This toaster doesn't brown equally on both sides of the brea

The design is satisfactory HOWEVER.... it is frustrating that both sides of the bread are consistently NOT browned equally. Isn't THAT what a toaster is supposed to do is brown the bread on both sides the same amount? - and the one side that does get brown is more brown on 1/2 of that side.When both sides have reached the 'toasted' point, the first side to brown is too brown.We may be returning it to the store soon, after doing some research to find a toaster that does work properly.

Works just like it promises.
Nice basic toaster and I was due for an upgrade. Accommodates wide pieces of bread which others that tried did not. I don't eat bagels so can't include that in this review. The only negative I have is that it is rather large, but I think that is the style now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice Toaster with a Tweak
By Single chef
from Columbia, MO
I bought this model for it's attractive look and the length of the toaster slots. Many of the toasters don't have room to accommodate a normal sized piece of bread. I exchanged it under the warranty for intermittent operation goofs because it burned a piece of brioche bread on the lowest setting. The replacement had a tendency to do uneven toasting, but I discovered that separating the heating wires a little more from the backing made them burn better. Quality control for the wiring could be improved but several toasters I've tried seem to have the same issue. For the price, it should perform a little better than it does.
4 Slice Long Slot Toster
from Corona, CA
I purchased, because our Cursinet (same style as my new one), stop working after 15 years. I used for the first time, others on the family used immediately. I have no complaints, but my husband did, he says at the highest number it doesn't toast as dark as he would like, other than that it's good!!

Makes great toast. Fit all sizes of bread-- and lift up lever allows for easy removal!
from South Dakota
I like that the you can lift the toast up out of the slots with the down lever. Toaster beeps when done.
Kitchenaid can't get toaster right
from New Jersey
Ok, what's the saying fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I just spoke to customer service and explained this is my third try with Kitcheaid toaster. The first one was a heavyweight designer piece that was a really good paper weight but didn't toast, the second the KMT4116CU 4 slice and the third the one Kitchenaid sent as a replacement for the KMT4116cu (the one I'm throwing away now) . I was prompted to write this because over the weekend I stayed at a friends home and their Breville actually toasted break (can you imagine). Don't buy this toaster if you at all want even a little brown on your bread!! As you'll see from my evaluation... looks great but doesn't do the job. This proves you can't tell a book by its cover!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had this toaster for 2 months. I love it.I Especially like the timer that tells you when your toast is done.
Love this toaster, has the large opening for bagels.
from Fresno, CA.
This is the best toaster I have purchased. I love the openings for bagels, the chrome look, I believe it is brushed chrome. It toasts just right with many options. Cannot go wrong with a KitchenAid.

I bought this recently to replace an old appliance that was barely functioning and would only toast one side. I am have been so pleased with this purchase because now I can make toast quickly in the morning and my whole routine is much faster! It also just looks great on the counter; it's so sleek and modern looking! I am very pleased with my purchase - I bought it partially because of the kitchen aid brand, I knew it would be a quality appliance and I am very happy that I bought it!
