Decent toaster needed - recommendations please

(16 Posts)

Our toaster is on its last legs and its time to replace. We do alot of non toast items, crumpets, teacakes etc and these often get stuck. Also the bits that fall off especially teacake raisins tend to get stuck and start to smoke badly. Clearly a fire hazard as once it blew the fuse completely.

So is there a toaster than can deal with these things or will I have to resort to using grill (which takes an age to warm up)?

Any recommendations please?

I'd just like to add that my greatest annoyance with most toasters is that few or non can take a slice of Warburtons sideways,,very annoying.

Try Asda. They had 2 kinds of toasters - one of them (the slightly more expensive one) fits the large slices of bread beautifully

Might be worth looking at a flatbed toaster for non-bread things.

I like my Sage toaster. I tried a few others but they're so flimsy

I’ve got a dualit classic that’s about 6 years old and still great. You can get a rack to slot into the top to toast oddly shaped items. We mainly do small pieces of fruit bread or occasionally croissants. Works very well

RaspberryCheese, I bought a toaster last year which was made specifically to take a warburtons slice, its a Breville ,, it was alright for a while now just like most it started only browning one side ,, and it wasnt a cheap buy , but i got it with a £25 discount from freemans catalogue

I love my Magimix toaster, was expensive but seems well made.

Sorry forgot to say I bought it in 2012.

Duality. We've had ours for about 15 years with no signs of wear or tear, just turns out great toast! Expensive but so worth the outlay.

Dualit of course

I had two Dualit toasters that broke on me, so wouldn't buy one again!

Now have a morphy richards one that was a lot cheaper but has lasted longer.

Once you have had one you'll never go back ( and literally because they last forever!)

I have a 4 slice Morphy Richards one. The slots are nice and big and wide, nothing has ever got stuck in it that I can remember, very happy with it and would recommend.

We bought one second hand on eBay. Gave it a clean and looks like new. I think to can reach every bit on it so I'm hoping it will out last me

I’ve been discussing toasters this evening. Ours is coming up 8 years old and is playing up.
The flipping 15 year old microwave combi grill/oven thing is being an arse too. I’m destined to be poor this year with small kitchen electricals hmm
