However, if you ONLY care about the practical aspects of this toaster, be aware that while it does a fine job of preparing toasted bread, it is only a a so-so radio. On the other hand, as an accent to a Space Age, modern or even a retro kitchen, this adds a unique touch.
Bottom line? I give it 5 stars for DESIGN, but only 3 for FUNCTIONALITY.
If you really want a great radio, stay away. The sound quality is lackluster, at best. Also, it can't be too safe to have a radio and a toaster combo, not with all the heating elements. I'd be a bit wary of using a radio/toaster combo every day. Maybe on occasion, though, especially as a conversation piece...
BUT, I just keep in mind that it's a TOASTER first, and a radio secondarily. The radio controls are, ummm, primitive, but perhaps that is for a reason---all radios usually are affected by electrical appliances running close by to them, so maybe overcoming that interference necessitates the non-sophisticated radio controls. I do notice that when I run a blender nearby the radio transmission is silenced.
Let's face it, it's a gimmicky appliance. But I love it. I can have my radio on right by the stove while I'm cooking, and hear it well, and not bother someone watching TV in the next room. I've developed a great affection for the thing!!!
So. A terrific toaster. A so-so radio. A gimmicky gadget that is easy to love! :)
I assumed that coming from Kenwood, the radio would at least be a decent unit. Wrong.
This thing is merely a gag product, and the joke's on the buyer.
Second criteria is the amazing attractiveness of the toaster. Every guest who has come to our home has commented on the "vintage" toaster we have. Our kitchen is decorated in a 1940's style, and a few people have asked if the toaster was from the 1940's. Ummm. No. But the toaster is solidly made and nice to look at.
As far as the radio aspect goes... well, I have to tell ya; I didn't buy a toaster so I could dance to it. I bought a toaster to make bread brown and crispy, and I got a toaster that didn't look hideous at the same time. I'm satisfied. I don't know if the radio works, and I don't particularly care. When I want music, I turn to my iPod, when I want bread that is brown and crispy, I go to my toaster. Both look wonderful and do an exceptional job serving their partcular purposes. But if Steve Jobs announced a new iPod, where you stick bread in the dock, well... I might think those black turtlenecks were running a bit tight.
It is utter and complete junk. I feel really ripped off at 29 bucks....heaven help the people who paid 99.
I guess the Kenwood people just went along with it. The radio is the worst consumer radio I have ever heard! It sounds worse than a $3 transistor radio you might get at the Dollar store. That is not an exaggeration. It has no dial or station display - you just push the seek button untill you get a acceptable station. When you turn it off, it forgets and you start the process again. It is not a radio that you could actually functionally use - even to listen to the news while your breakfast bagel heats up.
