Recommended View more details.

We typically recommend toasters that score at least 75% overall and pass our safety checks. We may take member reviews into account, looking at how reliable the toaster is long-term (something we can't easily assess in our labs).

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of performance (70%) and ease of use (30%).

Overall performance score View more details.

The performance score is made up of browning evenness and consistency of results (50%), multigrain bread (20%), single-slice bread (15%), and frozen bread (15%).

Ease of use score View more details.

The ease of use score is made up of controls (40%), cleaning the exterior (30%), and crumb removal/cleaning (30%).

Frozen bread score View more details.

We toast bread that has come directly out of the freezer. Where available, the defrost setting is used. Slices are assessed for evenness of cooking and consistency of colour across cycles.


Multigrain bread score View more details.

Score for toasting multigrain bread. We toast a soy and linseed bread for this test.

Single-slice score View more details.

Score for toasting a single slice of bread.

Whether the toaster is able to reproduce the same results over and over again without variation. A high score means you'll see consistent results.
