Pros:looks nice, cooks bagels well

Cons:poorly designed, defective, short cord, gives off fumes

The Bottom Line: Avoid this toaster.  Don't let it's flashy looks and low price fool you.


From the moment I took this death-machine out of the box and plugged it in, I knew that I'd made an enemy.  I put my two slices of bread in the toaster and black smoke began to rise from it.   I checked to see if perhaps my bread had caught fire- it hadn't.  The toaster just sat there cooking its own insides and quickly the room filled with noxious fumes.  I was sick for the rest of the day.

This toaster claims to be able to cook bagels, poptarts, and- of course- bread.  Well, when it's not emitting smoke or fumes, it is eternally stuck on the bagel button.  Whether the bagel light is on or not, this toaster seems to think that you would like to have a bagel.  I would not like to a have a bagel!  Not all the time anyway!  And since the bagel setting only cooks one side, you must double-toast everything you put in.  That means waiting twice as long for those poptarts, when you're already in a hurry.

Speaking of poptarts, they are just thin enough to fit through the toasting shelf and get themselves burned on to the heating element.  To remove the poptarts at this point requires banging the toaster upside-down against the counter for about five minutes.  Your hands may get covered in lava-hot poptart goo.

The toaster has an extremely short cord.  So you had better have an outlet very close to where you want to keep your toaster. 

The toaster broke completely after 10 days.  It refused to even toast anything after that.  Perhaps, this particular toaster was just possessed by the devil.  Or maybe I have sins that needed to be paid for, but my advice to you is, AVOID THIS TOASTER.
