Toasters: Best Buys
Want to find a toaster you can rely on?
Instead of blindly choosing a toaster that browns unevenly, leaves your bread limp or is even dangerous, Which? is here to help you pick a reliable one.
We've tested and rated a over 100 toasters for evenness of toasting, speed, versatility and ease of use, as well as safety and build quality.
- In our tests we look at how evenly, and well, bread and other foods are toasted
- Our tests take eight weeks to complete and involve a team of electrical safety experts
- We check how easy the toaster is to use - including how well different bread sizes and types fit into, and can be removed from, its toasting slots
The Best Buy toasters aren't always the most expensive. Find out which models we recommended with a £1 trial subscription to Which?
What makes a Which? Best Buy?
We test thousands of products each year at Which? in a controlled environment that enables us to accurately repeat each test on each product - meaning our reviews are directly comparable. We buy the products we test ourselves, and go through great lengths to shape our test programmes to match the way you use the products.
Find out more about how we test products and how we find the models that deserve to be Best Buys in the video below.
Toaster reviews you can trust
We've looked at over 30 brands of toasters, including De'Longhi, Breville and Kenwood, and looked at four-slice and two-slice toasters of ranging prices.
Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test. This means that as well as recommending great products, we can highlight the ones to avoid.
