Pros: Earlier version (4 years ago) made very nice toast. Very consistent
Cons: Doesn't fit 4 slices of bread.
Sometimes when manufacturers are pushed hard enough for competitive prices they tend to play with the specifications they advertise. Though this toaster says it can do 4 slices of bread it isn't bread of any size that we can find a the retail grocery stores. So we have returned the toaster to the store that we bought it from.
Now a word about our experience with other Cuisanart Electronic Controlled Toasters. While vacationing 4 years ago we had the pleasure of one these kind of toasters at the condo where we stayed.
I can't remember the model but it was truly an incredibly fine instrument of toast making. Every piece of toast or bagel came out perfectly from the first set of breads to the last. We were very impressed and finely after buying a series of non-electronic Cuisenarts we decided to buy the electronic one.
Unfortunately it is not large enough to do 4 slices of bread as advertised so we can't really use it.
