I would not recommend
Easy To Clean
Doesn't Heat Evenly
Imprecise Controls
Best Uses
I bought this because of CR high ratings and good price point; however, besides the toaster not performing well with uneven toasting, the controls are on the side, making it inconvenient to change a setting - one surprise is that after adjusting the setting, it resets to the default for the next toasting, requiring a setting change every time we toast - not convenient.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Worked fine for 1 year, then died
Even Heating
Best Uses
Bought based on CR rating. This thing did its job, it toasted bread and did that reasonably well. After 1 year of use about twice a week, it will not pop up when toast is done and it will not turn off. Happened overnight. Will not buy again. My parents had a toaster that lasted over 30 years. I have owned at least 10 in the same time.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
