Nine months later (no, not that kind of nine months) I'm adjusting my rating from 4(5) to 2(5) Amazon stars. The issue with the locking mechanism, of course, has only got worse. Now you need to press down, and while lever is depressed, pull slightly on the handle to make it stick in locked position.
The toasting effect is another goofy thing on this item. Any setting higher than 1 (the lowest, knob turned all the way down) will totally cremate anything in the toaster.
But turned down to minimum heat, and once you manage to get the toaster tray to stick in toasting position, it does produce a nice and even toast.
Still not impressed, KitchenAid.
--original review below-- Got this toaster mainly for the looks of it, but it turned out to be a pretty good machine. Toasts evenly and fairly quick, easy to use. Holding back one star for value, it's a tad pricy, and for being just a little unnecessary bulky. Also the up and down mechanism...
Normally, I absolutely LOVE Kitchenaid products; I find the company to be very trustworthy, and their products to be top-notch. This toaster did not meet the normal Kitchenaid standards -- at least not in my book. I bought this because I wanted a good-looking toaster that works beautifully. Well, with the red exterior and all -- the beauty part was definitely fulfilled. The working part? Well, not so much. Of course, I'll explain: * Inconsistency is key with this toaster. You never know what you're gonna get -- is my toast going to be scorched? Is it even going to be toasted? It's a bit of a gamble with this one. You never quite know what level to turn it to, because it doesn't depend on the food you have; it seems to depend on the mood of the toaster, or something. I'm not quite sure what the algorithm here is, obviously. * Sure, there's a crumb-tray you can clean out, but what do you do with the rest of it? For some reason, this thing GATHERS a good amount...
Our old toaster finally bid farewell, so as the Kitchenaid fit our kitchen decor it was ordered after assuring it had good reviews. Although a little larger than previous toasters it has proven to be a worthy addition to our kitchen appliances. The slightly longer time it takes to toast the bread is soon forgotten as the bread comes up so evenly toasted. Muffins also get an even treatment. If the present trend continues it will be an excellent purchase.
