Oh, gosh! Our toaster was fifteen years old, and we hadn’t realized just how old it had gotten! This little baby does what it should (toasts beautifully), looks GREAT, and is SO easy to clean! I was never sure where I had our other toaster set, as I couldn’t see where the control was set – the control on this is nice and clear, and it comes with a Cheat Sheet suggesting where you should set it depending on what you are trying to toast! I had never heard of Keenstone, but am very happy with their quality! Oh, and the toaster arrived the day after we ordered it! Double score!
This toaster works great! I haven’t had any issues with it besides working very well; it even has a defrost feature which comes in very handy b/c I keep my GF bread in the freezer as I don’t eat bread every day. The toaster is very attractive and adds a little fun to my counter top! I really am glad I decided to buy something different than the standard black or stainless for a change. I like everything about this toaster. I waited six months (plus) to write my review so I could be sure it was just as good as time went by. My husband uses the toaster every day, so it has been used a lot. So far we haven’t had any scratches or blemishes. It is holding up just fine! Fun toaster that suits us perfectly!
I have to say when I started my search for the perfect toaster on Amazon, it took me a long time to finally settle on this one but I’m glad I did. I was even considering getting something as expensive as the SMEG before, but for what it is, you definitely don’t need to spend that much money. This toaster was super easy to use. The guidance it provided about the different toast levels were accurate and I’ve never had a bad piece of toast following it so far. Not to mention, it is also a pretty looking toaster. If you don’t need anything too fancy, just want something that works and looks nice on your counter, seriously look no further! The only thing I will say to take with a grain of salt on this review is that I’ve only been using it for about a month now so I still have to see how it withstands the test of time.
I got a great price on this and needed to upgrade my banged up little toaster. I love the retro/vintage color and style. Even better, it does a much better job toasting than what I had-all the way to the edges of the bread and is uniform. I mean, it’s toast, it’s not hard but I’m always glad when cute meets job well done.

I bought this for my mother-in-law (in her 90’s). She likes the retro design which is very simple and elegant. It looks as nice as the pictures and does not have a cheap feel. The rounded and flush surfaces should be easy to clean. Also the controls are easy for her to use, nothing digital. Turn the knob for light or dark toast, press the lever. The bagel feature is nice. It turns off the center elements so you can toast only the soft side of a bagel or English muffin. The buttons illuminate red when selected. The only slight hiccup is that the “cancel” button illuminates when the toaster is on, and this was a bit confusing to her. Toasts nicely, a bit lighter at the top like most toasters. A bit pricey for a toaster but in my case I think money well spent.
This toaster could probably cost $20 and be the exact same thing. It’s a fairly basic toaster, with very basis functions. It’s very sturdy and looks great. I think you are paying for the cuteness and fresh look, which for us was worth it since it lives on our counter.So far we are really happy with it. It’s easy to clean and the different settings work pretty great! It’s nice it has a defrost function as well.I would recommend it but know you aren’t getting anything fancy.
I always found it pointless to toast bread or bagels in a big toaster oven when you can have a compact, old-fashioned toaster that does the job even better. And as many people have said, this toaster is adorable! I have the red one that looks very snazzy on my black countertop. It’s also easy to clean. Normally, I just clean off the crumb tray, but if crumbs have adhered to the elements, I use a long, thin brush made for glass straws. Don’t scrub; just a very light brush will do.Just in case anyone is wondering, the bagel function will light up the two outside elements, so remember to put your bagel in with the cut side facing that way.The only thing — and this is true of every toaster — is that the heat rises, so try to use it clear of your kitchen cabinets unless you want them to warm up.

I love this toaster. The bread comes out evenly toasted. Very easy to clean pull out tray. My old toaster had a drop lid type thing, where you would have to hold the toaster over the garbage can, and release the door so the crumbs would fall out. It also has a place on the bottom, to wind the cord. There is also a frozen bread button. If you are toasting something that is short, when it pops up, you can push the lever to make it come up a bit more to the top. This also seems very well made, and it looks great, sort of retro. I would highly recommend this toaster.

