Untoasted, fresh bread slices are amazing as well. But crispy, warm, and perfectly toasted bread slices are even sweeter. This is why if you love bread, then having the best toaster in your kitchen corner is a must. After all, why would you want to deprive yourself of the luxury of toasted bread slices when the marketplace is currently filled with these versatile kitchen appliances?
With that in mind, the fact that the market is filled with the best toasters has its downsides as well: the main fact is the number of best toasters is equal (or less) to the number of mediocre appliances that have been labeled as “ One of the Best.”
And since I presume you are seasoned when it comes to separating wheat from chaff when it comes to toasters, I decided to take it upon myself and exempt you from this task. All you need to do now is go through my enumeration and pick the product that best meets your needs and personal preference.
And to show you that whichever product you pick from this enumeration will meet your needs and desires, below is a list of features and factors that I ensured each product in the review met.
- The ability to deliver evenly toasted bread slices
- The ability to maintain its consistency even after continuously using it for hours
- A design that complements any kitchen interior décor
- Be able to fit in bread slices of all sizes and shapes
- Ease of use
- Ease of cleaning
- Durability and sturdiness
Without wasting any more of your time let us skip to the main section of the post and look at the best toasters out there today.

- Straight out of the box, you can tell that iFedio 2 Slice Toaster is one of the best modern toasters out there today. In fact, its design looks like something from the future. And when coupled with the hard to beat features we will look at in a moment, then you have an appliance that can keep serving your family for years.
- The second thing I loved about this toaster is its LCD Timer Display. The LCD is there to keep you posted throughout the process. The timer, on the other hand, will come in handy if, like me, you tend to get carried when you’re toasting slices in the morning. It makes sure that your toasties will not come out toasted further than you would prefer. So, feel free to make something else such as pouring a glass of milk as you wait for your breakfast to be ready.
- It also retails with seven different shade settings that are in place to accommodate everyone’s taste in your family. If let’s say, you love your slices lightly toasted but someone else in your family (say your child) loves their toasties darkly toasted, then the appliance has got both of you covered.
- Three functions have also been included in the appliance: the bagel, cancel, and defrost settings. The bagel setting is in place to toast only the cut side of your bagels. It also toasts bagels in a way that the outside remains crusty while the inside remains warm and soft.
- The cancel function is in place to help you halt the entire toasting progress if anything accidentally gets stuck in the appliance. If it is your first-time using a toaster, iFedio 2 Slice Toaster has got you covered as well. It is one of the easiest to use toasters.
- Another feature worth noting is the high lift lever. For those who are not accustomed to what this addition does, it is in place to help you retrieve your toasted slices without burning and hurting your fingers. When your slices are ready, press down the lever and your slices will be raised high enough to take them out.
- Another instance that this feature will come in handy when you are dealing with small slices.
- To top off the list of features of iFedio 2 Slice Toaster, it also comes with a one-year warranty. This fact itself is sufficient to prove to you that the manufacturing company of this appliance has faith in the product that they designed.
- And if you have children running around your kitchen as you prepare your toasties, then they will be protected by the cool to the touch exterior of the toaster.
- Retails with a one-year warranty
- Cool to the touch exterior to protect you from burns
- Evenly toasts bread slices
- Consistent with its toasting results
- Comes with a high lift lever to protect your fingers

