Who doesn’t love the smell of warm, buttery toast first thing in the morning? A toaster is something no kitchen can do without, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or a quick dinner. The convenience of having a toaster in your kitchen has no limits. A good toaster should be affordable, reliable and—most importantly—toast bread to perfection. Find your ideal toaster with our tips below.
The Best Toaster Buying Guide Since Sliced Bread
- How many slices of toast do you make in the morning? A 2-slot toaster is ideal for those who don’t want to take up too much bench space, while a 4-slot toaster is more suitable for larger families or for those who prefer a muffin, a bagel or a nice, crunchy piece of focaccia bread in the morning.
- No one likes a burnt slice of toast. With some 4-slot toasters, you get more even toasting and wider slots, so you can pop in larger pieces of bread or experiment with artisanal breads.
- Everyone likes their toast a certain way: Whetherlightly browned, or a little darker, find a toaster with a wide range of cooking controls, so bread is toasted to your liking every time.
- Want to avoid spreading crumbs all over the kitchen bench? Make sure your toaster comes with a handy crumb tray, so you can pour crumbs straight into the bin.
- Certain toaster models even allow you the luxury of taking bagels and muffins straight from the freezer to the toaster to defrost, all at the touch of a button!
- Look for models with an easy-to-clean surface and with less awkward corners where those pesky crumbs can easily get stuck, making it much easier to care for your toaster.
- Turn your toaster into an elegant statement piece! A toaster in classic stainless steel looks good with vibrant colour combinations like red, orange and yellow or an industrial aesthetic. Rose gold accents can give kitchen décor a chic upmarket feel, while bold patterns and bursts of colour can also add depth to neutral tones.
- You can even make life easier by buying a toaster/kettle combo. This is especially handy if you need both, and want them to match!
