Tired of living with toasters that won't fit a slice of Jewish rye bread, I went in search of an affordable toaster with longer slots. Most toasters these days have slots that are wide enough to handle bagels, but in order to toast rye bread, you have to toast it sideways, toasting one half and then flipping it over to toast the other half. The result is usually overdone in the middle, underdone on both ends. The slots on this toaster are 5-3/4" long, which is between 1/4" and 3/4" longer than others I've seen. Works great so far! Just like toasters from the 1960's, it has to be cleaned over the sink. A removable crumb tray would make cleaning a bit easier. Unlike toasters from the 1960's, it's made in China, so I hope it lasts.
Update 06/26/2012: Toaster still works great for me! My favorite rye bread fits perfectly in the longer slots. However, some Jewish rye bread slices are larger than 5-3/4", so you may want to measure a slice of your favorite bread before ordering.
