Summary: This toasts well, but I have three complaints. The knob that you use to set the lightness/darkness of the toast is very small and black, with a very tiny black raised dot on it. It is very difficult to see what the setting is using that knob.
Summary: This toaster replaced a Proctor Silex which was a piece of junk for the money. Oster's toaster does everything I want and need; specially rising far enough up when it pops so I can grab the toast, etc.
