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.
Summary: I had an old toaster that never did the job on the first pass. I had to push the lever down over and over again to get bread to toast. It was very frustrating. This works first time, every time. This may seem like a small thing, but it gets my day off right.
Summary: Toaster came quickly and is everything that it was described to be. toasts evenly and quickly. It is very attractive and matches well the other stainless appliances in the kitchen. It is all metal and has a convenient clean-out drawer in the bottom.
