What is the model number for the Russel Hobbs Classic toaster tested? The one that is currently available, and on the russel hobbs website is nothing like this one: visually the control buttons are horizontal and different. The deluxe, which is a lot more expensive, looks similar, but has a different body.

The Breville radio toaster came across as the most gadget-y of the toasters: the Russell Hobbs as the most interesting - give me a good piece of toast! I echo Martin's comment - what is the model number? The RH classic on the RH website does not look the same (control buttons most obviously different).

Same as other comments listed. Good review but so many model numbers and looks different on shopping web sites to the one reviewed. Help!!!!

Dear Gadget Show Do any of your staff know the model number? This model isn't shown on amazon or Russell Hobbs own website... Please advise. Mat

I emailed Russell Hobbs. Maybe someone from them has seen the show. This could be the making of Russell Hobbs, a toaster that actually works! I've never bought one that manages even brownness all over the slice, with a soft middle. Looks like it will sell out if only we could buy one.......

Well done nick! I didn't bother to look at the other toasters, the vertical buttons view is from the Breville! Now to find someone who has the Russell Hobbs still in stock....

I might have just ordered one, no verified by visa things happened though, so I doubt it will go through.

Our local Asda are selling the Satin Steel version of this classic toaster for just £19 (reduced from £29.99)!! - They had 20-30 of them on the shelf. Looks to be the same toaster as reviewed appart from the metal finish. See here:

The 'Russell Hobbs Classic 2 Slice Toaster 13766' is not the one on this show, if you look back the 3 buttons are in a vertical line on the right hand side! NOT horizontal line like the '13766', Keep looking!!!! Come on gadget show, give us the model number, you of all people should no, the model number is a must, one model to the next can be very bad or good! Give us the truth, look now many people are asking & wasting there time, I thought that's what your show was for!
