Toasters and Toaster Ovens

Toasters

Toasters are available in many styles to fit your individual decor and needs. Standard toasters are usually two or four slices. Select a toaster that has the options important to you. Consider slot width, darkness control, styling and design. Some toasters will have wide slots and can accommodate thick slices of bread, rolls or bagels. Most will have a dial to regulate darkness. Some four slice toasters, like the Cuisinart pictured below, have dual controls. Look for a toaster that has a crumb tray to facilitate cleaning. You can also choose between a traditional shape toaster or an elogated style. To prolong the life of your toaster clean it periodically. Remember never reheat buttered toast. Do not use a knife or metal object to help dislodge a stuck slice of bread with the toaster plugged in.
