There are no buttons or gadgets (although I love buttons or gadgets)
on July 10, 2014
It's small. You push the button down, toast pops up. There are no buttons or gadgets (although I love buttons or gadgets), so if you want to pop the toast out earlier than you have to unplug it. The toast doesn't pop so high that it pops onto the counter (which happened with my last cheap toaster).
Oh, just a small FYI, it might seem like a good idea to unknowingly drop several packets of soy sauce into this toaster and then later try to figure out why it smells like burnt plastic, but don't do it. You would be surpirsed at how unenjoyable the entire process was. I know, I know, you're thinking, "But J, it sounds interesting and cool, what happened? Why would you attempt to dissuade us from enjoy the full pleasures of this product as you have already done?" Here's why - the bottom pops out, like it's supposed to for cleaning, but like any toaster, there's no real good way to get burnt soy sauce and plastic off the toasting bits of wire. I know, I know, buzz kill.
The good news is that if you (with a fire extinguisher nearby), toast and toast adn toast enough air, the stuff does eventually cook off the element. I tell you this because if the pop out cleaning tray on the bottom didn't work, I'd have had to throw this out. So yay, toaster bottom ready for cleaning! No, it's not as easy to pop out as some others, but hey, I bought this because I wanted very tiny counter space used not because I wanted to toast soy sauce packets on a daily basis.
