    Adequate, nothing special

    Based on the brand and my previous experience with it, I thought for sure this would be a great toaster. I am disappointed to say it is adequate at best and therefore, very over priced. Yes, it looks nice, but it is cheaply made. I am glad that I bought extended warranty coverage because I think that may be beneficial in this product's case. The levers do not push down easily. But that isn't my greatest concern. The knobs on the front that adjust for toast light/dark are very cheaply made. They turn very easily and do not seem sturdy. I would have expected that they would fall into a notch and that it would take some effort to move it to another level. If not careful, you can inadvertently change your level of toasting just by bumping or brushing against the knob. On a six point toasting scale, I toasted an English muffin at 3 and it didn't even brown. I may end up returning this. It is definitely not worth the money. I am quite disappointed, especially since the Cuisinart brand is touted to be a quality brand product.

    Great toaster, worth every penny you pay for it

    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.

    I was initially skeptical about spending $65 for a toaster, but my husband and I were tired of trying to share our old two-slicer and it was time to upgrade. We have now had this for a couple years and I can say it works well and is still performing. I like the defrost option, and the ability to accommodate bagels, buns etc. We also wanted separate controls for each side which this has, since I like darker toast than he does. The only negative comment I have is that I would agree with a previous reviewer that the outer and inner sides don't toast completely evenly. I have solved this by undertoasting a bit and then flipping over and toasting a bit longer. I do watch it though, which not everone is going to want to do. It's also nice that it has a reheat option, if you jump the gun while you're cooking your eggs. Overall great value for the price, and impressed that it still works well after two years of regular use.

    Nice Simple Toaster

    I had been wanting the A Bit More toaster instead of another basic toaster but the reviews on the A bit more toaster were way too variable, so much that it made me question getting it if it may in fact stop working after a few months. So instead I went with this toaster after reading some reviews that put this one neck and neck with A Bit More toaster by Breville. This one is a very simple toaster that gets the job done without being super complex or difficult to operate. The capacity for extra toast is great for fixing sandwiches or breakfast for my spouse without having to wait on two slices to get done in a standard two slices toaster. Plus the ability to toast one side for a longer or shorter amount of time from the other side is great. So far I'm very happy with my choice of toaster, I couldn't justify paying $50 more for the A Bit More toaster over this one, if you really want that feature, this toaster brand does have a newer model that adds it.

    I was looking for a good four slice toaster and this one has fit the bill nicely. It does toast, frozen waffles, and bagels quite well, although I'm still learning what setting each should be on to avoid over or under cooking them. It does disappoint when it comes to larger slices of bread like sourdough, but I knew this when I bought it. For the price, it's a good toaster and someday I may decide to upgrade to a more expensive four-slice toaster that accommodates large bread slices. Oh, there is a weird smell when toasting for a few days. It didn't seem to transfer to the bread I was toasting, but it almost smells like there was plastic inside the toaster being burned. I double checked and there wasn't actually any burnt plastic, but it took a few days for the smell to stop.

    Great Toaster!

    I eat alot of toast so I have gone through many of the $15 toasters. I wanted to buy a better quality toaster with features not found on the inexpensive toasters. I wanted wide openings, even toasting, a nice appearance and overall quality. I even got bonuses like the one sided toasting and the push button pop-up. i have used Cuisinart products in the past and have had good luck with their performance and quality so I decided to bite the bullet and put out the bucks for this toaster. I have used it now for about 5 or 6 months and I have not been disappointed. It is really high-tech and I am very pleased. I would highly recommend this toaster.

    4 Is Better Than 2

    Buying a toaster is not something people get too excited about, but this is a good one. Able to toast up to 4 slices instead of the standard 2 is a nice option for this price point. Cuisinart is a solid manufacture and we have numerous products under the Brand. Looks sleek, wide slots, not too large for my cabinet for storage. The only “negative” I’d comment on is that the dial for the temp settings is difficult to read. Black on black. I’d recommend they use a red dot to let the user know where the dial is toasting when it’s turned. We’ve burned some things and under toasted others. Best Buy was $20 less than Crate & Barrel for the same model. That’s a lot of bread.

    I purchased this item and used it three times and realized it wasn't working properly. At least not as it was intended to. It wouldn't toast a slice of bread correctly. I'd have to run it through the process twice, and then it would be overdone.I tried different settings, but to no avail. So, I returned it and chose to give the same item, only replaced, a second chance. The second toaster works much better than the first. It still, in MY opinion, doesn't do as I expect a toaster should, but I'm satisfied enough to keep this one. PERHAPS, as it gets broken in it will act correctly!? :-)

    High-Quality Toaster

    I must admit I had some sticker shock at the price; it got excellent reviews, so I decided to purchase. Great decision! The bagel function works as described. The '2 toasters in one' is perfect. The controls are easy to use. Both light/dark dials on this toaster work in such a way, that if the left dial & right dial are set on the same #, the degree of toasting is the same on either side. It is very sturdy and looks great in the kitchen. If you need to do consecutive toasting on one side or the other, the degree of toasting remains consistent (older toasters worked fine for the first piece of toast, but would not toast to the same degree for consecutive pieces of bread).

