The latest Which? toaster tests have uncovered a bargain Best Buy toaster for under £30.
Good toasters are harder to find than you might think, and we’ve found that price isn’t always a reliable indicator of toasting prowess.
We’ve tested models that cost hundreds of pounds but can’t make a decent slice, so we were delighted to discover a brilliant, affordable toaster in our test of new and popular models.
Our new top scorer is one of the best toasters we’ve seen for toasting bread evenly. To find out which one it was – and view the full list of recommended toasters – head straight to our list of Best Buy toasters.
New toasters reviewed
Several of the toasters we’ve just tested have extra features designed to persuade you to part with your cash. We’ve tried out models from Breville and Kalorik with extra-large slots for bigger bread, and a Russell Hobbs glass toaster that allows you to keep a close eye on your toast as it browns.
We always look out for innovative models when selecting models to test. But we also make sure each toaster does its key job properly – making great toast. You can trust us to cut through the marketing jargon to uncover the toasters that won’t let you down in the mornings.

How Which? tests toasters
We test toasters more thoroughly than anyone else. Our independent toaster tests seek out the ‘holy grail’ of perfect golden-brown toast, carefully examining each slice for any burnt or unbrowned areas, and marking down any stripy or patchy slices.
We also rate each toaster for speed, ability to fit different slices of bread, and ease of use. Avoid ending up with a toaster that veers wildly from burnt to underdone toast, or that you have to hover over to prevent a toasting disaster, and use our independent toaster reviews to find your perfect toaster.
