Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Proctor-Silex 22450 is not a fancy-looking product. If you need a fancy-looking designer toaster to impress somebody, get something else. But if you want a toaster that just does a great job for the money, this is a good choice. Its skin is insulating plastic and is very light in weight. You can just pick it up or slide back to put it away without ever burning your hand. This is a GREAT feature!
As with most toasters, you set the temp dial to the setting you want, pop your stuff in, and push down the load lever. With THIS toaster, if it is unplugged, your bread won't stay down. This is a super handy feature, because when someone unplugs your toaster to charge a cell phone or run the crock pot, you could be sitting there awhile before you notice.
Once you get it going, a red light comes on to tell you it's cooking. That red light doubles as an eject button to get your bread/poptart/muffin back right now, should you become impatient or realize your spouse...
Finally ... a toaster that does the job at a great price. Toasting is excellent - even on both sides. The cancel feature makes it very easy to stop action. And the lever for removing "difficult" pieces (raise lever up to push toasted item above the top of the toaster for easy removal - no more knives in the toaster) is a great feature and easy to use. The only thing I found to be negative was that some very large bagels did not fit in the opening; could have been slightly larger. But overall, this toaster is an excellent bargain! It replaced my previous Kitchen Aid ($100) and I couldn't be happier.
This toaster has been a disappointment. It has received an excellent rating from several sources, but has failed in performance in a couple ways. First, if the bread being toasted is not a large, full-size slice, it is likely to catch on an overhanging lip in the toast slot. This is inconvenient, as it requires fishing into the slot to get the toast out from under the lip. Second, it requires turning the toast over after the first toasting cycle to get an even browning on both sides. When I purchased this unit I expected it to produce toast evenly browned on both sides after one cycle. It hasn't happened.
