Rated 1 out of 5 by from Either Burns or Uncooks toast I'm definitely not one to write bad reviews but this toaster either burns my toast or under cooks it...I keep playing with the settings to get the right one but not much luck....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied with my toaster Been a loyal Black and Decker customer for so long, I’ve had a blender and a hand mixer which I both love to use in my kitchen. That’s why when I needed to replace my old toaster, I didn’t pick any other brand but Black and Decker because I know I can rely on how well it works. I was wrong though because I was disappointed with my recent purchase. Overall look is good, the slots for the slices are big enough for any bread which I liked. However, I’m not satisfied with the toasting mechanism itself. First, there are no light indicators for the bagel option, making it confusing if the function is on or off. Second, it takes so long for the toasting to be complete, I end up just pressing the middle button to finally get it done. Lastly, the position of the crumb tray would have been way better if i don’t have to lift the entire toaster just to clean it up. I believe this toaster’s feautures needs a fine tune for it to keep up with the black and Decker brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Under or Overdone Honestly, I came here hoping someone had a solution - like a key to these settings. I don’t understand the bagel & frozen buttons. I don’t even know what the frozen button is supposed to do differently. I know what to expect with the bagel option, but whether it not I press it, half the elements never get red. And pretty sure the instructions say to press before lowering, but a response here says after to press it after, so that is confusing. I’m only using regular toast option now, but everything comes out pale, but multiple toasting 3 1/2 or below to get a browned toast also gets your hard, tough crusts. 4 and over one side gets burnt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bagel button? Our son bought us this toaster for Christmas to replace our old 2-slicer. It looks nice, toasts nicely, and fits all kinds of bread. Unfortunately we kept finding that the elements come on and toast both sides of the item even when we push "bagel". When I looked in the manual, it actually states that bagel function will toast BOTH sides! What is the point of this button?? My son bought it knowing that we like the bagel button on our old machine (which I unfortunately got rid of after Christmas!) because it did NOT toast the outside of the bagel! Doesn't sound like a big deal, except that he never would have purchased this model had he known that it did not actually have this much desired feature. Does this button actually do anything? I'm kind of wishing I'd held on to the old toaster just for the bagel function! I feel that this product misrepresents itself, unless "bagel function" has some new meaning and I'm just out of the loop! Eating overly toasted bagels for now...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased this toaster approximately one year ago, and failed to save the receipt, since Black and Decker appliances have always been so reliable.Unfortunately, the right side already has stopped functioning. The lever does not even stay down for the bread to toast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst toaster ever! I’ve had the worst experience with this toaster. I have had it less than a month and the little part that holds, lowers, and raises the bread has broken in two separate spots. Worst money I’ve ever spent and I’ve made a lot of poor choices financially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I am thrilled with this product. Cooks toast just right on both sides. Matches my kitchen as well

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst toaster I've ever owned I am not much of a reviewer. I only do this when a product seriously impresses me, or seriously disappoints me... Unfortunately, this item SERIOUSLY disappoints me. I bought it because Black and Decker for decades has been a great name and provided reliable, dependable, long-lasting products. This isn't one of them. The right side of the toaster quit working literally 2 weeks after purchase. I lost the receipt so I couldn't return it. Now, after only 9 months of owning it, the lever on the only working side has broken. I see no benefit to the freezer or bagel mode. I actually think they do nothing. In a nutshell, don't buy this product.
