Does not toast well

David Mason, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: This simply does not toast very well. I was very disappointed that this West Bend appliance, despite its nice construction, good design (the controls are right on top) takes a very long time - on the highest setting - to only half way toast whole grain bread, which I must then re-toast.

Great Toaster

IH55T, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: We've had this for about 6 months - no failures yet. Works great, excellent product. The only negative is we can still smell that "new toaster smell" when we use it, even after 6 months. It has faded considerably, and is nearly gone. Even so, we would buy this one again.

a disapointment

N. White, Amazon

  • Summary: While adequate, this toaster is not as good as the one it replaced. It's difficult to get consistent toasting (first slices are too light, additional slices are too dark).

WestBend 78004 Toaster

BobdWilliams, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Do I like toast? You're darn tootin' I do! Who wouldn't love to own this baby? Works fast and has just the right amount of choices to manage all your breading needs & eating habits any time during the day or night. This toaster isn't just for the 'office clones' who have quit smoking.

Dissapointing

Po, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Is there some Federal Law against real toast? I like toast. Not hot bread. On the highest setting, 6, I still have to push the bread down twice before it is "well done".

Make Toast!

J. Gilmartin, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Love this toaster! I like to make 'breakfast' for dinner but hate having to wait for the 'second' round of toast for my eggs. Bought the 4 slice toaster so that everyone gets at least one piece of toast and love the fact that we can have it light or dark and that the conrols are separate.

Don't Buy This Toaster

tmoore0926, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: The toaster emits a terrible odor when used. It smells like an old machine shop where metal is being cut/ground. It is sickening - it permeates the house. We had to open all our windows to breathe. We returned it the next day.

lousy quality

Anonymous, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: Lasted just over a year using it maybe twice a month before the center heating element wire melted. That's really poor even considering the $25 i paid for it. While it was working it performed ok, a tad slow at times.

West Bend 4-Slice Toaster

Delores Gulinski, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a Toaster made in U.S.A. and I know West-Bend had a decent reputation. I was doped by Google. They included another product made by West-Bend and it was made in the U.S.A. I gave the rating a 3 because it does not entirely meet my expectations.

It's okay and I will adjust to it!

Richard/Suzanne T., Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: Was a gift and am not sure about it. It toasts one side of the bread more than the other. Cord is difficult to wrap underneath the toaster. It seems I have to wipe the surface too often and then it tends to streak. The toast does not pop up high enough to reach without tongs.
