Summary: got to say I'm not impressed my Proctor Silex was a better toaster. Not sure why these newer toaster seem to take so long but just toaster takes two to three times longer to make toast later than the old toaster did. If you need something that's fast this is not the toaster.
Summary: Please read the reviews on this product carefully before making a purchase. I did not and purchased this product because it was a Hamilton Beach like my old 16 year old toaster. Each and every complaint that someone has written here, I find to be true while using this product.
Summary: After only two weeks the inside wires in both slots discontinued to heat. In my opinion you should be able to make two slices of toast per day and have it last more than two weeks. We will try something else.
