The toaster ahead of its time, this KitchenAid, 4-slice toaster features a blue backlit LCD display highlighting the shade level of browning, and countdown to serving time. Engineered to recall and display the last shading level and function, this contemporary appliance toasts to exact standards every time. Change the shade level using the dial that adjusts from 1-7 settings for precise browning. Using the one-touch motorized control, you can raise or lower bread at the touch of a button. The extra-wide 1 1/2" slots feature interior racks that self-adjust, centering the rack width to keep thick or thin slices of bread, bagels, pastries or English muffins upright for even toasting.
The unique bagel function on this toaster reduces power 50% on one side of the heating element to gently brown the outside of a bagel, while toasting the inside, preventing over-cooking. With the defrost button, frozen pastries are heated inside and toasted to perfection in minutes. Press the "keep warm" button and teasted foods warm up for up to 1 minute. Also features a cancel button to stop the toasting process. Cord wraps underneath the base for convenient storage. Removable crumb tray is dishwasher safe.
