Best for Tidy Storage: Tower Bottega 2-Slice Toaster

With relatively compact dimensions, this toaster is ideally suited for people who are short on kitchen counter space. Adding to the tidy credentials is the fact the cord wraps away for minimalist use of storage space.

Elsewhere, there's a six-level browning dial, the usual defrost, reheat and cancel buttons, a crumb tray that you can take out and empty, and a high-lift function for burn-free bread removal.

Pros:

  • Cord storage
  • Removable crumb tray
  • Small size

Tower Bottega 2-Slice Toaster

Compact choice

Ideal for smaller kitchens, the Tower Bottega will help you enjoy toast in less-than-roomy environments.

Crustworthy choices

When you consider the product concept, a two-slice toaster seems like a reasonably basic proposition. But if you delve into the details, some essential features differentiate the rival options.

If you enjoy a lot of larger baked products like teacakes, crumpets and bagels, you might want to consider a toaster with wider slots like the Tower Bottega. People with super-stylin' kitchens are going to value a toaster's looks, so the classic Dualit design or VonShef's elegant solution are worth a look.

Our overall pick though, the Morphy Richards Dune model is an excellent choice for a good value, consistent performance and non-too-shabby looks.
