Summary: Three years ago, I decided to replace my 25 year old toaster oven because it was big, homely, and didn't match all the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. However, it did make excellent toast.
Summary: I love how this toaster sits along the wall on the counter, instead of jutting out into the middle of precious counter space. I especially love the countdown timer - no more jumping when the toast pops up! :)
Summary: We used to have a toaster with long slots but when we moved house we changed to stainless steel appliances. This toaster has slots that are not long enough, especially if you buy the Italian bread. To toast a slice of bread you need to cut the slice in three-it just did not work for us.
Summary: This toaster was ranked fifth by CR and had positive reviews from users, however I do not recommend it unless you like your toast done on one side only. The toaster does a good job on the inside while leaving the outside under toasted.
Summary: Toasts evenly, handles thin or thick slices, option for two-sided toast or one-sided toasting for bagels and English muffins. Very accurate darkness selection, and when finished, lever can lift bread up higher for easy removal of smaller slices.
Summary: So far I've only toasted bread and English muffins. When I plug in the toaster it defaults to a setting of 3 but I set it to 5 because I like things a little darker. Here's what I've found so far: * Toasting is consistent.
Summary: I bought this Krups toaster because my prior Krups toaster lasted through at least 5 years of daily family use until the interior mechanism somehow became bent, causing different sections of the toast to burn. I would have purchased the same model again, except that it had been discontinued.
Summary: I never thought a toaster could be so difficult. The instructions aren't helpful, and my toaster just does not toast on "1" setting as promised. I haven't tried the "3" bagel setting, but the toast does not pop back up as it should.
