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.
The "guilty" beep is called ATT-1205, it's a magnetic buzzer. It has 85dba output but I believe the real problem is the high frequency combined with the dba. That magnetic buzzer should be correct in a smoke alarm, it's a bit surprising it's inside a toaster. You can see the specs and picture here:
1. To open the toaster, you will need 2 different screwdrivers. One is standard but the second one is called "snake eyes". I had this in my computer kit but I guess you can find it on the net. Make sure you take a long and thin screwdriver otherwise it will not fit.
2. So here we go, unplug the toaster and then remove the 10 screws all on the bottom of the toaster.
3. Gently pull the cover. 4 connectors (2 if you have the 2 slices toaster) will forbid you to completely remove the cover. you just need to remove the 2 frontal connectors (1 if you of the 2 slices).
4. lift the chipset from the slot on the front of the toaster just to be able to see the "buzzer" called ATT-1205+ (if you have the 4 slices, it's on the front left). See my link above and it's on the back of the chipset, just pull it out, it's not very solid.
5. Put back the chipset in its slot and reconnect the connector(s). Put back just 1 screw and test your toaster. If everything is fine, put back the other screws and enjoy.
Note1: I'm used to open laptops. Ask to someone around if you don't feel comfortable.
Note2: Your warranty will be gone if you open it. Just choose between warranty and noise. :) and btw, the quality inside looks very good. I'm pretty sure this toaster will last very long.
