Today we’re talking about the best slice toasters! Why? Well, you know how they say “the best thing since sliced bread”? Slice Toasters are pretty much the best thing to happen to sliced bread…and English muffins, bagels, and so on. Lately, my slice toaster has been begging for retirement. Every time I make a waffle, I think “I need to get a new one.” I use my toaster a lot, so I want something that rocks. Check out the few that I’m thinking of getting and help me narrow down my decision!

The Cuisinart Compact Stainless Steel 2-Slice Toaster is a modern-looking toaster that saves a great deal of space because of its compact size. The two slots are wide enough so you can toast thin slices of bread or thick bagel slices. This toaster also features a six setting “doneness” dial, a crumb tray that slides out and controls for bagels as well as defrosting and reheating. It comes in several different models, starting with a basic (which we’ve linked to) and going up in both price and features.
Waring Professional Cool Touch 2-Slice Toaster-
The Waring Professional Cool Touch 2-Slice Toaster provides you with bagels, waffles, bread or English muffins that are perfectly and evenly toasted. The slots are wide enough to hold bagels as well as artisan bread. This 1,000 watt 2-slice toaster features a housing that is cool to the touch along with toasting slots that are self-centering. Also, the toaster has a cancel knob, so your items are toasted just the way you like them. Since it’s capable of slicing those thick bagels, it’s perfect for our bagel salmon sandwich recipe.
The West Bend 4-Slice Egg and Muffin Toaster is the ultimate all-in-one breakfast assistant. The four extra-wide slots are ideal for toasting English muffins, bread, croissants or bagels. The toaster also has room for you to make two scrambled eggs, two poached eggs, eight hard-boiled eggs or eight soft-boiled eggs. This West Bend Toaster model features variable settings so you can toast your items as light or dark as you want. The toaster even has a meat tray that allows you to warm up pre-cooked meats. This one may very well be my favorite. The only drawback: I’m short on counter space, and it does have a pretty big counter footprint.
Black and Decker Stainless Steel 4-Slice Toaster-
The Black and Decker Stainless Steel 4-Slice Toaster features a sleek and modern design that fits perfect on any countertop with any décor. This particular model has extra-wide slots for all your favorite slice toaster items, plus it as self-adjusting guides to make sure the smaller guys don’t get lost in there. Love the electronic push-button controls, quick settings for frozen foods and bagels, and the easy cancel option. It also has a convenient slide-out tray. This particular baby would be perfect for reheating those homemade frozen waffles, like our yummy apple butter waffles.
