Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem with the BAGEL and FROZEN feature I just purchased your Model TR1478BD toaster yesterday and when I went to use it to toast a bagel I found there is no LED light to indicate whether or not the buttons are actually working. I had a Sunbeam® 4 Slice Toaster before and when you select the bagel feature a red light comes on to indicate it is functioning. On reading the enclosed instruction sheet that came with this toaster there is no details on how these buttons or features are suppose to function so I have no idea whether or not they work. Your instructions for this model say;3. When selecting BAGEL or FROZEN function, you must press the toast control lever before selecting one of these settings. Note: During the BAGEL function both sides will toast to the shade selected.Some of your other models instructions sheets say;Use the BAGEL function to toast bagels crispy on the cut side and gently warm on the outside.1. Insert cut bagel into the slots with cut side toward the outside of the toaster.2. Adjust the toast shade selector to the desired setting (1 to 7).3. Press down the toast lever until it locks in place then press the BAGEL button. The BAGEL LED indicator illuminates until toasting is done or until you press the CANCEL button.So I guess my question is, do I have a defective unit given there is nothing to indicate if the BAGEL or FROZEN features are activated and working?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t last 1 month Within the first month of having this toaster only half of it works. The slide lever on the left side won’t stay down and doesn’t toast. Of course, after working for a week I threw away the box and receipt so I can’t even return it to the store. Other odd quirk is that there is no way to tell when the bagel function is on. No light, no nothing. You push the bagel button and hope for the best. Can you do something to help me out in the broken part Black and Decker?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bagel Setting The bagel setting still toasts both sides. This was unexpected as usually this setting would only toast the inside of the bagel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst toaster ever. I bought this toaster because I wanted a 4 slice toaster, and because it was Black and Decker. A name I thought could be trusted. Don't me wrong, I still will probably buy Blacker and Decker again. But this toaster is the worst toaster I have ever seen in my life and I'm 59 years old. It takes forever to toast. Our eggs are done way before toast. Also I have put toast down and went in other room into get out of my pajamas and came back to kitchen and my toast was still toasting!!! I couldn't believe it. So if you are looking for a fast toaster this is not the one for you. I hate it. I was going to take it back but we live in the country and don't to town all that often and needed to use it and after using it for a while I didn't feel right returning it.
