Seriously, this is the best toaster we've ever purchased, and we've gone through a lot of toasters with 6 kids growing up in our family! This one is sturdy, durable, has some nifty features (for example, you can tell it you're starting with a frozen waffle or bagel, and it adjusts the toasting time accordingly), and it toasts evenly. You can even toast just the insides of a bagel if you like - and my husband likes. This is a step up from the very low priced toasters, and it's well worth the extra money.
This toaster is great for the price. We needed a 4 slice and looked around before finally deciding on this one and it is great. It does toast, pop tarts, bagels, english muffins and frozen foods as well. Everything cooks perfectly as long as it is on the right setting. If you cook a variety of things like we do sometimes we forget to switch the dial back but it is an excellent toaster and a great price. I would definately buy it again.
Real easy to use and clean. Has great looks to fit multiple decors. The cancel feature eliminates trying to yank the slide lever to pop up the food earlier.
This toaster was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate that the sides are cool to the touch since my children love making their own toast. I rated it's durability 4 stars because I am curious to see how the plastic holds up compared to a metal or stainless toaster. For our family, this toaster is perfect!
Have tried two other toasters including a hamilton beach model and this one actually works! Cool touch black outer and has lights to show if buttons are on or off when pressed. The lift is set higher so you can reach bread without burning and the burners nicely toast both sides evenly so far. Both sides work together or independently and the crust trays are in the front so no turning it around to empty them at back. Also cord is long enough.
I have had this toaster for over 8 years now, love it, cool outer so no burns, great control for how "toasty" you want your bread or bagel, easy to clean and very dependable. After 8 years it still looks like new, so easy to keep clean and the stainless steel top does not get brown burn marks like the white tops do. I have recently bought one for my daughter - had to order it on line as my local Walmart did not have one in stock and rather than buy a different brand I waited a week for this one to be delivered to the store. I'm a bit jealous as the new one is modernized and looks great, but will stick with my old one until it packs up then get another for myself.
So happy! I have been shopping for a toaster for literally 6 years and have returned about 5!!!! I refused to pay $100 dollars to buy an appliance that toasted bread. This toaster toastes perfectly and the kids like to clean it by pulling out the little crumb trays on the bottom. I am finally a "happy toaster" in the morning and not stressing that the last waffle in the house will be burnt on one side and raw on the other! :)
I have been looking for a wide slot toaster for toast and bagels for quite a while and now I found it.
After my toaster oven stopped working, I decided to go back to a regular toaster since that is pretty much all I need it for, to toast. This Hamilton Beach was the third toaster (in 2 months) that I tried and it was the winner. It toasts. It is easy to clean. It is lightweight.
We like our toast medium-dark and even on level 5 it toasts to about a medium which we easily remedy by using the frozen cycle. It is probably a good idea that it does not toast too dark since this saves on the burned toast problem and actually makes you watch your toast if you need a second cycle.
The slots are not only wide enough but also long enough to hold the bread I buy at Costco and the bagel feature is great. All-in-all, it does the job I want it to do. Back to basics.
Love this toaster! It's lightweight and attractive, the sides really are "cool touch", and I am a HUGE fan of the Bagel button. This button works great if you just want to toast the insides of your hamburger bun, too. A great item at a good value!
It still amazes me that we can put a man on the moon, but we can't make a toaster to toast bread!
It has to be on the highest setting just to get brown on both sides!
This is my second try and still I am losing the battle! It looks nice though.
for 4 people eating at the same time every one gets their toast on time and toasted just like they prefer, my husband wants only hot bread, Ilike it almost burnt, my son med light brown, my daughter dosent really care!!! Excellent toaster for the price.
Bought this toaster after reading all the reviews, and we are pleased with it. It works well and has unique and helpful settings. One thing I didn't really consider and was surprised by is its size. It's big! But we wanted a four-slice model and this one has nice wide slots so it gets the job done.
I review a lot of things, but I don't think I've ever called something out-right junk. Until now.
We purchased this toaster early 2013. The first toaster would not toast both sides of the bread evenly so we exchanged it for another (we do realize that ALL products can have lemons). Our new toaster arrived 4/2013. For the past 8 months the toaster has been slowly getting more problematic. It does not toast both sides evenly. Even if you don't change anything, the toast is burned one day and not cooked at all the next day. I cannot recommend this toaster.
I have had a couple of Hamilton Beach toasters before so I knew this one was just what I wanted.
The toaster is working just Great. The only thing I would like to see added is unlike the 2 slice toaster I just replaced (also Hamilton Beach) is when the toast pops up you have no extra lift to grab the toast with.. the older one had built in extra 1 inch play area, you lift up the handle and it raised the toast up out of the hot area by about 1 more inch.. Other than that I love this one!
I never thought finding a toaster would be so hard.I started out with an Oster 4 slice,it toasted very uneven-burned one edge and didn't toast the other side.the next one made a noise and toasted both sides on the bagel setting.Then i tried the Hamilton Beach,so far it toasts great,cord length is a bit short but it works for me,the only complaint is it is big!
I had to replace a 20 yr. old 4-slice toaster...what a difference! Really good options on this, You can toast from frozen & the slots are big enough for just about anything. I even toasted hot dog buns.
We needed a toaster that would toast a full slice of bread instead of the bottom half. This one works great and looks so nice on the counter top. The cord is also a little longer than the last one we had, so that is a plus too. We look forward to using it for hamburg buns and bagels too. Great product and not too expensive either.
I had bought this for my better half for Christmas... He loves it. Not having one in the house for some time... this gives him a variety of different breakfast ideas on the run.... Having the bagel size slots, great....I had looked at many different toasters, looking for one that had more black than chrome.. Well, as you see I found just the right one.......
Great toaster we have had for 6 months now and is the best we have purchased.We also bought one for our sons restaurant and it gets a lot of use. If it can stand up to a breakfast restaurant , you can't buy a more durable one!
