The T-Fal-2 slice toaster is engineered very nice. It has features which had a lot of thought. The release button used for stopping the toasting is great. I also like the way the mechanism comes around the bread as it is toasted. Making it stay in place. Ours is the black not the stainless steel a very good looking item. Also, with the toaster pointed at you instead of the customary side-by-side makes a lot more sense. The price was very competitive also.
