Summary: Magimix see-thru toasters are 1500 watts. Replica toasters are between 900 and 1100 watts. These babies will toast fast. Other low wattage toasters, dry out your bread before they can toast. Worth the money.
Summary: Our previous toaster was a $20 Cuisinart from Macy's that worked well but did not really accept wide toast or bagels. The Magimix is clearly a superior appliance in that regard and it's clear glass front allows you to visualize how the toast is progressing .
Excerpt: This toaster makes great toast but when I toasted an english muffin, it wound up curling because the bottom of the toast rack is wider and doesn't hold smaller bread flat. Not sure how they could make the bottom adjustable but that would make it the best toaster ever!
Excerpt: The Magimix Colored Vision Toaster (red) is a beautiful addition to my kitchen counter space and works perfectly. The red is a deep cranberry color and is a nice compliment to the stainless steel. Toast, bagels and english muffins turn out evenly toasted.
Excerpt: I looked a long time to find a toaster that had some style and would look good on the kitchen counter. This toaster delivers that in spades and looks really cool lit up. Also toasts evenly. The only disappointment is that it has some cheap components.
Excerpt: This toaster is amazing. Perfectly toasted bread every time and I get mesmerized by the windows like a kid in front of the microwave. Luckily I can stand and watch it with out fear of radiation or whatever my mother was afraid of.
