I checked Consumer Reports and individual customer reviews before buying this toaster. Like most products, there were mixed reviews, but mainly good I thought, so I bought one from Hayneedle. Some people had said that the product stickers on the front of the toaster left a residue after being removed. Knowing that, I carefully and slowly removed them BEFORE using the toaster for the first time. I also used a soft cloth with Goo-Gone to remove the slight residue that remained. No problem and the toaster looks GREAT - very nice design and a smaller footprint than our last one. Also, a reviewer complained that the power cord emanated from the front bottom of the toaster. True, but there is a built-in cord wrap and a couple of points at the sides that can be used to route the cord properly, and they work just fine. Someone else said the toaster was light in weight and felt cheap. I think the weight is adequate and it doesn't feel cheap to me. With the rubber feet, it stays where you put it. The design of the toaster is very stylish and modern, without being over-the-top. The crumb tray appears to be well-designed and I don't think it will be any problem to dump out the crumbs occasionally, or clean the surfaces of the toaster. The toaster has some nice looking and well thought out controls, which I have not tried yet (thus the 4 star, rather than 5 star... so far, review). The directions say not to operate it empty, so I set the dial to the recommended starting point, put two pieces of whole wheat bread in, and pushed the lever down. It operated perfectly, and toasted evenly on both sides. The only thing I would caution others is that, when you first operate it, like many such appliances, there will be a smell from the manufacturing process or materials used, but that was not imparted to the flavor of the toast, and went away quickly. My online transaction with Hayneedle was smooth and easy, and shipping was quick (I opted for the relatively inexpensive ground shipment, rather than their free offer. So far, so good.

One star rating is due to cost for mediocre performance. Toaster was highly recommended as being worth the extra cost over less expensive units. I returned and exchanged the first one because it didn't toast both sides of bread evenly. Second toaster also requires turning bread and re-toasting to get both sides toasted more or less evenly. I decided not to return again....I'm stuck with an expensive unit that for some reason, doesn't work properly for me.

        The 'stainless steel' surface is stained with light surface rust. Very disappointing.

        Works For Me

        from Annandale, VA, United States

        Comments about Calphalon 1779206 2 Slice Toaster:

        First of all, the sticky label residue is very, very slight, but being a perfectionist I had to remove the slightly dark residue. Isopropyl alcohol took care of it easily. Then I tried the toaster using traditional Wonder bread. Toasted perfectly. It is a very light toaster giving the impression it is not made well, but everything seemed to be well fastened. Looks nice too, doesn't show fingerprints.

        GREAT PRODUCT - WHY SUCH POOR REVIEWS?

        By Vincent

        from Weston, FL, United States

        Comments about Calphalon 1779206 2 Slice Toaster:

        I've only had my 2 slot toaster for a few days, but it toasts on both sides just fine and the product stickers came off without leaving any marks. If you use the "bagel" setting it only toasts on one side by design, so maybe that's the problem some users were having. I took the stickers off my toaster immediately and there were no marks on the stainless steel finish; my guess is removing the stickers after first use may be causing the sticker glue to leave a residue on the finish. Otherwise, toasts great, looks good and seems to perform as advertised.

        Very disappointed this product does not toast the same on both sides. One side light, and one side almost burnt.

        Comments about Calphalon 1779206 2 Slice Toaster:

        The toaster is aesthetically nice and toasts well-enough; however, it could use a few design improvements: cord should be in the back, not front; cord could be about an inch longer; and crumb tray should be in the front, not back - it would be easier to access.

        Comments about Calphalon 1779206 2 Slice Toaster:

        I bought this toaster to replace a 'cheap' item my husband picked up last year. It would not toast evenly and usually burnt most items. This new Calphalon not only toasts perfectly, but truly pops up when the item is done. It may have cost more.....but it is worth every cent! I haven't thrown out one item since we got it in January. Thanks, Calphalon! I also have your cookware and it cannot be beat!
