Summary: After a fair amount of toaster research, I purchased this toaster soon after my husband and I got married. Now, four years later, we're still really happy with it (and with each other). We use the toaster probably six days a week for toast or reheating pancakes or waffles, and we have no complaints.
Summary: I chose 5 star because it did everything it was suppose to do as advertized. When using the lever/dial you can feel the quality. Recommend this toaster to anyone who wants a toaster that does what it's suppose to do.
Summary: Nice toaster. Bread toasts easily. It has a simple dial for timing, added buttons that amend time for bagel, defrost, and reheat. A timer shows time to completion. Four, rather than five stars as top gets vey hot, so a chance of burning fingers when removing toasted items.
Summary: I bought this toaster exactly two years ago. It is used to make four pieces of toast on Saturday and Sunday. It's not used during the week. When it was purchased, it worked fine. About 9 months to a year ago, toast started cooking unevenly and it has become progressively worse.
Summary: Looks beautiful. Works okay. It toasts just fine, seems to take a long time to get color on the toast, maybe it's because I've never had a timer and didn't realize how long it took to toast something.
Summary: This toaster was top rated in Consumer Reports magazine and we concur with their findings. Toast and bagles consistently turn out perfect time after time. The count down timer is a very handy feature as it allow me to make a perfect breakfast, as I can time everything to be piping hot when served.
Summary: 1. Does not toast both sides of a slice of bread to the same degree of doneness. 2. Brushed stainless steel cover needs to be cleaned of fingerprints each time it is used or otherwise touched by human hands.
Summary: Like too many people, I spent far too long researching toasters. There doesn't seem to be a perfect one under $100. Consumer Reports liked this one, so I bought it. C'mon manufacturers, can you not figure out how to put some heat in a box and allow me to control and time it?
Summary: Love this toaster. I read many reviews on the internet, including Consumer Reports. I decided to try this one out. I am very pleased. The browning is very, very consistant. I love the countdown timer.
