Great toaster for everyday use.

Summary: Just buy this toaster already. If you're like me, you have probably spent more time, than we'd care to admit, reading reviews and researching a toaster. It's a toaster! We're not purchasing a new car or something. Anyway, we were in the market to upgrade from a two slot to four slot.
Summary: It toasts fine. Fast enough with even browning. The problem is fishing the toast out. It does not pop up high enough. Good enough for most bread but bad for English muffins or small size bread. You sometimes have to excavate with a fork to retrieve it.
Summary: As other's had mentioned, I looked at some more of the expensive toasters, but did not get a warm fuzz about spending that much on a toaster that would not get a lot of use. I settled on this one and have been very happy. I love the way you can empty the crumbs from the front trays.
Summary: Well it toasts but it's not wide enough for Dave's Killer Bread. The sides touch the edges. So when I drop the bread down it doesn't drop. I have to push it down. Which is really weird. I had this same toaster in stainless steal and it was large enough. That toaster went kaput so I got this one.
Summary: Just got it in the mail today as a gift for the folks. It worked great. Looks great. I made some toast to check how it cooked on both sides (our toast we used was kind of bent before going in due to how it was stored). It cooked it fine on both sides on the '3' setting.
Summary: We bought this to replace our old 4 slice toaster, which finally died after 10 years. This toaster was great to start, but after 3 months of use about 5 times per week, the heating element is not working.

Summary: After reading dozens of reviews on several websites for toasters ranging in price from $30 to 175, I came to one conclusion: there is no such thing as a five-star toaster. Eventually, every toaster had the same type of complaint: doesn't toast evenly/light enough/dark enough.
Summary: This was not a good purchase. Nothing but trouble. Would toast one side of the bread and the other would be not toasted. It was either not toasted or burnt. Called the company and they said, after much trouble, to cut the plug off and send them a picture of it. We did.
Summary: I returned this toaster the day after I purchased it. The quality of this toaster is horrendous! The base that holds the bread was at 4 different heights, with the worst one being a 1/2 inch off! This makes it hard to retrieve your toast! Also, it did not toast evenly.
