Best Uses
This toaster stopped staying down to toast. It has served me well for several years. However, I have loved this toaster. It has done a great job with great features. I'm going to look but likely will buy same toaster. Today I held the lever down to toast my bread and it still did a great job of toasting.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Why open the box
Best Uses
The highest rated toaster received a 77 score. This one received a 74, so I thought it would be good and purchased one yesterday. After reading these reviews, I am scared to open the box and am returning it today. I appreciate Consumer Reports reviews, but wonder how the appliance achieved a 74 score in the first place.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
