Well, I ended up buying the cuisinart. Not the super delux model but the regular model ($65 on sale thru cuisinart web site) Looks nice, nice sounding ready alarm but the toast takes too damn long to cook. Oh well.
Have you hopped on the toaster oven dessert train yet? If not, now is the time and crostatas are the reason. Tapping into the power of your toaster oven (for more than just reheating pizza) is a real pro move when you're oven is fully occupied.
