This toaster earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it produced perfectly browned toast more consistently than any model. The Best model toasted bread until it had a crisp exterior and warm chewy interior, perfectly matching all seven browning settings on both sides of the toast, unlike lesser toasters that over- or undercooked bread or failed to toast both sides evenly. The Best Two Slice Toaster has guides that automatically center the bread in front of the heating elements and its 9 1/2" slots—longer than any model tested—accommodate slices of artisanal bread. A bagel function reduces heat on the exterior of the bagel while toasting the interior and the defrost button thaws and toasts pastries or frozen bread, two functions lacking in some competing toasters. Aluminum housing remains cool to the touch. With integrated cord storage and a removable crumb tray. 15 3/4" L x 4 1/2" W x 7" H. (5 1/2 lbs.)
The Best Two Slice Toaster comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return your Hammacher Schlemmer purchase for exchange, credit, or refund.

Disappointed in Toaster
from Cary, Il.
Biggest reason for purchasewas to be able to set toaster and get expected results. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Setting on "2", a lower setting, can produce dark toast or something less, but not consistently.Seems like middle setting of "3" should give a golden toast. Can't consistently get same color oneven lower settings.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fits The Space Just Right
from Palm Springs, CA
I was given a single width, two toast long toaster several decades ago. The poor little thing looks ragged and chipped but the nitch I have available is long and narrow. I have looked for a replacement for many years but couldn't find another until now. My new one is even better. It not only toasts bagels but adjusts the heating for more heat on the cut side. It also clamps the basket to hold the toast or bagel in place. The controls are easy to use. The exterior is non-heating so it is safe to touch even when working. I like the way the toast rolls up instead of popping into the air. The slide out crumb tray is nice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT TOASTING, BUT?
By Frank the Cook
from North Country SDiego
I love the Toaster, but for some Artisan Breads the space is too small to handle 2 slices. Also, can only handle 3 slices of English Muffins (1.5 muffins).

Modest for the cost
from Princeton, NJ
A bit silly to have a motorized bread carrier; needs two passes to properly (but evenly) toast an English muffin.

a great way to toast bakery-bought bread
from Chicago IL
Bakeries make all sizes of loaves. This toaster can toast them all. No longer do we have to cut the ends off the bakery loaves we buy.

Love, love, love this toaster!
By Anita Vacation
from San Diego, Calfornia
I had been looking for a wide-slot toaster for a while when I came across this amazing product. It seemed to check off all the things I was looking for; wide slot, easy to clean and sleek-looking. However, it wasn't until I toasted my first piece of French bread that I truly fell in love with this toaster. It heated/toasted the slice evenly and the controls allowed me to toast the bread to my exact liking; brown and crispy but not overdone. I also like the clean, silent way the bread is automatically slid down into the toaster with a simple touch of a button. It's clearly superior to any other toaster out on the market today. The only thing I don't like, but can live with, is the beeping that occurs when the toast is done. I don't see that necessity of this "alarm" when the toast is done but the superiority of this product makes this a minor grievance. I've already had two of my friends try to "steal" this toaster off my kitchen counter based on its beautiful looks alone. They'll have to pry this toaster out of my cold, dead hands.
By Kitchen Love
Reliable product that does exactly what it should do. The first time it smelled a little new smell, but it went away. Love that all bread types fit into it. Even toasting, and will work well.

It really is the best Toaster
from Asheville, NC
I love the evenness it makes on bagels, toast, Gluten Free bread, and Paleo BreadGreat product
By Tru the sewer
from Baltimore, MD
I use this product in the kitchen to toast bread and bagels.I like the fact that it is thin and doesn't take up a lot of counter space.
Performed as it claimed
from Marietta, GA
Large slot accommodates one oversized slice or two large ones because it also is deep, allowing you to tilt two slices without overlapping them.
