    Recently updated the kitchen to all stainless steel appliances, new counter tops, etc. Placed to old toaster (white) on the counter and it just looked out of place, not to mention it was stained and cracked from years of use. Time for a new toaster. Went to Best Buy and picked this model out. It looks great in the kitchen, has wide slots for bagels and some special modes for toasting and thawing. The only thing that could be better about this toast is the length of the slots. Most store bought breads and our bread maker bread slices fit perfectly... but there are those other loaves where the slices are just a bit too long to fit. So we just place them on end and toast most of the slice. If the toaster slots were just another inch longer, this toaster would be perfect. It has great range of adjustment and browns the bread/bagel /pop tart nicely. Wow! Who would have though you could write so much about a toaster?

    Well I had a convection oven die on me, but I was sick of it anyways. Those convection ovens are just too slow to heat up for toast.. you know what you need for toast? A toaster. This is a good looking toaster. That's pretty much it. No frills, nothing special, seems like it has a standard egg timer inside of it. Aside from costing a bit much for a standard toaster, it seems like a good choice. Heats up very quickly, which is great for people always in a hurry, but watchout the outer shell also gets quite hot. But wait that's where its ONE feature comes in, you can raise the lever up to bring your toast closer to the opening. Disregarding that this has been a feature on toasters for a million years, it's nice to have, when it works, but the problem with this specific toaster is that its just too light weight, putting any pressure up on the lever raises the whole toaster more than it does the lever itself, kinda silly. In conclusion: it makes toast, probably costs a bit more than it should, no frills.

    Not if you toast bagels!!

    This toaster looks good and does toast sort of OK. Two negatives - one annoying - the timer knob is too loose - knock the toaster and the timer changes! i.e. you HAVE to adjust the timer every time you toast. Second, and why I am RETURNING it - It does NOT COOK BAGELS correctly - pressing the "bagel" button still has both elements (both sides) on FULL and INCREASES THE COOKING TIME on BOTH SIDES!! That means burnt on both sides if you like toast medium or medium well and don't turn the timer down. If you turn the timer down, you simply get under-done since you can't toast one side only etc.. The "BAGEL" setting should TURN DOWN one side (top/bottom) so they only toast slowly. as they are usually shiny or seeded and burn horribly in this toaster if you want the faces of the bagel toasted/brown.

    The more toaster reviews you read the more confusing it gets. Read reviews of a specific toaster on one website then on another and you think you are looking at two completely different products. So I decided to take a deep breath and order one I like the looks of. Well this happens to be a very decent toaster, browns the bread evenly and consistantly. Did not try toasting more than 3 batches of toasts on the same - light setting and all three batches came out pretty much the same color. Can't ask for much more from a toaster. The slots could be longer though.

    I liked the look of this toaster and decided to purchase based on other reviews. The slots are wide enough to accommodate a bagel, however the release never actually brings the toasted bagel to the surface. I always need to utilize the lever for a little extra lift. I love the feature of the slide out crumb tray for easy cleaning. Since this is stainless steel, it is difficult to keep free of fingerprints. I am constantly wiping it down. Overall this is a decent toaster. Keep in mind you are paying for the Cuisinart name - hence the higher cost

    This toaster is the mack daddy of all toasters....sure, you can spend more or less, but fully functional and easy to use...simple and elegant lines lead to an expectation of the best toasted bread, bagels, and pop tarts. I like the boring, dull finish which reminds me so much of the toasters of the 1960s....I would buy another toaster just like it, but probably wont get the chance to, as this one will last forever...gotta go, time to make some toast.

    The toaster is ok if you do not do a lot of toasting. It will get hot on the outside sides so be careful and for muffins you will have to reach in as even with a little extra lift, they still are below the surface. Also for a medium toast, al little on the dark side, you must turn the dial almost to the limit. We will use it but would rather have another for the price.

