We have all kinds of Kitchen Aid products, and previously had a kitchen aid toaster as well. The problem with the previous unit was, it had no clean out tray and was hard to keep clean. This new unit HAS a cleanout tray, thereby making it easy to keep clean. It also has a more precise control for better toasting. Almost all the counter top appliances we have had are Kitchen Aid and for the most part, we have been extremely pleased and happy with the performance and durability of each.

This is the review I hate to write. My counter top appliances are exclusively KitchenAid and all wonderful; except the last update. This was the toaster and had it been the first KitchenAid appliance I'd purchased it would also have been the last. It looks lovely, mechanically works just fine but the toast quality is awful and it is slow. The bottom half of both sides of the slices toasts faster than the top. Unless you turn the bread over half way through you have a choice of half burned and half just right, or, half just right and the top untoasted.

There is also a problem with the consistency. I made four pieces of toast from the same loaf of bread. All the same size, thickness and freshness. The first two slices were lightly toasted on the #5 setting; the second two were burned black. Hadn't changed anything and, as usual, the bread was unevenly toasted.

I do like the feature that allows bagels to be toasted more on the inside face than the outside though so I gave it two stars instead of one.

Sorry KitchenAid, this toaster is a failure and I am stuck with.

              Have had this toaster a few months now and it has surpassed any other toaster we have had in ease of use and controls and being able to digitally set the toast level and digital bars count down so you know where you are in the toasting process. Very nice and very good looking. Glad we bought it, plus it matches our kitchenaid 14 cup kitchen coffee make.

                    After owning many less expensive models that didn't last more than 2 years, the KitchenAid Toaster is a dream. Love the functions and style.

                          Over the years, I've purchased KitchenAid products in red. I have been waiting for several years to complete my purchase of this Digital Display toaster. I got a birthday gift from my sister in the form of enough money to purchase this toaster and I am thrilled with it.

                                I am using this toaster for the first time and it smells like I'm making creepy crawlers (melted plastic bugs). Is this actually not bad for me to inhale or to eat toast that was cooked in it?

                                It looks cute on the counter...

                                      I am enjoying the toaster I bought last month. It looks beautiful on the counter. There have been no problems. I will point out that for us any setting higher than a 2 is too dark. A 4 makes the toast lightly burnt. The beep when the toast is done is loud but not problematic. I have also noticed thin white lines vertically on the toast but they don't seem to interfere with the overall enjoyment or quality.

                                            We have had many toasters but this toaster is the best. It toasts evenly, lifts up so you can get the toast. The toaster looks very nice, sturdy, easy to clean. Glad we bought this KitchenAid. We have many KitchenAid appliance & would love to get the food processor next! Do not hesitate to buy KitchenAid, they stand behind their products!!

                                                  The plastic lever on this toaster is very flimsy and breaks easily. The toaster itself is very good (even toasting, etc.) but it is hampered by a poor lever design. For the price, KitchenAid has a poor design on its hands.

                                                        Easy to use: press-down the lever, select appropriate settings per type of item and degree of toasting preferred, check the digital readout for affirmation and note live bar graph counting down the time remaining, a little single ding alerts you to when the toasting is done. The cancel button can be used when unsure about the correct setting by monitoring (by sight) the coloration while toasting. When done toasting, cleanup is easy with slide-out tray.

                                                        Versatile: Besides regular sliced bread (in the default setting) it can handle bagels, English muffins and all the above in a frozen state. By selecting the appropriate button. The reheat button is effective for warming up previously toasted items in less than a minute.

                                                        The toaster is well made: The exterior is made from stainless steel and hard enamel painted steel panels. The visible interior mechanisms are all stainless steel.Overall mechanical functions are smooth and quite. No rattling or sloppiness in the fit-up.

                                                        Performance: So far it has performed flawlessly as I expected.

                                                        Comment: Most of the negative reviews I've read seem to be the result of some users not reading or comprehending the instruction manual. For example the one-sided burning of sliced bread will occur if performed in the bagel mode instead of the default mode, and from a couple feet away, I didn't find the single ding alert sound at all annoying but instead, rather pleasant.
