If your partner likes their bagel lightly toasted, and you like yours golden brown, you can both get what you want without any guesswork.
There is a digital readout that gives you unambiguous feedback. You can see at all times what darkness you have the toaster set to. It also gives you a little count-down timer so you know how long you have left.
You don't have to pry at the handle to cancel your toast. Of course, since you get consistent results, you probably don't have to cancel that often.
If you do pull the handle up, your toast comes up for you to look at it without having to cancel the toasting. Just let go, and the toast drops back down to continue the cycle.
It beeps when your toast is done. Sometimes the pop-up sound can be lost over the sound of the coffee machine. The beep is much easier to hear.
-More options I don't use.
There are some more buttons in the front that I've not had to use. Defrost and warm, I think.
I'm very pleased with my new toaster. I like over-engineered devices- devices where someone has thought of nearly everything and found an elegant solution. This toaster doesn't disappoint.
Update, Aug 14, 2009:
After two years of use this toaster is still going strong.
Our previous toaster lived a long, albeit, mediocre life. We would have liked to have replaced it with a similar model since our expectations (low) were already molded by the last one, but it had be discontinued which left us on the quest to find another brand. Arghhh!
The search ended with the Breville CT75XL 4 slice toaster. We've had the toaster for about 30 days and have toasted a variety of breads, bagels,and frozen waffles; all to our complete amazement and satisfaction.
The unit's footprint is a bit large but acceptable, yet then most 4 slice toasters tend to be on the behemoth side these days. I'm not sure why the darkness control goes to all the up to 10 as we have found that setting it to 4 seems to be plenty dark enough. The digital display has an integrated timer with segments that blink as the toasting time counts down. When the toast is ready, the toaster will beep just prior to popping up the product.
Now, I'm not a professional product reviewer so I won't go into the nitty-gritty details as to the features. You can read all about them from the manufacturer's website. I just wanted to let those that are interested, that, for one who hates toasters, the Breville has been a pleasant find.
This toaster surpassed any toaster I have ever used, even the top of the line import for Sweden. It isn't one of those toasters you need to pop down two times for thick bread. It has a lighted dial and it WORKS GREAT!
Everything I have tried in the Breville line has been quality and worth every penny.
It was time for a new toaster - so, I did my research, read quite a few reviews, and found that this Breville was rated the best not only for it's features, but the fact that it does what it's supposed to do - toast bread. It's quick, evenly toasts and I never thought there would be a big difference in the quality of toast - but there is - and this toaster will prove it.
The manual says to start out at setting "4" and go from there to see how dark you like your toast - my suggestion is to go with setting "3". This is a powerful toaster and will easily burn your bread should you have the setting too high.
Thumbs up - you won't be disappointed especially in this price range.
