Black & Decker T2560B Review


Users like the fast toasting afforded by this toaster, as well as the wide slots and self-centering toast racks. The toaster has defrost, bagel, and cancel functions, as well as good browning controls, a removable crumb tray and a stay-cool exterior.

The Black & Decker T2560B 2-Slice Toaster offers value for your money. Consumers like the reliability and the design aesthetic, and don't seem to mind a price tag that sits at the higher end of the Cheapism niche.

Several features and performance attributes find favor with consumers in Black & Decker T2560B reviews. For one, the plastic housing (available mostly in black) actually stays cool to the touch and reviews on Epinions say the casing feels thicker and more substantial than that found on other cheap toasters, although one user posting on Amazon describes the housing as insubstantial. Users also appreciate the self-adjusting extra-wide toast slots that they say accommodates even the largest and thickest bagels. Sticking with the bagels theme, consumers are high on the special bagel setting, which toasts the cut side and warms the outer side, as well as the defrost function. Reviews also note that the five browning settings seem to be accurate, and users comment favorably on the even and relatively quick toasting, be it a bagel, a waffle, or a plain old piece of bread.

Other essential features earning shout-outs in Black & Decker T2560B reviews on Epinions and Amazon include the cancel function (in case the toast starts getting too dark), the easy-to-clean removable crumb tray, and the LED light that tells you when the toaster is on. The Black & Decker T2560B (starting at $22, Amazon) weighs six pounds, measures about 13x8.5x9 inches, and has a wrap-around cord.

All in all, the wide range of features on the Black & Decker T2560B, its attractive styling and good functionality, plus the one-year limited warranty make this toaster a good buy for the price.
