Reviews and Problems with Hamilton Beach 2 Slice Toaster

Had high hopes

Summary: I purchased this based on the good reviews and I must say I am just 'meh' about it. It is not different than any other toaster I have ever owned. It does not brown evenly at all. Not all the coils even light up while it's working.
Summary: Toasters in general leave a lot to be desired for me. This one is worth what I paid for it. Mostly consistent toasting. Slots are neither wide enough nor long enough for Artisan Breads and Bagels. It's light, its attractive. I will be happy with it if it just stays consistent for a year or so.
Summary: This toaster needs a better handle to move forward and back for use in open area. As it is now, it is hard to grip the toaster to move forward and then back to its original position, eg, from under a low cabinet space. Otherwise it works great.
Pros: Excellent Heating, Lots of Room, Precise Controls
Summary: This toaster works well so far, but the dial for using the right setting for the toasting amount, has a very small marking on it and it is hard to see for regulating. The marking on the knob is so small, and is not noticeable enough to be able to set it, without getting a magnifying glass.
Summary: Ok to start I'm just a regular 28 yr old that likes stylish, effective, and a good price/quality of a product. 4 stars ONLY cause I got it today. Packing was just like going to your local Wal-Mart. Everything included. Since I can't upload my picture I'll explain.. Pros:1.
This is the best toaster I have owned, and it looks good, too!

Excerpt: Here's a toaster that actually looks good on your counter! It has a brushed finish, making it easy to clean and keep clean looking. It has nice wide openings for bagels or other pastry. The settings are very functional. "Cancel" pops your toast or bagel out.
Excerpt: I like the modern look of this toaster, and I also like that the slots are wide enough for bagels, english muffins, etc. I find the defrost button on this toaster fairly useful. I would be happier if there was a side designated for when I'm just toasting one piece of bread.
Summary: There are several things wrong with this toaster... First, it has a very short cord. We have it sitting on an island cart and the cord is so short that the toast can barely reach the edge of the cart while plugged into a standard height wall plug.
Summary: Like other Amazon customers, my Hamilton Beach toaster worked well, but only for a very short period of time. Mine died of the same problem described by others after only 6 weeks. The handle will not latch down to start the toasting process.
