Summary: this product does exactly what it is supposed to do. it toast the bread evenly and for the price it can't be beat. it's attractive for an appliance so it sit on the counter in my kitchen. my only complaint was how long it took to get it. my last order I got in 2 days this one took 10 days and i'm not sure why?
Summary: I brought this toaster for a friend's 61st birthday. He had a toaster that must of been 20 years old. It was a joke about his thrifty nature. Both he and his wife loved the toaster. It matched their kitchen and they thought it was great. Thank-you.
Summary: It does a decent job of making a toast. Pros: cheap, the bread pops up really high. Cons: The toast on one side is darker than the other, it takes time, the light-medium-dark dial doesn't give enough options to get to the perfect toast, white gets dirty easily.
Summary: You put the bread in and push down the handle. It toasts the bread and pops it up. It does not make coffee or scramble eggs...it just toasts the bread. I did not find the sides getting hot enough to burn my hands. If it lasts like my last toaster, which was just like this one, I will have paid $1.00 per year for it, I'm happy.
Summary: Who would have thought the least expensive toaster I'd ever purchased would be the best at its toasting task...
Both sides of my bread come out browned pretty evenly. Yes, the outside of the toaster gets hot, but I'd rather have that than an expensive insulated model that doesn't toast evenly. I also like the fact that the slots in this are wide enough for a bagel.
What a deal!
