Summary: It was rated best buy by consumers report, but I can't say that its much better than several others I have bought. It came set on number five. We like toast a little darker so I set it on number six, but it reverts back to number five so each day I have to reset it again.
Summary: When I received my toaster I did a couple of tests on bread to see what color was best for me and have left it at that setting and it's a great toaster. Saw in a consumer report that this toaster is better than a more expensive brand, Kitchen Aid.
Summary: We tried several toasters (from average price to more expensive) and they only toasted one side. This toaster was recommended to us and we are quite pleased with it. It was a good price and toasts both sides better than any other toaster we triedl. We have used this toaster for about 3 months. However. It doesn't do as God's of a job on muffins.
Summary: The toaster is simple to use and doesn't have a bunch of unnecessary bells & whistles. I like my toast pretty well done; so it set the toaster to 7 and it comes out perfect every time. After several weeks of use, I have no complaints at all.
Summary: We like the relatively easy adjustibility and control of darkness of toasting. Also, the machine does a reasonable job with bagels. It is very easy to clean and it looks good. We have now used it a number of times on a good range of baked goods, with good results every time. After one month's use, we are well satisfied. We regard it as a good value at the price.
Summary: Now that I have had this toaster for awhile I do not like! It toast unevenly. The slots are so small they will not toast one whole slice of bread. And when I can I will replace it. I wish I had kept my old toaster that we had many many years. The wrong toaster when to the dump! J.
