I got this for Christmas after expressing my desire for a four slice toaster. I quickly checked the reviews on epinions and then decided to try it out myself because they seems somewhat contradictory. I agree with one reviewer that some of the reviews seem like they were written by the manufacturer.

The first thing I noticed once out of the box was that it looks nicer than it does on the box picture. The second thing was the smell, which got almost unbearable when I turned it on. Unlike one of the other reviews, I noted that the elements do NOT all turn on evenly. The inside ones are noticeably less bright than the outside ones.
The results were confirmed the observations - one side of the toast was darker than the otherside, one of my pet peeves about toasters. And, even though it was set on 2.5 (out of six) I had to pop the toast to avoid it burning black.
I think we will try a different toaster, one will better reviews.
Amount Paid (US$): 60
