Back in the 1940s and 50s toasters were notorious
- Burning bread;
- Uneven toasting;
- Nothing toasted, on the first try.
- Bread getting stuck inside the toasting mechanism;
- Inaccurate controls (the dials being better named "Press Here for Mystery Toast");
- Confirming the maxim "where there's smoke there's fire." In fact, with this toaster the slogan on the box should declare "With This Toaster When There's Smoke, There Will Be Fire."
So you see, the manufacturer (some Chinese peasant working for $10 a month) has correctly advertised this toaster. It is truly a retro toaster. With it you can travel back to the 1950s and experience exactly what people put up with back then. (See above.)
Bonus Tip: For the maximum retro experience disconnect your smoke detector. Back then they did not have smoke detectors. You will ruin your "retro ride on the Nostalgia Electrics train to the 1950s and all stops in-between" if your smoke alarm starts wailing like a speared Medusa's head.
After we used it about five times it starts smoking with a burning plastic or such smell. We had to return it. Buyer beware there are better options at this price point other than this poorly made counter decoration.
looked great on counter, window was cool until toast would not rise out of toaster after just a few uses

It's not as cute as pictured, looks like a cheap piece of trash, and it worked long enough to burn one piece of toast. Absolute and total garbage.Published 22 months ago by Nikol Hasler

This toaster is a huge disappointment. If the slice of bread does not get stuck and burned to a crisp, it is barely toasted at all. Read morePublished on October 1, 2013 by Mark S.
