Beautiful design. The slots are great and they close into the bread, whatever size you are toasting. The temperatures are not good. I have to toast at the max number, 7, and it still isnt toasted. I have to re-toast at 5 to get a light brown toast. Although when I toast on the Bagel setting, the bagels normally are a good toast. I am not happy with this toaster and would not recommend.
This toaster is awesome! Very sleek and modern looking in my brand new kitchen. Most important it toasts evenly & so far has been very consistent. My last Cuisinart toaster always toasted one side of the bread darker than the other so I was hesitant to buy the same brand but the style & features intrigued me. Glad I took a chance. The beep to let you know it is done is a very nice feature too, especially when you are preparing a big breakfast.
We bought this toaster for a small but busy shop and very happy with it. It works like a charm, faster than most, and the settings are very reliable. Not just a good-looking toaster, but makes good-looking toasts too. It is very helpful that we can see on the screen when the toasts get ready. We only wish that Cuisinart would make a 6 or 8-slice version.
