The Oster Inspire Long Slot 2-Slice Toaster has to be one of the worst toasters I have ever used in my life. I mainly used this toaster to make toast and to toast my bagels. I would place two pieces of bread in the toaster and let it brown on setting number 3. The bread would brown for a couple of minutes and pop up. When the toast popped up it would still be un-toasted on the top 2 inches of the bread. The rest of the bread would have a nice golden crispy texture. The next time I made toast I decided to lower the settings and let the bread toast longer in hopes it would correct the problem. I let the bread toast for 4 minutes on the lowest setting and the results were somewhat different. The top 2 inches of the bread still didn't toast, but the toasted portion was practically charred. After further examination I noticed that the basket cage that the toast sits in wasn't going down far enough. Despite this inconvenience I continued to use this toaster until the plastic around the bread slots started to melt. I definitely wouldn't recommend the Oster Inspire Long Slot 2-Slice Toaster.
