      After an unfortunate event with my previous toaster having been beaten to death when it refused to let go of my toast, I was prepared to spend a little more to get a better quality toaster. This toaster was pricey and fancier than any toaster I've ever had but I have to admit I really love it!

      I usually place my toasters with the long side parallel to the wall which means the controls are on the end and you have to bend around to see why the toast is on the torch setting. Having the controls facing you on the long side is really nice. It has 7 settings from reheat to dark, a bagel setting, defrost setting AND a keep warm setting which is great for the times you are cooking eggs and put the toast on but they both don't get done at the same time. This feature will keep your cooked toast or bagel warm for up to 3 minutes without cooking it more. Nice! It also has a cord wrap feature to secure the excess cord on the bottom of the toaster under the feet which keeps it up off the counter top.

      Another unexpected but cool feature is the toast ready tone. When I first heard the tone, I looked around to see what made the noise and then remembered reading about it. I never would have thought I needed a toast ready tone, however, the older I get I can't say how many times I have popped a bagel in the toaster, wandered off to get coffee and discovered at the end of the day that I never ate the bagel and it's still in the toaster. If you've quietly wondered if you're the only one who's done this relax, there can't be just two of us because the toaster has a tone to alert you (and the throngs of others doing the same thing)!

      I like the way the toaster looks, it comes in several colors and it's all metal so it feels like you are definitely getting the quality you are paying for. I recommend it. It's up there with other KitchenAid products I have and love.

      After several years of putting up with cheap, shoddy bargain-basement toasters, I decided it was time to treat ourselves to a nice looking unit from Kitchenaid.
      Unfortunately, i found that beauty (in this case) was skin deep.
      Even on the highest setting "Dark", the bread (previously stored at room temperature) comes out barely warm and certainly not dark.
      On the upside, there is a loud bleep that heralds the delivery of the warmed bread.
      Doh.
      Back to the drawing board.....

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      We had a Kitchenaid toaster that we had for over 10 years and was working fine, but we wanted a red one to match the colors in our kitchen. Very pleased with how this one works, it toasts bread evenly and we like the sound it makes when the toast is ready. Cleaning it is easy. The controls are clear and easy to use. Very pleased with it.

      Husband Loves

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      My husband loves his toast burnt. Yes not my favorite way to have toast but what can I say each to his own. In the past 6 years we have gone thru 4 toasters ranging in prices from $20 to $40. They all have worn out in about a year or two. We bought the large model of this toaster and it is great since the controls work for all levels of toasting and you can also toast large slices of bread. I like the color it matches my kitchen aide mixer and other small appliances. It is not flimsy like other toasters and it is easy to use. We have only had it a few months but we are hoping it will be the last one we have to buy for at least 4 or 5 years.

      It looks terrific, but I have to say that the toast doesn't toast evenly. :-(

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      We've had this toaster for about a month and it works well. Our only issue is the toast pops up too quickly, before it's done .. and yes, we've adjusted the setting to darker but it still does it. So we always have to pop it down twice, and on the second try, we have to stop it mid-way because it will otherwise get too dark (since this is the second "pop"). We like the feature where you can push the toast up higher when it's done, so you don't have to reach down into the toaster with smaller slices of bread.

      This toaster is great! Love the signal it gives when the toast is done. Also love the "keep warm" feature is case you're not quite ready for your toast. Looks great on my countertop too!

      The Third Toaster's The Charm

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      Bought two other toasters from well-known, reputable brands before purchasing this KitchenAid. Those two toasters were returned immediately out-of-the-box due to overall quality / manufacturing defects. Ironically, those two toasters scored much, much higher in that well-known consumer magazine's rankings. Guess I should have gone with the KitchenAid first. I will the next time.

      Above Average Toaster

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      Although we'd only had it for a week, it performs flawlessly. Toast, bagels, and muffins are toasted exactly the same on both sides, something our old toaster could not do. The one feature I like best is the "warning buzzer" sounding off just before your item pops up. Great idea! It toasts evenly over the entire item. I hope it serves us well for a long time.
