Pros:Always toasts perfectly, small footprint, well made

Cons:Not much to look at, but then again, it is a toaster.

The Bottom Line: If you cherish that slice of toast, bagel or muffin, the Cuisinart CPT-20 will get it right every time.


The Cuisinart CPT-20 (in black) came to me free through a mail-in offer on the purchase of one of their famous coffee makers. The coffee maker is better then great, so I had no reason to believe that even though it was free, the toaster would be also.

Now you'd think making toast (or bagels, or English muffins) would be simple stuff, but trust me it's not. I bought a GE toaster for about $20 from Wal Mart when I moved into my house based 100% on looks. Cool stainless retro design matched my design theme, and my Cuisinart coffee maker for that matter. When it came to making toast, however, it was useless. Make that dangerous. The main issue I had was that the toast when done would not come up high enough to "grab" out of the toaster. I don't know who designed the thing, but they must have come from the land of giant bread. Maybe they watched Shrek one too many times.

So I was excited to find that not only is the Cuisinart CPT-20 a super-even toaster, but when it's done you can get the toast with your fingers, rather then some kitchen tool really not meant for use in toasters. The Cuisinart CPT-20 also has the famous "Bagel Function" which simply lowers one side of heating as to not burn the un-cut side of the bagel. In addition to the Bagel button, there's a similar button for "Defrost" and a cancel button. Both are simple, usefull, and work well.

So in a nutshell (or breadbowl...), the Cuisinart CPT-20 is a solid buy, and worth the $10-15 it might cost over another toaster of a lesser brand. It's simple, boring, and plastic...but it works great still seems very well made. Another great product from Cuisinart.
