, the toasting process lasts 2 minutes and 20 seconds, the toast is also partly burned.

If you set the toaster to the lowest tanning control level, the toast is ready to eat within 75 seconds. The toast slice occasionally has slightly brownish spots, is slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Cleaning

To make cleaning easier, the toaster has a crumb tray that you can take out separately.
