Here’s how making toast for breakfast went in our house until last week:
- Put the toaster on to warm
- Put the bread in the toaster
- After a couple of minutes, turn the bread around – the toaster had only cooked one side of bread at a time for months, and then it only did the middle.
- Do NOT leave the toaster unattended as it burns the toast the second you forget about it
- Answer one of the kid’s questions
- Notice a burning smell
- Noooo! The toast has burnt.
That was until last week, when Morphy Richards helped to make our mornings that bit easier. I was delighted last month to be told that I have been chosen as one of Morphy Richards’ Innovators for 2012. We review products that we are sent and help spread the word about promotions that are on.
Last week my brand new sparkly kettle and toaster arrived as part of the Colour Boutique range. I had the choice of what colour set to choose from – they come in fantastic bright shades – The Vibrant collection are Cyan, the most amazing Yellow, Orange and Oasis (like a yellowy lime green) and The Sparkle Collection which are Red, Blue, Copper and a gorgeous Plum. With my bright red kitchen, the choice was easy.
The design truly is beautiful – I can’t believe how trendy yet retro the toaster looks and the kettle looks so tidy. OH has road tested the kettle and his verdict is that the wide neck is perfect to fill up from the tap one-handed. By the way, husband has got both of his hands (wouldn’t be a very good barber without) but one arm has normally got a baby hanging off it!
Millie feels very grown up that she is now allowed to use the new, improved, safe toaster on her own – I even caught her trying to do her hair in its reflection this morning – it is THAT shiny!
The kind people at Morphy Richards are giving you the chance to have your own bit of colour by offering 35% off The Colour Boutique collection to Casa Costello readers until 30th June 2012. I’d love to know what colours you go for – I’m a teeny bit jealous of any owners of the Plum set – looks really luxurious! Go on treat yourself – The usual price of the kettle and the toaster are £59.99 each.
