Where to Buy
 

This four-slice toaster is the larger sibling of the Cuisinart Compact 2-Slice Toaster CPT-120 (*Est. $30) , and it gets similar reviews. Fifty bucks is actually a good price for a four-slice toaster (some, like the more highly rated Breville Die-Cast 4-Slice Smart Toaster BTA840XL, cost almost triple the price). On the downside, owner-written reviews are mixed for the Cuisinart four-slice toaster; although many are happy with it, others complain of uneven browning, over-browning or having to run toast through two cycles. On the plus side, a bagel setting is included, and there are two sets of controls. On the whole, this toaster gets stronger overall reviews than other four-slice toasters in its price class.

The Cuisinart CPT-140 isn't included in any professional reviews but receives plenty of owner feedback at Amazon.com. Like almost all toasters, the overall story is mixed. Although many users seem perfectly happy with it, others aren't as pleased. We found additional owner-written reviews at Cooking.com and Viewpoints.com.
