The very best
I had many Coles reward point and chose to get a smeg toaster and a smeg kettle
The toaster is the best toaster I have ever used around the world
Toast come out crunchy and perfect in every way.
would never buy any other toaster ever
Not only do they look great they cook well too
Good toaster does job
I have had none of the problems mentioned in other reviews here. Seems to toast evenly with good colour. Like that it is simple to use and does job - really what I want in a toaster. The instructions also recommend that you clean out the crumb tray after every use. The tray does look like it would fill up fairly quickly with crumbs and cause a short if you do not clean it. As my last toaster a Breville packed up with an unexplained ‘electrical fault’ I have been doing this religiously and it appears after 6 months that I have had no problems wi...th reliability. I wonder whether this might be the cause of the problem for others here too? Maybe my Smeg will fail too but it hasn’t yet. Will keep you updated if it does. Update July 2020. This toaster is still going strong. Good toaster - important to keep tray clean..

I got my Smeg 4 slice toaster through flybuys last year and I can’t find the paper work for it but it would be lucky to be 12 months old.I love the look of it and how it cooks my toast but now it just stopped working and you can’t push the bread down in it without it cutting my power off all the time.For an expensive toaster I thought it would of lasted longer.I have been in touch with smeg and they have sent me a replacement toaster without any hassle.I can’t thank them enough
Looks great....fails at toasting
Love the look, fits in nicely when left on bench top.
Sadly it fails at doing its core function....toasting (“You had one job!”). Toast comes out uneven, burnt on one side/barely toasted on the other, edges equally as uneven. This is regardless of how you position the slice in the toaster.
What a pity
I absolutely adore my SMEG oven so I was keen to get my hands on the kettle and toaster. After only purchasing the toaster in May, one side of the toast comes up perfect while the other is barely touched. I now toast in my SMEG oven rather than the actual toaster. Disappointing after such a positive experience with many other products from this premium range.
6 months old going good
Though the quality isn’t overly great the style is so nice and is the only toaster I actually like the look of, stainless steel doesn’t get too dirty either. And the functions are really easy to use and have a nice shade of light, toast comes out good also.
Looks good but thats it.
So cheaply made that when the toast pops, usually with burnt crusts, it pop right out of the toaster with a clank!
It certainly is retro, like going back in time, nothing modern about this toaster, no smooth rise up and down, no fruit bread setting, constantly having to look to see if the toast is burning because 3.5 is too light and 4 is burnt. Bread comes out dry and unenjoyable. Toast is my cheat food in the mornings and this toaster is ruining it for me! But I like how it makes my kitchen look so ....
P.S this toaster has nothing o...
SMEG is really premium brand?
After some of my poor experiences with SMEG appliances, unfortunately I bought new one - toaster. To be clear - I had washing machine - it failed after ca 5 years without possibility or repair (before the diagnosis I spent significant money on service). I had oven - it had never worked properly, I got rid of it when only I change some kitchen equipment. I also had two gas plates - first one was ordering in not acceptable way, the second one did nor work properly with starting fire. But the toaster was really beautiful... So what, it it failed a...fter 3 months of using it. I bough it from a person who won it in some lottery - so that I don't have purchasing proof... When I asked to repair basing on warranty card (I have all docs), I got an answer that it was sold in 2015. I think it was produced in 2015, I am sure it was brand new when I bought it. IT IS NOT PREMIUM BRAND.
Looks nice, but does not last and is NOT worth the money
I bought the Smeg TSF02 toaster because 1) Smeg is a premium brand, 2) the product had the features we wanted (four slice) and 3) it looked nice. The first toaster lasted about 18 months before an electrical fault with the device required that it be replaced, which it was under warranty. The second one lasted about 12 months. Same electrical fault with the toaster. The toast was never quite right in these machines. Also, the mechanism for getting the toast out of the toaster seemed to be set for baseball players and you almost needed a bas...eball glove to catch the toast before they fell out onto the bench or the floor! The device was horrible, and I paid over $200 for this product. Never again! Stay away from these things, they are terrible.
I bought the Pastel blue 4 slice toaster and kettle just over 2 years ago. The toaster keeps sparking and causing the circuit to switch off. The paint on the kettle has bubbled and split causing it to peel. I have had no problems with evenness of toasting.
I paid extra because they are such an attractive design but am a little disappointed they haven't lasted any longer than a much cheaper brand would.
I purchased this toaster just over a year ago and was attracted to the vintage look. It is absolutely terrible to use. Have to set toaster to a 1 as any higher setting burns the toast. I wish Smeg products would be of a higher standard as I would have liked to purchase the fridge too. I would not purchase Smeg in the future as I have read nothing but poor reviews.
Nice design but poor quality
Terrible toaster. Just 2 years of infrequent using. It stopped to working. It looks nice but unevenly cooked toasts and stopped to work at all. Unfortunately have to buy the same as all our small appliances in our kitchen of this design and color. We are very disappointed about luxury Italian brand.
