Metal Classic 4-Slice Toaster

Cuisinart toasters are terrible! I’ve had this one and now have the two slice. Never browns evenly; one side burns while the other is blond. It has a bagel button but doesn’t indicate which direction the sliced side should face. The slots are too short for the wider bread loaves and you have to squish them in or trim them down. I admit these toasters are pretty too look at; but pretty doesn’t make nice toast. What is the big challenge with toasters? They can send a man to the moon but they can’t perfect a toaster! smh
