I love my toaster, and I'm very picky about my appliances. I originally bought this toaster with a gift card, so I didn't "spend" much on it. Although, I think it's a good toaster for the price. I use it almost every day for bagels, pop-tarts, bread, or whatever. It's very easy to use, and it toasts your food quickly (which is great for me since I'm a college student who's always in a rush). I think it's a good size if you're limited on surface space (I live in a dormitory, so I'm limited on counter/table space.) Also, since a lot of people in this day and age really like stainless-steel, chances are this appliances will work well with the aesthetics of your kitchen.
