This 7.4-pound toaster's namesake single slot is long enough to fit two pieces of regular bread or one slice of an oddly sized baked good. It has great build quality, and we liked its deep feature set (seven shade settings, bagel mode, silent automatic lifting/lowering, an LED countdown meter) but found that, unless you really tweaked it, the toaster had trouble making medium-brown toast, often producing batches of barely brown or burnt-to-a-crisp slices.
