We were searching for a 4-slice stainless steel toaster with long slots and modern styling, not the units with 4 side-by-side slots and retro styling that most stores carry, because we prefer the look and find it more versatile for different sizes of bread. Had never heard of Breville before, but did see the brand named elsewhere as the best 2-slice toaster, so we ordered it. We couldn't be happier with this product. It's quality-made, with sleek modern styling. Some great features are a lift-and-peek option, an indicator showing how much of the selected cycle remains, a digital browning selector and deep (not just wide) slots to fit large slices of rye. My husband, who likes well-browned toast, is pleased that it toasts to the edges of the slice. I love that I can easily get very lightly-toasted bread. And you can even defrost frozen slices before toasting, or rewarm toast that cooled off because the phone rang or the dog had to go out! And there's a special bagel setting, too. Zappos had a better price than other sources.

Blow torch is easier- really! Every toaster, from this one to more expensive ones have elements that do not function. This one is no exception. I did a great deal of research, as have many on the web. One of the the lifting "arms" inside the toaster came out of its channel when toasting a bagel. The elements on that slot do not get hot or red from electricity. As in most internet complaints, one side well done, the other not done. Toaster ovens seem to be a better way to go. I would assume lighting your oven broiler is more costly, but if you watch your toast, both sides will be perfect. Stay away form this product!

Love it! Toasts evenly and plenty of room for long slices of sourdough bread and bagels.

Love the look and style of this toaster. A couple of downsides is the annoying beep when the toast is done (which you can't shut off), and when using artisan type bread, it still doesn't pop up enough with the lift to take it out safely -- I needed to go out to buy wooden tongs. Overall, it does a great job of toasting bread and bagels, and I would recommend this to shoppers.

Great toaster. Once you find the proper toasting level for different types of breads it is fabulous. Takes a little getting used to but it is great.

I was looking for a replacement for my four slot Cuisinart toaster that just never worked properly. I liked the idea of the longer slots for the specialty breads that run a bit larger than the old square sandwich bread I grew up with (and that most toasters seem to be sized for), and I loved that this one was stainless steel. I have had it about two months now, and it is working perfectly so far. I have tried it with a variety of bread types, bagels, and english muffins. Everything comes out perfect. I absolutely love the lift and look feature, too. You can check the progress of toasting without canceling the cycle. Cleaning is easy: exterior gets a damp wipe-down; and crumb tray is easy to remove, too. This fits so well in my kitchen as my appliances are stainless with black trim. I consider this one of my better small appliance purchases.

Powerful toaster. Puts out a lot of heat. Great feature where one can lift the bread to see if it Is done without canceling cycle. Wish the bread could be lifted higher to remove so one does not get burned. Should be wider also for thicker slices.

We don't toast a lot but so far this has been a super toaster. The high settings are way too toasted,but the lower ones work fine. The bagel feature is very clever and I also like being able to take a peek without having to stop the toasting process. Overall a really nice toaster, expensive but good.

This is a good looking toaster which is important to me because I leave it on counter top. The biggest fault I have is that with smaller items such as English muffins and Eggos, you will burn your fingers getting them out. It has a extra lift from the side but it still does not bring the small items high enough.

This is a nice toaster if you want to make toast. Don't try to toast pastries in it for your kids, though, because it will fall through and you'll never get to eat it. It also beeps loudly several times when it’s finished toasting, so don't use it when anyone is asleep either.

Warning: fabulous toaster with incredibly annoying alarm to indicate toast is done (even though you already knew that from the toast-popping-up sound). This alarm is a 5-chime alarm that has been described by other sufferers as an "emergency" noise. Even my microwave only has a 3-chime alarm. My favorite line: "toast is never an emergency." Internet searches reveal instructions to disassemble toaster to remove beeper from circuit board -- thank you fabulous Zappos return policy that I don't have to go there. [NB fellow Zappos fans: from the serial number on the toaster, Breville custimer support let me know that the toaster was manufactured recently. Always the freshest product from Zappos!] I love Breville and my excellent variable temp kettle has a perfectly lovely chime. Don't know what happened.

Brands I'd also recommend: Breville -- other products excellent

This made a great gift for the folks who like to toast Raymond's sour dough bread slices. For 10 years or more they have had to toast one end of each slice then flip it over to toast the other. So, it won't get used as a 4-slice toaster in that family, but it is a dream-design come true for them to fit their whole slice of bread at once! We all find the alert beep to be extraneous, but this is still the best toaster that we've ever had. We've had ours for at least a year and the digital setting is really nice to see the toasting progression. Our last toaster was inconsistent, not this one! Love it. Signed toast-lover.

I got tired of folded bread because it wouldn't fit in the toaster then the cheaper toasters were so uneven! This one's been wonderful - beautiful toast every time and (weirdly) I love the plug!

If you want the best flipping toaster on earth, buy this. I'm not kidding. I think this was used by the gods and it wasn't originally meant for mortal man. But holy smokes, seriously? You won't find a better evenly toasting and amazing toaster (have to buy for the lift-and-look feature).

Brands I'd also recommend: Cuisinart

Beautiful toaster. Great Zappos service. (Plug it into a power strip so you can disable the always-on LEDs.)
