Including reheat and defrost options, this toaster’s managed to become a conversation piece in my kitchen a couple of times! With wide toasting slots bagels are easily fitted while self centering slots cut any dark spots toward the edges, this works very well keeping bread evenly browned throughout. The reheat function can warm toast while not browning any further.

A blue backlit display on the side displays how well bread is toasted. Once the toast button is pressed the contents of the toaster will drop down automatically ready to be toasted. Once completed the toast or bagel will be slowly lifted out and the CPT-440 will beep once.

The Cuisinart CPT-440 Touch to Toast Leverless 4-Slice Toaster has removable crumb trays, this makes cleaning much easier because you can just detach the trays and shake crumbs into the bin. With a cord that fits underneath the toaster it won’t add clutter to your kitchen, which is a small but appreciated feature. A brushed stainless steel design and the backlit display the Cuisinart touch to toast lever less looks modern yet understated look, the buttons feel well-engineered which is excellent, after reviewing many products you’d be surprised how many ‘higher end’ products cut corners, not the case here. Weighing just under 7 pounds, if space is at a premium that it’s not a problem with the CPT–440, it’s relatively compact and can fit in a cupboard should you want to store it out-of-the-way.

One problem to note about the Cuisinart Touch to Toast Leverless 4-Slice Toaster is that once the darkness level has been selected the process is completely automated, this may not be a problem to some however if for exaple, you find the cycle has finished and the toaster is not browned to your liking there is no timer to set for extra minute. The only solution is to set it to set the brownness setting to a lower level.While mentioning that problem we’d be remiss to not say that the toasting quality is very impressive and there hasn’t been a necessity to try that yet.

With all Cuisinart products the Cuisinart CPT-440 Touch to Toast has a three-year warranty to make even the most cautious of buyers more comfortable with their purchase. Having used Cuisinart customer service before I can personally vouch for the quality of service and comprehensive understanding of their products.

Amazon ratings and reviews

Achieving 4.4 out of 5.0 stars and 85% of users giving at least 4/5 stars the Amazon community seems very pleased with the quality of bread and bagel toasting they get. Users compliment how evenly it toasts, the fact it can heat waffles, reheat and defrost. People don’t seem to mind about the lack of the timer because the toasting is good enough that it becomes irrelevant as a function.

Currently on offer on Amazon the CPT series from Cuisinart is available in two and four slot units.
