Loved it, while it worked
Best Uses
Purchased it as a Christmas gift to myself last year. It was used perhaps twice a month, and before the end of March it was history. Expensive mistake.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Great but hard to keep clean
Fun to use
Lots of Room
Hard to Clean
Best Uses
Love the ease of use. Like pushing a button to toast bread or bagel. Like that it doesn't burn the outside of a bagel. However, very difficult to clean. It has two narrow slits for crumbs to fall through, but most crumbs stick to the sides or lodge on the sides. If you are not a clean toast freak, you will love this toaster. Me, I will likely return.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
