    Toaster from the future.

    This thing is pretty awesome. The closest thing to a complaint I have is that it toasts REALLY well, as in start with the lowest setting until you figure out what you want. We toast our bread on 2 out of 10 and frozen waffles on 3. I cannot imagine what you would be cooking to need 10. Everything is electronic and digital, even the mechanism that raises and lowers the toast. (As in, push the button and it slowly lowers the toast into the toaster, and when it is done it slowly raises it. No springs or levers to push) The construction seems very solid, and it looks great. The kids are calling it Toasterbot. One thing, I rarely read instructions on something as simple as a toaster, and in case you are like me - you want to at least glance through them. You'll need to run it through a couple of cycles empty and it will have a funny electrical smell as it cleans itself. I saw this mentioned in another review, and that is the only reason I didn't freak out and take it right back to the store. The instructions mention this, though. It's normal.

    Toasts Just right

    Never thought I would buy a toaster for $100 but I'm glad I did. This one toasts, reheats, defrosts, does different thicknesses of bread, bagels, muffins, thins, etc. My old toaster would get the thin breads stuck and burn the edges. This one goes automatically up & down, has several doneness settings and cooks evenly all the way around on both sides without burning. I like my toast darker & crispier so my settings are pretty high and it cooks my toast evenly & without burning the edges. My wife is the opposite and she gets hers the way she likes it. The kids like their toaster waffles and bagels too. The slow auto up & down works well. And when you forget you put the toast down & comeback to find it cold you can reheat it without recooking it. Also you can defrost frozen items before you cook it. It has done everything I have asked it to do so far, exceptionally.

    Awesome toaster

    Bought this as a christmas present for my wife because our current toaster was very inconsistent. Right out the box I recommend you run the toaster a few times with nothing in it to get rid of "The new toaster smell". Other than that it has done it's job right the first time with no need to put toast/bagel back in. At the push off a button it automatically lowers the toast and slowly lifts it back up when complete. Toaster has separate bagel function and also a warming feature which is really handy. Our family came over for Christmas breakfast and were really impressed with how well it toasted and it's very nice to look at.

    I mainly bought this toaster because it was stainless steel and I'd slowly changed all of my appliances to stainless, but it is so much more than that. It has several different settings that I can use and it does such a great job of toasting the inside as well as the outside. Some people have complained about the beep at the end of the toasting cycle, but I like that because I can be in the other room and still know when my toast is ready. Plus it's a very sleek looking appliance. I'm very pleased with this purchase so far. I have only had it for a month.

    Not the greatest

    I purchased this toaster after reading the "GREAT REVIEWS", however, i do agree that the looks is great and simple too use, but and a "BIG BUT", unless i am doing something wrong, after toasting up my bagel, it gets cold within a minute. I had previously purchased a black and decker one, which kept any bagel or toast i made, hot or at least warm for a period of time, not just a minute. unfortunately, after a few uses of that one, the lever stopped working, but in general it toasted better than this kitchenaid toaster. I am surprised as kitchenaid has a great many products I own, and not one problem with them... I am not a happy camper with this unit and will be returning it,

    Excellent but for the "BEEP!"

    This is a great toaster, but it has an annoying and loud "BEEP!" at the start and end of any toasting. Sometimes that is a good thing. But sometimes it is very annoying. And it is always too loud (for me). I went so far as to try to take the toaster apart to disconnect the speaker that produces the tone. But to my chagrin, the device is held together with special tamper-resistant security screws that no standard screwdriver or wrench can turn. So I will need to find a special tool online or to go to a locksmith or something. If only it had a volume on/off control for the speaker! Then it would be the best invention since... well, sliced bread.

    Best. Toaster. Ever.

    I never thought I would love a toaster, but I think this is the closest a toaster could ever come to making "oven" toast...it has a keep warm button, a thaw button, and the settings are great. It does take a bit of getting used to figuring out which setting works best for particular types of bread, but great toast. I don't know what the folks who complain about the noise or the wait are talking about...it's worth the wait and the little ding at the end is nothing compared to all the electronic noise in MY house and everywhere else I go. HIGHLY a recommend.

    After all these years of buying toasters. This won wins them all hands down. The best toaster in my lifetime. The toast comes out perfect each time and the outside doesn't get hot to the touch. The push button for the machine is an excellent. This is well worth the price to pay for this toaster. Love it... Extremely happy, way to go KitchenAid

    I was looking for the ultimate toaster, and found this one. Definitely love it, and it is indeed the best toaster ever. Doesn't burn your bread like the other ones, and the beep at the beginning is not as bad as some of the reviews mention. If you are looking for the best toaster, you should go for it.

    Toaster is state of the art, sleep mode activated within a minute of non-use. automatic toaster baskets, and even cook heat makes the slices of toast almost perfect!.....Oh and not heavy at all so you cannot use to protect yourself from an intruder at your residence. A++

    I love this toaster. It's got a digital interface and toasts very evenly through all four slots. My wife loves the individual crumb trays that slide out from the back on each side. We can toast English muffins and bagels at the same time and they both toast perfectly!

    This toaster is a real gem. It replaces a toaster oven which took forever to toast bread, etc. With separate controls for each side, you can toast bread and bagels at one time and gets quick and excellent results. This toaster makes an attractive and very useful addition to my kitchen counter.

    This is a nicely featured toaster and easy to use for lots of different bread types. It is easy to use and has a variety of settings which are easily chosen and indicated. It appears that the heating elements heat unevenly resulting in unevenly toasted results. For the price, I expected better.

    I really like this toaster, it's up to 4 slices and wide-slot as well, very convenient. It also has a very nice design and really like the way to adjust the toasting level. Cleaning it is also very quick and simple. The all metallic look is really awesome.

    I reviewed a lot of toasters before buying this one. I wanted a toaster that didn't feel cheap and plastic. This toaster feels firm and durable. It functions very well. it has a lot of different functions.

    The coolest toaster out there. This toaster is easy to use. It's just one button to push then walk away and it does everything. You just wait for the beep and get your toast.

    Very nice for the price. Pretty trippy. Lowers slow, raises slow. Seperate temperature knobs for each side with plenty of range of darkness. Wide enough slots for most slices of bread/bagel.

    We replaced a 25 year old toaster . We were toasting as if we lived in the Dark Ages. It toasts evenly and smoothly. Automatic up and down with ease. Worth every penny.
