When my old 4 slice toaster stopped working, I shopped around looking for a new one. I found the Kenmore 4 - slice toaster and was happy with the price which wasn't too expensive but was on the lower cost range for these kind of toasters. I like the style and design of it and it had features comparable to more expensive toasters. This toaster fits every single type of bread that I have used in it without a problem. It also toasts very fast which is great when making breakfast for my large family. Overall, for the price, design and quality I would recommend this toaster to anyone looking for a 4 slice toaster! Toasting Evenness Toasts both sides equally and evenly. Safety Have not had any issues with safety so far! Ease of Cleaning Very simple and easy to clean as many toasters are. Durability Very study design and buttons seem very durable. Design Very stylish looking with the stainless steel look and buttons that many toasters don't have.
