Pros:Great price for a quality product.  Has wide slots, and lots of settings.

Cons:None found yet.

The Bottom Line: The Oster 6340 Toaster has wide slots, lots of settings, and buttons.  Love the retractable cord.  Also pleasing to the eye.


I don't know why, but in our household we tend to buy cheap toasters. Our last one was a Black & Decker, and lasted over 3 years. It did an okay job, and retailed at around $20, and we picked it up for $16. So I was excited to see the Oster 6340 Toaster, at amazon.com for $18.12. Yes, that is all I paid. I now see the price is $27.02, which is still a good saving, over the $39.99 retail price + sales tax.  We ordered 2 items so got free shipping too.

This is a much heavier, stronger toaster than our last one. I like the design of it, with the silver on both sides, and the black on the narrow sides. The bread carriage lever for the toast is gray, large, and easy to push down. It has 13 color settings, starting at 1, and then dots in between, going up to 7.  These and all the other buttons are in the same light gray color.

There are 6 buttons, which are: cancel, frozen, warm, toast, bagel, and waffle. It has a retractable cord, which is so neat. With all of our toasters before this one, we had a cord that would get in the way. Now we have this one on about a foot's length, and it works out perfect. It has a removal crumb tray, for easy cleaning.

We keep our bread in the freezer, as there are only the two of us, and it would go stale, so we use the frozen button often. We have the control set at 3, and that gives us a medium golden colored toast. There are 2 slots, and both come out the same color.

Len uses the waffle button, as he will eat more at breakfast than I do. It took him a little adjustment to get the color right, but now knows what setting to have it on.  The slots are nice and wide to accommodate them.

Sometimes I am cooking scrambled eggs, or an omelet, and Len will have the toast done before me. This is when the warm button comes in. It saves me having to switch the oven on, which is great, as we live in hot Florida.  All of the function buttons have an indicator light that comes on to confirm what you have selected.  The warm button will work with the bagel, waffle, toast and pastry buttons.

When we first had the toaster, we used the cancel button on several occasions.  Finally we worked out the perfect setting for our toasted food.  This button is great as occasionally one of us will use the toaster, not put the setting back, and the other one will get burnt toast.

We have had the toaster for almost a month now, and am happy with it. For a $40 toaster it does a great job, and we got it for less than half the price.  I think it is sturdy, and a good quality product.

I wipe the toaster down once a week, remove the crumb tray, and shake them out. I always unplug the Oster 6340 toaster before doing this.

In the 8 page user manual, you will find any other information, you may need.  It comes with a limited 1 year warranty.

The Sunbeam consumer service number is 1-800-334-9759, and you can find it at www.oster.com.

I don't think this is quite a 5 star product, so reluctantly give it 4. I wish there was a 4 and a half.  I may even come back in a month or so, and change my rating, after giving it a longer test run.
