Rated 4 out of 5Â by PeaceGranny OK although plastic
My 26 year old toaster one morning just gave up the ghost. I read many reviews and decided on this one. The outside is all plastic, so it will not have a long life. It will show it's age, become scratched, and probably break the first time it falls from the counter. Because of the fragile plastic, it has a protected place in the kitchen, not under the counter like it's predecessor. Part of the throw away society.

This thing is great! I'm a big toast eater, and I hate having to double back to the toaster for my second helping of toast. That's why its such a relief to have the Black & Deckers 4-slice toaster's innovative four-slot design, and the independent controls that allow you a lot more freedom of action. Like to mix it up, with crispy rye but more lightly-toasted wheat toast? Use the Black & Decker 4-slice toaster's independent controls to get a wide range of toast possibilities. Plus, the sturdy design means a lifetime of improved breakfast dining experiences!
For lots of great toast, go B & D 4-slice!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Iris5255 previous toaster wasn't heating well. this toaster is no different. heating is not the greatest. you need to preheat empty toaster prior to use or toast twice before eating being careful to not burn. I'm used to preheating because that's what I was doing prior to this purchase.

I set the shade control the same for both toasting sides. They popped up exactly the the same. I used to say "I've yet to find a toaster that I like" Can't say that anymore!
