    Good toaster

    We bought this toaster to match the stainless appliances we bought a few weeks prior. I was usually in the school of "buy the cheapest toaster you can find and, when it dies, buy another one." I had never spent more than $20 on a toaster in my life. My wife talked me into this one even though I really didn't want to spend $50. After all, it's just a toaster. I've been pleasantly surprised with it, though. My wife doesn't like keeping the toaster on the counter all the time, so the retractable power cord is nice for when it is stored in a bottom cabinet. The digital count-down timer is very nice, too, because with cheaper toasters, you never really know how long you have until its done. Using this feature, you can easily multitask and have everything ready at once. Otherwise, it works just as a toaster should. If this one lasts a few years, I'll be happy. I'll probably buy another when this one decides to not work anymore. I would recommend it.

    why not 5 stars

    The only reason I gave this product 4 stars is that when you toast something it doesn't seem to toast the same on both sides. Doesn't which slot you use. One side of the toast comes out probably half the crispness as the side that is perfect. Even adjusting the darkness dial doesn't help the matter. Otherwise I LOVE MY TOASTER. I have always wanted one that had the retractable cord - such a treat. And the appliance doesn't get hot to the touch while I'm using it. My old toaster was a wedding gift in 1969 - yes, that's the correct date. It still works but I thought I deserved some perks at this time: retractable cord, toast bagels, toast something right out of the freezer ..... and that works! And it's so pretty with my new stainless kitchen.

    Retractable Cord is a Plus

    This is an average toaster, but I purchased it because I really like having a retractable cord and it was available at a good price. The cord on this one works well. I also wanted a stainless steel toaster and this one fits that need. However, we have had problems with the toaster mechanism "catching" when you put it down to make toast. Sometimes we have to push it down several times before it catches, especially if we are toasting very thin slices of bread. I do like the removable crumb tray. It is metal, but has a plastic edge so that you always avoid burning your fingers.

    An OK toaster, but a few things bug me

    The Oster toaster gets the job done and has a nifty knob and LCD display. My main complaint is that it doesn't drop down enough to completely toast the entire length of a larger slice of bread. I have to pull the slice out of the toaster, flip it to the other end, and reinsert. The countdown display is a little odd too, going from a numeric value to a countdown display at a certain point in time. Overall this is an OK unit but you might want to shop around for other toasters in this price range and compare functions and performance before buying.

    Countdown to Toast!

    So this wasn't very expensive, it's stylish, but my favorite thing is probably the countdown LEDs on the side. It shows how many minutes are left then counts down from 60 for you. This sounds crazy, I know, but I hate being surprised when toasters pop. I used to stand there and hit the cancel button early so it wouldn't make me jump on my old toaster. Now I KNOW when it's going to go off! Oh, and it toasts evenly. Bread goes in, toast comes out. You can't explain that!

    I like the looks, the timer to know how many minutes or seconds are left for the toast! I like the ability to lift up the toast higher when it's done to retrieve. The only thing that's odd is it seems a little wobbly, its not sitting firm on the counter like the 4 little stands undeneath aren't the same size and they cannot be adjusted to balance the toaster..not a big deal but would have liked be to able to adjust it. It may just be my toaster (its not my counter, the last toaster didn't do this).

    average toaster, works decent

    An average toaster that does an average toasting job. Certainly not a top of the line appliance. One time, toast got stuck by getting out of place in bottom bracket. Toaster seems somewhat light weight and maybe lesser construction materials. not really uniform toasting. When will they make a really good toaster that is easy to use and can toast evenly. Slots only accommodate normal size toast not even any loaf bread slightly longer than normal. Frustrating.

    Gets the job done

    While the toaster is stylish, I should have realized before purchasing that its stainless steel exterior would fingerprint like crazy. A simple wipe down with a damp sponge doesn't help. Also, even though its overall size is fairly large compared to our previous toaster, the slots aren't long enough to accommodate a standard slice of grocery store rye bread; sigh. The digital countdown and retractable cord are nice features.

    Maybe it is the bread we toast, but one side toasts ok, the other side hardly at all. The replacement was the same, and the cord would not retract. Bad design. The digital count down is great, too bad toasting is not. Oster is fantastic. They are sending a replacement, only a different model. Even though it is less expansive, the reviews are very positive. This is a company that stands behind their product.

    I had this model toaster before and lost it in flood so replaced with identical make and model. Love it. Toasts bread and bagels perfectly. Especially like the retractable cord and easy to clean. Although cord does not fully retract so have to play with it several times and push the rest in storage receptacle.

    Does a fairly decent job, but toasting is uneven, both side to side and vertically. Also, doesn't handle larger breads very well. The digital timer is an interesting feature, but is it really necessary? Would rather they(Oster) would spend the timer money on uniform heating filaments. Retract feature on cord is nice, but cord is somewhat short. Seems to be quite overpriced for how it works.

    Super Toaster with the most er

    Hey . . . it toasts toast . . . it does a pretty good job of it too . The controls adjusts a nice blue LED readout of the timer . . . and so it's up to you to decide how toasty you want your breads & it does it . I recommend you check it before toasting to make sure your spouse didn't set you up to burn . . . because it does give you what you choose . And then Have a Great Day .

    I have only used the toaster a hand full of times. So far it does toast the bread they way I like it once you find your number on the dial. I do like having the digital time left on the machine that is new for me. The slots are perfect for a large slice of bread. I don't eat bagels so I can't say how those are. I would buy this toaster again.

    This toaster was such a waste of time. Don't get me wrong i am not a toast fanatic or anything but It does not toast my toast even on the highest setting I have to constantly keep pushing down the trigger to even get it close to what I want which lightly toasted. Maybe I got the bad apple out of the bunch ? But I wouldn't recommend this to anyone ever

    A very good toaster... does its job well. Has a neat little digital timer display which actually comes in handy on occasion. One warning, though: Make sure you run it through one toasting cycle before using (as stated in the manual). It smells bad on that first run, but after that, all is cool. I would consider buying this Oster Toaster again someday.

    This toaster does not toast evenly. One side burns while the other side is like untoasted bread. In addition, it does not even toast evenly on one side. It is also difficult to set toaster control for any consistent toast. Wish I would of never bought this poor quality item. Please do not follow my mistake by buying this item. Thank you.

    This toaster does a good job or toasting bread and bagels. You turn the dial to choose how light or dark you want it and the toaster counts down how long it will take, 1, 2, 3, or 4 minutes. You can cancel the time if you need to and you can press the frozen button, if your bread or pastry is frozen.

    Toasts Evenly

    Posted
    Tofu

    We bought this toaster because it was small and matched our new kitchen. Very pleased with its performance and even browning on both sides of the toast. Did not realize how bad our old toaster was until trying this one. You would think all toasters would toasty evenly, it seems like a simple design application, but you'd be wrong.

    I was very impressed with the features that came with this toaster. The centering feature which was what I was looking for works excellent. Pop tarts are perfectly made and they do not stick to one side or the other. Happy wife means happy life. She likes her pop tarts!! It also wipes down easy and looks great on the counter.

    Love the toaster. My kids love being able to see how much longer they're toast or waffles will be. The timer is a feature I didn't really think I needed but love. The retractable cord is also nice. I have a small kitchen and just wish it was slimmer or smaller due to limited counter space.
