I was looking for a different looking toaster for my kitchen when I found this. I love it! It looks great on my counter. And there is a bonus: it works great!

First of the all the toasting mechanism is too short and doesn't fully toast the top of your bread. Secondly, our toaster's switch stopped working properly after 5 months, now we have to press the switch down at least 10 times before it will turn on.

The toaster was exactly the color shown above. It came in perfect condition. I use the toaster mostly for bagels and I don't use the contraption on top because I like both sides of my bagel toasted. It's a rather large toaster, but it works really well and I would recommend to anyone.

I love it. The color, style, function. It does a great job and it's not stainless steel for a change. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

We are very pleased with this toaster. We have had for about two months, and it works great. We have used it to toast bread and English muffins with no issues. In addition, it looks great. It is a little taller, but it is not as wide as our old one. It seems to have an overall smaller footprint. It is easy to keep clean. The controls, crumb tray, and cord storage are well thought out. We really appreciate the overall design and function of this toaster.

I received my toaster and was completely satisfied with it. It is a very pretty color of green and works wonderfully.

This is a good basic toaster with a nice warming rack feature that I've not used yet. And I love that it's not silver or black. Great brand, it works great!

Attractive, unusual toaster. In winter dishes from our cupboards are too cold for a hot meal; the flip up warmer on this toaster is now what we use to heat plates rather than running hot water over them. It does a good job of even toasting without bread getting stuck in toaster. Prompt delivery.

I bought the Bodum Toaster and love it! My problem now is Bodum has changed the Shade of their green. It is much brighter and has a touch of yellow to it. The same way with their knives. And in the knife line they decided to add a hole in the handle. I had ordered all of their knifes except two which were out of stock and when I did order the greens did not match and they now had adapted a hole to the handle. I am really disappointed in the new green color. My question is why? The old green was really pretty.

The design is simple but great. It makes good toast and in the green color of our toaster fits beautifully with our kitchen decor.

A toaster is a toaster. They're all pretty much the same. The Bistro is no better or worse than any of the other 400 toasters out there. This one has a little rack that lets you warm something above the heating element, so I guess that's nice (although I always forget about it.) Honestly, I bought this for its looks...if it's going to sit on my counter 24/7 I want it to at least look good, and it does. I appreciate its non-shininess.

Vibrant and trendy, lights up out new smaller kitchen. Only 4* because not deep enough to do most of our bread types!

This is a wonderful toaster. It toasts evenly. The exterior is wonderful and is does have pop-up arms in case you want to heat something without inserting it in the toaster. You need to keep in mind it is not sized for bagels, etc. Also is the ability to get the dial turned to the darkness you want takes practice. Those 2 items are why I gave this rating a 4 overall. The best part is when toasting is done some of the smaller items pop up into the air when the toast cycle is complete. You can catch them then. It is actually pretty fun!

Need a toaster that can toast English muffins without having to do them twice. This unit fails that need. Look great. Returning to store. Price on this site is very high!

This is probably one of the worst toasters that I have ever owned. It toasts wildly unevenly, depending on its mood. One side is burned, one side is barely browned. Or one slice is charred, the other slice is perfect. But by far the most annoying feature of this thing is the pop-up mechanism. The toast pops up so high it actually flies out of the slot and lands somewhere on my counter and in one case, on the floor. How hard is it to make a toaster, really? I have bought cheap toasters that worked better than this thing.

Loved this different style and color of toaster as soon as I saw online bought it because knew Zappos shipping was fast and my son can't do with out is waffles in the morning but right away notice it only toast on one side, but loved it so much just thought it just needed to be used for a couple of days and it would work better but didn't so returning! Very disappointed!

This toaster didn't work properly from day 1. I had to keep pushing the lever before it would "catch" to toast the bread. After some weeks of that it stopped working altogether - I had to hold the lever down to make toast. Really diappointing, because I wanted the Lime Green to match my kitchen.

Do not buy, poor quality. Very nice style but after a month mine did not work properly (button kept coming up so bread could not grill). Zappos sent a new one. After 2 weeks, I could hear a weird noise coming from toaster and button kept coming up again.

If I could give it a zero, I would. Right out of the box it didn't work. It does not lock so you cannot toast without holding the the toast button down. Not exactly my idea of how a toaster should work. Called Bodum to see if there was a secret that I was missing on how to toast. Nope. It's a toaster...not exactly rocket science...really cheap product...don't buy. Now I get to go to the post office today. I need my old metal beast back...wanted something a little "more cute" on my counter. I guess looks aren't everything.
