This toaster works wonderfully! This was a gift to my mother after the toaster she's had for like 8 years started falling apart. The settings work just as you would expect. She has a thing for items with retractable cords so this toaster was right on!
I received this toaster as a gift and set about using it right away. I removed all plastic from the toaster and tried to toast bread. However, there was a horrible odor of burning plastic so I unplugged it right away. I rechecked the toaster as did my family but could not figure out what is causing the smell.
Bought this 4-slice toaster in January and it hasn't even lasted a month. Looks like it has several problems going on - mostly not toasting evenly which means two things: one side only toasts on one side of the bread. The other side toasts darker on the bottom than the top. Very diappointed... Oster has always been the brand to buy.
We have a TSSTTRPMB4 4-Slice Multi-Toaster. I don't know who designed it, but how can a company with over 100 years of experience of making Toasters, make a Toaster that cannot toast bread, frozen waffles, nor bagels properly??? The bottom half of the elements glow, but they don't toast well at all. The upper half of the elements don't toast evenly. So we have to turn the setting down, toast the product, then flip it around, turn the product upside down, then re-toast. REALLY?
Not sure that there was a recall notice on these, but what a piece of junk.
I received my Oster 4-slice Toaster almost two weeks ago as a sample to try. I was so excited bc mine had been slowing going kaput. All of us in the family eat bagels and toast regularly. A nice trusty durable toaster that toasts well and toasts evenly each time are all super essential characteristics in a family toaster. The Oster 4-slice Toaster is all of those things and looks sleek and matches the rest of our appliances as well, bonus. I need appliances that my family and I can rely on daily and so far so good. It did take a few tries to find the perfect number to toast my bagel but now I know, throw it on 2 and walk away, oh and push that awesome bagel button as well. Overall, the Oster 4-slice toaster has my vote all around....now lets just cross our fingers it continues to please us for a while. I so appreciate the opportunity to test this great product.
This toaster has a nice brushed stainless steel - quality look. I love the added frozen feature, it works well with frozen waffles so the middle isn't cold and the outside burned. It has the bagel option as well as a reheat. The toaster feels sturdy for the price. With 7 darkness settings everyone can get their toast the way they want it. I was asked to use the product and write the review.
Superb toaster. Love the easy cleaning, the bagel setting, the "from frozen" setting, the auto width receivers, great dial settings for the level of toasted, and can hardly believe it has a retractable power cord! Definitely a must have!
