I purchased this toaster last year about this time of year from Wal Mart..it has gotten pretty warm at times but nothing we were alarmed about..Last night we'd gone to bed and within the hour our kitchen filled with smoke and the alarms went off..the smoke was so heavy going to celing we thought and the fireman thought it was our ceiling fan/light..

Nope, it was our toaster on fire..hadn't been used in 2 days so we never gave it a thought with the smoke up near ceiling..it melted stuff around it and a bag of rolls setting by it became part of it..

I've heard of appliances starting on their own but never experienced it..from now on every appliance not in use will be unplugged..But the makers of this DURABRAND TOASTER..Model #TS-5221..should recall and make sure what they are making in the future does not do this..we were lucky that it is only us..what if our children or grandchildren had been alone here..BE AWARE PLEASE
