  • Lovin' My Retro Toaster-Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome

    Nov 29, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Retro chrome, extra wide slots, auto shutoff, "smart" functions
    Cons: You must be careful not to burn yourself on the chrome.

    Summary: Over the years I've been rather embarrassed about the turnover of my small appliances. I'd love to blame the manufacturers, but I have to assume some responsibility also. I should have replaced my last toaster long ago, but I am stubborn so stuck with ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive, strong and reliable.
    Cons: Toasts one side, button release instead of lever release, Hard to keep clean.

    Summary: I bought my Hamilton Beach 22600 2-slice Toaster, about two years ago, from Wal-mart.  I was coned into buying this attractive, reasonable priced toaster, mainly because of it's appearance.I probably only paid $19.99 for the Hamilton Beach ... read more

    Pros: Toasts, if you can get your bread out!
    Cons: Extreme danger:  gets really hot and the short power cord prevents safe positioning.

    Summary: I bought this machine because of its name I expected a quality product even if expensive. In reality, not only I got a cheap piece of junk made in China, but also an hazard to one's and one's family safety!  I can't believe that a company of the ... read more

  • Great Toaster!

    Apr 28, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cool features, never overheats, accurate toasting
    Cons: Stainless steel is not that easy to get clean - look streaky.

    Summary: I bought this toaster about 1 year ago at a discount big box store here in Pittsburgh, Big Lots (not sure if they area national chain). I was moving into a new place and just needed to stock up on cheap basics. Typically, I am a big proponent of the ... read more

    Pros: Great toaster with great features, attractive and easy to use.
    Cons: Gets hot... but come on, it's metal!

    Summary: I bout this toaster to finally replace the one that my husband had continually keep fixing (he is persistent). I am really happy with this toaster. It has an attractive chrome outside which will get hot as it is metal and the booklet even will ... read more

    Pros: Nice styling, useful features.
    Cons: Doesn't work very well.

    Summary: I bought this toaster a little over a year ago. I don't toast things very often, perhaps twice a week, but already the inner elements are dimming, and things now get toasted unevenly. I must admit I bought this thing based on looks and price. It has a ... read more

  • good toaster, silly unnecessary features

    Nov 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: even toasting, big slots, bagel function, looks nice, sounds nice
    Cons: unnecessary features, eject by button rather than lever

    Summary: This toaster works well, but clearly it was designed for people who are easily impressed. You know, the people who think a $7 faux antique picture frame looks nice. The people who pay a premium in boutique stores for imitation shabby chic when they could ... read more

    Pros: Looks cool
    Cons: Darkness/lightness does not work Lever does not work

    Summary: This letter I wrote to HB tells all about this toaster.. I recently remodeled my kitchen. The toaster we owned was very old, so time for a nice new toaster to go with the new kitchen. I purchased a HB toaster 22559, with super bagel toasting ... read more

    Oct 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Safety features are great and it looks stylin.
    Cons: Crumb tray works like all the others.

    Summary: While I donít advocate choosing a toaster based on appearance, that is exactly what we did when we purchased the Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 22559 Toaster a few months ago. Classic, in this instance, refers to the fact that the outside resembles toaster ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice and easy slide out tray for cleaning.
    Cons: Setting button does not click into place and stay. Burnt Toast all the time!!

    Summary: Another piece of BURNT TOAST!! The setting button is a bad design. Wish it clicked into place and stayed but it is designed to move freely which means it is always getting moved without knowing. I taped the knob at a setting I thought would give us nice ... read more

    Pros: Looks good, wide slots for bagels.
    Cons: It smells bad right out of the box.  You'll have to evacuate the house.

    Summary: So I bought this Hamilton Beach toaster at KMart.  It looked great, loved the chrome finish, wide slots and all of the other features.  I took it out of the box and found the power cable was only about 12 inches long.  After alittle ... read more

    Pros: Easy to clean
    Classic look

    Crumb tray is also a plus.
    Cons: That I didn't buy one years ago  :)

    Pros: Looked like my Grandmother's so I expected it to last as long as hers did!
    Cons: bagel function burnt everything. 2 browning wires stopped working, bread not toasting both sides. GARBAGE!

    Summary: These products are only made to be disposable, so only expect it to work for a short period of time. Not worth fighting with any manufacturer regarding products that used to last for years and now only last for ... read more

  • dangerous failure of toast lifter

    Feb 28, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Toasting is uniform, port to starboard, bow to stern.
    Cons: Unacceptable failure of toast lifter to lift item well above toaster top.

    Summary: The failure to include a useful toast lifter is a major fault. You, and more importantly, your kids will want to stab toasted item with a knife or fork in order to remove it. After manufacturing for 50 years, how could management allow this toaster out ... read more

    Pros: Defrost option, multi setting from light to dark, cancel button, wide slots for bagels
    Cons: Bagels are too short to get out of the slots.

    Summary: This toaster is pretty standard. It has a crumb tray, offers a slot for bagel, you can defrost, or toast. However, when toasting a bagel, the life doesn't bring the bagel high enough up, causing you to either have to wait until the toaster has cooled ... read more

    Pros: Perfectly toasted, evenly done, both sides, every time.
    Cons: Thin pop-tarts might slip a little past the bottom supports.

    Summary: About $28 at Wal-Mart. My wife was reaching for the $7. cheapo Toastmaster because it was so small and space-saving, and what difference does a toaster make, right? Well, it makes a lot of difference. This HB Classic toaster makes evenly toasted bread on ... read more

    Pros: Styling, function
    Cons: Chrome requires polishing to keep the finger prints off

    Pros: It's shiny.
    Cons: It could burn your house down.

    Summary: We've had ours less than a year. By the time the toast pops up, it's not done so we have to pop it down a second time. The problem is it doesn't pop up automatically when you do this, so you have to closely monitor the toast. Well, today we left the ... read more
