This Sunbeam is a great toaster! I was wary of buying it, because of bad reviews, but I am very satisfied. It gets the job done. To address some complaints...
True, the power cord does come out near the front. However, the bottom of the toaster is built to allow the user to thread the cord along and come out the back. Not the longest cord every made, but long enough for my needs.
True, each slot only has a heating element on one side. However, the other side reflects the heat so both sides of the bread get toasted. The toast comes out slightly darker on one side, and I can't imagine that being a problem
Don't be afraid to buy this product. It is a good little machine, especially for the price.
I bought the Sunbeam Black 2-Slice Toaster because of:1 its low price2 its black colorThis toaster works fine for bagels or toast. The darkness control provides repeatable adjustment - just figure out the setting for your bagels or toast & use it again & again for reliable performance.Even forgetting the low price, the only negative I can find about this product is that for my counter location, it would be better if the cord came out the other side.
