The toastmaster toaster we bought was advertised as having wide slots so you can toast bagels. Let me say up front, it's not quite wide enough to do that right. If I cut a bagel in half, I have to set each half on the counter and smash it with my hand to flatten it slightly to fit in this thing. That was a disappointment. Once I got over that, though - everything else about it is just fine. The control settings work well, it doesn't jam, it hasn't caught fire - pretty much everything else that I'm looking for in a toaster. The secret thing you need as a toaster accessory for it is the nonstick toaster pouch, so you can warm sandwiches or other skinnyish treats without them dripping into the toaster. Since this does have somewhat fat slots, you could use that to do a sandwich if you use thin sliced bread. Also - a safety tip here - use the pouches for poptarts because sugar is very flammable. Trust me - this is the voice of experience here!
