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 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 1 out of 5 by Papa Jimi Product is no5t well designed
I bought one of these toasters, and discovered the mechanism that locks the bread down to toast would not latch. I returned, got another one, and it's the same thing; fooling around with it numerous times before it would catch and be able to turn on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SB78 GREAT TOASTER AT GOOD PRICE
I bought this toaster (without the bagel button) back in 2003 -It just now has to be replaced 10.5 yrs later! My ONLY complaint is that the crumbs get underneath the plastic over the chrome and I'm OCD about that. It is cool to the touch sides though, which is why the plastic comes higher than the chrome. -I want the white one, but wish the brand was still in grey, not red.

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 Pam56 Terrible Toaster
Bought this and now I wish I had not... Many problems. Cord to short... either burns or no toast.. But the worst is trying to get it to TOAST....it just won't stay down. I did use it daily. Now it is in the trash. Easy to clean??? Threw it out before it needed a cleaning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Toasted Hard to use
Have tried to use toaster twice and not happy with it. Have to wait for toaster to cool down before toasting again, and then have to hold handle down for at least five seconds before it will stay down. Cord is too short.

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.
