**THE HAIER TST850DS TOASTER, IS BEST TOASTER I CAN REMEMBER HAVING! ** There is SUCH a difference in a GOOD toaster & an average one. I would say most are average, & this one is **awesome**! The bagel setting allows you to toast just one side of the bagel. There is also a defrost & cancel option. It's die cast alluminum & pretty retro looking, so I don't mind it being "visible" in my kitchen. A little chunkier than most toasters. Though the sides stay cool, the top does get very hot, so you have to watch that. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is, it just comes in a 2 slice model & I'd like a 4 slice. Having said that, it toast pretty quick too. I just love it!
