Barely functional

Laura, Amazon

  • Summary: The only positive thing I can say about this toaster is that it's lightweight and looks nice. It has 1-5 on the settings but it doesn't matter - each slot toasts differently; some totally burnt, some not toasted at all (to the point where you have to turn the bread over to toast the other side). It's cheap, but you get what you pay for. This thing is going right in the garbage.

Excellent Toaster

  • Summary: We've been using this for a couple of months now, with great results. The settings are convenient. Plain toast comes out perfectly on the suggested setting. We've toasted bagels and muffins, too, all come out perfectly. We replaced a similar toaster, also a Hamilton Beach, that we had used for at least 15 years. This one seems just as good. We're happy with it.

Do not buy.

  • Summary: This is the worst toaster ever...I'm sorry that I threw out my 8-year-old one that wasn't working that well anymore, because honestly, it did a better job than this thing. It toasts unevenly - from one slice to the next on the same setting (2), you'll get very, very different results, and even on one slice, it will be near-burnt on one end and not even look toasted on the other. I really didn't think I was asking for much.

Takes too long to toast

  • Summary: Takes forever to toast. It does toast evenly but you have to wait an eternity for it to toast a bagel.

Don't blame me, I tried to warn you

  • Summary: Bought this toaster based upon positive reviews but ended up very disappointed. This "toaster" takes forever. We could probably toast four slices in our old two-slot toaster faster than this 4-slot piece of junk. Seriously, I could probably lay bread on the sidewalk on a hot sunny day and get toast faster than this waste of counter space. And after waiting all morning for your toast, what do you get? ...uneven toasting and a look of sadness on your children's faces.

tortoise toaster

David A. Goheen, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: This toaster has a number of good features. It toasts evenly for bread, muffins, bagels, and even toaster waffles. The only reason for 4 stars, it is VERY slow for bagels. Only one side comes on to toast, but it does toast evenly and does not burn the outside. all things considered, we would probably buy this unit again.

  • Summary: While this is not the most expensive toaster available it does a good job for my family. I like the bagel feature particularly useful.

Big Disappointment

itsclose, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Handsome toaster with nice features at a good price, but unfortunately defective. Two elements in the right two slots were not working, thus the bread was only toasted on one side. On a setting of 3 it also turned out very light where it was toasted. The left side was fully working, but the browning seemed uneven at times and the bread was very dried out, again on the 3 setting..After using it only about 12 times, I had to clean and pack it up to return it.

Worst toaster I have ever had

Lisa, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: This toaster is HORRIBLE! It LOOKS good, but it takes FOREVER to toast ANYTHING and it toasts it VERY un-evenly. I am looking for another brand. Will read Consumer Reports before I buy another dud!
