Rubbish X 100000 Do not buy - plenty of other great stylish toasters out there with durability, this is not one of them. I was given one of these for my wedding along with the matching kettle. Both broke within 18 months. I have since gone on to buy numerous replacements, but the toaster just broke AGAIN this week - This time I will not replace it! What I don't understand is, surely all of the people who have bought these Porche items must have returned them numerous times to be replaced... (read more)

We are on our 2nd kettle and 3rd toaster, toaster just wont stay down or heat up. called siemens and complained they said they would look at it free of charge then quoted £100 to fix it. They even denied there is an inherent problem, hah we know different. I have taken it apart now twice cant see whats causing issue so threw in the bin now. Siemens should be ashamed, companies should be in business to keep their customers happy not feel ripped off!! (read more)

Great looking toaster but we have had so many problems with it - we are on our second now. The first we treated ourselves to with the kettle (never had any problems with the kettle)about four years ago - the mechanism that holds your croissant broke, the cover wouldnt work and the handle on the side got really stiff that you hurt your wrist trying to work it - we took it back to John Lewis within 18 months and got a free replacement. Now this one - again after 18 months - the handle is stiff... (read more)

A device which is basically an "electromagnet" retains the heating elements in the lowered (hot) postion till toasting is complete. This tiny bar eventually gets dirty through fine crumbs of bread becoming damp and then sticking to the metal, thus preventing the "electromagnet" from holding the heaters down. Because of our vastly exaggerated "safety" madnes, the screws in toasters are so designed that no ordinary "screwdriver" can open up the machine.
Does nobody realise that any housewife... (read more)

I decided to buy the TT91100GB toaster because of its sexy outer body which houses the mechanics of what i can only describe as as being out of this world. I experimented in the first few months of purchase with different bread ranging from white all the way to brown (including best of both) also experimenting with different accompaniments. After weeks of testing i have found that cooking Kingsmill white thin sliced bread using Tesco value Butter is close to heavenly. Cook at 4.5. Once it... (read more)

Althought his toaster was received as a gift, it was incredibly expensive for very poor toasting results. The slot is not big enough to fit a standard slice of bread and although the heating elements are susposed to toast evenly -they don't - ever! I have purchased far cheaper, more efficient and durable toasters than this one. Looks nice though. (read more)

The Siemens TT91100GB toaster (designed by F.A Porsche) works by having two heating elements facing each other on either side of the toaster. The theory is that the curved reflective inner surface will ditribute the heat evenly, producing wonderfull results. Utter rubbish - the elements toast best in the dead centre of the machine with the toast often starting to char here, whilst it remains as dry bread at the outer edges. The pop-up mechanism works poorly with the machine needing shaking... (read more)
