Must have got a bad one

I have an expectation of a toaster: to toast evenly and consistently. This does neither. The bottom front corner will be charred, the upper left corner raw. The first run of toast will be the color selected, the second run will be much more charred on the same setting.<br /> <br />When we first got it, it would emit this horrible burning plastic smell. I had to plug it in outside and continuously make it heat up (no bread) for about a dozen cycles before the smell went away. Not very appetizing.<br /><br />I am not crazy about the levers you push down to start the toast - they have a squishy feel that makes it hard to know when you have fully depressed the lever. Other than those complaints, the toaster is easy to use, and it looks nice. But who cares if it looks nice but can't properly toast bread???

Comment:
Overall, I like this toaster. We have used it almost for a year. Works the same now as it did at first. I hate cords, and this has a retractable cord, love that. For me it browns very well; my daughter likes her toast almost black, and I like mine barely toasted, and it does well on both. Bagels, english muffins, buns are also used in this toaster and it does very well, when they fit! That would be my biggest complaint, slots are a little small, but probably not if you don't use it for odd shaped things. After researching for a nicer-looking toaster, (and that is totally subjective!) I am going to keep this one, it seems they all have drawbacks, and I can live with a little bit of ugly!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This is the best toaster I've had and I have tried many. It toasts evenly and the controls are accurate. I like the pull out trays for cleaning out crumbs. It is somewhat slow but all the other features outweigh this. It is also very good looking.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
