The Cuisinart CPT-420 is part of the Toaster test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Toaster models like the CPT-420 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Color range: How well the toasters or toaster ovens produced both very light toast and very dark toast.
Full batch: Reflects color evenness among all slices in a batch.
One slice: We toasted just one slice of large white bread in each model, aiming for medium brown toast.
Unbiased: Retailers cannot influence placement.
Ad-free: As an integrated part of Consumer Reports, you shop in a completely ad-free environment.
New products only: You will never find used or refurbished products for sale.
