Five best toasters for every budget

Impressive design and perfect browning every time...

Updated: 

If you want perfectly-browned toast every time and something that will look great on your worktop, here's our pick of the best two-slice machines around...

1. Magimix Vision

It doesn't come cheap, but this toaster is the business. We love the glass-front panel, allowing you to watch the bread brown as it cooks, as well as the choice of colours. It's versatile enough to take different sizes of bread, from thick slices of fresh bloomer to crumpets, and also comes with a handy 'lift' button so you don't burn your fingers. As you would expect, it toasts to perfection every time.

2. KitchenAid Two Slice Toaster 5KMT221

If your budget can stretch, KitchenAid's smart littler toaster won't disappoint. It recently came top in the Good Houskeeping Institute's review of toasters, scoring 94/100, with reviewers praising its consistent browning ability. It boasts a shade control dial (for the perfect colour toast), defrost, bagel, and keep-warm options – plus a handy 'lift' function. Available in red, black, grey or cream, it will look great on your worktop too.

3. Bosch TAT6805GB


Those who favour sleek design and top performance will fall in love with this stylish machine from Bosch. Its single slot is able to take everything from thick doorsteps of bread to crumpets, and you can also heat croissants and bread rolls on its nifty bun rack. The controls are simple to use and the browning is even, although a little darker than some toasters.

4. Kenwood Toaster TTP200

On a budget and want something simple but reliable? Kenwood's True Toaster is a great little machine that will do the job. It's easy to use and clean, and browns evenly on all settings. While it may take a little while longer to toast than some, the results are worth waiting for. For the price, it's hard to beat.

5. Morphy Richards Chroma

Another great little toaster that won't set you back too much. This machine browns evenly time after time, and is easy to use and clean thanks to its crumb tray. We also like the reheat setting, allowing you to warm up toast without having to re-cook it. It comes in a variety of colours.
