Quick Buying Guide for 4 Slice Toasters
This is the number of watts that the product has. It is this power that will determine just how quickly you can make your toast. The higher this number is the better but just be aware that the more power used, the more expensive it is on your electricity bill.
Most toasters use between 1200-1500 watts.
This is simply a feature that allows you to set the right amount of browning for you. Typically this setting is controlled by a small knob with numbers on it. The lower the number, the lighter your bread will be toasted.
2 Slices or 4?
Sometimes you will just want a couple of slices of toast, or perhaps just toast a single bagel. Make sure that this feature is available otherwise you are heating up other elements which costs money and are of no real use to you.
Many of these toasters have a “high lift” feature. As you know bread comes in different sizes. This feature allows you to take out smaller slices without getting your fingers burned.
Defrost and Cancel Features
As the name would suggest, the defrost facility will allow you to toast bread straight from the freezer as it has this feature. The cancel feature is handy if you want to quickly stop your bread from toasting.
Wide Slot Feature
The wide slot feature allows you to toast thicker bread, tea cakes, muffins and crumpets.
Removable Crumb Tray
Over time and as you toast, bread crumbs will fall down through the toaster. Most of these will come with a crumb tray, which can be slid out and that makes cleaning your toaster a great deal faster.
