Pros:Attractive, front controls, toasts evenly, accurate settings

Cons:toaster quit working after 3 months - TWICE

The Bottom Line: I was very disappointed in the quality and the lack of durability of this toaster.


I purchased this toaster because I liked the stainless steel and black rounded "old fashioned" look.  I also liked the relatively compact size, fit easily on my counter, and the front controls.  At first, the very bright digital light was a bit distracting, but I got used to it after a while.  After 3-4 months, the toaster quit working.  The digital control on the front stopped working as well as the entire toaster.  I contacted  Hamilton Beach and was told to cut off the end of the cord and mail it to them with a $10 money order for shipping.  After 10 days I received a new toaster in the mail from Hamilton Beach.  It is now 4 months later and the second toaster has also quit working -- just like the first toaster.  Upon reading reviews for this toaster at Target.com, I read about 22 reviews.  All but one of the reviews said the same thing -- that their toaster quit working after a few months.  It seems very apparent that there is a design flaw in this toaster and I don't understand why Hamilton Beach has not recalled this model and why it continues to be sold everywhere.  Very disappointed in a brand that I have used for years and thought was trustworthy.
