The slots are perfect for bagels, and the dial settings allow you to toast light to more crisper. Although bigger than I thought, therefore using more counter space, it was a good buy!
I purchased this toaster on 11/21 because it had the 100% points back and I'm thankful that I wasn't out any money on it. Honestly, it is very poor quality. From the start, it toasted unevenly to where the bottom was dark and the top was still white. When I began to research the problem, I found that many of the heating elements didn't work. Basically, if It had not been for the 100% back in points, I would have returned immediately. As for apoearance and body, it's your average toaster. I tend to pull mine out only when needed. It's just the internal components that are horrible construction and don't work.
Made very cheaply, will be returning, had no idea it was plastic!
