I am always looking for ways to update our home. We have lived here over a year and we are slowly trying to make it our own. There are still so many parts of the house that need updating or adding our touch to them.
I have been seeing a lot of rose gold around at the moment and I love it. When AO contacted me and asked me if I would review the Breville Strata Luminer Rose Gold Kettle and toaster I jumped at the chance. We did have a stainless steel set which was looking quite dated and I really didn’t like the way they get so many fingerprints and smudges on them.
The delivery of the items was great. I had been given a time and day via text message and email. Unfortunately I was doing the nursery run when the items were being delivered so this had to be re arranged. AO will only deliver to the person on the order so they cannot leave a calling card and deliver to a neighbour or leave in a safe place.
When I rang and explained I have to do the nursery run and can’t wait in from 9-5pm the lady was so helpful an gave me a 10-2pm slot which was fab. The delivery guy rang me half an hour before hand to check that I was in which was great.
The parcels arrived on time and very well packaged in one piece. I was thrilled when I opened them. the colour is just gorgeous and they make a fabulous addition to the kitchen. I love that I can now build around the rose gold theme with these new additions.
The quality of both the kettle and toaster are fab , you can tell they are sturdy and built to last. I love that the kettle has a built-in limescale filter , especially good if you live in a hard water area. The rapid boil as another amazing feature as there is nothing worse than having to wait a long time for a kettle to boil. The boil dry protection is a good feature too in case it accidentally gets knocked on with no water in it. Overall I was really pleased with the kettle and could not find a fault with it.
The toaster is a two slice toaster which we find works for us as we all like different things for breakfast and never have the same. I love the defrost function on the toaster , I’m always put off freezing bread as we would have to wait for it to defrost but this makes it easy. There is also a bagel function which is great for us as we love bagels.
I was really surprised with how evenly it toasts , this was a god feature as some toasters can tend to just toast the middle. The removable crumb tray was really handy and caused less mess. There is also a re heat option which for us works as I’m always dealing with the little ones so can sometime forget that I have made toast for myself.
Overall I am very happy with the new additions to our kitchen and am on the lookout for some more rose gold bits.
