    Three's A Charm!

    The first two toasters did not toast bread evenly on each side. The results were almost as if I had pushed the 'BAGEL' button! I returned the 1st toaster to local Best Buy without any problems, and ordered the 2nd. That toaster did slightly better, but I've had much cheaper toasters do a better job. I decided to use the KitchenAid warranty provisions instead of traveling to our local Best Buy store. I called KitchenAid customer service for a replacement which was promptly received. Toaster #2 was returned with the prepaid UPS return label. Finally success! Toaster #3 is a keeper! PRO's: Attractive Design, Motorized Lift works great, KitchenAid Customer Service, Best Buy Customer Service CON's: Took 3 toasters to get one that toasts evenly...poor Quality Control at factory Toasters 1 and 2 would be rated 1 Star because of their performance. If one is fortunate to obtain a properly functioning toaster with the first purchase, I would rate this product with 5 Stars

    Just right

    This toaster fits the right niche for those who not need the features of a high priced toaster (honestly, I don't even know what a $200 toaster does) and those who want features that make the kitchen easier to deal with. This thing makes the most prefect bagel I have ever had. The self centering basket is wonderful for those of us that toast all sorts of different stuff. This is the first toaster I have had that has a countdown timer and beeps when the toast is done. Both those features have proven to be very valuable when plating the perfect breakfast.

    Solid toaster, but worth the price?

    This toaster looks great and works well, with everything you could ever want from a toaster. Crumb tray, bagel/"keep warm"/defrost/reheat settings, 7 levels of heat, mechanized lift (because pushing a lever is so straining on the hands), bright blue LED display with auto dim when not in use, and beeping when the toast has finished. The complaints in regards to the beeping being too loud, is somewhat warranted, but nothing I found to be too concerning. As to what it actually is supposed to do -- toast, well it does that fairly well. Better than any $15 toaster I've ever used, but not by much. More like 3.5 stars but only whole numbers allowed here, so decided to round down.

    SIMPLY THE BEST

    We bought this because our old DeLonghi toaster for which we paid God only knows how much finally became utterly schizophrenic. Having just moved into a new house with all KitchenAid appliances, and seeing the price on this one being as low as it was (one of the cheapest toasters around), we figured what the hay, we'll try it out. It has been nothing short of the most accurate, predictable, and fully-featured toaster we've ever had. The only change I'd make is to get a four-holer, but that's not much of a complaint. This thing is better than awesome sauce! (P.S. I'm writing this review nearly a year after putting it into service - it's still just like the day we bought it!)

    Not what I expected

    Just got this KitchenAid toaster to supplement my Proctor-Silex toaster. I had read great reviews about the kitchenaid toaster so I was excited to try out the new features. I like the bagel setting, but if your making toast, forget about it. I've tried on settings from 2,3 and 4 but the bread toasts on one side and hardly at all on the other side (no, it's not on the bagel setting). Maybe I got a "bad" toaster. It's okay for bagels, but I'll still use my cheapo Proctor-Silex (which toasts evenly) for my toast!

    Seems to work fine with two pieces of bread, but with only one piece it burns one side and barley toasts the other. We tried single slices in both sides of the toaster and there was no difference, and no, we didn't have it on the bagel setting. I ended up taking it back to Best Buy. We're currently using our old Black and Decker again, we have to watch it so that it doesn't occasionally burn the toast, but at least it toasts evenly! Didn't have it long enought to rate the Durability.

    I love this toaster. Love the motorized lift mechanism, the bells that sound when toast is done (never had that before) and everything is toasted to perfection. I retired and like toast most days. I had to play around with level for browning to find the perfect shade, but for me it varies with different breads. I have nothing negative to say about this toaster and I have had plenty of them over the years. I simply love it!!

    We have needed a toaster for awhile. While shopping for a couple of other things noticed this on the shelf and liked the looks. The customer service rep was kind enough to plug it in to see how it looks in action. I find it beautiful, and more important does a great job on toasting! It's very pretty blue display is nice and I like the beep when it is done. Wish I would have bought it sooner.

    I bought this toaster to replace a year old, off branded toaster from walmart that always burnt everything. This toaster is quite expensive, but is built solidly, and seems like it will last a long time. the controls are easy to use, it has several different settings depending on what you want to do, and looks great too. The motorized lift is also pretty cool.

    The toaster is very good. The motorized lift works great and the toast is very consistent. The visible countdown "timer" is accurate and a nice feature that allows you to know when the cycle will complete. Also looks very nice on our counter and matches well with our other appliances.

    This toaster is different than any toaster I've owned. With electronic control and blue led indicator light it is very functional. It does a great uniform job toasting bread and bagels. You can cancel cycle at any time and it gently raises the toast. It is a little pricey.

    I love this toaster... I mean, it just makes great toast! I love the digital settings, and the meter that shows you how much time is left before the toast is done. The electronic raise/lower feature is very cool. Perfect toast every time. Worth the money.

    This KitchenAid Toaster is Awesome. Very consistent from use to use. No more of that jolting clunk, the toast and bagels gently rise up when done. The price was also a good deal, I have seen this same toaster go for as much as $139.00. A great bargain.

    This toaster had such great reviews and my only real complaint is that both sides do not brown evenly. One side browns nicely and the other side browns very little. For the money spent, it should work much better.

    I love this toaster. It is a bit slow, but toasts very evenly and the bagel function is quite nice too. Matches nicely with my new kitchen appliances (went Kitchenaid for the whole kitchen).

    Just a so-so toaster

    It's got some bells and whistles, but it toasts unevenly. The fact that it's not as bad as our old cheap one doesn't make it a good toaster-especially considering the price.

    No problems with the toaster so far, but it takes some experimentation to determine proper settings. I still haven't found the best setting for bagels yet. The LED screen is easy to read.

    This is a great toaster, it does a wonderful job. It makes picking the perfect setting easy but when bread is starting or ending it makes a very loud and annoying beeping sound.

    Expensive and complicated

    The controls are not so user friendly, i would say they are rather complicated and takes time to get used to it. its also a bit expensive comparing to other toasters in the market.
