Need a new toaster. Any favorites?

Date: May 05, 2021 09:13AM
Bought this one a year ago, ready to throw it out.

Yes cheap amd performs like it!

Will spend more this time.

Exterior gets dangerously hot.

Bottom flap for removing crumbs broke off.

Poor toasting controls. You get warm bread or burned.

Lemon,

This one from Oster:

I've had it my office since 2017. Got the Oster based on a recommendation by Wirecutter and it actually lived up to the review. Wirecutter prefers a model from Cuisinart that is similar in price these days.

We have the Cuisinart CPT-420 Touch to Toast Leverless 2-Slice Toaster, Brushed Stainless Steel

It's coming up on 4 years of good toasting from waffles to various breads and bagels.

My favorite feature is the "countdown" bars that give you an approximation of how much time is left. I have learned to make use of that time unloading the dishwasher, cleaning the coffeemaker, or other tasks so I am not mindlessly watching and waiting for toast.

.....never use a drunk relative to give a toast......and wedding toasters can be the worse because they are already drunk by the time the toast is given......

.....try to choose someone 'responsible' or at least someone who you know speaks well, especially under tense conditions....

Robert,

I've seen some comments that the wider slots for bagels and such may lead to uneven toasting.

I like that Oster, does it toast thin (read: standard) slices evenly?

FWP, I know, but since I've stepped up my butter game, why slack off on the toasting, LOL!

I also keep Kerrygold on the counter and slather it on the toast.

RAM,

The Oster handles everything my staff has thrown into it surprisingly well. Bread. Bagels. Frozen waffles. you name it.

We have the Cuisinart CPT-440 for about 2 years now and really like it. It's on sale at Amazon now for $92.48 if you use the coupon on the page. List is $185.

The 2019 MRF Toaster Debate

Hey, that was my thread!

We settled on the inexpensive, no-frills Cuisinart CPT-122. It's been rock solid for 18 months so far. Much better than toaster before, which had two settings, "Ambient Air Temperature" and "Carbonized."

re the $30 Oster (grey) Robert M linked to, the Model TSSTTRJBG1.
Am I mistaken or is the $24 Model TSSTJC5BBK (stainless) the same?
Looks like the same specs and both are 800 watts. Slight variation in
the styling. Oster Toasters

dunno smiley

edit: side by side comparison

Functionally and feature-wise, they appear to be identical.

The one Robert linked to is possibly a newer model.

The shape and style is different, as noted, and it's slightly smaller than the $24 version.

I was hoping the dark version was actually plastic of some nature, to keep the exterior a little cooler.

It's close quarters on the counter.

I wish that there were a reasonably priced toaster with slots that are both wide and long. No weird funky controls or anything like that. Just something cheap and functional. I simply can't believe that any 2 slot toaster could be worth more than $50.

One other complaint: Why on earth do manufacturers only state the overall dimensions of toasters and not those of the slots? We can easily infer the overall dimensions of the toaster itself from a picture.
