The best ... toasters

Several of these toasters have features that lessen the little annoyances of making toast. One has a screen that counts down your toast's arrival time.

DeLonghi DTT900
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.
Price: $80

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.
Price: $260

Kitchenaid 2-Slice Metal Toaster
Although boxy and dull-looking, this model produces “quality results” every time. The dishwasher-safe crumb tray also makes cleanup easy.
Price: $90

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.”
Price: $130
Contact: Brevilleusa.com

Krups TT6190
“Impatient breakfasters” will appreciate the small LCD screen that counts down your toast’s arrival, even if the “outdated blue display looks like a cheap digital watch.”
Price: $70
