Nice, efficient toaster,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Krups FEM231 Toaster, 2 Slice, Black and Chrome (Kitchen & Home)
Bought this toaster a few weeks ago after reading Which reviews and the reviews of other Amazon buyers. I haven't had any of the problems with toasting quality some others seem to have had. For me, the toaster looks nice, toasts evenly and is remarkably quick. Whether it keeps up this performance for a decent lifetime, or degenerates as other toasters I've had, remains to be seen but so far I am very pleased with it and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Addendum: nearly a year on and it's still doing a great job. Performance doesn't seem to have dropped off - still toasts pretty evenly, and well within the range of adjustment.
Updated July 2013 - started playing up a week or so ago - taking much longer than usual to toast. Today the lifting mechanism has jammed. Taking it apart is made a bit more difficult by the use of a couple of Torx screws and as I can see the mechanism is all twisted I'm going to give it up as a bad job and go for a new toaster. Would have hoped it would last a bit longer than 4 years!