- If you tend to get carried away while preparing your breakfast and end up burning your slices, then you will love this Lofter 4 Slice Toaster because it retails with an LED Countdown timer display.
- It has also been fitted with the 3 basic functions (defrost, reheat, cancel) to ensure it meets all your basic toasting needs in the kitchen. The slots are also extra wide in order to fit any bread slices you would like to prepare.
- If the people in your family love their slices toasted to different levels, then you will love the six different browning levels it retails with, and its dual independent control panel to create differently toasted slices at the same time.
- Extra-wide slots
- Six different browning settings to pick from
- LED countdown timer included
- Easy to clean and store
- ETL and FDA certified
- Not fast enough
- The power cord length could be longer
- This enumeration would be incomplete if I did not include a masterpiece form Smeg. That is why Smeg TSF01RDUS deserves a spot in this enumeration.
- To begin with, it retails in seven different colors, which make it the perfect gift option. When it comes to the toasting department, it is impressive as well, thanks to its 2 extra-wide slots and six different browning levels you can pick from.
- It is easy to handle and at the end of the process, due to the automatic slice pop-up feature, the slices will be lifted high enough to easily retrieve them. Its anti-slip feet keep the product at its spot, being safe to use even for children.
- Seven different shades to pick from
- Six browning levels included
- Feet are anti-slip
- Includes a removable crumb tray
- The three basic toasting modes included
- Not everyone appreciates the retro design
- As its name suggests, this Nostalgia RTOS200AQ Bagel Toaster is exactly what you are looking for if you need an appliance that can deliver bagels that are crispy on the outside but warm and soft on the inside.
- The slots are also wide enough to fit the thickest slices, such as croissants, English muffins, and even artisan bread slices. Use the five browning levels to toast all your slices to your preferred shade. Thanks to the slide-out crumb tray, cleaning the tool won’t be a hassle either. To top it off, its cord storage under the unit help you keep the kitchen tidy and clean.
- Easy to clean
- Easy to use
- Stylish retro design
- Lighted control buttons included
- The slots are wide and deep
- Not very strong build
- The highest toasting level burnt my slices
- This CUSINAID Stainless Steel Toaster also easily qualifies as one of the fastest toasters out there today. It delivered two perfectly toasted bread and bagel slices in less than four minutes, which is really impressive compared to most appliances out there.
- It also ensures all your slices come out evenly toasted, regardless of the browning setting you pick. And by the way, there are seven different toasting levels to pick from. You’ll also appreciate the one-year warranty that is included.
- Comes with a removable crumb tray
- The power cord is long enough
- Seven different browning levels to pick from
- Compact and lightweight
- Cool to the touch exterior
- The design won’t impress everyone
- The slots are not deep enough to fit tall, homemade bread slices
- The last, but by no means the least toaster in this enumeration is the KEEMO Retro Toaster. If you have been hunting for the best toaster for a while now, then you must have come across the brand KEEMO. It is currently one of the top trademarks in the marketplace when it comes to designing the best retro toasters. This advantage can be explained by the fact the company has been in existence for lots of decades.
- With that in mind, let us look at what sets this Toaster apart in particular. To begin with, thanks to the turquoise blue color, you can rest assured that the appliance will blend in with any kitchen interior décor you may have in mind.
- And if the blue color is not your favorite, then you have three more colors to pick from. I found the fact the toaster retails in multiple colors a great advantage because it allowed me to get it as a gift for my loving mom, whose favorite color is black.
- That said, if it were up to me, I’d say all colors are beautiful, practical, and making the appliance somewhat unique.
- The second feature of this KEEMO Retro Toaster you will appreciate is its ease of use. Thanks to the easy one-touch LED indicator button that has been included, you won’t have any trouble handling this appliance, even if you have no experience whatsoever when it comes to toasters.
- When your slices are readily toasted, ensure that you avail the high lift lever to retrieve them. This addition ensures that you won’t burn your fingers as you retrieve small slices out from the tool.
- Another feature of this gadget that I loved personally is the removable crumb tray because I hate regularly cleaning kitchen appliances. This part has been added by KEEMO on this appliance to collect dirt and debris that fall from your toasted slices.
- When you want to clean the toaster, all you need to do is take out the crumb tray, wipe it off using a clean cloth, then place it back into the appliance and get to work. The crumb tray is also dishwasher safe by the way.
- If you tend to carry out your toasting operations in other rooms besides the kitchen, then KEEMO Retro Toaster has got you covered as well. It is lightweight and retails with an extremely long cord. You can easily use it in your living room without having to worry if the cord will be able to reach the socket.
- And when you are done using the appliance, all you need to do is tuck the cord storage under the appliance and place it safely on your kitchen counter.
- Boasts an automatic pop up feature
- Very versatile
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean thanks to the removable crumb tray
- Boasts a retro design that will complement any kitchen interior
- Cord storage to avoid clutter on your kitchen counter
- Takes up a little bit too much space on your counter

The best toasters are spectacular appliances that everyone should have in their household. And with this list, I believe I have eliminated the struggle that is associated with going through hundreds of appliances in the market to find the best one.
That said, even after the enumeration you are still having a hard time picking the best one from the six, allow me to give you my professional recommendation. If I had to pick from the enumeration above, I would pick the KEEMO Retro Toaster as the best toaster.
This appliance delivered everything I had in mind and it has been designed by a reputable company, meaning I can believe in its ability to deliver.
