This toaster is very versatile with its many functions. I use this toaster to toast bagels, waffles, toast, frozen pancakes and garlic bread slices. The toaster has wide 1.5 inch slots to fit thicker foods inside. The toaster has multi toasting functions to toast frozen foods, toast your foods as light or dark as you want. There is a try that catches all of the crumbs from your foods that you toast so it makes cleaning up very simple. The toaster itself has a cool touch exterior so I never have to worry about burning myself. This toaster works very well and I would recommend it to anyone who has a family of 2 or 4. Toasting Evenness The toaster toast everything evenly on both sides. Safety This is a cancel button feature that is on the toaster in case you need to stop the cooking process for whatever reason. Ease of Cleaning This toaster is very easy to clean and comes with a crumb collecting tray. Durability This toaster is very durable and I have not had any problems with it malfunctioning. Design I really like the simple design and easy to use functions.
