What reviewers didn't like

This model had no discernible flaws in its performance.
Although our previous two-slot pick, the Oster Jelly Bean, still browned bread better than most other budget toasters, it paled in comparison with the Cuisinart. Despite having slots deeper than those of the Black + Decker and Hamilton Beach toasters we tested, the Jelly Bean still left pure white crowns on otherwise nicely toasted bread. These white tops get even bigger if you forget to push the bread down as far as it will go in the slot, which we found irritating and hard to remember.
Average user interface.
Some types of bread are too tall for this machine. Occasional reports of machinery defects.
Uneven browning at sometimes. Some bread cuts do not fit into the slots.
