We purchased the Metal Classic CPT-180 4-slice toaster recently. It's absolutely awesome to use. We are enjoying this item immensely. We keep the dial on it between "3" & "4" & that's all we need to do with it as the toast and/orbagels are done to perfection. There's no issues or complaints whatsoever in that department with it. This product looks great on the counter too. It's as neat as a pin in the corner & also, just so you know this; it does NOT get the fingerprints all over it unlike other metal products that seem to have issues with that stuff, believe me it's fine. I would not get any other type BUT a Cuisinart from now on after this purchase. That shows you how pleased we are with this particular product as I very rarely write up reviews. I wanted to make sure you guys knew that this toaster is definitely a good one to buy, no doubt about it. We are extremely happy we went with this one, so don't hesitate, just get it, it's a done deal in my book.
