Works great!

We love this toaster. It does a great job every time. In our household, this two-slice toaster is all we need. I like that it evenly distributes the heat. Every time. When you adjust the temperature on the heating element, it does adjust accordingly. When you make more than two pieces, the second round of toasting is also consistent. You can trust that this will produce the toasty good results that you set it for which is handy when you have picky kids! Toasting Evenness The bread is evenly toasted. Each piece is evenly toasted. Round two or round three is not more done than expected. Safety I love that this unit cools down pretty fast. This is especially handy when it has to go back in a cupboard pronto. I do not want to let this sit out all the time so when we are done using it, I want it off the counter! It's also great because I do not worry about my kiddos burning themselves in the rush of meal preparation. Design Just what we need-nothing more and nothing less!

Not a good toaster by my standards

2

Before my kids were born and it was just my fiancé and I, we figured we didn't need to have a giant toaster. The black and decker two slice toaster was a little pricey for the size, but small enough to have some counter space. When I was first starting to use it, I noticed it had six browning features which I thought was nice for a small toaster. That's where I ran into my first problem. I was making breakfast and had it set for the medium setting, and it seemed to heat extremely fast and burnt my bagel. Thinking maybe I just didn't do it right and turned it too high, I put it on the low setting, but it came out hot and not toasted. Then my husband tried using toast because he thought maybe the bagel was too big and pushing against the metal inside the toaster, but he had the same results. Not to mention, it made a giant mess of crumbs. It does come with a crumb catching plate under the toaster that is supposed to be removable, but I almost broke it trying to take it out and had little burnt pieces of bread all over my counter. It also claimed to have a frozen setting feature for waffles and other frozen items. It was no better than the toaster itself. Everything that was even closed tasted freezer burnt. I ended up returning it for a much better reliable brand. The only thing I can say that was good was no problem getting my refund back. I think they knew how upset about it I was. Would definitely not recommend.

Great starter toaster

The black and decker two slice toaster is a great first toaster to own. I bought mine a while ago to keep in my guest house and it works great! I like that even though this toaster is only two slice it has a lot of great features. I also like that the toaster slots are nice and wide making it easy to toast begals and English muffins. I like that the settings are so accurate. I have never had burnt toast from this particular toaster. I also like that it was very affordable. I know this would be great for a first time home owner that needs a toaster. Toasting Evenness The toasting evenness is great! I never have burnt spots. Safety I am not aware of any safety features on this toaster. Ease of Cleaning This toaster is a little difficult to clean. Durability My toaster has lasted for a while now and seems durable. I have even dropped it once by accident and it still worked. Design The design is small but looks great on the countertop. I also love the stainless steel design.

I expected a little more from it

It has lasted, but I am just not very satisfied with it's performance. Toasting Evenness It does toast your bread pretty evenly and that is a plus. What I really do not like is the fact that after you toast the first slices of bread, it tends to get a little hot. Then, when you try toasting more bread, it seems to toast it way too much. So, if you plan on toasting several slices, I suggest that you let it cool down a bit before you try toasting more bread. It used to leave my bread overly toasted and it would frustrate me so much. Safety I t is very kid friendly and it does not stay hot to the touch after you toast your bread Ease of Cleaning That is what I disliked the most. It gets stained really easy and it always seemed to look like it was stained. Durability I have had it for a couple years and it is still doing it's job, so it is pretty durable. it has even fallen a couple times and it is still looking pretty new. Design It is a little bulkier than I would prefer, but overall, it is pretty sturdy.

Good toaster

I have been using this toaster for a little over a year now and am satisfied with it, it was a fair price and makes a great piece of toast. The only thing I am uncomfortable with is putting Pop Tarts in this toaster as they tend to get "bendy" after they get hot and the gaps that hold the products in the toaster have sucked in a Pop Tart or two over the year. Toasting Evenness I love the dial that allows me to decided how "toasted" I want my bread. On my old toaster I was constantly popping up and down hoping I could get my toast just right, now with this toaster I know everytime I pop it down it will come up looking exactly how I want it. Safety The plastic dial on the toaster is heat sensitive, it seems to have gotten a melt indent on it while using the electric skillet on the counter close by the toaster. Ease of Cleaning It's easy to clean, it wipes down super easy and doesn't look smudged up or fingerprinted between cleanings either. Design I love the modern design without looking to fancy, it matches everything.

