Somewhat Disappointed

  • Style:

Pros:Its compact size, ease of cleaning, extra lift lever, auto leveling toast slots.

Cons:Uneven toasting, as in, toasted well on one side, over-toasted on the other.

The Bottom Line: I would not recommend this toaster because of the uneven results I have experienced with bread, English muffins, and frozen waffles. I have not tried bagels.


This is my second attempt to review this toaster. I deleted the first one. First of all, it is a basic, two-slice toaster with the ubiquitous wide slots. It has three buttons on top; one is "cancel", one is "defrost", and one is "reheat." They all work. The size is compact and nice for my small apartment kitchen. Mine is black. The cord winds up for storage on the bottom of the toaster. The crumb tray is easy to remove and easy to clean. The price was right at $25.50 at Kohl's. I have yet to find a modern toaster that toasts perfectly on both sides. This one is no exception. I have used it to toast rye bread, whole wheat English muffins and multigrain Eggo waffles. It heats up fast and very hot so I have learned to only use the very low (light) setting. One side of the bread,muffin,waffle toasts perfectly and the other side either burns or doesn't toast at all. The English muffins are not toasted at all, on either side, on the bottom 1/4 of the muffin. It takes two cycles of the defrost and toast to get the waffles toasted. If you set it higher then what you get is burned waffles. It is new. I have had it for a little over two weeks and have used it every day. I will continue to use it but I would not buy it again nor do I recommend it.
