Hmm...I choose to differ with the other reviews...it's the best toaster I've had in years!

Pros:See list in Review Body.

Cons:The too-short cord
Expensive

The Bottom Line: I think this toaster is outstanding.  My six-months' experience with this toaster model has been a very positive one. 


I am bothered by all of the negative reviews of this toaster.  I have had not one problem with it.  I LOVE it!  I think it does a terrific job toasting everything from bagels to English muffins to regular bread.

I have tried many other brands and styles of toasters.  I have also donated all of those failures to local charities (Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.).  This toaster is a keeper!

Here are some "pros" on this toaster (too wordy for the official "Pros" box):

This toaster does a fairly even (for a toaster!) job of toasting any bread, whether bagel, English muffin, or any kind of bread and doesn't depend upon which side is against the center element or the outside one(s).
This toaster is very attractive in appearance...and the cool blue light of the display area is a classy addition to the looks.
This toaster is very easy to clean and I'm not seeing fingerprints on the stainless steel case.
This toaster is really easy in regulating the various browning levels...but you have to play around with the settings to get the right one for the specific type of bread you are toasting (isn't this normal for any toaster?).
The defrost feature of this toaster actually WORKS!  I've had previous toasters that do not appear to have any functionality per their defrost feature/button.


Per the "cons" of this toaster:

The cord is way too short.
The toaster is very expensive, much more so than many other nice toasters on the market.
