Cuisinart Cool Touch Toaster The CPT-120 comes with an astonishing nine browning levels in addition to the touchpad controls for reheat, defrost, bagel, and cancel settings. It works with both fresh and frozen toastable items. Inch and a half wide slots are roomy enough for larger items such as bagels and muffins.

LED indicator lights denote settings in use and backlight the browning dial. This two slice toaster offers a lever for raising items for easy retrieval, a sliding crumb tray, a three year warranty, and handy cord wrap. The toaster is designed to sit facing forward or sideways on the counter with a streamlined profile.

This is the best received of all of the Cuisinart toasters. Users liked the color selections for the housing. It was the first time I've ever heard a toaster referred to as cute or fun. They found this one to be a good little appliance and easy to clean for the most part, even while issues still arise with uneven toasting and burning.

Customers do wish for an appliance which helps with taller breads (in addition to the concessions made for longer slices in other models), but were able to add and remove even homemade breads with ease. The lever lift for easy access is always a winner, saving countless people from burned nail beds and fingertips. The cool touch sides are also more user-friendly. The CPT-120 is a less expensive model with the features of a fancier appliance.

Compare this with KitchenAid's basic toaster in a streamlined metal design.
