The BTA820XL is integrated with a microchip that will auto lower your bread into its extra wide toasting slots with a single button press & will regulate an appropriate toasting period.
You will also find it comes with a range of practical settings such as the ‘a bit more’ feature which will lower the bread for more toasting as well as my favorite aspect the auto-lift and look feature, which basically allows you to check on the progress of the toasting without actually cancelling or re-setting the toasting cycle.

It is designed as you can tell somewhat from the design to be ultra compact as well as being sleek & modern, making it ideal for those who have a small work surface and apartment living.

Instead of the traditional lever system that you get with traditional toasters, the CPT-2000 works on a motorized lift and low feature so you can program it with just the touch of a button. It also works on the same LED system with shade indicators that let you know the progress of what stage the toast is currently at. The main positive though, is its actual toasting performance, everything is always top notch with it being evenly toasted throughout bread slices (and is also capable of dealing with waffles and bagels too).
