Summary: Wife loved it especially because it matches our other KitchenAid products. Toasts evenly and has a "dump" tray used for dumping crumbs. Just pull out the tray and dump. No need to turn your toaster upside down and shaking it. I definitely recommend this toaster or you can upgrade to the digital one.
Summary: This toaster is very poorly constructed. The handles continually break off. New handle replaced under warranty also broke; even with very slight use - toast on weekends only! KitchenAid has obviously sold their once proud name.
Summary: Got this for Christmas... was very excited to have a four slice toaster and this one looked pretty impressive. But... doesn't toast very well. I'll say this: it heats up. That's about the best I can say.
Summary: By far, this is the worst KitchenAid product we've ever purchased. I bought this toaster at a local box store 2 years ago for about $90, this morning it's blowing the circuit to the outlet. I should actually be happy it's no longer working because it didn't make a simple piece of toast correctly.
Summary: We bought this toaster because KitchenAid products are known to be the top of the line for kitchen appliances. This one is not. I doubt we will ever buy another one of their products. It does a lousy job of cooking anything we put in it. It cooks unevenly and takes forever to finish.
