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!

Cuisinart Compact Stainless Steel 2-Slice Toaster-
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.
West Bend 4-Slice Egg and Muffin Toaster-
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.

I think it is very necessary to have a nice toaster that could make the work pretty quick so you can have a stress-less breakfast before running to work. The Egg & Muffin toaster sounds like a good one to have at home.
My son just asked for a toaster, lol He’s getting practical in his old age. 😉
Wow, the egg and toaster one! Never saw that before, that’s really neat! I’ll have to find this
I have never seen a muffin toaster before. That’s cool! I don’t even own a toaster. I just use my oven.
I love the West Bend 4-Slice Egg and Muffin Toaster! That is so cool and would be so convenient for students or the elderly or just about anyone. I have to gift this to my mother. She would love it.
My old toaster is showing signs of retirement. I must consider these toasters the next time I buy one.
One of the first things a newly wed couple should have is a good toaster! That was one of my wedding gifts and I loved it. Gives bread a whole new life when it is warm and slightly browned.
Wow toasters have come a long way! I normally just use broil on my oven to toast bread.
I like a multi piece toaster with large gaps to fit bagels and texas toast. Nothing worse than getting bread jammed in the toaster
These sound like some good ones. The egg and muffin one would be perfect for people who love breakfast sandwiches.
Thanks for the helpful brand call-out.
These look like good models to me.
I’ve never really thought of toasters before. We have one and it’s not the best, so I should really invest in a better one.
I love a slice of whole grain toast with my breakfast. I really like the toaster and egg-maker combo. That seems convenient.
Great list! I will keep it for when our toaster goes ka-put!
A good toaster is imperative. Burnt toast is the worst.
Having a good toaster can make or break any breakfast. I love my toast just right and hate it when it is burnt.
