We have had this for some time now. The crumb tray sliding out the front is nice too. It matches the red of our stand mixer, an extra bonus for us. The warmer rack works or making mutable batches and all being warm at serving. We use it on 3 or 3 1/2 setting. If you bread is really thin use a lower setting. We make most of our own bread, this toaster has wide slots and let us make a nice thick piece of toast.
I just wanted a toaster that toasts and pops the toast up when done. However , now that i have this toaster, it has features that make it fit our usage really well. 1) the button to pop stop toasting and pop up the slices is great so i can do a light toast for my wife and not have to change settings each time. 2) the push down knob also has a little extra movement at the top of the range to push toast up. So no more struggling with toast not popping up above the toaster top. 3) can toast 6 slices without waiting for cool down and all slices come out pretty much done the same. 4) bagels slices don’t get stuck, very happywhat i would change:make the openings just a little bit longer, the bread we like is a little wider than regular commercial bread. The slices still fit, but i have to push them in a little bit. A quarter inch would have been perfect. We do set it to a somewhat light setting as others have mentioned.

I love delonghi kmix products. I have drip coffee maker, espresso maker and water boiler too. I needed toaster so i bought this one. Like other people said, you can only use set1-2, otherwise you will burn your bread. I use set1 for sandwich bread. Set 2 for bagle and frozen waffle. I bought this because it is attractive to look.
Compact, sturdy, very attractive, incredibly easy to use, and easy to clean. My favorite feature is the lever that allows you to lift the toast in the middle of the toasting process to check on the progress. Sometimes i wish i could make a grilled cheese, but then again, you’d be shopping for a toaster oven if that’s what you wanted. Would highly recommend this.
DeLonghi Kmix 2-Slice Toaster, Blue : Was looking for a cute pop of color for a mundane appliance. Color is what was reflected on device.
My boyfriend purchased this toaster for me in the green color as a birthday gift and i really rather like it. It does toast bread fairly evenly, though, like most toasters it does make some heat/toast lines on the bread. I especially like the ‘peek’ function that allows you to pop the bread up to check how it’s coming along without actually canceling the heating. One thing i don’t really like is the branding stamped into both sides and top of the toaster, but it’s actually not super apparent unless you are right there using it, still it’s unnecessary.
My roommates and i chose this toaster together, since between the 3 of us, we didn’t have one. I became very concerned after seeing so many negative reviews of other toasters, i felt that finding a decent toaster was an impossible feat, but i was drawn in to this one based on the good reviews and simple design. So far, we have been using the toaster daily (as of a few weeks ago); we tend to eat a decent amount of toast and bagels in the morning. The toaster seems to toast quickly as the heating elements are quite hot. So out of about 8 levels of heat, a room temperature slice of sandwich bread will become golden brown at the 1. 5-2 setting, and a bagel will get medium brown at about 2. 75 or just under the 3 setting. For frozen or cold items, use the higher settings, though i never freeze bread or eat frozen waffles and the like–i don’t have an exact figure. The crumb catcher is great, the color is wondrfully bold, and it doesn’t take up too much room on the counter. The ‘peek’ function is by far my favorite feature, so the cooking doesn’t have to stop while you check the doneness of your bread.
I choose this toaster for contemporary style, but very soon after i start to us it, i found out the toaster missing one base ‘foot’ what makes it unstable. I sent it back and get new one without defects. The toaster works good, i wish it more emphasis on the dial indicator – very hard to see.
So i’ve gone through too many toasters – its slightly ridiculous. They either break, don’t toast, toast too much, or just plain suck. How the delonghi kmix is different then all other toasters i’ve used:1 – the temperature gauge is accurate, consistent and easy to use. 2 – the ‘pop up check’ lever works well – first one that i’ve seen that has something this useful3 – color looks greatoverall – i would recommend this toaster for anyone looking to buy one.
I love the color, it looks so nice against my grey , silver decor. Also, it toasts very nice, very even.
Others have complained about it burning the toast, but i find if you turn the knob to a lower setting it works great. My only quibble is that the slots aren’t very long, so if you like (for example) sourdough toast, it won’t fit in here. Maybe it’s the bread god’s way of saying eat less bread 🙂 anyway it works fine and is darn cute to look at too.
This is a great addition to the kitchen with attitude. The slots are about 1 inch wide and 5 inches long which appears to be wider than the average toaster. The toasts pops up after it is done but there is no ‘ding’ or alarm sound which i am okay with anyway. The lever is heavy duty rubber around solid metal which should last the life of the toaster. The crumb tray which is also metal is easy to pull out and clean. The cord is about three feet in length. It has a nice convenient cord wrap under the toaster to keep the cord out of the way. It has a nice ‘peek’ feature which lets you check on the progress of your toast without stopping it, all you have to do is lift the lever to check on it.
Nice looking, kinda retro-style toaster. Didn’t get a chance to see how it works, though, because the pop-down lever was broken straight outta the box. But amazon took it back no problem, so kudos to them.
The color is definitely more magenta than hot pink. The color that shows up on my ipad is exactly the color of the actual toaster. The toaster works ok, but it is missing a lot of functionality and it doesn’t toast evenly. Also, i find it very difficult to read the markings on the toaster, they are small and the symbols and the background are both silver. Because i bought this strictly for the color, and it was a great deal, i am happy with the purchase.
I bought this toaster for its beauty. I have to keep it on the lowest setting, otherwise it will burn my toast and pop tarts. I haven’t tried toasting anything frozen yet; maybe then i will raise the temperature setting. Either way, i love my toaster.
Looks beautiful on the counter. Just a little too big for a toaster.
I didn’t know toasters could be so beautiful, but this one is. Arrived almost before i ordered it.
Works great, its a beautiful color, we love it.
It makes evenly browned toast. Very happy with this purchase.
I’m happy with my new toaster. The only thing i wish is that the slots were a little longer. It toasts evenly and i very much like the bun warmer.