Does exactly what you expect it to. Toast bread. Numbered shades 1-5 color graph is consistent with what you get. Has bagel setting however will only adequately fit thin bagels. For the price and the cute retro look it’s a worthy purchase for your Airbnb, beach house etc. if your only springing for one toaster and your going to toast something on the daily spring for a Breville model or better.

This toaster is HOT in more ways than one. It’s as sexy as a ‘56 Chevy. Has a vintage look. It’s display-worthy and has a home on our countertop (our old toaster lived out of view in a pull-out drawer). Great value for the price. Love the features and ease of cleaning. My bagel-loving husband is happy.
This toaster seems very well made by a company that cares about it’s product. Not only does the toaster have a lovely solid retro design and color, it functions well. And…….here’s the best part………. just in case you have never used a toaster before, an informational card is enclosed that shows you how brown your toast might come out at each setting. It’s so beautifully done, I now have it hanging on my fridge because it makes me smile. On one side, each setting is used with white bread, non sugary and on the reverse side, you can see the slightly different shades of brown with sugary white bread. I don’t eat white bread and I keep my Dave’s Killer bread in the freezer so would need a completely different card. But, hey, it shows that this company cares. The quality is top-notch.
What I was looking for is a toaster that toasts bread well, is durable, and looks pleasant. This is just that. I like the blued and chrome design, the toaster works perfectly and comes with a toast guide, setting 3 is the perfect toast for me. It has simple controls and is easy to clean with the pull-out crumb tray. Very happy with this product.

This toaster is very nice looking with a retro look that is right up my alley. I like the blue color and so far it has toasted everything well. I have only toasted white sliced bread, waffles and pop tarts so far, but all have come out perfect. I have had it for five weeks now and I really like it.The downsides of this toaster are that when I first received it and turned it on, it had the worst chemical odor; which it actually said in the owners manual to run it once or twice to get rid of that odor, which actually took running it at least 10-15 times before the odor even began to subside. I honestly wondered if there was a piece of plastic burning in there at first. My only other problem with it is how although it’s really cute, it does seem rather flimsy for around 40 dollars. Looks like something that might be sold at Crate & Barrel or Williams Sonoma, only cheap and flimsy. I haven’t tried cleaning the crumbs from the tray as of yet, but figure it is probably as easy to clean as the next toaster.Overall I think this was a good purchase but will have to wait to see how long it lasts.
Joanne Jewett –
It has worked perfectly fine for pumping out 4 pieces of toast every morning!
Noticed a difference right away from my old toaster. My experimented with slices of bread and English muffin. This toaster definitely toast very evenly on all sides. The dial is accurate. Also the pop-up feature is excellent. The bread pops up high enough to not burn your hands taking it out. It has a crumb tray on the bottom and a cord wrap on the bottom.
This is a great toaster in function and style. It comes with a color chart that shows what color your toast will be at the different settings – never seen that before !The machine seems to be a little slow, but I’m retired so whats a few seconds more?You can feel the quality if the product and the thoughtful design.One issue I have is that the setting indicator on the control is hard to see because its just a raised line the same color as the knob. I will add a silver line if it’s an issue with company
The toaster not only looks great butt toasts the bread evenly on both sides. There is a bagel button also I can’t wait to use. The toaster performs like a much more expensive one, I know I’ve bought those in the past!
I bought this toaster after my old one died and love the fact I could get it in red to match a lot of my kitchen accessories. Best of all, it does a great job on bagels and shows how to toast them so only the inside gets toasted and not the crust. There are many settings which also makes it easier to use and it’s very easy to clean.
Amazon Customer –
Not only is this toaster very well made, its really nice looking. And, included with the toaster, is an insert with photos of what your toast will look like at the different settings. Incredibly, they are right on. An amazing toaster for little money. Fast delivery and well packaged.