    As far as toasters go, this is pretty good. Maybe a bit pricey for a toaster. We moved up to a 4-slice, and it's nice as my wife likes her toast really dark and I'm always forgetting to change the setting first thing in the morning when making the kids' breakfast. So now we each have our own side :-) And the 4-slice isn't that much bigger than a 2-slice, The "defrost" setting is perfect for frozen breakfast items like Toaster Strudels. Toast comes out nice and even too. Does OK on bagels, though I'm not sure what the bagel setting does, as it still seems to toast both sides. The finish does pick up fingerprints and smudges, if that's important to you.

    We bought this toaster a couple months ago and have used it sparingly -- it has nothing to do with the toaster's performance and everything to do with our family of 5 not being frequent bread eaters. However, we've found its controls and 4-slice design very convenient. We are neither picky eaters nor bagel aficionados, so we haven't the critiques of those who wish this model to be a $500, esoteric creation. We're happy with our Cuisinart and the sale price we paid for it. Just be aware that the inside and outside of any slice might pop up with ever so slightly darker/lighter shades.

    It was time to replace our 2 piece toaster. We use ours every single day. After researching many 4 piece toasters we decided to go with this one. The first one we received had a large dent on it, but our local best buy was able to replace it with one that was not damaged. It toasts our bread perfectly, (unlike our old one.) My husband likes his lightly toasted- level 2 I like mine a little toastier - 3.5 The only downside is the removable trays, the trays themselves work as they should, but what bothers me is how not all crumbs fall on the trays. It's hard to get some of the ones stuck on the small landing below the rack. All in all, a great toaster.

    Many have stated slots aren't wide enough (true). Spring latch on one side failed after a year. Spring latch on the other side failed a year later. Looks cool on the outside but inside it's just cheap components. I'm currently looking at either a toaster oven or getting a decent toaster from a restaurant supply store. The restaurant supply store model may cost twice as much but at least it'll last longer and I can get it repaired if needed.

    I read numerous reviews before choosing this toaster and actually was going to order one which was a lot more expensive, but when I went in the local Best Buy store, they had this one in stock and I looked at all the great reviews it had and decided to get it instead. I'm glad I did because it works great! It is easy to fine tune the adjustments so that you can get the exact results you want for each side. Also love the defrost since we often keep bread and english muffins in the freezer, and the keep warm function works well too. Overall a great toaster!

    A big surprise for a small appliance

    We were in need of a new toaster. Our previous one lasted eighteen months. We had a toaster oven which we used for a few weeks without satisfaction. After looking at several toasters and thinking they were all the same, we bought this toaster. We were impressed right away. The style fits our renovated kitchen and it is so much faster and more accurate than we thought possible. GREAT PURCHASE/PRODUCT.

    Not even my 81 year old mother, who will probably burn the house down one day, can burn toast in this toaster! It evenly toasts. I can have lightly browned toast and she can have dark toast... no need to toast twice, try to guess and make it pop up, etc . We hand slice bread so it can handle thick slices of bread, bagels and that sort of thing with no problem. Before, she would toast something twice and on the third try, attempt to guess when it was right and suddenly there would be smoke and it was a disaster. This one does it right the first time.

    I like the toaster it does what it says! But always seems to burn my waffles a little more from one side for some reason. And I love waffles. I eat them anyway so I guess this toaster does the job. Would i recommend to someone who is very picky on how it toasts your waffles maybe not. But for me it does it’s job alright. At the end of the day I eat the darn waffles anyway.

    I am so pleased with all of the Cuisinart kitchen products I have purchased over the years, and this toaster is no exception. It heats bread slices, bagels and frozen waffles so evenly and there is the one slice option as well. It is solid and I like the vintage look. It is definitely worth spending more to have something that will stand up to frequent use. Most things these days don't seem built to last, but this toaster is a keeper!

    This is the only 4 slice toaster Best Buy offers. It is appealing to look at. So I tried it. The left dial was loose and you couldn't set it accurately. Then none of the 4 slots toasted evenly. Took it back and I'm now on the hunt again for a good 4 slice toaster. Complete waste of time! Sad to say I'M not happy with this outcome! =(

    Read many reviews from different retail stores. Chose the Cuisinart 4 slice toaster based on reviews, appearance, price and brand. I am 100% happy with it. Toasts perfectly, Toasts quickly. Defrosts. Does what it is supposed to do. Looks nice and does not take up a lot of space. Best Buy even matched a lower price I found.
