Bagel Function: This is the most commonly used function for me. I love my bagels lightly toasted and a setting around 4 gives me the right amount of "toastyness" that I require. The extra wide slots are perfect for thicker bagel slices. With the Bagel function, only the two inner heating elements work. This allows you to toast only the insides of the bagel, provided you insert the sliced bagels facing the right way.
Normal Function: I've used the normal function as many times as the bagel function, whether to heat up bread slices or to toast them. A setting of 3 - 4 will give you brown toasts. In this setting, all of the heating elements work and toast the slices on both sides.
Frozen Function: I've never had the chance to use this function, so I cannot comment on it.
Removable Crumb tray: The removable crumb tray is very handy to clean up bread crumbs from time to time.
Pros: Durability, cost, ease of use and multi-functionality (for bagels as well as bread slices)
Cons: Crumbs will sometimes burn and stick to the heating element, thereby making cleaning slightly difficult. The chord is only 2 feet long and 8 inches of it is lost under the toaster (see photo). This toaster, therefore, needs to be placed very close to an outlet.
The toaster is almost a duplicate in basic features to the one we had many years ago. When we received it I was surprised at how light weight it felt and how thin all the inner workings were that held the bread. We've been using this since the end of January and it's proven itself to be quite needy. The darkness adjustment potentiometer is terrible. The tolerances as to how far you go from one side to the other in order for the toasting to actually change results is ridiculous. If you are lucky enough to land on the spot that produces toast to your liking, just try some toaster waffles and see how they turn out. The elements cook unevenly causing one side of the waffle or piece of bread to become overdone, while the other side is just barely warmed. The spring mechanism is as weak as others here have stated. At one point, the spring wouldn't even send the toast upwards after completion of the cook cycle. I really wanted to like this toaster, but I'm having the same experience with this toaster as I had with B&D's collapsible work vice/bench. They work well 50% of the time, the other 50% of the time they are a waste of money. Unfortunately, this seems to be the way things work today. Everything is made in China by the lowest bidding manufacturer and B&D products definitely show it, In the last two years I've had to replace a leaf blower, two toaster ovens and a drill. All never worked anywhere near as good as the stuff I purchased from them around 5-7 years ago and it's a real shame.
07/20/2015 Update: In a little over 6 months this toaster is close to being toasted. The darkness adjustment is useless, you have to watch and be aware of the smell to make sure whatever you are toasting doesn't burn. The bagel function stopped working about 1 & 1/2 months ago and the catch when you push the toast down is getting weaker. I've pretty much lost faith in all Black and Decker products now. I occasionally get emails from them asking for my opinion on new products they are planning, unfortunately they never have the multiple choice option of "How about building a product that works" or "How about actually manufacturing your products back the United States again." Terrible, I'm your average worker, I can't afford to by an appliance every month just because these companies don't care what they are producing. So very disappointing. What happened to your company B&D?
Mind you, I have read that "short cords" is now the norm in toasters. I guess manufacturers would rather you risk burning the upper cabinet or wall rather than letting some child hang himself with the extra cord hanging down from the counter. Ya know they must have been sued for something like that or whatever.....
Also, I have vowed to never buy an expensive toaster or coffee maker ever again. Too many times they simply don't last. So, we shop and buy these 'cheap' appliances for under $20 and have been very impressed. This toaster fits the bill (as does the $18 coffee maker). If it dies in a year, we'll simply replace it and not fret over the cost as we have done way too many times with so called "premium" model coffee makers and toasters priced much higher.
You should consider "cheapies" too not only from a cost advantage, but also cleanliness. Unless you're willing to dismantle your small appliances for a detailed cleaning, do you really wanna keep one forever?
PS: It took a couple of "toastings" before it was broken in and stopped burning or under toasting. But perfect after that!
