Summary: Like others have said here before me, this toaster worked fine until it didn't. It was only a couple of years old and now the lever will not stay down. We paid a lot for this toaster, hoping it would last a while. Very sad. Looks like some plastic part has broken inside.
Summary: This toasters price is just too high for its lousy performance. The center coils hardly get warm and those are the only ones that heat in the "bagel" setting - leaving you with dry bagels that aren't toasted. On the regular "toast" setting, only the outer side gets toasted.
Summary: We finally put this away due to disappointing results. It is heavy and takes up too much counter space. Toast produced is no better than toast from less expensive brands. Kitchen Aid should stick to making great mixers.
Summary: Fingerprints clean off easily. This looks great on kitchen counters. This performs great like any other toaster would, but I purchased it because I am partial to KitchenAid products. I am very happy with this.
Summary: This has been a darned good toaster. I don't understand everybody's complaints. (except maybe for the short slots) But the handle on the "Easy Lift Lever" is poorly designed and will split in half.
Doesn't toast evenly - but you can fix this if you're "handy".

Summary: This is a nice looking toaster that doesn't toast very well. The cheap Proctor-Silex toaster it replaced would at least toast both sides evenly. It does do a good job with bagels but the toasting is still uneven.

Summary: I purchased this Kitchenaid KMTT200 stainless steel toaster as a replacement for another brand toaster that lasted less than 3 months. Now, less than 2 years later, this one no longer works - the lever will not stay down.
