Summary: We've had this toaster in our kitchen for a few years. It's been flaky since it was new - many times not keeping the bread down in the toast position. It's gotten worse since then and now neither side works and we're throwing it away. The poor quality of this unit will keep us from purchasing anything else from De'Longhi. I suggest you do the same.
Summary: I love this toaster. Great price, great functionality. The only reason I've given it four stars instead of five is due to the size. It's a little large, but it works perfectly, so I'm fine with that.
Not the strongest, but works with no problems so far

Summary: Was looking for a toaster with 4 slots. This one has been working for almost 2 years. The highest setting is still not enough if you want your bread really dark and crunchy, for example to make bread crumbs. I also had some issues where larger pieces fell down and onto the heater wires. Smells terrible and you have to take the toaster and shake it upside down to get those out. Happy in general.
Summary: Most toastings require to be put down twice to achieve basic browness, one on level six, and the second on level one. Other than that, the variety of offerings is exceellent, from defrost, to bagel, to reheat. Nice addition to counter aesthetics.
