Very attractive styling. Only problem is that when toasting two slices, the outer ends of the bread do not toast as much as the inner parts, leaving the ends with a lighter toasting. Because it does not toast evenly, I would recommend to a friend with reservations. But I must say, it is attractive on the kitchen counter!
What a great design. And it works! My old toaster would toast unevenly, so if you wanted normal toast, you had to check it often and turn the bread. The Kalorik not only toasts evenly but it allows you to SEE what's going on. Excellent build and style. Lots of controls, like "bagel" which toasts only one side. A toaster is so simple you would think it couldn't be improved upon, but Kalorik did it. Never seen in stores though, so thanks Overstock!
