I bought this a few months ago and I use it everyday for my toast, which I eat for breakfast. The bread I use is a bit small so I really love the manual lift, which I've never had in a toaster and always had to use a knife to get the bread out. So this is extremely functional for me. The slots are really wide for any type of bread and there is a bagel button. It also gives off small buzz sound when your toast is done, which is great because I'm often getting ready for work while toasting. I have 2 other KitchenAid appliances that are blue and this red toaster looks great alongside the other 2. It's sleek and easy to use. I just love it.

I bought this toaster because of the color and its ability to accomodate large slices of bread. It is a nice toaster with good weight and appearance. However, it does not toast evenly. Necessary to toast twice to attain the browness that you want. Unfortunately, if the temp is raised, it has a tendency to burn.
This product seems very cheaply made compared to the Kitchenaid toaster we are replacing. The old one is 17 years old. I'll be surprised if this one lasts 17 months. It doesn't toast evenly--one side of the bread is darker. I will likely return it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Wife always wanted a KA toaster so i got it for Christmas this year. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I’ve had this for over a year now and have yet to use any setting higher than two. I’m not sure what you could possibly be toasting on the highest setting, because a plain slice of bread would definitely be burnt by that point. Other than that, it heats evenly, looks good, and the crumb tray is a nice feature. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
got this about a month ago, so far we love it, toast is done to perfection and easy crumb disposal, looking forward to toasting bagels. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
