Hamilton Beach Model 24790 - Very nice toasterI've used Hamilton Beach for years. My cool touch toaster, after 27 years, is becoming a bit cranky when asked to make toast, so I bought this model just in case my cool touch decides to stop working. I tested it today and was pleasantly surprised at the latest technology to make toast. I especially like the defrost selection, which is great for my homemade waffles, and breads.
I'm sure we will enjoy this toaster as much as we have enjoyed our older model. One of the nicest things I think Hamilton Beach has on their toasters is the slide out crumb trays for each toaster. So easy to clean and eliminates the mess.
Take a bow Hamilton Beach for a beautiful design.
Classic looks, new technologyWe purchased the Hamilton Beach 24790 to replace our old mechanical toaster. I saw this at Kitchen Collection and was impressed by it's classic looks. It's bagel, defrost and reheat functions work well. The darkness control is very accurate. It toasts bread consistently to the setting. We needed 12 slices for quests and this pumped them out perfectly time after time. And to think I ever tinkered on that old one. Kitchen Collection is a great place to buy one. We regret not finding it sooner.
