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!
Only after 2 uses; sparks shot out and smoke. It very poor quality . And I expected better quality from Kenmore!
No issues with the mechanics. I think I didn’t pay attention to the limited choices to toast various types of bread. It just needs more heat coils and options.
The toaster is sturdy and well made. It's a toaster, and it toast bread like most other brands. I chose this one given that it looks easy to clean. I had a stainless steal toaster from another company, and it never looked clean. All I have to do is wipe this one down, and looks like new. It's black & grey and very neutral - compliments with my Kenmore appliances.
