I'm not the big guy on breakfast, I know everyone says you always have to eat breakfast and its unhealthy not to eat in the morning, but frankly, when i'm tired, and grumpy because my alarm clock got me out of bed at 6 am. I really don't want any food. Yet I could't get around a toaster, if I ever do eat, I eat toast with Nutella (I'm German !) and I want a toast that is always the same, i like it warm and somewhat crunchy but extremely fair in colour, so nothing thats brown.
Recommend this product?
The Look - The toaster looks like a toaster, I don't really pay much attention to it (if I'm not making toast it's in the cupboard) But it does look pretty sleek, I like the glossy black finish which fits very nice into mostly modern kitchens, it also has stainless steel or brushed steel accents which make it a pleasing thing to look at. Wouldn't recommend it if you live in like a rustic house with an old-fashioned kitchen because this thing does look rather modern.
Features - Running around thirty dollars don't expect this toaster to fly you to the moon, this thing is really basic, you have a little turn thingy which you set the level of browning of your toast (I like it around 2) it has a bagel button if you enjoy bagels, it has a cancel button if you are smart enough to let your toast catch fire !! Not much more though, as said, this thing is basic and does what a toaster was designed to do, toast toast.
Build Quality - Unless you are throwing this thing around your house like a madman it shouldn't break, I wouldn't see how you would demolish a toaster anyways, it just stands there and toasts toast, it's not like you are using it to test missiles or anything !
Speed - The 100 watt strength of this toaster makes the toasting process pretty fast which I really like. It is great if you don't have to wait half an eternity for your toast to be finished. It has two defrost settings, bagel and toast, so if you have a frozen bagel, or frozen toast, fear not, this toaster can help you out !
Cleaning- This thing is really easy to clean, it has a crumb tray so your not going to have to wipe crumbs for hours, just take it out, and flip it over your trash can, done.
Overall Thoughts - This thing is an easy to use basic toaster at a rather cheap price. If you are for example in college or rarely eat breakfast/toast this thing is made for you, it is sleek and fits into more modern kitchens. It is handy and is built pretty sturdy so incase you decide to releave your anger on your toaster it should withold your punches.
This hamilton 2-slice toaster is a great product that does one thing, and one thing only, it toasts stuff ... thats what a toaster is for afterall !! :D
