Bagel function with wider slots

If you are a bagel lover which is browned in that dual way i.e. crisp upper half and soft bottom, then this bagel function is just for you. It can brown the bagel on the top side and make it crispy as desired, while the lower part remains soft and chewy. However, if the user desires to crisp the bagel all the way through, there is no need to use bagel function.

Simply interest the bagel and press the toast button, and enjoy it as you desire. The Cuisinart Countdown 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster has wider slots, with a width of 1.5”. these can have incorporated thicker breads other than regular ones such as thick French toasts, pancakes, pastries and others.


Dual toasting controls

There are two separate control panels in this toaster, which allows the user to toast 2 slices with one setting and the other two slices with some other settings. This allows u to prepare the breakfast of different choices in one go, hence saves time and energy. When the bread is toasted enough, the toaster stops and pops the bread out.

Sometimes it is not easy for user to grab the hot toast and take it out easily. Hence, the Cuisinart CPT-435 has a high lift up lever. It lifts the bread high enough so that one can easily grab it with a pair of plastic tongs, or even with bare fingers.
