The Pro-Line has this premium look that's reminiscent of old-fashioned KitchenAid mixers. It also reminded me of an airplane. It's sleek, simple and yet feels powerful. As far as style goes, it certainly has the chops to be a high-end machine and would be right at home in any designer kitchen.

The preset buttons give somewhat standard options, and you can use the slider to select your preferred level of darkness. The row of lights indicates your preference and blinks away while toasting to act as a countdown timer.

Once you put in your bread, the KitchenAid will sense the weight and lower it into the slot for you, starting automatically. Because of its weight sensor, it also recognizes when you don't come get your toast right away and will bring it back into the slot and keep it warm for you.

A medium cycle finished in 2 minutes and 40 seconds, but the toast turned out a little too light for medium.

Medium wasn't enough to even gently brown the bagels.
