I was a bit skeptical when I saw "motorized" toaster. But with all the trouble I've had in recent years finding a "push down" toaster that stays down long enough to actually toast the bread I decided to try it. It is so easy to use and does a fantastic job with the toasting. Just drop the bread in, push the "toast: button, and a minute or so later you have perfect toast. I tried using the bagel setting only to find it toasts only on the cut side. That's not so bad since that is the only thing I'm not crazy about with this toaster. So, unless you run a bagel shop, buy this toaster! It's great.
