This is a great toaster. It boasts modern design touches, the angled front really makes insertion and removal of toast easy and not subject to cabinet heights. The lift levers do a great job of helping to raise up your toast so you don t need to reach into the toaster. These lift levers have also been updated from the previous generation of Avante toasters (which we have); the previous generation you d have to hold the lever down with one hand and grab your toast with the other. These lift levers lock down, so your toast is kept elevated so you can use both hands to remove toast.
The only real drawback is that it says high speed on it, but it isn t that fast. It takes a couple of minutes to produce toast or a toasted bagel. Bear in mind though, that I bought and tested 4 other toasters before choosing this one and each of the other 4 toasters performed even more slowly.
