Very happy so far

Summary: I've only had this a few days but I'm very impressed. It toasts evenly , which is the main thing for me. I make a lot of frozen waffles and there's a setting for frozen items, which is one reason I got it.
Summary: I have had this toaster for a few months now, and I am not happy with it. I bought the 4 slice, but the bread in the middle does not heat correctly (at all) so the bread is not even when it pops out.
Summary: Works well. It really does give my toast a pretty even browning on both sides. I would say I am not picky about toast, but our old toaster was not near as good as this one. I have never noticed toast quality before until I got this toaster, so take that for what it is worth.
Summary: Don't buy. The wires on the bottom that goes up and down are so spread out, if you drop bread in, it'll lay cockeyed. You have to straighten it, and if you have something crubmly like poptarts, they'll fall apart.
Summary: I really love this toaster. The frozen toast setting for waffles is perfect. On 3, the bagel setting is perfect. The only minor, minor issue I have is that occasionally the waffles can get a little stuck and don't pop up.
Summary: We've been using this daily, and it works well. It isn't super fancy, but for an inexpensive toaster, it does the trick. It is cool to the touch, and toasts consistently. I wish the slots were a tad bit longer, we buy bread from Panera and some of the big pieces don't fit in it.
Summary: This is a terrible toaster. We've had it less than 6 months and it already isn't working. It never worked very well in the first place. It would either burn or not toast anything, bagels would stay cold in the middle, one side would toast dark, the other wouldn't toast at all.
The best thing about it is that it takes up very ...

Summary: The best thing about it is that it takes up very little space and has wide slots that accommodate both bagels and bread. I like that the tray can be pulled out and cleaned from the side rather than the bottom. Found it a little lacking in weight - seems a bit flimsy.
Summary: I've had this baby for a day now and it's been awesome. It toasted my bread quickly and evenly. I had a trial run at first with the heat at 3 and it slightly burnt my toast. When I turned it down to 2, it worked amazingly. Hopefully this product lasts. But so far so good!
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.
