Test results for 15 four-slice toasters from $18 to $180

We tested 15 toasters for

  • Evenness and consistency of toasting
  • Toasting four slices, a single slice, frozen bread, crumpets and muffins
  • Ease of use
  • Whether the toaster gets too hot to touch.

  • You can get a good four-slice toaster for around $35-40, but not all cheaper models perform well. Not all expensive models perform well either.
  • If you like to cook crumpets and muffins, you'll want a toaster with wide slots that have a self-centring mechanism to avoid jamming.
