There’s nothing better than a crisp slice of toast in the morning. Why have two pieces when you can have four? Whether you’re looking for a basic 4-slice toaster or a fancier toaster oven, nothing beats having a machine that can toast your bagels, bread, pastries, frozen waffles, and maybe even a small pizza. A toaster is an important appliance for your kitchen, and the number of products available can be overwhelming.

That’s where Reviewed comes in. By testing tons of toasters and reading some of the best (and worst) reviews online, we’ve been able to assemble a list of 4-slice toasters and toaster ovens that will evenly toast your bread without emptying your wallet.

The Black and Decker 4-Slice Toaster Oven is a good choice if you’re short on space or just want to buy a toaster for cheap. It’s not much larger than a regular toaster and is dependable for toast, baked goods, and broiled foods.

The mechanical timer is relatively easy to use, as you can select a stay-on mode. The downsides? This toaster oven doesn’t fit as much variety as some of the larger models. When we tested baking refrigerated biscuits, the full package wouldn’t fit into the toaster easily. Space issues aside, this toaster oven is still a solid choice if you want something cheap and simple.

Pros

  • Even toasting

  • 30-minute timer

  • Four functions

Cons

  • May burn food easily

This toaster oven is a good choice if you don’t want a larger model, but still want something that can fit most foods easily. The Black and Decker stainless steel toaster oven easily fits a nine-inch pizza and four slices of toast, which should suit most of your toasting needs.

This model has four functions, including baking, broiling, toasting, and warming your food. It also boasts a 30-minute timer and removable crumb tray. Black and Decker claim their toaster has “EvenToast Technology,” though some reviewers say it can burn your food.

Pros

  • Four cooking functions

  • Compact size

  • Rack and pan included

Cons

  • Fits less than other models

The GE Stainless Steel Toaster is two toasters in one, with seven shade settings, and its toaster slots are wider than most. It can handle a wide selection of foods, as well, including pastries, waffles, bagels, and of course toast.

The removable crumb tray makes it easier to keep your toaster clean. At 1,500 Watts, the GE will brown your slices of bread fast. The variety of toasting options is very unique for a toaster and a major selling point. But the number of options can also be a downside, as some reviewers say it can burn your food.

Pros

  • 7 toast settings

  • Wide toaster slots

  • Removable crumb tray

Cons

  • May burn food easily

Cuisinart CPT-180

This Cuisinart toaster is a solid little number, made of brushed stainless steel and boasting six-setting browning dials, dual reheat, defrost, and even bagel buttons with LED indicators.

Its toasting slots are wide at one and a half inches and can accommodate bagels and most types of bread. With its custom controls, it claims to be able to toast your foods evenly, too, though some reviewers have noted that this is not the case. All in all, the Cuisinart seems like a solid choice if you’re looking for a basic 4-slice toaster that won’t break the bank.

Pros

  • Dual control panels

  • Custom settings

  • Wide toasting slots

Cons

  • Some reviewers say it toasts unevenly

Hamilton Beach 24633

This Hamilton Beach model does exactly what it’s supposed to do: toast your bread and bagels. It claims to fit everything from bagels to English muffins and frozen waffles, with an adjustable shade selector and a dedicated bagel setting. It’s simply designed and easy to operate, but some reviewers say it doesn’t last long.

That being said, it can defrost and is very affordable. This toaster might be right for you if you’re looking for something that can get the job done without spending a lot of money, assuming you aren’t looking for a long-term commitment.

Pros

  • Fits bagels

  • Defrosts

  • Easy to reach small slices

Cons

  • Some reviewers say it doesn’t last long

  • Narrow
