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.
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.
The KitchenAid Artisan range of toasters is retro in appearance and high in quality. With one touch, the motorised lift control allows you to lift and lower toast, even in the midst of cooking. You can choose between seven different browning settings and the LCD display features a countdown so you know exactly how long until your toast is ready to eat. This model has particularly wide slots so you can even toast thick slices of bread. It also features a removable crumb tray and is available in a variety of colours – from pastel to a minimalist black or cream.
If you are looking for an appliance on a budget or need one just to get you through the next few months, this is the best option. The Sunbeam Quantum Plus toaster is compact in size and weight, with low voltage use. It features seven browning settings, with defrost and reheat settings. The cord storage ensures you keep your kitchen bench neat and it also comes with a removable crumb tray, which means you can keep the kitchen clean with ease. It's a basic toaster that gets the job done at an inexpensive price point.
The Sunbeam Maestro 4 Slice Toaster allows you to take control over the way you like to toast your bread. Feel free to use slice bread, muffins or crumpets in this toaster as they can all be raised up for easy removal. It features a timer countdown via LCD display so you know exactly how long until your toast is ready. You are also able to check the progress of your toast without interrupting the cycle, thanks to the "QuickCheck" button.
Sunbeam's Simply Stylish toaster is available in a premium black and silver finish, following a minimalist style. You can choose from six browning settings, including both a defrost and reheat option. This model ensures even toasting and it features high lift functionality. So whether you are toasting bread or an English muffin, you can remove it with ease. The model comes with a removable crumb tray so you can keep the kitchen area clean and thanks to the toaster's cord storage, your bench stays tidy.
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.
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.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
