Doesn't work well.

  • Summary: Doesn't stay down to toast bread without constant prompting. This replaces another one I had which always worked fine in all operations..

$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.

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.

Great toaster

Brett L, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: I went threw two different other brand toasters that broke less than a month of use. I needed a new toaster so I found the Proctor Silex Cool-Touch Toaster on Amazon. This is a great toaster. It toasts evenly on both sides and is easy to clean. I also like the cancel button feature on this toaster that also acts as power on indicator. It stays lit when on. I like this toaster very much and hope it will last a while.

  • Summary: I like this one. It's cool to the touch and does it's job which is to toast as best as it can. Sometimes unevenly, sometimes very evenly.

Proctor Silex Cool-Touch Toaster works perfectly!

Laurie, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: Toaster arrived quickly, well packaged, and in perfect condition. At first I thought it wasn't working right because the inner heat panel didn't look as "red hot" as the outer one when it was on. However, I have made multiple pieces of toast, and they have all come out perfectly golden on both sides. When lowering the slide button, this makes an inner screen "hug" the bread so it stays relatively perpendicular for even browning.

How Do You Like Your Toast

Huffy, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Read a Consumer's Report on this toaster that rated it comparable to a $100 one but for only $15. Unfortunately, I never found this toaster on sale for $15 (maybe they give Consumer's Reports a deal), regardless, I purchased this at Amazon at less than $30 and it works as it should. I can't give any toaster a (5) star rating as no one makes one that good including the commercial ones. That said, this one is very consistent the way it toasts.
