"The CPT-435 is a versatile toaster and comes with Cuisinart’s top-quality features."
If you’re looking for a toaster that is ideal for helping in the busy morning rush so you can serve up to 4 slices of toast at a time quickly and easily, the Cuisinart CPT-435 is the toaster for you. Not only is the CPT-435 excellent at toasting bread to the exact shade you prefer, but it also comes with an array of features to give you full customization over how you toast, reheat or defrost your bread, bagels and sweet treats. Costing between $70 and $90, this high-quality toaster is advanced in its technology and functions to make your toasting routine so much easier. Encased in a stylish design, the CPT-435 is affordable, sophisticated and manufactured by one of the leading brands in small kitchen appliances. As far as toasters go, the Cuisinart CPT-435 is up there as one to consider.
The high-quality design of the Cuisinart CPT-435 is reflected in its stainless-steel casing, showing off its sophistication and durability as a toaster that is built to last. Although the external housing can get hot when the toaster is in use, this means that you will have to place this toaster with enough space around it that it takes pride of place on your countertop! Its backlit LCD screen is one of the most noticeable features, as it comes in a cool blue color that is not only clear to see but also shows off its trendy style. Also, this top-quality toaster comes in a silver stainless casing, which means it can easily blend into any kitchen style, complementing the theme nicely.
Although it’s a shame this toaster doesn’t come in other finish options, it does finish this toaster off nicely in a modern way. The buttons located on the front of the toaster are easy to read and comfortable to use, and the overall design is simply elegant. The measurements of the CPT-435 are 12.6 x 12.3 x 9 inches, and it weighs 7.1 pounds, making it portable and compact enough to fit onto your countertop with ease, without taking up too much space.
As with all Cuisinart toasters, you will not be left disappointed with the number of fantastic features the CPT-435 has to offer. You are getting much more than a toaster with this model; it can quickly become a staple appliance in your kitchen for defrosting and reheating bread and other sweet treats, such as frozen pancakes and pastries made to be toasted. This makes the Cusinart CPT-435 an extremely versatile toaster, especially as you can also use it to toast bagels on a specific bagel function as well. The bagel function doesn’t have to be used to toast bagels, but it is there if you require it, resulting in a perfectly toasted bagel that’s crispy on top and soft and chewy on the bottom, exactly how bagels should be! Also, the Cuisinart CPT-435 comes with a digital shade control so you can adjust the type of shading you want to achieve on your toast by selecting the relevant setting. What’s more, the CPT-435 model also comes with the option to set the countdown timer, so you can see when your toast will be ready. This is where the backlit LCD screen comes in extremely handy, as not all toaster brands come with this handy function.
As already established, the Cuisinart CPT-435 allows you to customize the toasting experience to suit you, and this is shown further by the extra wide slots on this toaster. This is a common feature with Cuisinart toasters, with the slots measuring 1.5 inches to allow for more substantial cuts of bread such as bakery bread that is thicker than the regular packaged bread. Not all toasters come with extra wide slots, so it’s certainly worth bearing this in mind if you know you like a thicker cut of toast and want to make sure it gets evenly toasted throughout.
The CPT-435 also comes with a high-lift lever so you can boost the lever higher, should the bread become difficult to remove. This limits any burnt fingers by trying to get shallow pieces of toast out and makes it easier overall to remove your toasted items. Finally, one of the great features on this high-quality toaster is the dual independent toasting controls, meaning you and a friend or family member can toast your bread at the same time but to different shades and with different types of bread. This is a great function and saves you both time as you don’t have to wait for the other one to finish with the toaster before using it for your different style bread, pop tart, pancake or whatever item you wish to toast.
Ease of Use
As far as ease of use goes, the Cuisinart CPT-435 toaster has been made with the consumer in mind and therefore has made it as easy as possible to use without confusion. The buttons on the exterior are large and clearly labeled and require minimal effort to push down. The LCD screen is easy to read as it comes with a backlight, so you don’t need to rely on the angling the toaster toward the light to see the display (like you have to with other brands of toasters) which adds to its usability and makes the overall toasting experience much more comfortable. It can toast up to four slices of bread at a time which is great for families or if you need a lot of bread toasted quickly. Although there have been reports of uneven toasting, it does just take a bit of time when you first use this toaster to customize the settings to how you prefer your toast to be.
Overall, the Cuisinart CPT-435 is an excellent toaster to suit your everyday toasting needs and is undoubtedly a toaster you can rely on. The stainless-steel casing and LCD screen highlight this model’s quality, and it does a brilliant job of allowing you to play around with the settings and customize it to suit you. The CPT-435 is a versatile toaster and comes with Cuisinart’s top-quality features, as well as their generous 3-year warranty, showing that they are a company that cares about their customers. With an affordable price tag too, the Cuisinart CPT-435 is certainly a toaster that’s worth the money.
