Bought this as a gift. I didn't expect too much out of it, and turns out it was a really good buy. For the money, this has more than exceeded expectations.
I just bought this toaster about two weeks ago and it's already dead. When I push the lever down , it doesn't click and hold there to heat up my bread anymore.
Even though it works it feels like the toaster is broken since the toast switch doesn't go all the way down. Another poor design is how your heat settings basicallly get taken off everything you want to eject the toast before it's heating time since you have to turn the knob all the way down to eject. I would give this a hard pass and would look for something better.
