The soft sound of bread toasting is a welcome addition to any morning.

The crackles and pings of metal heating up and stretching to greet the day are a comforting way to shake off the cold sleep of night. The sounds mean that the smell of slathered butter and cinnamon will soon greet the air, offering a perfect complement to the slowly brewing coffee. And then the toaster pops up the finished toast with a pang loud enough to raise, if not the dead, at least the rest of the household.

Consider a re-imagining of the morning scene, complete with warm, perfectly browned toast and eye-opening coffee, except this time, the conclusion of the reverie is completed by toast slowly rising from the appliance with barely a whisper. How nice this morning with the Cuisinart CPT-2000 2-Slice Long Slot Motorized Toaster must be.

Featuring a sleek aluminum housing and a streamlined design, the toaster gives forth the basic sustenance of toasted bread in a pleasing matter that is not confined to just the senses of smell and sound. Including popular features such as one-sided bagel toasting, seven shade settings, and a countdown LED timer, the toaster brings familiar control to the morning table. And with a motorized lift-and-lower feature, mornings can continue to be the quiet greeting of the new day that they were meant to be.
