A simple, very well-performing toaster. I've had it for about 2 weeks and use it almost every day. It's sturdy and stable (I like the squat shape), the slots are wide enough, and the rubberized controls are smart. Toasts evenly and quite quickly. Mine looks slightly different from what the photo shows: mine has a more matte finish and has a black rubber panel on the front surrounding both the lever and the other controls. Neither of these things effect the functionality, which would probably be the same regardless of whether there are some slight cosmetic differences. If you want a very good basic toaster for a good price, this one fits the bill.
