Hamilton Beach 22791 Modern Chrome 2-Slice Toaster Review

[wp-review id=”204″]

Hamilton beach has been producing kitchen appliances for more than 2 decades, and the quality is always getting better with time. Talking about performance, durability and smart appearance, this brand has never compromised, despite a reasonable price range.

The Hamilton Beach 22791 Modern Chrome 2-Slice Toaster is one of the best toasters from Hamilton Beach. It is ideal for regular home and office use, and can provide toasted bread and bagels for a perfect breakfast or snack. Specs and features are discussed below in detail.

Useful bagel setting

A bagel is best to eat when its crusty sides are well toasted, while the central part is still soft and chewy enough. This is what exactly Hamilton Beach 22791 has made a provision for. The bagel setting toasts your bagel (or bread, if you like) only on the sides, while the center is chewy.

Not only bagels, but regular bread or English muffins can also be toasted this way. These kinds of settings add variety and uniqueness to your regular breakfasts. A toast booster feature allows a little extra browning and easy toasting for smaller pieces of breads.

Easy to grip shade dial

The Hamilton Beach Modern Chrome 2-Slice Toaster Review has made a provision of an easy to grip handle which can be used for selection of the desired shade of the toast. This is useful, because some people prefer their toast only lightly brown, some like it medium, and some like it dark and crisp. The slots are wider enough to accommodate more than just regular breads; this may include frozen pancakes or toaster pastries etc.

An automatic shutoff system prevents the appliance overheating and toast burning. A crumb tray is provided which can be easily slide out and cleaned. It comes with 1 year manufacturer warranty to assure the user can avail the after sales services as well.

Although LED display is an important feature, which is missing in this toaster, the compensation is made by an auto shutoff feature. With a little creativity, the bagel feature and all other ones can be used to create more varied breakfast, such as slightly browned donuts, English muffins, frozen waffles, pancakes etc.

It is a well-engineered toaster, which can deliver uniform and consistent performance with every use. It has been designed attractively, keeping in mind the size compactness, durability and reliability. Unlike many other brands, it is not hot to touch because of a cool touch exterior. It is tried by many users and they recommend it to others as well.
