Resumee

The WMF 1-Slices Toaster works very efficiently. You don't have to wait long to eat the toast and the toaster consumes little energy compared to our other products. It has seven different tanning levels as well as an integrated bread roll attachment. The only disadvantage is that the fingerprints stick on the surface.

Pro

  • 7 different browning levels
  • Integrated bun attachment

Cons

  • Fingerprints stick on surface

Fast toaster with 7 adjustable browning levels, a roll attachment and low energy consumption.

General information

The WMF 1-Discs Toaster has a firm stand thanks to the rubber feet. They prevent the 1040 g chromagen toaster from slipping.

Tanning levels

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

Further function

Regardless of the degree of browning, cooled toast slices are baked crispy again using the warm-up function.

A further function is an option of defrosting frozen products using the defrost button and automatically allowing them to toast longer.

Additionally, the toaster has an integrated, retractable roll attachment for preparing or heating rolls. To extend the attachment, press a lever with adequate power. On a medium browning level, as recommended by the manufacturer, the roll is evenly warm but very soft from the inside.

Thanks to the integrated automatic lift you can remove small toast slices easily and safely.

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

After the toast slice has been inserted into the slot, you start the toasting process by pressing the start lever. Only one slice can be toasted per pass.

Speed

At a low temperature, the toast becomes slightly crispy and remains soft from the inside. The process takes 75 seconds.

If you start the process at a medium level, it will only take slightly longer - 1 minute and 29 seconds in total - until you have a browned toast on your plate, which is crispy on the outside and a bit soft on the inside.

If you operate the toaster at the highest level, the process takes 3 minutes and 23 seconds, but the toast slice is burnt and no longer edible.

It is noticeable that the toaster gets very hot after use.

The power consumption is under 600 W, which is the lowest measured value of all tested toasters.

Cleaning

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

Hi, is it sold with a three pin plug? Also, does it have shipping cost from German amazon? Many thanks, Jill

Hi, Jill! No, it is a two pin plug, so you will need a UK adapter for it.

Do 2 rolls fit on the roll attachment at the same time next to each other?
Avatar
AskGeorge.com
Yes and no - 2 rolls of normal size fit next to each other, but as the attachment is wider than the slot, they are heated more intensely above the slot. The piece that protrudes beyond the slot gets less or no heat.
