1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a toaster

1.1 Size and Slot

Regarding the size and slot of a toaster, you must ask yourself three questions - How many bread slices I will prepare at a time? How wide should the slots be? How much space will the toaster take in my kitchen?

Number of Bread Slices

The most common type of toaster is the one in which you can toast two slices of bread at a time. Besides, if you want to serve more people, there are also toasters for four slices of bread at a time. There are also toasters with one and three slots, but still, the number of pieces goes up to a maximum of four.

If you are a bachelor or a couple, then a toaster with two slots is enough. However, for a larger family, of course, you must choose four slot toasters as that will save your time by preparing four toasted sandwiches simultaneously. 

Slot Size

Toasts are not made for a universal size bread. You might want to toast more than just regular bread at times. And that bread might be thick or of different shape. In such a case, the width of the slots determines whether or not it is possible to toast that bread. In addition to thickness, the length of the slots is also an important aspect. If you bake bread that differs from the standard size, you want these slices to fit. 

Dimension

Dimension of toaster matters when you have a small kitchen or a designated place for a toaster, or you don’t want your kitchen stocked from head to toe with all kinds of kitchen appliances. If the place for your toaster is in the top kitchen cupboard, you will have to consider its weight because no one feels like lifting a heavy appliance every time.

1.2 Auto-stop

If a toaster has this feature, your toaster will stop automatically once the set time is over, and the bread will pop out. This is a useful function since you don’t have to keep an eye on the bun. Also, this reduces the chance of burnt sandwiches.

1.3 Crumb Tray

The crumb tray is helpful as it collects all the breadcrumbs. This way, you don’t have to keep turning the toaster upside down and throw crumbs on your countertop. You simply take the crumb tray out of the toaster and empty it into the trash can.

1.4 Cancel Button

If you think your bread is toasted enough and your toaster is not going to shut off automatically anytime soon, you can end the “toast’’process by pressing the “cancel” button.

1.5 Defrost

If you freeze bread regularly and don’t have time to wait for the bread to thaw naturally, get a toaster with a defrost feature. It warms up the bread without toasting it. You especially need this feature if you don’t have a microwave, as a microwave defrost bread slices quickly. Defrost feature is also used to toast the bread on one side only to keep it soft on the other side.

1.6 Quick Toast

As the name suggests, this function speeds up the toasting process. Very strong heat is released for delivering toasted bread quickly, so keep a close eye on your toast to not let it burn.

1.7 Cool Wall

While buying electrical appliances or heating appliances, safety is of paramount importance. In the case of toasters, the cool wall feature is essential for safety as it ensures that the toaster does not become red-hot.

Note: Stainless steel toasters usually get hot from the outside even though the cool wall is there as steel is an excellent conductor of heat.

1.8 Adjustable Browning Level

This feature allows you to select the browning level of your bread. Be careful with the settings, as the highest setting can burn the bread quickly.

1.9 Power

Like in the case of any other kitchen appliance, here also the power determines the toaster’s efficiency. Low powered appliances will take longer to toast the bread. Therefore, get a toaster that has at least 800 W power.

1.10 Bread Warming Rack

It is a luxury and valuable feature. A bread warmer rack is made of metal and is located above the slots on the toaster. You can pull it to place a sandwich or bread on top of the toaster rack. The heat from the toaster will warm up the bun and make the crust wonderfully crisp.

1.11 Types of Bread

Not always do you want to toast a classic white bread? You might want to toast a bread that has a different shape or is thicker. Regular toasters are too narrow for any other type of bread like hamburger buns or pita bread. If you want to place these bread in a toaster, look for a model that has a larger or flexible opening.

1.12 Versatility

By now, you must have come to know that a toaster can do much more than just toast bread, and you must keep this in mind while buying this kitchen appliance. Compare your requirements with what all a toaster can do, and you might not have to invest in a few other kitchen appliances like a sandwich toaster.

1.13 Bread Lift

This feature comes in handy to safely lift smaller pieces of bread from the toaster since you do not come into contact with the slots and prevent finger burns.

1.14 Special Features

The classic toast function is common to all toasters, but special functions are limited to only luxury toasters, and some of the features are:

Bagel: This function toasts on one side and warms on the other. SO, you can toast more than bagels using this function, such as sandwiches for crispy and delicious toast results.

Sandwich: If the bagel function doesn’t sound suitable for making a sandwich, then a unique sandwich feature is also there in some toasters. With this feature, the slices will be clamped tightly with no leaking cheese ruining the toaster.

Peek and View: This feature lets you control the toast during the process with no interruption in heating. You can briefly remove the toast to examine.

Cord Storage: It is a standard feature found in many appliances. It is a valuable feature as it allows you to neatly store the toaster’s cord at the bottom of the appliance. 

LCD: Only advanced toasters are equipped with an LCD screen optimally managing the toasting process.

3.1 What is a toaster?

Toasters are electrical bread cookers used in most kitchens to make the bread crunchy and crispy.

Toasters are electrical bread cookers used in most kitchens to make the bread crunchy and crispy.

3.2 How does a toaster work?

A toaster emits infrared heat radiation by the nichrome wires, which become red hot by electric current. This process reduces the percentage of water in the bread and raises its temperature. Eventually, some bread particles begin to caramelise on the surface, giving the desired, pleasant taste. If this happens for too long, the bread will burn due to carbonisation.

3.9 What should I choose between a toaster and sandwich maker?

If you will use a sandwich maker only for sandwiches, then we would suggest getting a toaster that is suitable for both making a toast and sandwich. However, if you are going to buy a multi-functional sandwich maker including a waffle maker, panini, grill, etc., then buy both the appliances because no toaster can be that multi-functional.

  • Toast with nuts. Simply spread cream cheese on the toast and top with some nuts.

  • Nutella toast. Simply spread some Nutella on the toast and top with sliced ​​banana or strawberries.

3.12 What should I choose between a vertical and horizontal toaster?

Yes, two toaster models are there in the market - a horizontal and a vertical one.

A vertical toaster is the most common one with one, two, three or four slots at the top to put the bread. When the bread is toasted, it is automatically pushed up by the appliance. Whereas in the horizontal toaster, the bread is placed on the toaster, and due to the resistance, the bread is toasted. You decide the time how each slice of bread is toasted. Moreover, due to its large size, you can toast types and sizes of bread in it.

4. How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for toaster

4.1 How to clean a toaster?

It is effortless to clean a toaster.

  • Before cleaning a toaster, ensure that it is switched off, the plug has been removed from the socket and cooled down.

  • If your toaster has a crumb tray, empty the same into the dustbin to avoid unpleasant odours.
