    Very overpriced. I would not recommend it at least you need to match with other café appliances. Works the same as other cheaper brands. I did not notice any difference. My previous cheap toaster had a "ding" alarm. This one doesn't have it.

    Works ok, a little challenging to get the toasting at what I like consistently. Like the speed feature. Color is what I have for other appliances but it is expensive for a toaster.

    Uneven toasting but has plenty of quick power

    |
    Posted .

    First off I have the GE Cafe appliance suite in my house so it matches greatly. The brushed stainless matches all the handles and knobs on my appliances and the rose gold colored accents match the bancs each appliance has on one of the handles. The light around the power setting knob gets brighter as you rotate it and is pretty slick. The crumb tray that pops out is pretty handy and convenient. The grippy feet keep it planted wherever you put it. The bagel setting is a plus since those are my favorite. Now what kills this toaster is the uneven heating, the bread doesn't toast evenly. I've tried everything and it just won't toast evenly. As sharp as it looks and feels it just doesn't do what it should do and toast. Their CAFE series large appliances are amazing but this doesn't compare.

      Hi Oldskool, thanks for your review! We're happy to hear that your toaster meshes well with the rest of your kitchen! Sorry to hear about the uneven toasting, we can understand how that would be frustrating. If you're finding that your toast is too light or too dark, check the browning setting selected for toasting. Select a lower setting next time if your toast is too dark and a higher setting if your toast is too light. Also check that the Frozen button is not selected. We hope that this helps and that you're enjoying your Café appliances! Stay safe. -Michael@Cafe cafe_appliances

    retro cool, somewhat big, good toast (Stainless)

    |
    Posted .

    BestBuy doesn't let you give half stars. This is a 3.5 but I am rounding up to 4 just to be fair, as 3 is too low. I also have the Stainless Steel version, not the white version. That won't change the way it toasts! ha! but I do have some observations on the stainless steel finish. First off, the Cafe toaster is large. It sits about 8" tall, which is a good 1/2" higher than my existing toaster. It looks great and the stainless steel finish is not a fingerprint magnet. The rose gold accents look nice, it's definitely a more feminine feeling toaster counterbalanced by the sheer size of the unit. One of the stand out design elements for me was the pop out crumb true. It's a front tray (if controls are on the right) which actually makes it easier to clean and more likely you will clean it regularly. But toasters are for cooking. So how does it stack up? The Cafe Toaster cooks extremely well. There are clamps that hold your toast evenly in the toaster rack so you get perfect all-round toasting. I tested with white bread and a bagel. No issue with either. There is a custom setting for bagels - which is nice. My only issue with the Cafe toaster is that the toast heat setting dial has a white ambient light ring around it, probably from LEDs. The darker your toast, the more white the light ring. When I first plugged it in I thought I had somehow turned on the heat function. It's probably just me but I associate the white light with on and in use. I keep doing double-takes in the kitchen because the light is on and I think someone has left the toaster on. It really is a great toaster. If you have the room on your counter I would get it again - because it looks classy and in stainless steel with the pink almost copper-colored accents, it has a bit of a retro-cool factor. So gives the kitchen some class.

    Beautiful

    Posted .

    This toaster is beautiful... strange to say about a toaster, but true. Mine is a brushed silver with beautiful copper accents. It will be replacing a 4 slice toaster and I was a bit concerned about it doubling the time for our breakfast bagels and English muffins. I took it out of the box and note that it is simple in its elegance. There is the copper slider, a copper knob that sets the light/dark and cancels, and 4 buttons, two on each side of the slider: bagel, express finish, reheat and frozen. There is a side drawer that pops out to empty the crumbs. The cord is pretty long, but comes out under the front of the toaster which is inconvenient. There is a cord wrap guide that allows you to direct the cord to the back but by its design shortens the length of the available cord. The plug, unlike my old toaster, is three prong. I only mention this because I wound up needing a good extension cord to make it work in my spot. (Not generally a good idea to use an extension cord but sometimes necessary, hence “good” extension cord). Once you plug it in, the knob has a light around it. The heating elements hold the bread very firmly ensuring more even toasting. There is a pictograph on the top of the unit that indicates the correct way to position bagels so that the inside is toasted to your desired degree, but the outside stays soft but warm. I love the express function. It solves my biggest worry which was sacrificing time when toasting for two. The express does exactly that, faster toasting. All in all I really like my new toaster. It is beautiful while being very good at its job. Sadly, it is also very expensive. After all it is still just a toaster. If you can afford it and, especially if you have the full suite of the GE cafe appliances you won’t be sorry.

    Excellent wide slot toaster

    |
    Posted .

    I have really appreciated having the Cafe - Specialty 2-Slice Toaster. It has functioned perfectly with every item I have toasted, and it looks very stylish. This toaster comes with 2 wide slots which is very nice for thick items, like bagels or frozen waffles. The controls are all on one end, with a slideout crumb tray that can be utilized from the side. The amount of toasting is controlled by a knob that provides 8 settings, and I found that bread of average thickness can be toasted on 3 while a thicker slice will likely need to set on 4. There are push buttons for power, bagels, frozen items that need thawed, and for Express Finish which will get an item toasted very quickly. The button for Cancel is located on the toasting setting knob. I can confirm that bagels, frozen waffles, thin bread, and thick break all toast perfectly with this toaster. The toasting setting really work too, as I can see a difference with the toasting level between each number. The crumb tray releases with the push of a button and is easy to slide back in. The toaster looks very classy with a matte silver finish and copper accents. It is a modern look, but would fit well into any kitchen style. Overall, this is a great toaster for any item you would like to toast, and a great toaster for any kitchen style.

    Attractive Toaster, Works Well

    |
    Posted .

    This toaster looks great on my counter, stylish and attractive. By going to the Café website, I see it matches their other products, everything from coffee makers to refrigerators and ovens. As far as performance, I don’t see how you can ask more from a toaster. It has all the features you’d expect, a button for “bagels”, “reheat” and “frozen” (if you’ve forgotten to take the bread out of the freezer and must have your toast NOW.) A feature I’ve never seen in a toaster before is “Express Finish.” This toasts your bread much faster than any other toaster I’ve seen. In normal mode, it made the toast the way I like in a little over two minutes. In the “Express” mode, it took only about 55 seconds! Very cool. I also like the very easy to remove crumb tray. It slides right out, just dump the crumbs in the trash and slide it back in. If you have a toaster without this feature, it’s very easy to neglect cleaning it and soon you can have a pile of crumbs at the bottom. Overall, I liked the Café toaster very much. The only negative is its cost. You can get a cheaper toaster at Best Buy for under 40 dollars. It’s up to you whether you’d want to spend this much for a toaster. If you do, you’ll have an attractive appliance on your kitchen counter which works very well.