I saw this brand when looking for Smeg toasters, which I had recently read about. Smeg is ridiculously overpriced and is basically the same as Keenstone. I always hid my white plastic case toaster away every time after using it, but this one looks so pretty, it’s on my counter all the time. I does a nice job on bagels, toasts the inside without burning the outside, and the degree of brown is easy to adjust for bread and bagels. Love it!
This toaster matches my “seaside” cottage theme perfectly. It looks great and works great. I am very pleased with this purchase. Other than that, it’s a toaster – nothing new to see here. A little pricey for “just a toaster” which is why I never gave it 5 stars across the board; but it makes me smile. And that’s worth it.
Rich G.Rich G. –
Been wanting a nice, quality, good looking toaster for a while now. I was pleasantly surprised at this one. Toasts evenly, the settings for darkness actually change how dark the toast is, and it sounds solid and well built when it pops the toast or bagel up.I’ve used the bagel setting when I toasted bagels, but I didn’t read the instructions so am not really sure what difference it made. That’s on me.
vanessa solomon –
this was such a great toaster. I was skeptical at first about the quality, but it is really good. it also looks great and is easy to clean.
Gentle Reader –
Finally–a more reasonably priced version of the Smeg toaster! Love the design, love the color, works fine. Just wish the logo weren’t so prominently displayed on the front. Have been trying to remove it with goo gone, but no luck. Maybe next time, print it in silver?
I wanted a toaster with some weight to it – not flimsy – with a decent crumb catcher that didn’t fall out all the time like my old toaster. This toaster appears well made and it looks great. It is a retro look – I purchased the light green – it’s very attractive. My only complaint is if you want to stop toasting before time is up, and click the switch, the spring will eject the bread/bagel rather forcefully. As for toasting, I had no problem.
Amazon Customer –
Easy to use and especially enjoy the instruction card that comes with the toaster. It shows how to set it for the color you want, and what position you need to put the product in the slots to get the correct sides of bagel toasted. Easy to use, great toasting results, easy clean, toasts quickly and does not use a lot of electric power. That was a problem with my older toaster in my old house with limited electric outlet power at the same time. Before, I would blow a circuit if I had too many appliances at the same time and this toaster does a good job without pulling much electric power.
I have zero complaints about this toaster. It works exactly as it should and it’s unique. If you want to change things up a little with your kitchen decor, I recommend this toaster. I got the mint green color and I love it. Priced well, worth getting if you need a new toaster and want something different.

Love the ‘jadite green’ color. Matches my other jadite accessories in the kitchen. This toaster is so ‘retro’ cute.My husband really likes the bagel setting for his bagels. The only down side we’ve encountered is the knob for color selection is hard to read. The only indicator pointing to the number is a tiny raised bar, same color as the knob itself, making it quite difficult to see. I plan to hit it with a magic marker to make it more visible. But I shouldn’t have to do that. Also, the ouside of the toaster gets VERY warm during use. Other than that, we love it. And did I say, “It’s SSOOO cute?”
I have returned 2 other toasters for not providing the necessary toasting skills sought from a toaster. One kept flinging food on the counter. The next wouldn’t toast the same twice in a row. Neither had a bagel function that actually toasts the bagel on only 1 side.This toaster is, firstly, stylish and beautiful in my kitchen. I love the retro green color and as an art deco enthusiast, I love how it looks. Secondly, it does a great job toasting. It toasts evenly and the same every time, 1-sided bagel toasting, easy, wide enough slots for my homemade bread and bagel halves, and a nice pop-up that doesn’t try to throw toast at me.I do wish the dial were different. It’s difficult to see where the pointer is and the raised portion on the knob that can be felt is on the front of the knob, not on the side, where you’re finger would feel it when adjusting the amount of toasting.I’m loving my new retro toaster and glad that the 3rd time was a charm.
Very pleased and happy with my purchase. Works great and I love the various settings for regular toast all the way to slightly burnt and crispy toast. Love the retro look as well. This was priced right and was not expensive, very affordable. Fits perfectly on my kitchen sink and gets used every day for my morning sunny side up egg that I put on top of the toast. A terrific breakfast made with the toaster. I can recommend this terrific item.

