Before selecting a toaster, it is worthwhile spending some time thinking about the type of toaster you want. Think about the following things before purchasing your toaster.
How many slots do you want in your toaster?
If you cook toast for a large family each morning, it may be worthwhile considering a toaster with four slots or eight slots. What kind of style and color do you want your toaster to be? Do you like a short bulky toaster or do you prefer a long sleek version? Would you like a stainless steel finish, a chrome finish or something colorful? Toaster covers now come in a variety of colors, including yellow and pink.
What will you be toasting in your toaster?
Will it mainly be thin bread or do you need a toaster that has the capacity to toast thick bread, muffins and waffles? Will you need extra functions for the types of food you will be cooking?
Do you have small children in the house? Will you need safety features such as a cool touch and automatic stop?
How easy is the toaster to clean and repair? Does it have a removable crumb-tray?
Is your toaster a recommended brand and does it come with a warranty?
How much money do you want to spend to get the type of toaster you want? Is it worth spending a bit more for some additional features?
