Best Toasters

Best Toasters

It’s hard to think of a breakfast (or lunch or dinner) less fussy than toast, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be fussy about your toaster. Everyone has a preference (do you like it barely golden or nearly charred?) and a favorite type of bread or two (English muffins or bagels?). Finding the right toaster will make the whole process a lot easier.

The best toasters can deliver anything from barely warmed to nearly burnt bread. This means they shouldn’t heat up and start burning your breakfast after the fifth batch when you have company. You shouldn’t have to avoid that back slot on the left, either—every spot should produce the same results. Even if you don’t care much about extra features, it’s nice to tell when a toasting cycle will be finished or use the bagel setting to avoid accidental fire alarm activation.
