Summary: I have purchased several toasters costing much more than this one and this toaster is by far the best. Unfortunately, I do not believe it is being made anymore. They have replaced it with a cheaper model. What a a shame!
Summary: Don't buy unless a defective unit can be replaced by the dealer. My first toaster inboard elements burnt toast real bad. To send back to Cuisinart you pay a $10.00 dollar handling fee, they send you a replacement, you send them the defective toaster and you pay return shipping cost. They sent me a different color, it stills burns toast and I am out $23.00.
