  • Cuisinart Electronic Toaster- Where is the Art?

    Mar 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: features such as defrost button and reheat button
    Cons: there is a number system instead of light, medium or dark

    Summary: After many toasting moments with my toaster, the paint begin to chip off the toaster. I thought it was time for a new appliance. I ask my mom for a toaster for Christmas. I did not care what kind. I just would like to be able to toast bagels in it. My ... read more

  • good and dependable

    May 2, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: does what it is supposed to do
    Cons: hard to keep shell clean

    Summary: We have owned this toaster for five years and I find it very difficult to say very much bad about it.  The one negative thing I can say is that the chrome shell is very difficult to keep clean.  Fingerprints and smudges seem to always be ... read more

  • I now crave toast

    Mar 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, toasts evenly. No cold spots. Wide slots. Crumb tray.
    Cons: Expensive for a toaster. Perhaps too powerful.

    Summary: Have you ever read a novel where the author waxes poetically about a delicious, perfectly grilled slice of toast, and wondered what the fuss was about? I used to, until the Cuisinart CPT-70 Classic Style 2-Slice Toaster. I’m actually a toast-fan, now. ... read more

  • Seven Years and Still Going Strong

    Jan 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: wide slots; easy crumb removal; defrost, reheat and cancel buttons; browning control
    Cons: none

    Summary: We got this as a wedding present in 1998, and it is still going strong. It has two WIDE slots for bread (even bagels!). They are 1.5" wide and a little over 5" long. You can do Texas toast in this toaster! The toast also pops out pretty far, so you ... read more

  • A Good, Classy Choice but Hard to Keep Clean!

    Dec 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great style, wide slots.
    Cons: Hard to keep the mirrored area clean.

    Summary: My husband purchased this toaster for me when we were engaged in late 1999. We didn't have our own home until September of 2000 which is when I started using it. I saw this at a local department store and fell in love with the styling - it seemed to be ... read more

  • Cuisinart was SOOO close to a real winner here...

    Sep 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great look, nice warranty, reasonable price
    Cons: Unevenly toasts

    Summary: Cuisinart got it SOOO close. They made a toaster which looks quite attractive (in a retro way), is not too expensive (I paid $30), and is easy to keep clean (I got the brushed stainless finish version -- not the shiny chrome finish others have ... read more

  • This toaster has some unpleasant quirks

    Jun 28, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable, nice styling. Reasonable price (not cheap, but not high-end)
    Cons: Uneven toasting, tends to burn toast on occasion no matter what the setting.

    Summary: Nice looking toaster, this. Rounded, chrome, classic without being retro. I chose it after despairing in a search for "the" toaster. Reading reviews, I see that toaster-buying is difficult. It's not the feature set so much as style, reliability and ... read more

  • PRETTY MEANS POTTY

    Nov 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: PRETTY, CRUMB TRAY, PUSH-UP LEVER
    Cons: DOES NOT TOAST EVENLY or "MANAGE" BURNING

    Summary: I had an old, ugly toaster that I was perfectly happy with and that always toasted evenly. But it died :( and sent me headlong into my search for a new toaster, which was not an easy task. First, I purchased a toaster oven and found that it ... read more

  • Cover better than the book

    Jul 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice appearance.
    Cons: Not as durable as one might expect.

    Summary: The Classic made toast well for about two years. Has lots of settings I never used such as defrost. Now toasts just one side. The plastic lever broke off almost immediately after purchase leaving a metal stump. Beautiful retro-look, but the industrial ... read more

  • Disappointed

    Nov 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice
    Cons: Uneven toasting

    Summary: After years of half-baked toast (extra-brown on one side, barely done on the other), we had the opportunity to get a new toaster after temporarily moving into a furnished place without a toaster. As our (crummy) toaster was packed in storage, we eagerly ... read more

  • Cuisinart Classic Style Toaster: Not So Toasty

    Jun 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice Features, Nice Design, Takes Up Little Counter Space
    Cons: You Say You Like EVENLY Toasted Bread??

    Summary: If you are seeking perfectly, evenly browned bread products, this is not the toaster to buy. It's not a BAD toaster, it's just not the best. Nice Design There is no doubt, aesthetically speaking, this is a ... read more

  • A Year And It's.. Toast?

    Feb 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: only a few buttons
    Cons: annoying 'toast holding down' lever thingy

    Summary: Maybe we eat more toast than normal, maybe our former Cuisinart Toaster (model CPT-70) was a piece of.. well ya know. My mom and I got this lovely silver appliance a little over a year ago, and it's already dead. It seems the catch that holds the ... read more

  • Toast!

    Jan 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: wide slots, attractive design, reliable
    Cons: every fingerprint shows up on the chrome

    Summary: My wife and I received this toaster as a wedding present and couldn't be happier. We're just a family of two, so having a two-slice toaster is just fine. I'm sure families with more members will want to buy the 4-slice model, but, rest assured, the ... read more

  • Third time around?

    Pros: Nice looking, easy to clean, pretty even browning. 
    Cons: I've gone through 2 of these in 8 years.  Is that a normal toaster lifespan?

    Summary: I think not.  I got my first toaster at Crate & Barrell many years ago and after a few years, the browning unit in one slot completely died.  A phone call to the good people at Cuisinart resulted in a replacement--I didn't even need to send ... read more

  • Lasted 6 months, flimsy construction

    Jul 28, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Defrost and Reheat work, settings produce consistent results, looks nice, exterior easy to clean.
    Cons: Flimsy handle, 6-month life, settings > 3 useless, large crumbs in bottom difficult to clean.

    Summary: I wouldn't buy this one again. After 6 months of normal, daily use, half the elements stopped heating, toasting only one side of each slice of bread. Took it apart - no loose wires, must have been in circuitry. Chucked it. Before it died, had ... read more

  • Just can't toast evenly

    Jan 2, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Style, controls
    Cons: can't toast evenly to save its life.

    Summary: We purchased this toaster because we love our Cuisinart food processor... wouldn't quality in one product mean something for another? Evidently not. :( The design LOOKS good and fits all sorts of sizes of bread, bagels, etc. I love how it looks. ... read more

  • Good but not perfect

    Rated Show
    Pros: Attractive, compact
    Cons: fingerprints show up on the chrome, a pain to clean that all the time

    Summary: We received this toaster for our wedding, and use it all the time. The crumb tray is helpful in keeping the area clean, and the toast is toasted evenly once you find exactly where to out the dial. ... read more
