Summary: I go this item refurbished at a great price. It is an excellent toaster and the metal makes it look very sleek and modern. I have no regrets. Cuisinart is a great band and this a great toaster.
Excerpt: Overall this toaster is great. Appearance and easy to maintain (just wipe and your good). Slots are wide, so that my bagels don't get caught on sides. I love it for both toast and bagels. Everything gets cooked on both sides, instead of just one side how most toasters do. I have had my toaster for about a year and still works the same as day on.
Excerpt: I don't love this cuisinart metal classic 2 slice toaster, but I certainly don't hate it. It does the job - it toasts my toast, bagel, etc. I like that it has a retro look to it, in my kitchen it's a fun thing to have on the counter. But is it worth the price tag it carries? I really don't think so. In my experience toasters either work or they don't. I've bought those $5 toasters that either burn my toast or never toast it at all.
Excerpt: This is a fine toaster that really has nice even toasting, unlike many other toasters I have owned!! Probably the only downside of this toaster is its size. Unlike my old one, this new toaster is a little more chunky and takes up more cabinet space. But overall, if you are looking for a toaster that toasts evenly, this is the toaster for you!!
Excerpt: My husband and I recieved this toaster 5 years ago as a wedding gift. We had registered for it at Bed Bath & Beyond because it looked simple, was mid-priced, and looked pretty nice. We wanted something that looked stainless steel. It cleans pretty nicely, has a crumb tray that comes out for easy cleaning, and still works like a charm, 5 years later.
Excerpt: As far as toasters go, this toaster is pretty good. I wanted one that was wide enough to cook bagels and this one does a decent job without the bagel getting stuck (unless it's just a huge bagel). I like the timer on the side to control how dark the bread gets, it goes up to 5 minutes I think for those of you who like your bread really dark. Its fairly easy to clean, it has a crumb catcher on the bottom that you just slide out to dumb the crumbs.
