Excerpt: Seems like we have had several toasters and none would actually toast all of the bread to required doneness. This toaster does what we expected. To toast the bread. Does it quickly and notifies when done with a auditory note. Worth the money to get a toaster that works!
Pros: Beautiful Streamlined Des, Easy To Clean, Even Heating, Lots of Room, Precise Controls, Toasts As Expected
Excerpt: Best toaster I have ever owned! The outside of the toaster stays cool and I never have to worry about my touching the exterior or small children accidentally touching it. I can count on it to handle all sizes and shapes of breads and English muffins. Like the fact that you can check on the progress of the toasting, therefore not ruining toast. The plug is especially handy and sturdy for someone with limited finger motion.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Excellent Heating, Lots of Room, Precise Controls, Versatile
Summary: I kept meaning to leave a review over a year ago, but it kept slipping my mind. As it stands, I love this toaster, nice and roomy for multiple slices of toast, as well as bagels. Nice even toasting, toasts glides up instead of suddenly popping up and startling me to death. The only thing I don't like? All the lettering by the buttons have been rubbed off with cleaning.
Summary: My Mom would Pop me upside the head if she knew I spent this much but this is one deluxe toaster! The cast metal is over-rated and I think the cool white skin on this model is perfect. The mechanics of this toaster seems prone to breakage but after a couple of months all is fine. The slots are ample for the biggest bagel or homemade bread. So splurge if it makes you happy. I'm liking it so far.
