An essential in every household, this is our guide to the best toasters loved by Australians.

Woman putting bread in toaster
Toast is a breakfast staple for many Australian households. Whether you prefer jam, butter, Nutella or Vegemite, toast for breakfast is great regardless if you're running out the door or have a little more time to spare. So having a toaster in your home is a necessity.

Are you trying to find the best on the market? What's going to bring you value for money? We looked at a range of toasters from Appliances Online, Harvey Norman and The Good Guys, specifically the ones with the most and highest-rated reviews. We compared the toaster models that were available across the three retailers and aggregated the scores to present our own Finder rating. These are the best toasters on the market, covering a range of price points.

1. Breville Smart 4 Slice Toaster

Breville's Smart Toaster allows you to be in full control of the way you toast your bread and what level of browning you prefer. The motorised toaster has a LED countdown indicator so you know how long is left. Plus, you can choose the "A Bit More" or the "Lift & Look" settings to check on the progress of your toast. There is also a separate function for "Fruit Bread" where it lightly browns the outside of the bread so you don't burn it. The Smart Toaster also comes with extra wide and long toaster slots to accommodate all types of bread.

What are the different types of toasters available?

When choosing a toaster, you are going to need to decide between a two-slice and four-slice model. The two-slice option is great if you are looking for something compact and it's popular among people living in small houses or apartments.

Four-slice toasters work wonders for families. Everyone gets their breakfast on time and nobody has to wait for their food. They are more expensive than two-slice models and are generally bulkier in size and weight.

Most of the models you find on the market will be made available in both a two-slice and four-slice option.


How to clean a toaster

Gone are the days when you would have to carefully tip the toaster into the sink to get all the crumbs out. Not only is it dangerous, it's just not practical. Most toasters now have a removable crumb tray. Over time, it collects your mess and then you can easily dispose of the crumbs. This is definitely a key factor we recommend looking for when choosing a toaster.
