Toasts never get old because they are simply the most versatile breakfast. Regular toasters were introduced in the late 1800s and since then, they have been using the same heating coil technology.

If you consider yourself a toast-focused consumer you probably know that there are high-tech toasters nowadays; so, why settling for obsolete when you can go smart? We will review some of the smart toasters out there for all the toasts’ lovers.

Things We Love

  • InstaGlo™ Technology. Revolution Cooking has introduced a technology that has changed entirely the heating coils of conventional toasters. It is a diamond-shaped heating system with intuitive time and temperature controls that achieve a faster and more precise toast, every single time. All customers have remarked that this technology delivers the fastest toast; hence, it saves more energy.
  • Food options. The toaster has five food settings you can choose from; bagels, English muffins, bread, toaster pastries, and waffles. Also, it includes 3 toasting modes (fresh, frozen, and reheat), and 7 browning levels.
  • Better results. Its smart algorithms analyze variables such as toaster’s internal temperature to calculate the optimal toast time, depending on the option of your choice.
  • Touchscreen. It includes an easy touchscreen for you to adjust the volume or the brightness level. Also; when the toaster is not in use, the screen will display an analog or digital clock.
  • Auto glide. No matter what is it you’re toasting; with an automatic lower and lifting, no toast is going to get stuck. This will also make the appliance easier to clean.
  • Beautiful design. Customers love it because it is a minimalist design that goes great in a modern kitchen; but also, classic enough to belong in a traditional kitchen.
  • Thermal safety shut down. After extensive continuous use, the Start button will be disabled and a “Recalibrating” message will be seen on the touchscreen while your toaster cools down. Once your toaster is ready for use, the Start button will be reactivated.

What’s Not to Like

  • Warranty. Some customers have remarked that a pricey gadget should have a longer warranty. Revolution Cooking offers a one-year warranty for products that have a material or workmanship defect and it does not cover failures caused by abuse or accidental damage.

Final Remarks

The R180 Toaster is the premium model with the least negative feedback. The design goes great in any kitchen; it toasts fast and evenly, and you can choose among many food options to toast your bread. The one thing it could be better is the warranty; for example, Wolf toasters have a 5-year warranty. However; the performance and durability of this toaster have been remarked as phenomenal, therefore, you likely won’t need to use the warranty.

Final Remarks

The toaster fits up to 4 slices of bread of almost any type and it has a 5-year warranty; however, there are some negative comments about the toasting performance.

The difference between this model and the previous one is that this one fits 2 slices of bread, instead of 4; however, regarding the features, it has the same things to love.

Things We Love

  • Easy to clean. Its crumb tray slides out for easy cleaning.
  • Bagel setting. With this setting, your bagel will be toast on the inside and warm on the outside.

Final remarks

What people like the most about this model is its design. Wolf toasters are the most acclaimed when it comes to the esthetic; however, when you get a premium toaster – hence, it is not going to be cheap – you expect fast, even toast.  As with the previous Wolf model, this one has negative feedback regarding the result of toasts.

4. Mitsubishi Electric Bread Oven TO-ST1-T

Disclosure: we may receive commissions from purchases made via our links at no additional costs to you.

Things We Love

  • Five levels of baking. You can enjoy the difference in texture at all levels; such as fluffy, light, normal, dark, and crisp.
  • Four cooking settings. You can choose among toast, frozen toast, topping toast, and French toast. The topping toast has had much positive feedback because customers can cook their bread with some cheese or egg on top.
  • Easy to clean. It comes with a cleaning spatula to make it easier.
  • Vintage style. Mimicking a waffle maker, the toaster has a beautiful retro look from the ‘80s.
  • Sealed thermal-insulated structure. The metal box has been equipped with two plates that seal the slice of bread and can go up to temperatures as high as 500F, resulting in toasting bread without releasing any moisture.

What’s Not to Like

  • Single slice toaster. Some customers have stated that the one thing the toaster lacks off is to be larger enough for toasting two slices of bread at the same time.
  • Japanese manual. The product is made in Japan; however, people with they could have an English manual as well. There is no English manual for this toaster and your only option is to get the PDF of the Japanese manual and then translate it. Users have used Google Translate to do so.
  • Converter needed. If you are outside of Japan you will need to purchase a voltage converter from 240v to 100v; also, make sure it has at least 1000 watts.

Final Remarks

There is no doubt this toaster delivers a great toast however some people may need a product that fits at least 2 slices at a time. If this is not your case, we can recommend this product.

Final Remarks

The KitchenAid Pro Line Series four-slice automatic toaster is equipped with a host of smart features for effortless toasting and it is a good option if you have space enough on your countertop; however, some users have been disappointed on KitchenAid’s customer service regarding this appliance, stating they did not take responsibility with the issues presented.
