Weekly Gift Idea: Cuisinart CPT-440 Countdown 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster


I was looking for a good toaster a while back. I ended up buying this one after reading reviews. I love this toaster. I set the number I want to toast to, put the bread in the slots, push Toast and the toast goes down. When it is done, it pops up. Great for toast and bagels.

I bought the 4 slice model but you can get the 2 slice model too.

Product Description

Color: Polished Chrome | Style Name: 4-Slice

Cuisinart gets extra credit for its innovative Touch to Toast Lever-less Toaster. A motorized control lowers items into 4 extra wide slots with the touch of a button. Dual control panels, with blue backlit LCD displays and countdown timers, control two slots each. Features one-sided enhanced bagel toasting, reheat and defrost controls, audible alert signal and 7 shade settings – everything you’ve come to expect from atop-of-the-line Cuisinart toaster. Streamlined, in elegant brushed stainless steel, it’s the toast of the town.

“I went to the “leverless” Cuisinart. It’s about $20-$30 more expensive than the newer model, which has a lever for lowering the toast, but I decided to go leverless anyway. I’m glad I did. The leverless function is very neat–effortless and functional–and in my experience, the push levers can break or go wonky, so I think this is better. Otherwise, it toasts evenly, dries the bread slightly making it taste better when toasted, and the bagel setting works nicely, toasting only one side. The “countdown” feature is a set of digital bars that disappear one by one as the toast progresses, until there are none left, and the toast rises, sounding a light ping at the same time.”

“It may seem odd but I bought this for my wife on Valentine’s Day and it was one of her favorite Valentine’s Day gifts ever. It happens after 30 years. It might have helped that 1) I saw her looking at toasters in Target, 2) I gave her roses and took her to dinner too. The latter cost as much as the toaster, but it’s the toaster she still raves about.

“Everyone who sees it is interested and impressed. It’s everything the product description says and it makes good toast and frozen waffles too.”

Like I say, I love this toaster as do many others who have purchased it.
Enjoy! John
