Nothing frustrates us more here at Which? than finding a brilliant kettle that has a terrible matching toaster. It’s harder than you might think to find a stylish and top-scoring pair.
We’ve tested hundreds of kettles and toasters, and the good news is we’ve found three outstanding Best Buy kettle and toaster pairs, plus some high-scorers worth considering.
Our best matching sets come in a range of styles and colours to suit different kitchens, and our cheapest Best Buy set costs just £50 for the pair.
To find a Best Buy kettle and toaster set that’s perfect for your kitchen, head to our kettle reviews and use the filters to see models with matching toasters.
Find the best kettle and toaster set
While the look of your kettle and toaster set is important, you’ll also want to be sure you’ve got the features that are most important to you.
If you know you want a kettle which boils quietly, for example, or a toaster with high lift (for getting teatime treats such as crumpets out without burning your fingers), you can use our review filters and individual test scores to find your perfect model, and then see if it has a matching appliance.
Kettles and toasters in colours to match your kitchen
Black, cream, red and stainless steel are the kettle and toaster colours you’re most likely to see on the shelves, but you can get a kettle and toaster set in almost any hue.
Morphy Richards‘ popular ‘Accents’ range comes in a range of colours which are updated every six months or so. They are often priced attractively too, with an offer where you get the kettle or toaster half-price if you buy the matching set. Find out if they’ll be a help in the kitchen, or just a pretty face, with our full reviews of the Morphy Richards Accents kettle and Morphy Richards Accents toaster.
