Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobra from It toast bread - how hard can that be? I bought this toaster because it was well reviewed and appeared to have good reliability. 3 weeks in, so far so good. What can you say about a toaster - it does its job but hey, it’s just a toaster, not rocket science. It’s very large, seems robust and it works. The big negative for me is the HIGHLY irritating beep when you turn it on and when it’s finished toasting. I mean, I can maybe understand the beep when it has finished (although it could be more subtle) but why does it beep when start toasting? I’m right there - I KNOW it’s started so why give me an audible signal that can be heard in the next postcode?

Rated 4 out of 5 by CKPossum from Only one drawback We've had this toaster for almost 2 months now and it makes great toast (raisin bread included). However, having paid a premium price for the "crumpet" setting which was for us a major criteria in choosing this brand and model; the results are much less than satisfactory. Very disappointed that the full "7" needs to be selected after which the crumpets still need to be rotated (top to bottom) and a further "4" selected before a consistent cook and colouring is achieved. Slow and annoying to say the least as our previous run of the mill pop-up did this particular task better. In fairness it looks impressive on the bench.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Derek_AU from Decent toaster with a very annoying alert noise The toaster works largely as you'd expect. Takes a long time to get a decent brown on heavy sourdough or gluten-free bread, but I guess that's par for the course. The big downside (and this is despite previous purchasers) flagging this with the manufacturer since at least 2016 is the very loud, piercing beep noise that it makes at the start and end of the toast cycle. I'm guessing the alert is needed because the toast doesn't spring up (so no "sproing" sound at the end), but it's unexpectedly loud. It is in desperate need of a volume control. Also needs a lift function to make it easier to get smaller pieces of bread out when the cycle is complete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MPR1177 from Bells & Whistles I bought this two weeks ago as my two year old Sunbeam started to burn toast & set off my smoke alarm. I like the features like defrost warming & the ability to toast thick bread & crumpets. The toast color is perfect but I do find the toast to be very dry with the all the internal moisture released in the process. Some times I will cut the bread in half or remove a portion. When the cycle is finished the height that the toast ejects is not adjustable so I can't manualy raise the toast or pop it up to grab it. I have to wait for the toaster to cool down before I can reach the toast without burning my fingers. I would also like to be able to turn the BEEB alert off with a switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Murphy from So disappointed! I bought this toaster a month ago after a lot of research. Initially it was fabulous but within 10 days it started playing up. One side of the pair would not release the toast and raise it after the cooking cycle had completed. We managed by turning it off and then on again at the power point but then this process no longer solved the problem. Now both sides of the toasting pair are playing up. Thank you Kitchen Aid for offering to replace it. I am waiting for a replacement to arrive at the retail store. I hope that this was an unusual problem and we have better luck with the next toaster.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JamesR from Works well - when it works Have been a big fan of commercial grade products for a retail market, hence why I always weigh up KithenAid. HOWEVER, apart form their stand mixers and hand blenders & mixers, it seems they are dabbing into other appliances and unfortunately is going to tarnish reputation. Have had this toaster for about 2.5 years and have to admit I only used it rarely. Now, the left hand side failed to work. Lowers bread and raises straight back up. Repeats this about three time then holds the bread down. Have to turn off the unit and back on to release the bread. Very inconvenient if you already have the other side going. Now, it just trips the circuit. Seems to be many others with same issue. Always these issues appear just out of warranty. Premium price for something I would expect for an average price quality. Same goes with their Artisan 1.7L Kettle but that is a whole other story Have invested a lot of money in KitchenAid and starting to realize it is starting to become a gamble...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pav1 from Excellent We got this 5 days ago, and so far it has been excellent, the bread is crispy on the outside and soft inside, ie I put it on level 5 or 6, it goes up to 7 so it all depends on whatever shade you choose. Other then that, it's a very sleek, elegant and modern looking toaster. There are other toasters on the market that may look "prettier" but they don't have the same features as this one. I rather more features and functionality over just looks... this is one sexy toaster! In saying that, I will give another review in a years time to really see how the product is performing, hopefully it'll be the same as when we first bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lonnyjokan from At long last.. We have had do many toasters, from the Kmart special to more sophisticated models from well known brands. Each time we got frustrated by the hype not living up to performance. Hence the leap into the high end market and after a month we are very happy with the toaster. No more hovering over the top, wasting time and colourful vernacular. The crumpet setting is excellent. The toasting is even. We read some reviews that commented on the beeping as the the toaster started and finished, well in our view it lets you know exactly what's going on so you can concentrate on other tasks. Simple to operate. Would recommend to anyone.
