To ensure all my reviews are thorough and up to date, I always start by going online and learning everything I can about the product I’m reviewing. Subsequently, I place an order for the unit and personally take it through a series of tests to personally ascertain that it can deliver as advertised.
Some of the things I checked out during the test sessions include consistency, sturdiness, durability, reliability, size, safety features, ease of cleaning, futuristic designs, ease of use, and more. As you can see, it doesn’t get more thorough than that.
As such, I hope that this guide on KitchenAid Toaster with High-Lift Lever KMT4116CU 4-Slice Long Slot Toaster will be useful in helping you determine whether (or not) the unit is worth your consideration.
KitchenAid Toaster with High-Lift Lever KMT4116CU 4-Slice Long Slot, DAA Review
As evident from the product’s image above, KitchenAid Toaster with High-Lift Lever KMT4116CU 4-Slice Long Slot, DAA hasn’t been fitted with unnecessary bells and whistles. The unit only retails with what’s needed to deliver some of the most delicious toasties you’ve ever come across.
To test the unit’s consistency, I went out and acquired five loaves of bread and decided to toast all slices using the appliance back-to-back and without letting the unit rest in between. What were the results? They exceeded my expectations, and that’s why I’m rooting for this masterpiece.
The last four slices came out just as perfectly and evenly toasted as the first ones, and throughout the session, the unit delivered these toasts in less than five minutes. That’s as fast as some of the fastest 4-slice toasters.
Another thing I noticed during my test session was that it retails with a cool to the touch exterior. Even though the unit was in operation for approximately two hours, its exterior surfaces didn’t get hot even one bit. This safety feature will protect everyone in your home from sustaining any burn injuries.
To ensure that the appliance can handle anything your home throws in it, it has been fitted with 7 shade settings, and four cooking functions, namely keep warm, reheat, defrost, and bagel.
When your toasties are ready to eat, but you don’t want to retrieve them just yet, simply activate the keep warm setting, and it’ll keep them hot for as long as you need. As for the bagel setting, it activates only one side of the heating elements so that the unit can only toast the cut side of your bagels.
I’d like to conclude the fact it retails in three different shades, namely empire red, Onyx black, and the grey option shown in the image above. These options allow you to pick the unit in a shade you think will best complement your kitchen interior décor and blend in with other appliances.