I LOVE this toaster.Finally a toaster that fits a BIG bagel fully and toasts bread fully on the first try. It takes Texas toast and long specialty bread.I love the look and features. The bagel feature works as expected and the cancel is a nice option.Before I used it to toast anything, I set it on 1 and let the toaster “toast” … nothing. Just to let the elements get warmed up and make sure they all worked as expected.Then, just have to find the right setting. I’m a 3.Way better than my Breville or Kitchen Aid!!
This is probably the best-looking toaster I’ve ever owned. Love the “Retro” Color (Aqua Blue). Does a very good job on all types of breads. Be aware that the pictorial “Toasting Guide” that was designed to help you select the proper dial setting, varies with the type of bread or bagel you’re toasting. So you’ll have to get your own feel for the settings. Aside from that, I’m very pleased with the product.

I love this toaster. I’m very happy with it. I did have a problem at first. My husband got it for our anniversary. Who know the traditional gift for the 6th wedding anniversary was a toaster?! For no known reason it stopped working. It was beyond the 30 day warranty. They were very proactive and immediately replaced the toaster. They were very great about it. The new toaster is great and working beautifully. I’m very happy with it.
A. Whelan –
Great toaster! I refused to spend $200. So many toasters have negative reviews that I became disheartened. Based on dozens of Amazon reviews, plus googling for “best toasters” for months, I bit the bullet and ordered this one. I wish a black one were available, but the red one is a little jazzy! I’ve toasted homemade bread, specialty bakery thick-sliced bread, thin-sliced rye. No complaints!

I got really drunk for the first time and ordered this after ranting about how our toaster oven sucks at toasting. Its my favorite color and it works really well. It toasts great and it looks very nice. I wasn’t expecting a package (I didn’t remember ordering it) so I was delightfully surprised when it arrived. My boyfriend also approved of the purchase, and was happy to know if I ever get drunk again he doesn’t have to hear me complain about burned/uncooked toast for over 40 minutes. We had a good laugh after it arrived, and joked about it for about a month afterwards. It also toasts bagels better than any toaster I’ve ever had which is nice because we eat a lot of rasin cinnamon bagels. Easily one of the best purchases I’ve ever made, and I don’t even remember doing it. I would definitely recommend this toaster.

Now that I’ve had this product for 6 months, I felt good writing a review. My daughter loves toast and frozen waffles, so I use the toaster at least once a day. For the first month I could smell plastic as it warmed up, but it faded with every use and I don’t have that problem anymore. It’s not very large, and fits well in my small kitchen. It’s easy to clean, and overall I’m very happy for the price. I did have an issue with a pop tart sliding down between the slats, so be careful with pop tarts and place them carefully—if not you’ll have to turn the toaster sideways and shimmy it out. 10/10 would recommend!!

It’s adorable! I love it!
JESSE WOJCIECHOWSKIJESSE WOJCIECHOWSKI –
I really love this toaster for two reasons. It’s easy to keep clean from the outside. Meaning there are lots of smooth surfaces and the point when the toast pops up is quiet and not very aggressive. My toast doesn’t fly up in the air like my last one I replaced! In my opinion the color is spot on for my décor, etc. I’ll call it, “Tomato Red”.
The packaging for this was great. Boxed and wrapped well. The entire household is a fan of the look. A little retro, a little modern. The color is lovely, matches the rest of our decor well. Toasts evenly and the controls are sensitive enough. Very pleased with this purchase. A little extra nice look instead of stainless steel. Really pleased with our purchase
It looks so high end to me. The price was great.
The Polka Dot Addict –
This retro red toaster is absolutely perfect for our vintage kitchen!Lots of great features plus a few extra things that arrive with the toaster. My favorites are:1. A handy, full color toasting guide so you know what setting to place the toaster on to achieve your personal preference in level of darkness. Hooray for perfect slices – every time!2. The top of the toaster has a picture reminder of which direction to place bagel slices in, for best results.3. The push-down lever has an added feature that enables you to manually give an extra “lift” to toasted items at the end of the toasting cycle, if the item is on the smaller side and not be easily grasped when it pops up. Yessss! No more risking electric shock from the use of a fork or knife or tongs !
This toaster is definitely worth the little extra money. It’s quality is top-notch, sturdy construction and toasts perfectly. Lever goes down nice and the toast pops up higher than normal which is nice for an English muffin. The defrost feature works nicely for frozen waffles. I haven’t tried bagels yet but don’t anticipate any difference in quality. The slots are standard length, so Italian or deli rye breads will stick out a smidgy. But for me it wasn’t a big deal. It fits perfectly in our kitchen cupboard (I’m not one for lots of counter appliances). It’s a little heavier than a typical toaster which I like. Doesn’t slide around on counter. Bottom line: I love it! It’s super cute and I’m glad I chose this one over some others. Totally recommend it!!

