    I had it for 7 years

    Looks great, the price is extremely competitive, works great, bought it about 7 years ago, this week the elements finally burned out....we are a family of six with extreme bread eaters/ Let me tell you, we put this baby to the test daily!! You can compare us to the U.S. Marines of toasted bread eaters, we love our bread toasted and this machine was able to take care of us for 7 years more or less and still look great at doing so. Hate to have to buy another one as this one still looks great after so many years! Wish i could just buy new elements to fix this puppy but i'm sure I would have to pay more than what it costs to buy new. The only con I could say is that it is kinda weird toasting bread in that we had to get used to pushing the toasting level "inward" first, then down in order for the bread to toast.

    Family of 5 has had this toaster for YEARS! I just purchased another as one of the 'handles' to push down broke and is a little difficult to use. If it were my choice, I would not purchase another as the heating mechanism is perfectly fine. I am not throwing it out. A son will save as he is soon to move out and the handle does not bother him either but we are outnumbered. REALLY LIKE the one side bagel function. Best Buy is best price with 20% off discount plus, I used Ebates and I will receive 1% back on my purchase. I compared, HomeDepot, hhgregg, Kmart, Walmart.

    Overall, I think this was a great buy. It looks great in my kitchen. I did make a mistake though; all of my other appliances are brushed chrome, this one is not. The kids found it easy to use. They love the cancel button. They do have a difficult time removing pop tarts or toaster strudels. The slots seem a little narrow...or my bagels are just that thick. It toasts nicely and evenly, unlike my last toaster. The functions are simple to understand and use. The only thing that annoys me is the finger prints; but I can live with it, because I didn't spend a fortune....and that feels good!.

    Great toaster

    Reviews indicated this to be one of the better toasters on the market. However, after receiving the first one, 2 of the 8 heating fields did not heat adequately. One side would burn the slice & the other side would barely be toasted. Could not adjust the control to attain even toasting in 2 of the slots. You could see the heat bands in 2 fields glowing very weakly. Took the toaster back to Best Buy & they ordered another one. Have received the 2nd one and it works perfectly. Is stylish & looks great on the counter top.

    Great toaster so far

    This is a good quality toaster that does what it's supposed to do and looks great sitting on my kitchen counter. The bagel button is a great feature in that it toasts only the inside of the bagel so the outside doesn't burn. The only disappointing thing is that it is not recommended for use with toaster pastries. I tried putting a toaster pastry in and the bottom end curled up in the toaster and I had to remove it with a fork and turn the toaster upside down to get all of the pieces out. Other than that, I love the toaster.

    Toasts fine, but could stand a few improvements

    Overall, not a bad toaster so far. However, it could use a few improvements. First, the crumb trays do not catch all the crumbs, so sometimes we find crumbs underneath the toaster. Second, the "lift" feature could stand to "lift" the toasted bread just a little higher. Third, the slots could be a little longer - it fits standard standard white bread, but other breads (like Rye or Country White) either don't fit or are a very tight fit. Other than that - not bad. Seems to toast pretty evenly so far.

    As toasters go this is probably one of the best values out there. It has all the features you could hope to have in just making toast for your morning routine. In comparing MANY toasters they all seem to have one thing in common and that is a little bit of uneven browning, but with a little practice you will find the right settings for all your bagels,toast,and English muffins ,the only complaint I have is what others have said and that the toast,esp. english muffins could pop up a little higher. Small inconvenience for an other excellent toaster.

    Defective x2

    The 1st toaster delivered had 2 faulty slots. The bread would toast on one side and not on the other. Returned to store & they ordered another one plus matched the sale price from the 1st purchase. The 2nd toaster arrived. An improvement as this one only had 1 defective slot. No problem returning it. No, we didn't try for the 3rd ones the charm, we picked a different toaster. I have nothing but praise for the way Best Buy handled the problem but no good words for the toaster.

    Best toaster we have ever had!

    This is the best toaster we have ever had. I like the individual temperature settings. Toast and toaster sandwiches come out perfect every time to the exact desired temperature/brownness. Frozen bagles, etc. defrost and cook perfectly in the defrost setting. We like the we can set the bagel to cook so that it is crunchy on the inside and soft on the outside. Looks great on the counter, works very well, we are very happy with purchase-can not beat it for the money!

    A friend of mine has this model and tel me it's an old workhorse. I've used his long before my purchase and it toasts like a dream. It sure beat the heck out of my old one. Love the auto settings and the LIFT UP feature. I used to stick forks in trying to retrieve breads, muffins and bagels. I'm not a fan of chrome-silver toasters as everything in my kitchen is white, but performance rules. Hence my 4 star review instead of 5. For the money, this is king.

    Impressive Toaster

    This 4 slice toaster is quite good. We love the stainless look of it. The toasting is very consistent. The features are good too as you can do a bagel on the inside only, if you so choose. My one minor issue is that it is not 'easy' to force stop the toasting action. I've owned toasters where that is easy. With this one it is hard to force up the handle. Again, it is a minor complaint. This toaster is a great buy

    Solid Toaster at a Good Price

    It looks nice, the slots are large enough that a bagel fits in nicely and the cancel button is convenient. It delivers on what it says it does. I said it could be heavier, because while it does look heavy duty, it is light. This isn't really an issue, but it could be a let down for someone thinking this is a solid heavy toaster. All said, this is the best 4-slice toaster I have seen at a good price. You won't be disappointed with it.

    Unfortunately, this is going back. Just received the toaster and many of the elements aren't working. There's also something wrong with the right side. Even on the lowest setting the toast burns and takes longer than the left side which is set much higher. Disappointing.

    Not very well made

    The heating elements are not consistent and produced uneven toasting. This problem seems to be true of most toasters available. The heating elements in this toaster were very similar to the ones in a Cuisinart Toaster - which also toasts unevenly: possibly these are all made in the same off-shore factory. Very disappointing.

    Havent' had this toaster 3 months and it broke. I had my other toaster that I replaced this with, that still worked, was just old for over 15years, it was a regular black and decker model. I'm so upset and now can't return it! Should've just kept what I had.

    I am very happy with this purchase. The toaster works great and has more than enough settings to make your toast, bagel, or muffin exactly the way you want it. I just hope it doesn’t come alive with artificial intelligence and take over the world. (Just wanted to see if you were still reading)

    Looks nice and gets the job done. Very shiny stainless steel that doesn't seem to smudge too bad but I don't think it's actually smudge proof. Seems to toast decently but doesn't really raise some toasted items high enough when lifting the levers. It's better than the last junky toaster I had so I'm happy with it.

    With my 3 kids all under 10 years old makes me use this toaster many times everyday. This toaster really works as a champ. It prepares the food quickly and great. When completed it is very easy to remove ready snacks without burning yourself. Only wish is that it could be a little deeper for the bigger slices of waffles.

    Great toaster! Love that it has 4 wide slots to insert thick bagels without it getting stuck in the toaster. Its great for slim english muffins, it has a cool function that allows the toast to literally pop up/out from toaster, to facilitate grasping smaller slices. I love this toaster. I bought another for my mother.

    It’s a nice looking toaster. There was a burning plastic smell when we first used it and it smudges easily but besides that, it’s a good toaster. Slots fit bagels. Fun fact: the level just right of the center is perfect for eggos.
