Comment:
It is expensive but solidly built and easy to understand controls. Indicator lights make it easy to see how the toast is progressing, and the lift & look feature allows for monitoring doneness. With the progress lights, lift & look, motorized lowering and raising of the bread, and gentle chime sound when it's ready, it's actually fun and entertaining to use. And what really matters is that the toast is consistently well done. That said, there are toasters that will produce similar results at half the cost or less.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
