Pros & Cons of the Breville VTT476 Impressions Toaster
Below we have captured what buyers actually said. This includes all buyers as we like to keep our reviews balanced. Even though only 13 out of 300+ buyers rated these saucepans as a 1 star product, we always like to find out why.
- It looks really good in any kitchen and that applies to all colours - a nice Retro look
- A handy slider to adjust the level of browning and toasting
- It defrosts frozen bread very quickly
- Great to have 4 wide slots and it also toasts the bread quickly and to perfection
- A good brand and very high quality
- Several buyers said that it did not toast bread evenly across all 4 slots
- A few said that it broke down after a few months
- Some said that it would not properly toast the top inch of certain loaves
Clearly a few people had problems with this toaster and hence the 1 star reviews. Overall though it is worth bearing in mind that 3 out of 4 people, rated it as a 5 star. We do like to include the poor reviews, but always make sure to balance these out.
You can see from the image above, that this is a stylish toaster. More importantly though it toasts 4 slices or less, and does that very quickly. The levers make it easy to adjust, and the illuminated controls make it easy to use, and easy to see.

Our Verdict on the Breville VTT476 Inspirations Toaster
The 4.6 out of 5 star buyer rating is very well justified. This is a good toaster and ideal for larger families. The reviews generally speaking are very high with 3 out of 4 buyers, awarding this the full 5 star treatment.
The only thing that puts us off highly recommending a product, is if we find a number of legitimate poor ratings. There were only a few poor ratings, but when compared to the large amount of high reviews, we still rate this Breville toaster very highly.