I bought this toaster, Black & Decker's 2 slice toaster T2707 to replace my old toaster that died after a long life. I didn't have much requirement of a toaster for myself except that it toasted bread so this basic toaster seemed like a good enough purchase to meet my needs. It is a basic toaster that makes 2 pieces of toast, I suppose you could also toast bagels if you eat them the slots appear wide enough to hold a bagel. I opted not to read the instructions as the toaster and my needs didn't really require me to do anything other than plug it in and set the temperature so I didn't get burned toast. It also has a temperature dial and some function features. The design of the toaster is nice, the toaster is silver with black trim, though this is more satin finish chrome than shiny stainless steel like my old toaster. It also feels less durable than my old toaster and is very light weight. It has a easy to open tray or crumb catcher I have yet to open or use. Overall it was inexpensive and reliably makes toast.

Great toaster for the price!

I got this toaster as a gift and I couldn't be more pleased with it! I realize that it's not an expensive or fancy model, but it does everything you could as of a basic model, and actually more! I don't mess with the settings too much, but I do use the "Frozen" setting on Level 1/2 several times a week to heat my frozen waffles and I am delighted every morning. Toasting Evenness I've never had a problem with this toaster toasting anything unevenly, it does it just fine for me. If I am ever unhappy with the results, I just tweak the settings. I have always been able to get the results I want by adjusting the settings. Safety I haven't been burned or anything; I have to move the toaster onto the counter top and back under the cabinet when I'm done every time I use it and it seems to cool off pretty quickly. Other than that, with regular use it has not shown any signs of being unusually unsafe. Ease of Cleaning It's as easy as any standard toaster to clean, the exterior is stainless steel and is easy to wipe clean. Durability So far so good! I use it several times a week and due to space shortages, I have to move it up onto the counter top each time and so far I haven't seen any need for concern. It has performed so far so good, going on 2 years this December, so I would have to say it is durable. Design What can I say, its a toaster? But maybe that's the genius in its design - it's designed so well I don't even give it a second thought! It does have nice features of variable levels of toasting as well as few specific toasting functions (Cancel, Frozen, Bagel, and Reheat). It also has slots large enough to accommodate a bagel. So far all of these features have sufficiently addressed all of my toasting needs.

Nifty gadget for toasted goods

I cannot live without a toaster. I use it for breakfast and snacks primarily, and specifically for the use of bagels, bread, pop tarts, and waffles. I find the large slots to be very helpful for extra thick bread (artisan or texas toast for example) and the settings are simple but get the job done. This toaster does a good job with it's "browning" setting, set it in the middle and it comes out toasted perfectly, not underdone nor burned to a crisp. My previous toaster (generic brand) was not accurate at all and it everything set in the middle came out black! I trust Black & Decker brands and this toaster is no exception, reliable and a great plus is the ease of cleaning. I can easily wipe the exterior with a soft cloth, and the crumbs are easy to clean out of the sliding tray on the bottom. No messy crumbs spill out when I move the toaster's location either so that's great too.

Fantastic Toaster. The slots are wide enough to fit most anything you would want to toast and it seems well made. I've only owned it for a few months but have no complaints. It's compact enough that it doesn't take up too much counter space but still gets the job done. Toasting Evenness As long as you adjust the settings accordingly, it's fine. Safety No concerns whatsoever. Ease of Cleaning Crumb tray can be pulled easily. Durability Seems like it will last a while. Design Sleek design helps it fit in any kitchen.

Good toaster for small family

I purchased the toaster not that long ago and have to say it is a good toaster. It worked very well for the food I used in the toaster. I would recommend the toaster to other people but not people who have a large family. I would recommend the 4 piece toaster to be able to cook more faster.
