Kitchen toasters are small and versatile appliances with many benefits. They are available in a variety of sizes and various materials and styles to complement most home decors. Many of the higher-end models also come with useful features to expand their ability beyond making a simple slice of toast.
Kitchen toasters can contain one, two, three or as many as six slots. Traditional toasters are suitable for toasting bread. Use a wide slot toaster to cook up bagels, pastries and even small, round slices of frozen pizza for a quick and easy meal. Also referred to as pop-up toasters, they contain heating elements that can produce evenly toasted bread on either one or both sides in a matter of a minute or two.
For more versatility in what you can cook, toaster ovens provide plenty of convenience. They come in a variety of capacities and with several handy features. Similar to a stainless steel two-slice toaster, they are a good option for toasting bread. The difference is that instead of placing the slices into a slot, you put them onto a tray for browning. Because of the open space, a toaster oven is suitable for making a tray of vegetables or sweet baked treats and for reheating food.
Toasters come in traditional shapes, and some models, such as the four-slice long toaster, can accommodate bigger and thicker slices of bread or bagels that otherwise would not toast completely. Many of today's toaster ovens also function as a rotisserie oven, an air fryer and a defroster. Other models can serve as a true mini convection oven, allowing for faster, more even cooking results. In addition to several settings to achieve your desired degree of browning, some kitchen toasters have touch screens. Instead of using traditional coils, the models use an advanced heating technology, and have settings like frozen, fresh and reheat.
Toasters today can go well beyond their original function of creating a toasted slice of bread. Use one as a bread maker and to create meals for the family. Choose from a variety of styles, including traditional, retro or contemporary, and materials such as shiny stainless steel, brushed chrome and copper. There's even your choice of colored ceramic or plastics. Many of the kitchen toasters also come with built-in wire storage to maintain a neat appearance.
Accessories such as cozy covers prevent dust and kitchen splatters to keep the toaster clean and maintain its performance level. Use silicone-tipped tongs or long-handled tongs made of a variety of natural woods to prevent interior damage. A warming and toast rack, round and ventilated trays and a sandwich cage are a few other accessories that are beneficial for a toaster oven.