We purchased this toaster mainly because of the brand name and design. After 5 months the toaster stopped working. David Jones replaced it, but now the warranty on the second toaster has runout by 4 months and it has stopped working. Never ever had a product this bad .We are now using our old ( 10 year old sunbeam) toaster.
Only toasts one side of the bread
This toaster looks very nice, but it gradually started cooking unevenly and now after a year one side of the element has stopped working altogether. It iwas disappointing because I have had many SMEG appliances which have been extremely reliable.
After I raised this problem, SMEG customer service got back to me the same day and delivered a replacement toaster, under warranty, within a few days. They were responsive and efficient
Looks good but bad quality
Wrote a review about kettle also which is terrible quality. Expect better from Smeg. Toaster had to be returned 10 months later with little use as the lever would not stay down so had to hold it down to toast. Also toast pops up so dramatically my bread always goes flying out... not ideal. How is it so easy to mess up a toaster when your paying $300... go to Kmart instead.
After loving the SMEG kettle, I purchased the matching white 4 slice toaster. Omg! I love it. I love the style.. so chic. Looks amazing in my kitchen.
The bagel function is the best! The bagel is defrosted perfectly. Doesn't get stuck in the toaster.
The only thing I noticed is that if you put a thin slice of bread, the toast flys out of the toaster! Can be bit annoyed.
I Still love this toaster and totally recommend it.

2nd one now in 2 months.
It only toast on one side the outer part of the toaster. Inside does not get hot. I just returned one and waited 2 weeks for the new one. Old one was less than 2 months old and never worked. I already sent an email to you. I love all the other Smeg Items I own . But this one???
I purchased the Smeg toaster presuming for the price it would toast perfectly. It has only ever toasted one side, you have to turn it around during toasting to get it even. I think for the price you would expect it to be perfect every time. I have bought cheaper brands before and have had more success.
Of course you can find cheaper toasters than Smeg, but as my father used to say: buy cheap, buy twice. I have a pair of RM Williams boots. They are now 15 years old. They cost me over $250 way back when and now to replace them it would cost me nearly $500. Have I had value from them? Yes. Do they look good? Yes. And the same goes for Smeg. Part of the reason we buy a coloured toaster from Smeg is that we want something that looks good - anyone that says they bought a Smeg because of its performance alone is a liar . And why not have something t...hat makes you feel better about yourself? On the subject of toast, the Smeg performs well. I am dark and crunchy toast guy and my wife prefers it the way normal people eat it toast, but in both cases Smeg works well, and 'yes' you can toast more than just bread with it, and 'yes' it has reliable variation settings, and even if it didn't you'd still buy one because their just so very, very pretty.
Great Quality Toaster and recommended to all but here is a suggestion SMEG
These days it is hard to find long lasting great traditional quality appliances. Goods have become increasingly fast moving and if you can get an appliance that lasts beyond its warranty period and up to at least 5 years without extending warranty then great. But if you are to invest $199 ($169 from David Jones if you are lucky as they seldom get discounted and when they do always out of stock as they are very popular) in a Toaster then you would expect great functionality and quality. This is exactly what you get with SMEG such great quality p...roducts and a real Statement in any kitchen. I needed convincing from the wife, especially when you can pick up any cheap toaster at $20 from a discount store. You cannot go wrong with SMEG, BUT and this is more of a suggestion for the great designers at SMEG - Come on we bought a Black SMEG Toaster and guess what colour is the electrical cord.......grey yet every appliance we have on the kitchen bench has a black cord and not so noticeable. Please SMEG take this on board as constructive criticism and change your electrical cords to black, keeping all the focus on your beautifully constructed appliances and not on the grey cord. Anyway my 2 cents worth but again great products and worth every dollar.
Questions & Answers
Is there a way to adjust the spring on the eject mechanism as it seems all these throw the toast out onto the bench and floor. I have put a rubber band (I had to experiment to find one which worked) around the eject lever and under the timer knob, which works as a temporary fix. It also is very slow, but we can live with that.
Dear Anon, I am the National l Service Manager for Smeg and I would like to assist with this problem, could you please email me direct at [email protected] with your address, telephone contact details and also if you can scan me a photograph of the rating plate from the base of the appliance. Once I have this information I will be in a position to ascertain what to do to fix this problem. Regards, Steve Cullen
Does this come in a long slot version? for toasting flat breads?
I have the long slot Smeg toaster. I would not recommend it to anyone. The long slot is the unit’s only redeeming feature. It’s a
cheap and nasty product pretending to be executive end, with its high end price. My expectations weren’t high, after all it’s only a toaster, but I feel this piece of junk was a huge disappointment. See what else you can find, Theresa.
My toast literally comes flying out!
Why? Does this happen to anyone else?
Have had toaster since November 18”
