Summary: I just replaced my 25 year old trusty toaster with its identical twin, the Oster 6331. It toasts evenly on both sides. The dial for lightness/darkness performs pretty accurately, and is easily adjusted for the dryness of the bread being toasted. The crumb tray is easy to take out, clean, and replace in its slot. And I love being able to toast a frozen slice of bread. Love the cancel feature, too.
Summary: I received this toaster for free from the manufacturer after a Sunbeam toaster I had bought failed in only four months. They offered me a choice of another Sunbeam or an Oster. I selected the Oster and am glad I did. This toaster toasts bread evenly, apparently that is difficult for most toasters. No untasted areas. Both sides of the bread are toasted the same, and completely. Time after time. Also, the dial to control the degree of browness works well.
