Summary: I researched and researched to find a decent toaster; you know, one that actually toasted bread. The one that I found out was best is no longer made. So, after reading countless reviews I purchased the Hamilton Beach white 4-slice. I have had it for 4 weeks.
Summary: We have a few of these toaster at my office. They seem to be durable because they are heavily used. However they are slow. It takes an eternity to finish and usually needs a second toast. The bagel feature is nice. I, like others, don't like hard bottoms on bagels.
Summary: I like this toaster because it is very attractive and does the job it was designed for which is making toast. It is sleek and looks wonderful in my newly renovated kitchen. I am very pleased that I purchased this great toaster.
Summary: I just recently had to replace my 4 slice toaster and wasn't sure which one to buy. I read the reviews of so many different brands, but I wanted to stick with a brand that I was not only familiar with, but knew had a good reputation.
