This Hamilton Beach toaster has a convenient warm mode that keeps toasted items warm for an additional 60 seconds. The auto shut-off makes it safe and easy to operate, and the cancel button lets you stop the cycle mid-way through. Other great features include a defrost function and shade settings that let you toast to the perfect level with just a turn of the dial. The bagel setting increases heat of the inside element and decreases the heat of the outside element, so the cut side of the bagel is toasted perfectly and the top is warmed without burning. The 2-slice toaster has a crumb tray that slides out and the cord is retractable so it looks nice and neat sitting on your countertop.
