Rated 5 out of 5 by SophieElle Easy to use, safe to the touch!
I bought this when on sale but I would still highly recommend this toaster for the following reasons: simple to understand, easy to use, and does not get warm on the outside! The heat setting goes all the way up to 7 which I first found odd but then useful when I was toasting denser bread. I love how there are burners on both the inside and outside so it toasts both sides of the bread, meaning you won't have to turn them over and toast a second time around. The gray push down knob and turn-dial do look a little cheap but the saying "you get what you pay for" couldn't be less true here, this toaster is a wonderful buy! I tested the toaster at its hottest and would highly recommend it for families since the outside does not even get warm to the touch, so practical for children!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimjjboogie great product
I got this toaster a few weeks ago and im very happy with it. I have used it everyday and had no problem. Clean up is easy, and the different settings are good. The color matches the rest of our appliances perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SophieElle Great For What I Paid
I bought this toaster when it was on sale, I certainly wouldn't have bought it otherwise. But it is a great basic toaster, I'm surprised to see the dial goes all the way up to 7! The gray part looks cheap but all in all it's a good toaster for what I paid. It's very light weight and I tested the toaster's sides at its hottest point and there wasn't a trace of heat - I would imagine that's great for kids! Would definite recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SONNYM TOASTING BOTH SIDES EVENLY???
HOW HARD CAN IT B??? I REMEMBER TOASTERS WHEN U RAISED & LOWERED THE SIDES & U HAD TO WATCH THEM CONSTANTLY. TOAST 1 SIDE, TAKE IT OUT, TURN, BACK IN & TOAST THE OTHER. BUT THAT WAS IN THE 40'S & U'D THINK THAT 74 YR'S LATER THE 2 SLICE POP UP TOASTER WOULD HAVE ADVANCED TO THE POINT WHERE BOTH SIDES OF A PIECE OF BREAD COULD BE EVENLY TOASTED...NO PROBLEM???
NOT WITH THIS HAMILTON-BEACH MODEL. COME ON! ITS JUST SOME ELECTRIC COILS. I'M TAKEN IT BACK AFTER NEW YEARS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToasterBoaster Simple and easy to use
I am a person who doesn't like to read directions. Just give me the product. The bottons and knobs should be self explanatory. Well this is the one. I was able to take it out of the box. Wipe it down and use it immediately. No rocket scientist needed here. I love it. So easy to use and clean. My toast comes out perfect. It is light and easy to carry from table to counter top. Best toaster I ever had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Madridkid Not very reliable
I've had my Sunbeam toaster just a few months, and can't seem to get it to toast properly. Turn it up high, sometimes it burns, sometimes it just barely toasts. Turn it low, the same thing happens. I toasted a muffin for me on high, then turned it down to low for the next one. I stopped it before it popped up, and the toast was burned! No more Sunbeam products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fuloclothes This product is a great buy for the price.
This simple but well working toaster has been a great buy for me and beneficial to my family. I was looking for something simple, space saving and attractive for my small kitchen.
It toasts bread and bagels, muffins, etc quick and to perfection.
It was worth every penny I paid for it. thanks jc penney.

I am very disappointed with this product-I either get the toast too light or I burn the toast. I cannot set the adjustment -every time I think its right on then the next time I use it I run into the same difficulties. I bought this because I needed a black toaster for my kitchen.
