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!
Mine broke int he first two weeks, Overstock was very good about shipping me out another one to replace it. It works good, toast very nicely and quick, but it is made cheaply and now after 1.5 years, it is broke again. They toaster leaver will not stay down, so the only way to make toast is to hold it down, not very safe. The first time it broke, the issue was in the lever also, apparently a design flaw. Just ordered a new Warn Toaster, hopping it last a little longer than this one.
what you see is what you get and that is the point isn't it??? being able to see what is going on allows you to adjust, change, stop, restart and so on and so on. by the way this machine works just as good as it claims. enjoy your toast...no but really ENJOY!
Meets all my needs. Easy to clean with the pull-out tray and window access. Seeing the toast is a great advantage in judging the setting. The wide and long slot works for most applications. Results are excellent in toast uniformity and reproducibility. The best toaster I've used by far. The free shipping time beats most other distributors.
