"So far, so good"
Dennis C. Bernth
This toaster is replacing a one month old Sunbeam toaster that was total junk from the beginning. In use for less than a week, but it has none of the weaknesses of the Sunbeam and plenty of strengths. If it keeps working the way it has been I'll be a happy camper. The old toaster before the Sunbeam lasted probably 8 or 9 years, and was still working OK but had a crusty nasty buildup inside from melted cinnamon sugar from some bagels that was about impossible to remove. If this one lasts 5 years before dying I'll be impressed and happy. If it dies prematurely, I'll be back to lower my rating.
