I can tell you which one NOT to buy, if that helps. I bought a toaster for my flat in the UK last year and it's crap. Fifty quid, it cost me as well. It doesn't so much toast the bread and warm it up very, very slowly until it's rock hard and slightly beige.
You put your toaster away? We use ours a lot and keep it out. We have a Dualit that we had for a wedding present, but has lasted me for years and years. Toast, pitta bread etc always come out perfectly.
