Comment from Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. 10/18/2011
We have taken this report and expression of dissatisfaction very seriously. We are very sorry this consumer reports having a negative experience with one of our products, as we try hard to please consumers who have shown their trust by bringing our products into their homes. We encourage our customers to contact our Consumer Affairs Department at 1.800.851.8900 in order to provide information about their experiences.

The consumer has chosen to remain anonymous, which precludes us from interviewing the consumer, examining the product or otherwise verifying the report. Based on the information provided in the report, we note the product is a toaster, not a toaster oven; the model number does not match any of our records; and toast cycles typically last several minutes, so it is not surprising the toaster remains “on for roughly a minute.”

We want consumers to know that every toaster sold by Hamilton Beach complies with the version of American National Standards Institute/Underwriters Laboratories (“ANSI/UL”) Standard 1026: Electric Household Cooking and Food Serving Appliances in effect at the time of its design and manufacture.
