The truth is, you can never go wrong with any product from Kenmore. The brand does, after all, show up in some of the most top-rated TV programs in the world including shows such as MasterChef, The Great British Bake Off, and so much more. And trust me, if it is sufficiently good for the pros, it will be more than enough for us.
In fact, if I were to rate, I would choose it as the mostly unchanged brand since its introduction 107 years ago (in 1913.) But then again, why would you change a brand that is already delivering some of the best products?
The best Kenmore toasters, particularly their iconic models, will appeal to you on multiple fronts: they are expertly efficient, made consistently, designed robustly, and most importantly, a doddle to use. In addition to that, their timeless, appealing designs and wide array of hard to beat colors ensures that the products blend in with most, if not all kitchen interior decors.
What’s more? As even a quick visit to the brand’s website will show, Kenmore delivers a bewildering choice of toasters. If you want the fastest toasters, they have them. If you want the best retro toasters, they have them. If you are scouring the market for the best 4-slice toasters, Kenmore will have them as well. Whatever variation of toaster you require, this brand has got you covered.
Without taking any more of your time, let us skip to the main section of the post and look at the five best Kenmore toasters you can get today.

- The first product from Kenmore in our review is one of their best retro style toasters to grace the industry. Kenmore 40606 2-Slice Toaster is a stainless-steel toaster designed with rubberized knobs for easy operation while at the same time making your kitchen area look like a ’50s household.
- This masterpiece’s stainless steel also boosts the toaster’s durability and sturdiness, ensuring that it will keep serving your family for years to come without breaking down or running into issues. The appliance slots are also extra-wide and extra-long. I confirmed this using the thickest and longest bread slices (including bagels, English muffins, and even croissants) I could find and all of them fit in perfectly as expected.
- Better yet, it boasts nine different toasting levels you can avail to accommodate everyone’s taste in your family. If I am being honest, this has to be one of the first toasters I have come across with so many browning levels. Usually, toasters deliver five to seven different toasting levels at most.
- What’s more? You can clearly tell the difference between all the levels: unlike other toasters where you will find that the third and fourth toasting level basically delivers the same result.
- In addition to that, Kenmore 40606 2-Slice Toaster also retails with the cancel, defrost, and bagel functions. For those who do not know what these functions do, allow me to explain them in a few words. The defrost function will allow you to toast your frozen slices in a timely manner just like simple bread slices whereas the bagel function allows you to toast only the cut side of your bagel slices. If you fail to activate the bagel setting while toasting your bagels, then they will be toasted on both sides (which is totally okay if that is what you were going for.)
- And in case something gets stuck inside your toaster during operations, simply press the cancel button to halt the entire process and switch off the toaster.
- To conclude the list of hard to beat features, the toaster retails with a removable crumb tray that makes it easy to clean. It will collect all the dirt and debris that fall off your toasted slices. To clean the crumb tray, all you need to do is take it out, wipe it clean using a damp cloth, put it back in the toaster, and go on making your breakfast.
- Delivers 9 different toasting levels
- Strong build to boost sturdiness and durability
- Easy to clean and use
- Slots are extra wide and extra-long
- Has a 4-slot model
- Retails with rubberized knobs to ensure easy operation
- If you are looking for a toaster that can qualify as one of the best space-saving toasters while at the same time qualifying as one of the best four-slice toaster, then this Kenmore Elite 76774 4-Slice Auto-Lift Long Slot Toaster has got you covered.
- It looks like an average 2-slot toaster from the image, but in reality, the two slots can accommodate four slices at the same time, saving space on your kitchen counter. Its design is really modern, the toaster does not have any knobs at all, instead it comes with a one-touch display with LED countdown timer.
- The toaster also delivers a self-lowering and a raise check functionality (as well as self-adjusting bread guides), which together ensure that your slices are always placed in a strategic position so they can come out evenly toasted at all times.
- Compact to save on space
- Easy to use and clean
- LED countdown timer included
- Nine different browning levels
- As a general rule of thumb, I always try my best to include at least one four-slot toaster in my enumeration to cover those who live with a lot of people. This Kenmore 40605 4-Slice Toaster is my pick in this review.
- The best thing about this four-slice toaster is its dual controls (which are visible just from the image above.) For those not accustomed to this feature, it means that you can use the two slots on the right side to prepare a certain meal while at the same time using the other two slots on the left to prepare a different meal. With this feature, you can surely satisfy everyone’s needs in your household. Sounds futuristic, right?
- Boasts a durable, stainless-steel build
- Delivers nine different browning levels
- Slots are extra wide and extra-long
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean
- Rather than just including a four-slice toaster model in this enumeration, I took it a step further and decided to include one of the best convection toaster ovens from Kenmore manufacturers: the Kenmore 4206 6 Slice Convection Toaster Oven.
- Just as its name implies, you can put up to six bread slices in at the same time, or a whole smaller-sized pizza. You can use it to bake, broil or cook different meals in the toaster oven, you won’t be limited to toasting bread.
- To clean it conveniently, it not only comes with a removable crumb tray, but also with a baking-pan and a broil rack. You can easily wash them by using a damp cloth.
- This toaster oven retails with convection technology. This implies that it will circulate warm air inside the toaster oven in order to ensure thorough, even browning and cooking. This mode of cooking will also save you lots of cash in electricity bills in the long run.
- Has an automatic shut off feature
- Easy to clean
- Can easily adjust the digital controls
- Very versatile
- Delivers evenly toasted meals
- If you are a cooking aficionado and scouring the internet trying to find the best Kenmore Toaster that can prepare a whole lot of meals, then I think that this Kenmore 4 slice Digital Toaster Oven could be what you are looking for.
- The fact it is a toaster oven implies that the appliance can prepare basically everything from pizza slices and bacon to fruit crumbles, sausages, and regular toasties. The only downside to this appliance is that you may not be able to operate it efficiently if you are not well accustomed to its settings (the bake, broil, warm, and toast settings.)
- Let us touch on the settings briefly to show you what the appliance is capable of, starting with the bake setting.
- When you set the appliance to its bake setting, then it functions in the exact same way as an ordinary kitchen oven would. That further implies that you can use this setting to prepare anything from cakes to homemade bread slices.
- The second setting we will look at is the broil setting. This will come in handy when you are dealing with mainly meat. Think pork, chicken, fish, beef, and all other meat-related meals. Feel free to throw in casseroles into that group of meals you can prepare using this setting as well.
- Be aware the fact, when your toaster oven is on the broil setting, the usage of aluminum foil to cover the rack is not recommended.
- The toast setting will work the same way as your best regular toaster whereas the warm setting will allow you to heat up your leftover slices without browning them any further.
- Very versatile
- Multiple browning levels to pick from
- Very durable and sturdy
- Easy to use and clean
- Retails with a digital display
If I had to pick from the five best Kenmore toasters above, I would choose the Kenmore 4 slice Digital Toaster Oven. I am a cooking fan and I know it would give me freedom in regard to the meals I can prepare for my family each breakfast. But if you like a different Kenmore toaster, don’t let me change your mind. Go ahead and place an order right away while stock lasts.
