Like most four-slice toasters, the CPT-440 is a bit boxy.

You'll be able to toast using different settings on each side of the toaster. In this test, we cooked frozen waffles to a crispy six out of seven on the left, while simultaneously setting Pop-Tarts to toast at a light two of seven.

The waffles came out fully cooked, lightly browned and deliciously crisp.

Meanwhile, those Pop-Tarts came out nice and hot, but only lightly toasted -- exactly the result we wanted.

For toast, you get seven shade settings. Here are the results at a one, a four, and a seven. Looks good to me -- especially that nice, even, golden-brown toast in the middle.

One weak spot: the bagel preset, which didn't toast terribly evenly. Didn't stop us from eating the test results, though.

At $100 (just under £65, converted), this is a relatively pricey toaster. Are the fancy features worth it? Read our full review to find out.
