This Proctor Silex Cool-Wall 2-Slice Toaster is a relatively inexpensive toaster. It is not the best in the world and occasionally I have to toast my english muffins a second time, but it does the job. I have had this toaster for quite some time and moved with it and it has held up. The toaster does make cleaning out the crumbs easy, and I love the cool-wall design. I have very little counter space, so the toaster is close to other appliances and serving spoons, which are plastic. Because the cool-wall, it makes me more comfortable having some of the things on my counter closer together. Also, I have noticed that the toaster openings are big enough for me to toast bagels without them getting stuck, but not too wide as to cause me to have to get a knife out to find that little english muffin or piece of toast that went in sideways. Overall great toaster if you are looking for something that is reasonably priced.
