"Budget Toaster" star star_border star_border star_border star_border There are big reasons why this toaster is a lot cheaper than any other 4 slice with bagel function. Left hand side only works of Right hand is already engaged. Controls are shared so all compartments have to do the same thing at the same time. Everything pops up at the same time regardless of when you engage the left BAGEL function is not a bagel function - is just a reheat function - does not toast one side only. Only reason I bought this was because it was the only affordable toaster with bagel function - disappointed! Doesn’t cook evenly at all. Extremely basic budget toaster.
