Just like a lot of people, I enjoy having a cup of coffee and toasted bread when I wake up every morning. For this simple reason alone, I always make sure that the toaster in my kitchen is always in working condition. Based on my personal experience, there are a lot of toasters today that don’t last very long. After using them for a few months or even weeks, they would break down. This is why whenever I purchase another toaster, I make sure that it was manufactured by a trusted brand. The price may be more but it’s worth it because at least the toaster will last long.
I think the best toasters in the market today are the ones made by the brands Cuisinart, Oster, Black and Decker, and Breville. These are brands that are known for the high quality of their products. This is why I always prefer their toasters when I go shopping for another one. Their price tags are not only very affordable, they are also sturdy enough to last for years if they are well taken care off. I also want my toasters to have features that can help me toast bread more efficiently and quickly. Needless to say, the brands I just mentioned have the features I’m looking for.
Another thing that I look for in a toaster is the overall design and size. I have a fairly small kitchen so I want my toaster to be a bit smaller as well so that it won’t occupy too much space in the kitchen counter. As long as the toaster can toast at least two slices of bread in one go, it’s fine by me (Guide: How to make toast). However, the toasting time should be quick because I’m always in a rush when I wake up in the morning to get ready for work. The faster the toasting time, the better.
