Sleek, corner-free, and sporting only two buttons, this toaster “would make Steve Jobs proud.” The only problem is the “thin slots” that make it hard to toast bulky slices or bagels.
Dualit 2-Slice Toaster
This toaster’s manually operated lift leaves toast down and warm until you’re ready for it. Each model is hand-assembled.
Kitchenaid 2-Slice Metal Toaster

Breville Die-Cast 2-Slice Smart Toaster
As close to a robot as a toaster has yet come, this model has a button to lower slices, a feature to “check in mid-toast,” and an “A Bit More” button for “fine-tuning.”
“Impatient breakfasters” will appreciate the small LCD screen that counts down your toast’s arrival, even if the “outdated blue display looks like a cheap digital watch.”