This is a great toaster for the money. I just could not justify spending way over $100.00 to toast an English muffin or one piece of toast. I have had this now for a couple of weeks and it does exactly what it should do.One caveat: if toasting one slice booth sides will not be even. But this happens with more expensive toasters too. A plus is the manufacturer includes a nice chart in color showing what settings to use for both one slice and two slices. I bought this in red and it is as cute as can be. Not often you find looks and function together in a product.
I purchased this toaster hoping that it would be both aesthetivally pleasing and equally functional. I was very pleased when it arrived to fin that its fit, finish, and build quality do not disappoint. I was pleasantly suprised that it has some weight to it which makes it feel more quality built.The color and design are wonderfully retro without appearing cheap, the buttons and toast depressor feel well made too.It also came with these neat sheets for helping really get your toast the way you like. I thought they were funny at first but I actually appreciate them as a nice touch in adding value to the unit.So how does it toast? Perfectly. Its hard to imagine something as simple as a toaster needing an operation review, but clearly not all products are made equally these days. I’m very pleased with how it works. And my daily toast has been exactly as desired since I got it.I would recommend this toaster to anyone looking for a little flair in the kitchen to an otherwise typically boring appliance!
I usually buy a toaster for function only. This time I decided to buy one that was so adorable that I wasn’t too concerned about the function. Most toasters I have bought did not perform well. Always one side did not toast well or I had to turn the bread mid way to get an even brown.This toaster so far has been cute AND it toast perfectly. No mid way turning, even color and perfect toasting. I have had it for two weeks and I keep waiting for it stop working like most of all the others I have had. I’ll post an update if things change, so for now 5 stars great appliance.
Tax Mechanic (Ret.) –
The Keenstone Retro toaster is solidly constructed. I hadn’t realized with the appliance it replaced that a quality toaster needs to have a heating element on both sides of a slot! The Keystone toasts bread in easily controlled increments, and produces consistent results. The “retro look” is not the principal reason why I bought it, but now I have to admit that the Keystone really enhances the appearance of my “retro” galley-type kitchen.
David W –
I’ve toasted bread and bagels and it handled both beautifully. I’ve never eaten a bagel under bagel mode and I just say I’d been missing out. It toasts the outside and left the inside nice and soft. It was a pleasant experience to get that initial crunch as you bite into the bagel and then got soft chewy bread on the inside. Yums.

Up until now I have been using a nasty toaster oven. Got this new little retro toaster and it works great it looks amazing and the slots are wide enough for bagels
I wanted a white toaster to match my all white kitchen and this one really looks great and makes perfect toast. Comes with a chart that shows how the toast will look on each setting. It shows how regular bread will look and how sugary sweet bread will be toasted. It’s very accurate. It also shows how it will look for both types of bread when you are only toasting one slice of bread: one slice means the toast will be slightly lighter on one side of the bread. No downsides to this toaster and I’m happy with the purchase.
Hey, it’s a toaster so sometimes you have to adjust settings. Sometimes you need to toast half way then pop it out and turn it around to get even toasting. Even the instructions reveal this truth. Ha! An extra star then for honesty and transparency! So appealing, too. Reminds me of our vintage 50s – 60s cars with their rounded corners, funny button shapes and pastel colors. I sense that it has the integrity to last a few years but time will tell. Looks great in my mcm Florida home. It makes me happy to look at this.By the way, yes, it’s more of a mint – more green than blue. Which is exactly what I was hoping for!
James W. Daubney –
We use this at our camper and love it. I was replacing a $7 toaster I bought at walmart when I still tented. Now we have a 37′ Travel trailer. This toaster works as expected and looks nice. I mean….seriously it’s just a toaster, but it works fine and looks good.

