Summary: First, there is no such thing as a 5 star toaster. This one does a good job on narrow bread slices and deserves a 4 except that the electric cord is about a foot short and the bread hangs up on the metal lip sometimes.
Summary: Hate this toaster! Even though you can lift the lever for an added boost to remove whatever you are toasting, it's not enough for you to grab the item. Bagels are too thick, English muffins are too short. I'm constantly using a knife or tipping the unit upside down to get my toasted items out.
Summary: FIRST ONE ARRIVED WITH THE RIGHT SIDE SLOTS NOT HOLDING BREAD DOWN.REPLACEMENT WORKS AND TOASTS NICELY BUT THE TOAST DOES NOT POP UP ALL THE WAY.I FIND I HAVE TO STICK A KNIFE INTO THE CRUST TO GET THE HOT TOAST OUT...
Summary: This is a nice looking toaster and seems to work reliably. The only issue I have is that it must get really warm because the toast is pretty dark at 3 and it definitely leaves toaster marks on the toast. Not really a problem but just different than I am used to.
Summary: It does what you'd expect from a $20 appliance. The unintended benefit of this thing is it simply will not burn anything, which is a big plus for me since I like everything lightly-toasted. The biggest pain in the ass is that I almost always have to push the lever down three or four times to catch.
Summary: I spent lots of time reading all these reviews and then finally decided to purchase it. The only thing that made me hesitate in buying it was that people said the bread did not come up high enough to get it out. One lady said she turned her toaster sideways to get it out.
Summary: i was staying at a hotel and got this for use at the hotel only. the toaster does a good job of toasting, but i had problems with the side latch when it it may take me 5 tries before it would stay down.
