      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.....

      I bought this to make toast. Guess what? It makes toast.
      I don't like the bell when the toast is done.

      Got this as a replacement toaster, and we're very happy with it. Makes great toast, English muffins, bagels. And we love the lever that you can push up when you have smaller bread items toasting, so you don't have to reach down into the toaster to get them.

      A single 'dark' cycle does not result in toast.

      By 

      from Batavia, IL

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      I love my decades old Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and expected similar effortless quality results. At this premium price I expected more. It does not toast wide pan bread (Pepridge Farm, Brownberry) with a single 'dark' cycle. It requires one cycle at '3' + one cycle at 'dark.' Even then, the bread is very unevenly toasted. I question if Kitchen Aid ever tried to use this toaster model. Try a different brand at this price. I will rate it lowest in all categories. Style, design, ease, innovation mean nothing when it will not do the most basic expected of a toaster.

      Sleek design, innovative new features

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Slice Toaster:

      We were hesitant at first to spend so much on a small kitchen appliance, but we liked the extra feaures of the lift bar and the warming setting, so we gave it a try. Turns out we loved the features and the sleek look so much, that we went back and purchased a second one for our vacation home. Hard to get excited over a toaster, but nice to see innovation, quality and design come together.

      Best toaster that we have ever owned, so far! On the more expensive side, but worth every penny, compared to the cheap plastic made toasters, that break after only a year or two of use! Love the steel construction, and the front controls on this unit! Hopefully, this will be the last toaster that we will ever have to purchase.

      Pleasantly surprised by the elegant attractiveness of the toaster. It gives the appearance of an overdose jewelry box. Quite beautiful atop my counter.
