This is a very good, 4 slice, toaster overall. Firstly, there is the Bagel setting. This is a button, which when pushed, allowed you to toast bagels, buns and other pieces of food which are wider than sliced bread. This is obviously very useful. Next, the toasting of the bread is very even and this is important so that you don't get some burnt parts and other parts which are barely toasted. Also, there is a button to stop the toasting of the bread immediately, and another button to vary the time of the toasting. These give you complete control over the toasting and are very useful for the user. Another useful aspect is the addition of trays which can be pulled out, which collect crumbs from the bread. These are extremely easy to clean and are a great addition. All toasters should have these crumb trays as it makes cleaning quick and easy. The toaster also looks great, especially in the black colour and is pretty cheap at about $40 these days.
