I have enjoyed my Hamilton Beach 24605 Toaster for a couple of years now.
Recommend this product?
This 4 slice toaster is user friendly. The controls are easy to read and the guide for toast darkness is reliable. This toaster has adjustable arms within each slot so bagels, Texas toast and English muffins can toast as simply as a regular slice of bread. I wish the cord was a little longer. It is only about 16 inches long making it impossible to move the toaster around on the counter. The outside of the toaster gets warm but not so hot as to burn. My grandkids use this toaster on a regular basis and have not been hurt by it.
The bottom of the toaster has removable drip pans or crumb catchers that slide out easily. They can be hand washed or put directly into a dishwasher. I usually rinse these pans about once a week to reduce the risk of the crumbs catching fire.
Pop up control
Once the timer is set, it is difficult to eject the toast without a lot of force. I have tried turning the control down, hoping the toast will pop up on its own -without any luck. I have physically had to grab the lever and pull up so as not to burn the toast.
I like my Hamilton Beach toaster. The controls are easy to use and the gauges are reliable. The cord could be a little longer but the cleaning capability makes up for it. The adjustable and automatic guides inside each slot makes toasting a variety of breads enjoyable.
Amount Paid (US$): 23.00
