This toaster is a marvel. It not only is beautiful but it toasts frozen bread to perfection. The crumb tray is so easy to clean. I just pull it out and shake it off after every use so crumbs never build up. Other toasters I have had in the past made cleaning the crumb tray difficult because you had to turn the toaster upside down to clean it out. I was disappointed that the only toaster I could find made in America was a camping toaster. This is the most I have ever paid for a toaster so I hope it lasts a very long time.
