Cheap toasters are all alike! You get what you pay for...I think
1 August 2014
Summary: Melted plastic spots appeared I think from the inside! Heard a pop sound and saw the side had a caved in spot that looked like it had been melted. Then it happened again and we threw it out. This was a year after we bought it, so no hope of a refund/replacement. Cheap toasters either last forever or break right away, at least I had one good year with it!
Summary: I bought this toaster in Oct. 2012 and am now replacing it. Two of the 4 slots do not work anymore. It has worked fine until now. And you do have to unplug it if you want to pop the toast up before the cycle ends which is a bit annoying but I got into the habit. I should note that my toaster gets very heavy use.
Summary: the one side works fine, but if you try to use the other side be ready for burnt toast! the timer for the one side, even if u put it at the losest setting will keep going till u lift the handel.
Summary: Our Proctor Silex toaster lasted almost 10 years and then it gave up the ghost. And since it was a great product why go with something else? So of course we bought another. Looks great and works wonderful.
Summary: Ok, ive had it 2 years +/- now, must be set on full dark to toast most things but thats what i do, recently left side wont stay down by itself, i have to stay next to it and hold it down for 4slices at a time, wide slots do most things well, best way to pot up is to unplug as its hard to get finger under button to popup early, no big deal, decent for the price , cord is a bit short and attached closer to front, makes it bit more of a hassle but i live with it, saved fuel...
Summary: This appliance lasted less than 1 year. Even at the lowest setting one side would burn the toast. Even trying to stop it is really hard so that meant having to throw away the toast. Then, the other side would not toast well at the lowest setting. Would not buy this product again.
