Pros:Looks great, works ok. Easy clean finish.

Cons:doesn't toast very evenly.

The Bottom Line: If you have little counterspace, pass on this one.


Like most, I find the design of this toaster very appealing. Even though it takes up more space than a typical 4 slice toaster, you still want to buy it.

It takes up a footprint about 12x12, and is probably 8 inches high.

The body is black, and the front is a faux stainless steel. (easier to keep clean!)

there is a push down handle on each side (each one operates 2 slices at once), and there is one lift button for each 2 slice section in the centre - which I'll get to.

There's a reheat option, and a bagel option (which warms the outside and toasts the inside - though I haven't tried it) There's no 'from frozen' setting though.

The settings range from 1-7, and really, why any toaster goes above 3 is beyond me. You might as well use a blow torch on your bread. In the centre of each dial is a button to stop your toast and have it pop up.

My experience:

Each 2 slice section has it's own crumb tray in the rear. They are small trays and the hole that goes from the slot to the tray isn't the full size of the slot, so even after emptying the tray, there's still crumbs inside.

I've never used the bagel option, but it probably works fine, since my bread is usually only toasted well on one side anyway. It doesn't really toast both sides evenly, nor evenly within each side either. The one edge is always much darker (if not black). I'm afraid to put an 'end slice' in this thing for fear it would go up in flames. I like how wide the slots are. You could probably toast a hamburger bun in it.

It's supposed to be high speed. I think it takes longer than our old toaster.

The lift handles raise your toast up higher so it's easier to get out. And with the design of this toaster at an angle, it's a requirement. It basically makes it as accessible as a regular shaped toaster. The angled design usually makes a corner of my toast stick out the top a bit.

It doesn't have a memory feature like every other toaster I've used. ie your toast pops up, it's not quite dark enough - so you raise the temp up slightly and push the handle back down. Normally a toaster would pop up again shortly after, but this one started at the beginning again and charred the toast. not cool.

Despite all this, it's still the best toaster I've ever had.
