Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
I've had a Breville 4 slice toaster for many years that had many of the functions of this model. The Breville died finally with the centre element burning out. Repair was too costly and we found this toaster on Amazon as the major retailers displayed it online but didn't carry it in-store. It is slightly larger but has all the features we are used to. Browning settings are easy to do and the time display is an added bonus that we didn't have on the old Breville. Cooks a great toast with even browning over the whole slice surface. I can recommend this as an everyday breakfast workhorse...
long slots, toast or other items come right up out of the toaster easily. looks good. countdown timer handy, too, at least you know where things are at. a worthwhile buy even for just shy of $100, don't muck around with the other brands (especially the Tefal 4-slot, that thing is poor)
So far we are loving this toaster. Love the countdown feature telling you how long to go until your toast is ready, the feature where you can cook light or dark toast, nice and wide for four pieces of toast at a time
