    Worst Toaster Ever, It doesn't Toast

    This is a very pretty toaster, but out of the 8 toasters I have purchased in the last 3 weeks, this is the worst of the bunch. Why can't they just make a toaster that toasts bread as well as has slots that are long enough for Orowheat bread? This toaster is lightweight, has a sturdy selection knob, the features are easy to read, the cancel button is very clear, the lever to lower the toast is made well, the crumb tray is easy to maneuver, and it has an area beneath the toaster to store the cord, and it cleans up very nice. However, none of these add to a toaster that even at the dark setting on the toaster the toaster doesn't TOAST!!! What a shame. It sure is pretty, but it doesn't do the one thing it is supposed to do - TOAST!!!

    I found this on clearance when at the store and just love it!! It is super deep, which was one thing I really needed in a toaster. It has a lift up lever though in case you make smaller items just raise the lever and it will bring it up to you. It cooks awesome, except for frozen items you will want to turn it up higher to get an even cook. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a good toaster, especially if they need it for bigger items like bagels and larger toast or waffles.

    I bought this toaster with my best buy points. My family didn't understand me purchasing a $50 toaster but this is honestly worth it. It has a defrost button on the toaster so it defrosts while it cooks at the same time. I've always had toaster ovens and cheap toasters. This toaster never burns anything and is really simple to use. If you have a bigger family get the 4 slice toaster.

    The KitchenAid - 2-Slice Extra-Wide-Slot Toaster - Contour Silver met my expectations. It toasts both sides of a slice of bread evenly! The large lighter/darker dial is nice. The bagel setting works well also. Haven't tried the defrost setting yet. (I have never bought frozen waffles, bagels, etc - might have to give them a try.) Haven't needed to try the keep warm setting yet either. It also beeps when the toast is finished and pops up.

    I've owned this toaster for a few months now and you would think a $75 toaster would be much better than my $19 toaster from WallyWorld. It burns one side of the toast and barely browns the other side. I've tried different thicknesses of bread, types of bread, every setting combination possible and no difference. Maybe it's just this one toaster but how much does one need to spend just to get a decent piece of toast?

    After doing a good amount of online research I purchased this KitchenAid toaster as a gift for my sister. She loves it! It not only compliments her SS KA appliances, it’s also well made, has a very substantial feel to it, very good overall design appeal, and, most importantly, toasts bread evenly. Good value. Highly recommended.

    The thermostat on this toaster is substandard. After researching this product online, I found that the thermostat is a repeated concern of many customers over the years. Yet still the thermostat fails to properly toast your bread no matter which setting you choose. It always takes two tries to get the toast even lightly browned.

    A Toaster with all the Great Features

    I was thrilled to find all the features I wanted. Pop out crumb drawer, extra wide slots, arm to raise the smaller items for easy access. The excess cord can be stored beneath the toaster and it doesn't get too hot to touch on the outside when moving back into place on the counter. Yes, it does toast very well, too!

    Toasted Bagel Perfection...

    Have used this attractive unit nearly every morning since purchased a few weeks ago. Has a special "bagel button" that, combined with a setting of "4", ensures an even crispy brown sliced surface and a fluffy interior every time, with no burn of the exterior. Perfect every time - couldn't be happier.

    Really like the 7 levels of toasting to dial in the different types of bread we toast. Style and color goes perfectly with our kitchen. 2 annoying items keep me from giving it 5 stars, the alarm that goes off just before it finishes. Crumb tray takes several tries to get it to stay in.

    After purchasing and returning two other toasters to replace one, I ordered this one based on reviews. The first two had only toasted bread on one side, among other issues. This KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster works exactly as it should, and is easy to clean.

    You can't go wrong with this toaster. Does bagels and bread and has wide openings for all sizes of bagels. Also has a lot of functions like a bagel button and a keep bread warm button which comes in handy when you making other things and your not ready for the toast yet. Keeps is warm for you.

    I am so in love with this toaster. It's very deep so even my waffles get all the way done without sticking out the top. It cooks very nice and evenly. Lots of different settings and even the lever goes up to remove smaller pieces easily. Great buy!

    I would get cheap toasters ($15-25 range) all the time. Who knows how many I went through. This toaster is by far the best toaster ever. Perfect toast every time! Oh and I appreciate the bing it makes once the bread is toasted.

    Hey, it's a toaster. Plugged it in and it worked. Price is right and it looks great. Color is perfect to match the kitchen and other small appliances. Best thing is that it toasts bread. It can even warm bread.

    And although this was the most expensive in Best Buy (The Shop) it has the looks and acts it's part too. Really quick, even toast arrows many types of breads. Love this and it looks good, so glad my old toaster broke!

    The KitchenAid - 2-Slice Extra-Wide-Slot Toaster - Contour Silver is the best toaster I have ever owned. I can set it to the exact degree of "toastiness" I desire. It even beeps when the toast is done.
