Whether you’re in a rush or craving a meal that’s light and nutritious, nothing works better than a fresh warm toast. These crispy delicacies can be paired with just about everything and are a great choice for dinner, lunch, and breakfast.
That said, a great toast can only be made using one of the best high-end toasters, and that’s where I come in place. After spending more than a week scouring products on the internet and taking them through test sessions, I’ve finally stumbled upon a masterpiece I think will perfectly accommodate anyone’s needs and personal preferences.
I’d not like to take up too much of your time, so let’s dive right in and review what the Cuisinart CPT-435 Countdown 4- Slice Brushed Toaster can deliver.
Cuisinart CPT-435 Countdown 4- Slice Brushed Toaster Review
Ask any cooking appliances enthusiasts, and they’ll tell you that Cuisinart is one of the few brands that has consistently produced high quality appliances that are perfect for both industrial and domestic use. This Cuisinart CPT-435 Countdown 4-Slice Brushed Toaster is one of such appliances.
This little toaster doesn’t even have the typical toaster look you’re used to. Cuisinart went above and beyond in that department as well.
As you can see from the product’s image above, it boasts two different sets of controls, which implies that you can use the first two slots on the right to toast slices using your favorite settings while at the same time using the other two slots on the left to toast two more slices using entirely different settings. This will save everyone’s time in your household, especially on those mornings that some of you have to leave in a hurry.
Both sets of controls also boast a blue backlit LCD display that will allow you to know which settings the toaster is on so you can adjust accordingly. The display will also show the countdown timer during the toasting process to help you ensure your toasts are never burnt.
Below the LCD display, you’ll also find two dials with the + and – signs. These allow you to pick from the seven shade settings that the unit retails with (ranging from lightly warmed to darkly toasted and crispy.) All the 4 slots are self-adjusting. This implies that after placing your bread slices in the slots, they will position them such that they’re perfectly adjacent to the heating elements, so all slices come out perfectly and evenly cooked.
The four buttons you can see on both sides of the toaster are the defrost, reheat, bagel, and cancel functions. During my test sessions, the bagel setting cooked my bagels in such a manner that the outside came out crispy, but the insides remained soft and warm. When you have leftovers at the end of the day, use the reheat setting to warm them up in less than 30 seconds. The cancel option will allow you to instantly turn off the toaster if anything goes wrong, e.g., when your bread slices get stuck in the appliance.
