Summary: I love this toaster. Kitchenaid doesn't make them like this anymore. This sleek toaster sits like a Cadillac on my kitchen counter beside my coffeemaker and I am proud of it everytime I enter my kitchen. And of course it toasts evenly and even defrosts frozen pastries too.
Summary: I wanted a high-quality toaster, so I did a bit of research before deciding on KitchenAid. The pink color was another draw, in addition to the brand. The toaster is sturdy, works just as it's supposed to, and is perfect for what I bought it for--toasting things, mainly bagels. I love the bagel setting and the warm setting. This is an excellent product.
