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.
I got it during Black Friday for a superb deal. Have been using it for a month and works fine. It does not hold large sized breads so you will have to squeeze them in. Toast is crisp and even.
