10 Best Toasters UK 2022 | Breville, Dualit and More

The humble toaster is easily one of the most used items in everyone’s kitchen. It helps us start the day off on the right foot, whips us up a buttery crumpet snack whilst we wait for the kettle to boil, and has even been known to dispel monster hangovers if you have enough bread for a toast-a-thon. But with such a mammoth selection out there, it's difficult to pinpoint exactly what kind of toaster is best suited to us. 


In our buying guide, we’re going to cover which features you need to look out for when buying a new toaster such as if they have a crumb tray. We’ll be looking at 2- and 4- slice options from some of our favourite brands such as Dualit, Breville & Russell Hobbs.

How to Choose a Toaster in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Select the Correct Toaster Size for Your Family Preferences
  2. Search for Additional Functions and Varying Heating Setting for Complete Control
  3. Check That It Has the Right Amount of Power for the Perfect Piece of Toast

1. Pick the Right Size Toaster for Your Family Preferences by Opting for 2-Slice, 4-Slice or Extra-Wide Slots

1. Pick the Right Size Toaster for Your Family Preferences by Opting for 2-Slice, 4-Slice or Extra-Wide Slots

Getting the right size toaster for you and your belly (or bellies) is essential. If you’re living alone then chances are that you only need a toaster that can produce 2 slices at a time. Plus, you’ll appreciate the smaller size they come in if you don’t happen to have much space in your kitchen.


But if you have an army of hungry little horrors (partners included) or just really love a good piece of toast, you will benefit from purchasing a larger toaster that can easily produce 4 or more slices at a time. These toasters can also sometimes have separate heating controls for each slot, which is a bonus if the people in your household had varying toast preferences.


Also, another thing to consider is an extra-wide toast slot. If you think you are something of a toast connoisseur, then you are going to want to experiment with different types of artisanal bread and other delights. Make sure that this is a viable option by getting a toaster that can facilitate this.

2. Look For the Extra Functions and Number of Heat Settings for Perfect Control Over Your Toast

2. Look For the Extra Functions and Number of Heat Settings for Perfect Control Over Your Toast

Of course, we understand that the first and most important function of your toaster is that it provides a consistent and even toasting. So, buying a toaster with an adjustable heat setting will help you achieve your perfect slice


But nowadays toasters come with an array of other useful services. For example, a crumb tray that will help keep the toaster clean, reheat option to quickly zaps the toast again if you missed it the first time, and a defrost option for those that keep their bread in the freezer, as well as other options such as an eject button and high lift, so no more singed fingers. 


Don't forget, you'll need to store your bread somewhere. Have a look at our favourite bread bins

3. Get the Right Amount of Power You Need for the Perfect Piece of Toast

3. Get the Right Amount of Power You Need for the Perfect Piece of Toast

The more power, the quicker the toast. However, if your model is going to be pumping out massive amounts of heat this often means it’s aimed at speed and not consistency, which will leave the bread with uneven toasting. The ideal power for a 2-slice is around 1200kW whereas for a 4-slice something closer to 1800kW is better. 


Also, check to see if it comes with energy efficiency. This gives you the option of only using the number of slots you need. If you only want one slice of toast but two slots are heating up, one side is going to come out much browner than the other. Having this will make the toaster much more efficient and will save on energy.
