Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 2-Slice Toaster


Maybe that's the point, though. Nobody wants to waste time thinking about toasters, but that doesn't mean we don't want one that works well sitting on our kitchen counter. To that end, the CNET Appliances team is here to help. We spent a good work week...

The Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome Toaster did an acceptable job in our tests, showing no major weaknesses. As cheap toasters go, it's one that gets the job done.

The Classic Chrome tended to overcook slightly at medium settings. Also, the design left us unimpressed.

Even if you don't expect much from your toaster, you can do better than this.

I bought my Hamilton Beach 22600 2-slice Toaster, about two years ago, from Wal-mart. I was coned into buying this attractive, reasonable priced toaster, mainly because of it's appearance.

Attractive, strong and reliable

Toasts one side, button release instead of lever release, Hard to keep clean

Warning! Will toast your fingers!


I bought this machine because of its name I expected a quality product even if expensive. In reality, not only I got a cheap piece of junk made in China, but also an hazard to one's and one's family safety! I can't believe that a company of the ...

Toasts, if you can get your bread out

Extreme danger: gets really hot and the short power cord prevents safe positioning

Great Toaster!


I bought this toaster about 1 year ago at a discount big box store here in Pittsburgh, Big Lots (not sure if they area national chain). I was moving into a new place and just needed to stock up on cheap basics. Typically, I am a big proponent of the...

Cool features, never overheats, accurate toasting

Stainless steel is not that easy to get clean - look streaky

A really nice toaster


I bout this toaster to finally replace the one that my husband had continually keep fixing (he is persistent). I am really happy with this toaster.

Great toaster with great features, attractive and easy to use

Gets hot... but come on, it's metal

Looks neat, but...


I bought this toaster a little over a year ago. I don't toast things very often, perhaps twice a week, but already the inner elements are dimming, and things now get toasted unevenly.

Nice styling, useful features

Doesn't work very well

good toaster, silly unnecessary features


This toaster works well, but clearly it was designed for people who are easily impressed. You know, the people who think a $7 faux antique picture frame looks nice. The people who pay a premium in boutique stores for imitation shabby chic when they...

even toasting, big slots, bagel function, looks nice, sounds nice

unnecessary features, eject by button rather than lever

Overall good toaster


I received this toaster as a wedding gift and we have had no problems with it. It's a nice looking toaster for the price and it does it's job. The bagel feature is great - it always toasts them to perfection. I would recommend this toaster.

Styling, function

Chrome requires polishing to keep the finger prints off

We've had ours less than a year. By the time the toast pops up, it's not done so we have to pop it down a second time. The problem is it doesn't pop up automatically when you do this, so you have to closely monitor the toast. Well, today we left the...

It's shiny

It could burn your house down
