Which? unveils a new Best Buy toaster

Has Which? found a toaster that makes perfect toast?


The latest test results are in and after scrutinising slice after slice of toast Which? can reveal the toasters that make the best toast.

Ten toasters have been fully tested. But, only one toasts enough of the bread and gives an even golden-brown colour for Which? to award it a Best Buy. 

Read about which toasters have been awarded a Which? Best Buy in the Which? toaster reviews.

Cheap toasters

The Which? expert labs have recently tested models ranging from just £17 up to a budget-busting £80. 

So, there are models to suit everyone’s pocket. But an expensive price tag doesn’t guarantee you’ll get perfect results. 

The best toaster

Which? toaster expert Lisa Galliers said: ‘We’ve had a real mixed bunch of toasters this time. We’ve tested 2-slice and 4-slice toasters, and we’ve uncovered some great looking models. 

‘But, while some might look the part on the kitchen work-top not all could deliver a decent slice of toast. 

‘Total test scores for the latest toasters we’ve tested range from an impressive 72% down to just 46%, and some just barely even toasted our bread at all.’

Toaster reviews

Just because a toaster makes decent toast doesn’t guarantee it’ll be reliable.
