Comment:
We use this toaster almost daily, for bread and bagels. While the bagel setting is helpful, overall the toaster is uneven in performance...eg a setting of four on one side will under toast while over or properly tossing the other side. It appears that the wires that provide the heat are not all working...but sometimes some and sometimes others. this is the second one we've used, returned the first and this has simply not worked since the 2nd day. Not sure how CR managed to give it such a high rating.

Comment:
In my previous review I was awaiting my third Cuisinart CPT-440 after the first two failed to do more than lightly brown. The third one was no different. In fact, not only did it only lightly brown the toast, it did so unevenly.<br /><br />After speaking with customer service about the problem, they suggested occasionally a few toasters may not work up to par and I had managed to get ahold of some.<br /><br />This experience has given me a renewed appreciation for my old toaster which I have returned to using.

Comment:
This toaster is used every day in our kitchen. While it requires experimentation to find the right setting for each variety, it is consistent when set correctly. The one-slice slot works properly every time.<br />Beware of very sweet berad, like raisin bred. It is very easy to over-toast so start on a low setting first.
