Automatically toasts, defrosts, and reheats at the touch of a button. Impressively consistent results in every setting. Boasts a whopping 7 browning levels. 2 control panels conveniently allow for different levels of toasting at the same time. Lever-less slots self adjust to accommodate any thickness. LCD countdown display and beeping readiness alert are nice touches. Motorized lift works smoothly and quietly, with no alarming toaster-to-counter ejection. Attractive design.
It's on the higher end of the price spectrum. Chunky build can take up extra counter space.
Transparent glass sides allow you to keep tabs on every second of the toasting process and adds a novel visual element to the toasting experience. Features touch controls with 6 browning shade options in toast, defrost, reheat, and bagel settings. Allows for single slice toasting. Removable glass window panes and crumb tray make for easy cleaning.
Doesn't quite offer the same levels of aesthetic appeal as full stainless steel varieties.