I had my last toaster for more than 20 years. I’munsure on how the toaster market got so expensive, but I actually love my new toaster. The color is fun, and it toasts well. As an added point of enjoyment, as it comes to toaster joy, I loved the toasting guide that came with this toaster. It was good fun, and I took a picture so I could describe how I like my toast at restaurants. Lol! No regrets buying this toaster and would recommend.
I was hesitant buying this: I was afraid all the positive reviews were based on looks and colors.However I am so glad I did. I love this little toaster. By far the best toaster I have had in 15 years. Has bagel and defrost settings, and toasts evenly on both sides.I use it at the “3” level and am happy every time. The “done” beep is not super loud or annoying.Remember to run it a few times before you put food in there. There is the “new” burn off smell: I ran mine at a “5” three times before using it with food and everything was fine.
Patricia Keller –
My old toaster gave up on me so I had to get a new one. After looking at a few here on Amazon, i decided on this one. The color attracted my attention because it goes w/ my kitchen decor. It works very well. Once I got the dial properly set to my desired doneness, every slice of toast came out exactly how I like them!! I am very pleased with my purchase !
Purchased a very expensive 4 slice toaster earlier this year, and although it was a beautiful toaster with all kinds of great features, we decided it was a bit big, heavy and a bit cumbersome for us, “seniors”. I looked further for something easier to use and found this toaster.It performs just wonderfully and we have had good experience with the way the toaster works for us. It does everything a good toaster should do, without the weight and space requirements.UPDATE… After a few months of use, I am finding the blue paint to be easily scratched and our not too old toaster covered with small handling scratches. It’s a bit disappointing, but it hasn’t impacted the performance of the toaster whatsoever.
I LOVE this toaster!! I don’t like clutter and I usually don’t put stuff out on my counters but this toaster is too cute to tuck away!! I wanted a Smeg toaster for a long time but couldn’t justify spending that much money on a toaster. This one is just as cute and besides being cute the toaster works great. If you are looking for a cute, retro toaster this is it!
First toaster in a long time. Works exactly as described. The toaster is so clean you can even see your reflection on it. One thing I wasn’t aware of was the toaster itself gets hot after toasting. This is an issue for me primarily b/c I planned to use it and put it away once I was done. Just use mitts after you toast something if you plan on touching the toaster for any reason.
This is the second purchase of this toaster brand/color…I have had one for more than a year and enjoy it so much, toast so many breads, English muffins, even warm up a pita in it…and a friend came by and so she got one for a gift from me…not only does the toaster work well, but it perks up an otherwise somewhat “normal” kitchen. And, it’s working as well today as it did the day I got it; my friend is also enjoying her toaster, as well.

I purchased this toaster because my last one died. It was red too. I like the shape and the button on this one and it works well every morning as I cook my bread in the morning. I believe it is a little expensive but well worth the price. It arrived in a box well packaged and in good shape. I would purchase it again.
I have a large toaster oven, but I usually didn’t bother toasting my bread because it was too much trouble to take the cover off, remove the trays, and toast bread in the oven. It took a long time to toast in such a large oven. This little toaster is adorable, but more important, it gets the job done quickly and efficiently. My house is 92 years old, and my kitchen is definitely retro, with red formica counter tops. This little toaster looks wonderful, and does a great job toasting. It looks great sitting on my 1948 Tappan Deluxe stove!
