The best of... kitchen toasters

Magimix Vision Toaster, Breville Smart Oven, and more

Magimix Vision Toaster
No toaster is perfect, but this high-priced model delivers “the most consistent overall performance.” Credit its quartz heating elements, which produced “flawless” toast every time we fed it just one slice at a time.

Breville Smart Oven
The best toaster oven on the market justifies a similarly lofty price with stellar performance and “a sleek professional look.” It excels at baking and broiling and is roomy enough to accommodate six slices of toast.

Panasonic FlashXpress
A unique double-infrared heating system makes this toaster oven a close runner-up to the Breville. Toasting isn’t quite as even, but it doesn’t even need preheat time to handle baking chores beautifully.

Frigidaire Professional
This “star performer” among midpriced toasters impressed our testers because it “browned bread evenly and consistently from batch to batch.” Handy digital controls include a progress display and a defrost option.

Oster Designed for Life 2-Slice
Fine performance, good looks, and a five-year warranty make this toaster “a hot pick” for those seeking a low-cost option. Unlike many others in its price range, it toasts bread evenly on both sides.
