Maybe KitchenAid had redesigned the buzzer since its initial release, but with the 2015 model that I received, I have absolutely NO issues with its buzzer volume. In fact, I'm more afraid of not hearing the buzzer if I step away from my small apartment kitchen only to return to cold toast that wouldn't melt any butter.
Beyond the buzzer, I love everything else about it, and toast comes out evenly and to the right "shade" (after trial and error on what "bar" setting toasts it to my preference). For lower-profile bread, the platform may not elevate them high enough so it may be uncomfortably hot to pull the toast out by hand; I use tongs for those situations.
Sure, it may be the lazy man (or woman) way of performing such a simple task with motorized lifter, but it does this job admirably.
I regret that I did not follow my instinct and originally purchase this KitchenAid toaster to replace the KitchenAid I bought in 2005. Unfortunately, I was swayed by reviews but after much frustration going through reviews of other toasters, I decided why not buy the KitchenAid since my old one was fantastic.
This KitchenAid toaster is so much better than the Krups #732D I returned. Setting this toaster on the counter I noticed it was a better quality product than the Krups. It was heavier, had a more solid construction and nothing jiggled.
I ran 4 test cycles at various heat levels and was surprised the new toaster did not give off an obnoxious smell.
Next, I toasted a couple of pieces of bread to see if they came out evenly toasted. On level 5, I found the toast to be way too dark, almost burnt. On level 3, it was good. The quality of the toasting was fine. Play around with it and find your sweet spot.
Comments made by other reviewers regarding the loud annoying beep are overstated. The toaster emits a beep at both the beginning and end of the toasting cycle. It's no big deal.
Finally, the KitchenAid was cool to the touch on the sides of the toaster. I didn't touch the top of the toaster as it is metal and I would expect it to be hot.
I did test out a Cuisinart toaster purchased at Target for $39. Black plastic little number that was just as bad as the Krups. AVOID.
Also, I think the elements are not very hot, or hot enough. It seems to take a long time to produce toast and when it is done, even on a setting of 3 it seems to be light on the outside and somewhat baked through. So the toast kind of dries out on the inside.
I did get better toast from my previous $20 toaster, but this looks nice and I thought the brand name would carry through to product quality. Not so much. I don't recommend
Also it toasts really unevenly; usually the top is more toasted than the bottom; so actually the "take it out and pop it back in" method is good because it gives the chance to turn the toast over and get an even toast, top and bottom.
However, the worst problem with this toaster is the noise. It is SO LOUD. The toasting noise itself is silent but the buzzer/pinging noise, wow. It buzzes (it's a kind of high pitched buzzing/whistling tone) when you put bread in and again when it's ready. I understand the buzz when the toast is ready, some people wander away from the toaster to make a cup of coffee or whatever, and need to be reminded. But when putting in the bread? I think most people are aware when they are putting bread into a toaster...
I work from home a lot and get up quite early (usually around 5am, sometimes around 4am.) The noise is so loud I worry I'm waking my neighbors. Even later in the day I worry that I'm annoying them! Even if they can't hear it, the noise goes right through me. It's awful! And If, as noted above, you have to turn the toast over and retoast it to get an even browning, you have to listen to the beep FOUR times per toasting. I've put up with it for a few months but I'm now at the stage where I kind of dread making toast or want to invest in earplugs - or another toaster....
Kitchenaid have this on their electric kettle too - when you set the kettle on the base, when you press the button to start it, and three times when it boils. Again, I'm thinking of getting another kettle for the same reasons as above. They make decent products but they REALLY need to think about putting a feature on where it's possible to turn this buzzer/noise off, or at least make it quieter. Or include earplugs and wall insulation with every purchase.
