This one does a good job on narrow bread slices and deserves a 4 ...

J. Bushnell, Amazon
10 February 2015
  • 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. It looks like the centering wires do not always center It does a better job than the previous one that cost $60. This is a replacement for the same item that worked once and died.

Not worth it

Michelle Goldner, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • 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.

$20 Toaster

Tee "trendonite", Amazon
19 February 2014
  • 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. Also, those must be small-ass bagels in the photograph because I have to damn near hammer the bagel into the slot (and then dig it out) if I try and toast one.

Best Little Toaster I've Ever Had!

Candie, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • 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. Otherwise, people said it toasted nicely. I bought this toaster anyway and I am so glad I did. I laughed when I saw the bread lifter cause so many reviews said they couldn't get the bread out.

Classic example of the state of consumer products today: cheap and just barely acceptable

xgrep "xgrep", Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: I'm not sure it would be possible to make this item more cheaply (and have it work at all). Honestly, very little aside from its appearance recommends it. It does, however, manage to toast bread acceptably, and given how much you can pay for a toaster that doesn't, I guess it's worth its price. If I had to say what made me buy this over the thousands of toasters I couldn't gotten, aside from the very low price, the fact that it has a cancel button clinched it for me.
