Rated 4 out of 5Â by Camarosa Good Basic Toaster
This toaster offers good features for the price. The cancel and reheat buttons are very useful as well as the toast lift feature. The brochure explains the factors that affect the light/dark setting you should choose. For example, toasting only one slice of bread requires a lower setting than when toasting two. So far I haven't used settings higher than 4. One slice doesn't toast as evenly as two. Dry breads toast darker than dense, moist ones. So far the toaster has performed well but I haven't had it that long although I use it several times every day. The real test is over the long haul.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Camarosa Very Disappointing Toaster
I originally gave this toaster (which I ordered in late January 2014) a good review. However, I started having problems a few weeks after buying it. It began toasting bread on one side only and the toast lift lever wouldn't stay down if there were any crumbs in the lift lever carriage slot. On May 31, the toast lift lever would not stay in the down position at all and blue sparks could be seen in the carriage slot closest to the darkness setting dial. I called Cuisinart customer care. The representative and her supervisor both stated that I would need to pay a $10 handling charge and postage to return the unit. I explained that the toaster was faulty and that I felt Cuisinart should waive all charges. They agreed to drop the handling charge but not the return shipping even though they certainly could email a prepaid label as many manufacturers do. I declined on principle: Cuisinart wanted me to pay for its error in putting a defective unit on the store shelf. Do not buy this toaster, not only because it failed after 4 months but because of Cuisinart's return/repair policy.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by gmis Great features in a compact size!
The product is as described. I read other customer reviews which were very helpful in making my decision. It's a great toaster for the money! Best of all- I was able to get it in white!

After looking at a lot of different brands and even purchasing & returning one, I found this model on line. Cuisinart is a brand name I trust and the price was right. It has performed beyond my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by pea5nuts A terrible product. We returned one, got another one - both burnt the toast on one side - very disappointing
doesn't matter the features if the toaster doesn't toast right. Customer service on the returns were fine
