This two slot KitchenAid toaster has empire red painted steel on the sides and toasts breads and pastries up to one and a half inches thick.

KitchenAid KMT222ER Customer Reviews
"You have to push fairly hard to get the lever to stay down. Otherwise, it works great. Thought our old toaster was taking too long to toast, but this one takes about 2 minutes, too. Is that normal?"
"Excellent toaster with great product design. Adds a great splash of colour to the kitchen!"
"We wanted a toaster that was small, but could accomodate larger pieces of bread (artisan, homemade, etc) - this is perfect!! It works great and I got it for less thru KaTom and received it faster than they said! Very happy with the toaster and the service :)"
