"The Dash Clear View toaster will be sure to turn heads thanks to its stunning and unique design."
While the Dash Clear View toaster will be sure to turn heads thanks to its stunning and unique design, its also a highly functional and well performing toaster as well. With a clear glass window that allows you to watch the toasting process, the Clear View’s sleek design could look great in anybody’s kitchen. However, it is the quality and consistency of it’s toasting performance that is going to make you fall in love with this toaster. Three different cooking functions also means that this toaster is versatile as well as aesthetically satisfying. And at an affordable price of just $35-45, the Dash Clear View really is a steal and you’d be a fool to not consider putting one of these in your kitchen.
Upon first glance, by far the most noteworthy element on the Dash Clear View is its rather distinctive design. While many toasters, despite their differences, share the same standard design of having an opaque exterior preventing you from seeing inside the toaster, the Clear View breaks down these barriers of vision with a transparent glass window. This viewing glass allows you to watch the full process of your toaster cooking bread in a way that barely any toasters. It can be quite fascinating to watch your bread gradually turn into a beautiful piece of toast, and the glass window also enables you to decide exactly when your toast is ready based on your own personal preference, whereas many toasters do not give you this privilege.
The glass window design does mean that the Dash Clear View toaster only has one slot to insert toast into, though there is still enough room in that slot for two slices of bread, as well as foods such as bagels too. Otherwise, the rest of the design is pretty sleek and the lightweight plastic design with stainless steel accents allows for a lightweight feel at just 4.4 pounds. The Clear View comes in three colours: red, black and white, each of which make the toaster look very attractive.
With its unique design, the Dash Clear View does have to be somewhat unconventional in its features too. While most toasters work by using thin wires going across the toaster to help make toast, the transparent nature of the Clear View doesn’t allow for this. Instead, this toaster has two large elements on the bottom of each side that aim to toast bread evenly. The Clear View also has three different function buttons that make it a versatile toaster as well as a great looking one. By pressing one of the three buttons on the right of the glass window, you can select to defrost food, reheat food or toast a bagel. With the dial-controlled shade settings you can also select exactly how dark you want your toast to be, and the see through window lets you decide exactly when your toast is ready to eat, meaning that you should never end up with a piece of toast either too burned or not burned enough.
Another hugely useful feature of the Clear View is its auto-shut off feature, which is hugely helpful in ensuring that the toaster never overheats if its been left on for too long. LED light indicators are another feature that generally add to both the toaster’s fantastic design as well as making it much easier to use and understand. While there aren’t any completely out of this world features on the Dash Clear View toaster that’ll knock your socks off, for the highly affordable asking price, you can definitely get yourself a versatile toaster with enough helpful features to leave you feeling completely fulfilled.
Ease of Use
If anybody was under the impression that the Dash Clear View toaster is just a gimmicky toaster based on its design, it’s fair to say that they’d be somewhat mistaken. In fact, the Clear View makes some of most even and consistent toast out there and can put a lot of more expensive toasters to shame with its high performance standards. The unorthodox toasting mechanism allows for a much more even toast than you would find with many toasters and you’ll be amazed at just how well it can make your toast. Not only that, but the Clear View is consistent in its toasting performance and with the shade control settings as well as the see through glass, you should always be able to make your toast exactly as you like it. While the Clear View is a standout for the quality of its toast, it’s bagel-making ability may leave a bit to be desired and you may find that there are better toasters out there for bagels.
Generally, the Clear View is a really easy toaster to use and its helpful features are very convenient for you and your kitchen. The design of the controls makes using the toaster simple despite its different function buttons. One element of the toaster that is not too convenient, is the removable crumb tray. First off, its positioned quite awkwardly on the toaster meaning that you’ll be forced to move the whole toaster in order to reach it. Also, it can be a pain to remove and you may find that it causes you more stress than its worth. Aside from this, the strong majority of features on the Dash Clear View make using the toaster exceptionally easy and you can tell that Dash did not spend all of their time and effort on the toaster’s design, they actually made it a great toaster as well.
All in all, the Dash Clear View not only excels in being able to turn heads with its stunning design features, but it succeeds in all of the other areas too. While you may suspect that an affordable toaster like this would be lacking in terms of its actual toasting abilities, the Clear View toasters is one of the most consistently effective toasters you can purchase for $35-45. While its not quite perfect; its bagel toasting could be improved, the Dash Clear View is one of the biggest bargains available on the market today.
