The Kenwood kMix toaster is part of a chic kitchen range.
Available in eight funky colours ranging from lime green to pink it can
add a splash of colour and life in even the most dreary of kitchens. It
is the most compact two-slice toaster we tested measuring just 165mm
tall by 220mm wide and 150mm deep. Just because it’s small it doesn’t
mean the kMix lacks features. It comes with a bun warming rack that
attaches to the top, has variable browning control and can defrost.
of the nicest features is the Peek and View. This lets you lift the
toast using a lever to see how your morning slices are doing without
stopping the cooking process.
The kMix toaster’s slots were deep enough to toast our tall test
slices to the top, but it does have the narrowest ones we tested. If
you like toasting chunky bread you should look elsewhere.
reasonably quick at 2min 48sec for a round of toast but there was some
inconsistency with the browning, with one side being slightly more
toasted than the other.
The Kenwood kMix toaster is one of the most stylish on the market and at
under £50 it’ll brighten up your morning. It’s also the smallest we
tested so if space is an issue it’s a good option. We just would have
liked a more consistent browning.
