Long and sleek, this toaster from Braun's Impressions design collection features a cool-touch exterior of brushed stainless steel. The toaster's single 10-by-1-1/2-inch slot holds two slices of regular size bread or one over-sized slice from a broad focaccia or round bakery loaf. For heating up rolls, croissants, and other bulky items such as taco shells, a wire warming rack is included that fits securely on top of the toaster. Intuitive to use, the toaster features all the most important aspects of toasting, such as a variable-setting browning control knob (with seven quick-reference settings), extra-high lift to make it easy to remove small pieces of toast, bright red 'on' light, and defrost, reheat, and stop functions. A small bread-roll icon on the control knob indicates where to set the dial when using the warming rack. For crumb removal a tray slides out the back, and the 40-inch cord wraps neatly underneath for storage. Measuring 8 by 17 by 6-1/2 inches, the toaster wipes clean with a damp sponge and is covered by a one-year warranty against defects.
