Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lam7825 Love the toaster but.....
This was my 3rd attempt with this model....and I had to return this one as well. This model apparently has many flaws. My 1st one had several faulty burner elements. The 2nd one was completely broken out of the box.....half of the digital lights didn't even come on. The 3rd one had a plunger that didn't stay down (though I could stand there and hold it down.....but that got old really quickly).
This purchase was my 1st with Home Depot. I love the features of this toaster, but T-Fal has many quality-control issues. We loved the digital display and bagel feature. And the long wide slots are great for up to 4 slices of bread or smaller bagels, plus smaller French breads or rolls.
I am going to try again, and hope for the best. My issue isn't with Home Depot, as their return policy was the best. Buyer beware!

Ok so here's the skinny.... this toaster is different in that it only has two sets of elements actually doing the toasting. Both are located on the outside walls of the toaster. At first I thought I was imagining this but it's true. It does seem to toast both sides of the bread though. It just doesn't do it as evenly as a unit with 4 sets of elements that's all. To this point I'd say I'm satisfied, I work around the unevenness by turning the slices when I feel I need to. In cases for sandwiches though I use the slightly less toasted side to put whatever I'm making the sandwich of on and that works for me. Bottom line is this unit is functional but it's certainly not a top of the line performer but it's priced well and it is a longslot 4 slice toaster allowing for some flexibility on slice size which is what I was looking for. I suppose if I were to buy again I'd probably look @ a different toaster with 4 elements and the same features this one has, more $ though. Hope this helps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Nice looking and functional
Wanted a black toaster to match rest of stuff in the kitchen and the narrow design with two long slots
allows some flexibility to toast long slices of bread. The digital countdown is a nice plus.

This has all the bells and whistles.....love it! All widths and lengths of bread fit. Why is it not in the stores? I would have bought it a long time ago. Everyone I show it to wants one.
It looks good, also. Like the defrost.

Purchased as a Christmas gift, today is January 10th and it is broken. The browning selector stuck on 1. Can't use any of the functions buttons. From TFal I expected better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nan1 very poor
only toasts on outer side, nothing on inner side. Does not perform as a toaster should, I would like to return it.
