Cuisinart 2 Slice Toaster
The Best Toaster I've Ever Owned ~ Cuisinart
Somewhere along the way I must have mentioned to my oldest sister that our toaster was on its last days. Being the good soul that she is, she stored the information in her memory bank and surprised us with this brand new Cuisinart 2 slice toaster for Christmas.
Since breakfast is my favorite meal, having a good toaster is a mainstay around our home. Not only do I use a toaster for ordinary toast needs, but I like to use it for a variety of sandwiches that I like. When my husband opened the package we noticed all the wonderful things that this small kitchen appliance could do.
Why I like this product.
If you'll notice, this particular Cuisinart toaster has 2 slots, but it also comes in a 4 slot as well. I love the classic design of stainless steel, because to me it looks so clean and bright. Take note that the exterior has no sharp edges either, but a sleek, smooth appearance.
Bagels are another bread item that we eat a lot of in my home, and I never had a toaster that could handle one. If I used a toaster for it, the thing would always get stuck because it wasn't made to do bagels. Well, besides regular bread this toaster is set up to take bagels, French bread, Texas toast or waffles because it has slots 1 and a 1/2 inches wide.
There are four settings: bagel like I mentioned, defrost (love that), reheat (warm your toast without toasting it again) and cancel. The control lifter is larger and heavy duty making it easy to manipulate. You'll like this also, there is a dial number setting that lets you select the shade control of your toast. One of my sisters likes her toast almost burnt, I like a darker toast, but my husband prefers a rather light toast. Perfect!
Clean-up is another thing that makes this a better toaster ... there's hardly any! It comes with a slide out crumb tray that can easily be whipped out keeping it looking classy on any counter-top. It comes with a 3 year warranty.
I don't know what you look for in a toaster, but this one has it over some of the other name brands. Right now this item is on sale at a great price. If you purchase it here, shipping and handling are free and that's something to be considered these days.
It's been about six years since I received this toaster as a gift, and it still looks like new! Just love the product!

peachpurple I can't image having that type of problem with an appliance. I'm sorry, but I haven't seen one with a cover. It would be nice, especially in your situation.

i have seen 2 slots but there isn't any lid to cover the slots, my house is full of geckos. They love to jump in toaster for meals and get toasted

I definitely would consider giving a toaster as a gift item, if I knew someone needed one.

@PAINTDRIPS: So do I, and I still love it :) Nice seeing you Denise.

It's funny that although most people think it is sleek and "modern" it is really a style from the 50's. I remember my parents had like this. It lasts and lasts. Nice design.

I like how sleek and modern this one looks. Will go with the interior of my apartment.
