Summary: Great toaster with a classic look and nice wide slots. The only downside is that it gets a little overly hot on the outside after cooking. It's nice to have the defrost and reheat functions, especially for frozen waffles and toaster strudels.I like it!
Summary: The first piece of toast was darker on one side than the other, and that was after I had to trim part of the bread away since it would not fit in the slot (Jewish rye.) I did not try another, I just packed it back up and put it in the box for return after it cooled. It is not a "cool touch" appliance.
