I was attracted to this toaster in the store, immediately. It had a very nice style and I loved the red color. After comparing features and prices, I decided that this was the best for the money. I'm glad I chose it, because it's the best toaster I've ever owned. The settings never have to be adjusted for everyday toasting, but the reheat setting is awesome if you forget you had something in there, then go back to warm it up. It's got a four slice capacity, which is very convenient on rushed mornings before school. So many people have commented on how nice looking it is and asked where I found it, how much, etc... Drfinitely happy with the purchase. Toasting Evenness Sometimes pastries are a little unevenly toasted, but the warming option evens it out if set for a few seconds. Safety It's plastic on the outside, so no burns! Ease of Cleaning Crumbs are easily brushed out from the bottom. Design I get compliments on the toaster all the time. I never had a toaster complimented on before this one.