    Nice retro look, worked well for 2+ yrs then broke

    This toaster has a nice retro look that matched our stainless steel appliances, and it worked well toasting bread and bagels consistently for 2.5 years. The defrost and bagel buttons seemed to work well too. However, after 2.5 years, the push-down lever would no longer engage/stay at the bottom. I think the simple plain white toaster that we owned prior to this one lasted a lot longer and was purchased for a lot less.

    LOOKS PERFECT RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX - A SET OF FELT PADS TOOK CARE OF PRODUCT NOT BEING LEVEL- I LIKE THAT TOAST & OTHER PRODUCTS, POPS UP HIGH WHEN FINISHED TOASTING - SOMETHING MY OLD TOASTER DID NOT DO - (NO MORE BURN FINGERS) DOES A VERY GOOD JOB OF TOASTING - BREADS & OTHER FROZEN PRODUCTS THIS IS A GREAT $25.00 + SHIPPING TOASTER - NOT A $50.00 PRODUCT WHEN PAYING FULL RETAIL - MY TOASTER WAS 15 YEARS OLD - I JUST DID NOT REALIZE HOW OUT OF DATE IT WAS & THE POOR JOB OF TOASTING IT DID - GOOD PRODUCT FOR THE MONEY!

    I had the same brand and model before and replaced it with the same after 10 years. The old one was still working great and would probably have still lasted another 10 years but for the push lever on the side that kept getting dislodged. I would give this toaster a 5 star rating had it not been for the lever. I trust the brand so much that I simply went and bought the same model make and I am hoping it lasts me for another 10 years.

    Excellent Toaster. Classic Design

    I wanted a sleek, metal classic-design appliance. Most important, I wanted a good 2-slice, standard-sized which would fit on a small shelf in a small New York kitchen. The Cuisinart I purchased is stable. The timer is accurate. The 2 slots accommodate bagels. The defrost works perfectly. It makes great toast. The price is decent considering the excellence of the product. I'm very pleased & would not hesitate to recommend it.

    Good toaster in many ways but, like a lot of toasters, you have to toast some of the more moist artisan breads twice to get any browning. For most breads,however, it works fine. I don't know if this is cuz of govt restrictions or not. My wife is from Brazil and down there she has a Black and Decker that will toast anything much better. I'd have to try a US model of that B&D to see if the US model is a weak toaster or not.

    Well built toaster

    Although this is not the prettiest toaster I have seen, it is the most well built one; I looked at many other stores before selecting this toaster. I bought a beautiful toaster at Sears, but the thin pastries Kept falling through the slots and on to the floor of the toaster, where the proceeded to burn. There is no way any thin pastries would fall through these well constructed slots.

    We purchased exactly the same model about 15 years ago (or more as far as I remember). It worked flawlessly all these years. When Control Lever got broken, probably just because of being old and overused, we were happy when we have found the same model in Best Buy. Hopefully it will work another 15 years.

    Ok, the first time the toaster was used (by a person who didn’t read the directions) the toast got burned. If you are using one piece of toast, do NOT dial up to the darkest setting! Now that the directions are read, it works great, looks stylish, and goes with the other appliances.

    I purchased this online for store pickup and I don't know if it was the last one but it clearly had been dropped or stepped on. The box was really damaged. Figured I would try it out anyway. It worked once then wouldn't pop back up. Needlessr to say it has been returned so I can't say if it any good or not. I can say the one piece of toast I got was good, so there's that

    Being a technophile, I don't normally blow gift cards on appliances. However, while browsing at Best Buy, I got to thinking that I really needed to replace my old toaster. I spent a good deal of time looking at the available toasters, and finally decided on this one. I haven't used it a lot, but when I have used it, it has performed very well.

    Had to replace a toaster that almost caught on fire. Did some research and this toaster came up for size (2 slice) and $ value plus I was already familiar with Cuisinart brand and good reputation. A friend also confirmed that she had this toaster and liked it a lot!

    The functions are value added. Already utilizing the frozen and cancel features plus the toast controls are awesome! The design looks great in a small kitchen where countertop space small. Blends well with other Stainless Steel appliances. The only downside to stainless steel is that it requires wiping down with a stainless steel product or All Purpose Pledge
