Shame on Oster

Pros
Attractive
Cons
Doesn't Heat Evenly
Limited Uses
Successive batches burn
Best Uses

Comment:
We bought it as a two-slicer to supplement our large Breville toaster oven and placed it on the side-board next to the breakfast table. It can only be used for one person because subsequent batches always burn. Even for one person, the first batch is uneven; edges may burn or be totally white. And one side has an even centre colour but the other side of the slice is coloured in streaks!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We received this toaster for Christmas to replace the old Oster toaster that did a light toast on one side and a dark toast on the other. This one does the exact same thing but this one adds the excitement of occasionally burning up the toast and setting off the smoke alarm.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I received this toaster as a gift at Christmas and am on my second one as the first only toasted one side of the bread ... or burned one side and toasted the other. The company replaced the first, but the second does pretty much the same thing. I am now looking for a toaster that will toast both sides evenly ... even if I have to make it 'pop' up when it is done which is why I replaced my old one.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
