I actually bought this as a gift for my son. He loves it and said it was great. We tried it out when I was there and it browned both sides evenly. Everything worked good, the knobs, lights, etc. He really likes the look on his counter also. All in All it is a good toaster.
The lever didn't want to stay down and it stopped working after less than a year. My previous Kenmore toaster worked for 12 years without any problem. I can't even return it, because I bought this in the store and I didn't keep the box. I am very disappointed and won't buy or recommend Kenmore again.
amazing quality and works wicked good! the functions are super easy and it takes no time at all to make a bagel or toast!
