Summary: We got one for Christmas and are now waiting on a factory replacement from Kitchenaid (we had it too long to return it). I don't hold out much hope for the replacement, since it's the same model. The problems: • toasts slowly, which means that it dries out the bread.
Summary: Not as good as I was hoping for. It toasts quite slowly and unevenly. The levers for pushing the bread down have a very spongy and springy feel that does *NOT* say quality. I'm waiting for this thing to break any day now.... Maybe I should have given it 2 stars.
Summary: Hate .... This Toaster is the worst Toaster I have ever had !!!!! My previous toaster I had for 10 years but needed to upgrade to a 4 slice ( I had been using a 4 slice one that a friend tossed out it was running great even after she owned it for 15 years) so I bought this one.
Very slow and doesn't toast bagels or English muffins very well.

Summary: I bought this toaster to replace an older black plastic Cusinart 4-slice toaster. I had high hopes that this newer model would toast bread, bagels and English muffins well. I agree with many of the other reviews; this is a very slow toaster. Using setting 3, it toasts toast OK.
