Very stylish toaster and nice deep and wide toaster slots which can accommodate thicker bread. Does take a little longer to toast than my old one, but this one toasts a lot more evenly. The lever is a little bit loose as other reviewers have mentioned, and you need to pull it down until you can hear a click as the mechanism doesn't work otherwise. Overall, I'm very happy with the styling and quality of this unit, and being Bosch I am confident it will last. The bun rack is nice and sturdy although I've not used that yet. I especially like that this toaster keeps cool while on, unlike my old Tefal which was burning hot to the touch.
I have read reviews and i can not believe what people are saying,best toaster,great product. Well we purchased same toaster about two months ago, What a totally useles toaster this is, normal bread doesnt fit it pokes an inch out the top so i dont get a full slice, doesnt toast properly so have to toast twice then if you forget off goes the smoke alarm ,there i am waving frantically with a tea towel to stop the alarm ,and still no toast for breakfast. I suggest that bosch re assemble this toaster and make iit into a drill or a grinder and put us all out of our misery. We can then go and buy a PROPER toaster.

this is one fab toaster------- has to be it's Bosch it's just a simple toaster no frills but does a great job my wife and I have used Bosch for more years than I can remember bit more expensive than others but you buy quality every time even down to this great toaster is fab fast and efficient . did I tell you so is the dish washer--the cooker it's a Neff but that is trade name for Bosch--and the fridge freezer Bosch, and so is the table top grill [Bosch] James your a bu>>>>>oooooo don't say it yes I am bragging but all kidding aside . The toaster is really fab and it's Bosch------- we buy Bosch because they very rarely break down I kid you not the washing machine is now 12 years old and has never had an engineer near it in all that time
matching my kettle this two items looks pretty smart on my kitchen top. One note: The leaver that comes down to switch it on does not stay down. It requires to bring it down gently and at this point give it a firm push down. i don't know if it meant to work like that or if it is a faulty design. It is functioning well and for the price and quality I am happy not to query that minor inconvenient.
Very attractive curved design, with a useful little metal stand on top for heating rolls (I use it to warm my plate to keep the toast warm). It toasts ok but not perfectly, a bit uneven but most toasters (that I have seen/used) seem to do this. Nice compact design so doesn't take too much space up, the buttons are well positioned and easy to use, easy to clean out the crumbs. The slots are 13.5 x 3 cms so are good for home made bread which I use. It depends what you are looking for, but this toaster suits me well. I would give it 4 and a half stars, a five if they could perfect the toasting.
