Rated 3 out of 5 by ERTC A bit pricey with the shipping
My husband wanted a four slice toaster for times when we cook breakfast for more than the two of us. I wasn't sure about getting one because I didn't want to lose any more counter space. This model does not take up much more space than our two-slice toaster.
It has a function for defrost, however, I wouldn't recommend using it. That function half cooks/toasts the piece after defrosting. You would be better off just putting something frozen in and letting it toast at whatever setting you choose.
The ability to toast a different darkness on the two sides of the toaster is nice because my husband likes his toast darker than I do.
With shipping we thought it was a bit pricey, but it does what it needs to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BellaFigura Burns toast on lightest setting
This toaster, for all its settings, burns everything on the lightest setting! What use is a toaster if you have to watch the toast to pop it up before it burns? It does this whether the bread is frozen, room temperature, or whatever. I guess it doesn't burn the bagels on the bagel setting, but we eat other bread than bagels!

At first I was not impressed with this toaster at all. After a month or so of sparse use I'm not going to return it but I don't think it was the best purchase I ever made. The items don't seem to toast evenly. If you have homemade bread and thick slices it either isn't cooked enough or burnt. The slots aren't as wide as my previous toaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by complete7 This product has excellent durability
I decided one day that I wanted to buy myself a GOOD toaster.
I wanted one that looked good, was priced right and would match my other kitchen appliances. Since my toaster arrived I have not been disappointed not one day. I love change in my home and this little appliance is a center point for my family in my kitchen..

The Hamilton Beach Toaster is deifinantly a nice looking sleek chrome toaster. Cooks toast fast. My only complaint is that when you want to pop up your toast when you want to, you can't push up on the black nobs as I think most would. Confusing to have to push the buttom for the setting you have chosen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3littlekids Does a good job
We bought this despite reading mixed reviews. The Bagel setting tends to burn, so we don't use that any more. Otherwise- the product works great! We needed this larger capacity toaster and have not been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JameHopes Nice looking toaster
This toaster is a great addition to my kitchen appliances. Looks nice, toasts well. I don't like the bagel function though - it leaves the outside of the bagel cold. Other than that is has met my expectations.
