7 Best 4-Slice Toasters You Should Have In Your Kitchen

Take a slice of bread, toast it until it’s the perfect shade, add your favorite spread, then sit back, and enjoy. Simple, yet satisfying, and definitely delicious!

A four-slice toaster makes the morning routine quicker and less stressful, and it offers more flexibility than a two-slice version. No more fighting over who gets the first batch, as you can toast two portions at once. Or you can have four slices to yourself — we’re not judging.

Our research has revealed these as the best 4-slice toasters:

1. Best Overall: Lofter Four-Slice Toaster

This toaster is so easy to use — simply pop in the bread, press down the lever, and set your toast shade with the handy dial on the side. The LED screen will display a timer, and once it’s up, the toaster will pop up to reveal your perfectly cooked toast.

We particularly love the matte sheen finish — it’ll add a touch of elegance to any kitchen worktop. It’s slim and won’t stick out too far nor take up too much space.

The toaster has easy one-touch buttons that can be used to defrost, toast bagels, and reheat, too. You’ll be able to toast specialty breads and waffles easily, too, thanks to the extra-wide slots.

Cleaning the toaster is easy as it comes with a removable crumb tray, and the cord can be easily stored away underneath.

Pros

  • Anti-overheat protection feature.
  • Lifetime 24-hour after-sale service.
  • Upgraded high-lift function.

Cons

  • Shiny metal shows finger marks easily.

2. Best Toaster Timer: Cuisinart Leverless Toaster

This is a great toaster for electrical gadget lovers. It’s leverless and is controlled fully at the touch of different buttons, adding a sense of fun to the simplicity of toasting bread and making it more convenient to use.

It offers seven different browning settings, allowing you to choose how brown you want your toast. It also features a countdown timer, so you can see exactly how long it will take until your toast is ready. When the toast is cooked, the toaster will beep to alert you that it is ready. It’ll automatically lift the toast high away from the hot elements so that you can grab it easily and safely.

The toaster features unique dual controls, so each side browns differently — perfect for a large household with different preferences. The dual controls are perfect for when you and your partner are both wanting toast at the same time, yet don’t agree on the shade of brownness that the perfect piece of toast should be.

Pros

  • Compact design.
  • Cord wrap to minimize worktop space.

Cons

  • Most expensive on the list.
  • Short life span.
  • Repetitive reports of technical issues.

3. Best for Simplicity: Black+Decker Four-Slice Toaster

This toaster is simple to use and doesn’t have any complicated and difficult features, making that morning slice of toast even more of a tasty delight.

Although a four-slice toaster, it can be operated separately with its dual-control feature. This way, if family members have different browning requirements, toaster-related arguments will be long gone.

A dial on each side of the toaster allows you to adjust the setting with seven different toast shades to choose from for each side.

Of note is that the slots are extra-wide and can easily fit bagels and large slices of bread inside. No need to stick to that regular sliced bread any longer!

Also, simple one-touch buttons give you the option for specifically toasting bagels, toasting frozen items, and canceling the current toast cycle. Pretty much standard features, but you won’t always find the bagel option on competitor models.

It’s other simple features, such as the levers providing an extra lift to avoid burnt fingers, that make this a well-rounded and popular four-slice toaster. It also looks gorgeous, so will add a touch of style to any kitchen.

Pros

  • Good value for money.
  • Durable construction.
  • Stylish ombré finish.

Cons

  • Difficult to clean.

4. Best Value for Money: Famistar Four-Slice Toaster

If you’re looking for a toaster with a high performance level but a low price tag, then this is the one. However, the price doesn’t reflect the quality of this toaster, which makes it the best value for money.

The two sides work separately, so you can toast different breads on alternative settings at the same time.

It has six shade settings to choose from, as well as having bagel, defrost, and cancel buttons that can each be operated quickly.

A toast boost allows you to lift toast high, and even reach smaller slices without having to rattle the toaster or put your fingers inside to pull it out.

The toaster has an automatic safety shut-off feature, which turns the toaster off at the end of the cycle even if a piece of toast gets stuck inside. The slots can fit wide bread and bagels inside easily.

Pros

  • Great value for money.
  • Removable crumb tray.

Cons

  • Not very powerful.

5. Best for Versatility: Realex Four-Slice Toaster

Not only does this toaster have wide slots to allow you to fit in chunky pieces of bread, but it also comes with a grill fitting that lets you heat food on top of the toaster. Items that would make a mess if placed inside the slots, such as pizza or a sticky bun, can be easily placed on top, instead.

The toaster has seven settings ranging between 85 and 210 seconds, which is about average for most of the toasters here.

The Two sides on the toaster can be operated separately, so you can toast more than one item on different settings at the same time.

Pros

  • Extra-wide slots.
  • Excellent temperature control.

Cons

  • Only available in one color.

6. Best Retro Design: Buydeem Four-Slice Retro Toaster

The retro style is definitely making a big comeback, and we often see people adapting retro themes into their homes, particularly in the kitchen. This toaster has a classic retro style, including its unique color, curved edges, and has knobs instead of buttons for easy control.

It features dual independent controls, which allow you to toast two pieces of bread on two different settings, simultaneously.

The classic turn dials have seven settings to choose from, depending on how golden brown you like your toast. Four buttons let you choose a defrost, reheat, bagel or cancel setting, with each lighting up — contributing to the retro design.

A solid high-lifting lever allows you to grab the toast from the slots safely, without burning any fingers.

It comes with a super-long 40-inch cord, which is much longer than the other toasters, so you can plug it in almost anywhere. A cord wrap and storage tray underneath the toaster let you wrap it all up when not in use, so it won’t look untidy.

Pros

  • Matching color appliances are also available.
  • Extra-long power cord.
  • Easy to clean.

Cons

  • Only available in one color.
  • Highest toast setting doesn’t brown food as much as other models.

7. Best for Warm Toast: Ikich Four-Slice Long Slot Toaster

This four-slice, long-slot toaster allows for thicker and longer pieces of bread, including sourdough.

The toaster has six toasting settings, allowing you to change the setting according to your shade preference. It also has cancel, defrost and reheat buttons.

It features a warming rack so you can sit bread on top of the toaster to keep it warm or reheat it after you’ve been rushing around doing chores or getting the kids ready — we know that feeling! This is also a great way to melt cheese without causing a mess.

It has a high-lift technology, so you can push toast up away from the hot elements and keep your fingers safe.

Pros

  • Stylish design.
  • Good value for money.
  • Toasts evenly.

Cons

  • Smaller slices must be toasted together on the same shade setting.

Conclusion

We found it tough to call out the top product this time. Each toaster brings something different to the table and could be the best for several reasons.

Saying that, my favorite is the Lofter four-slice toaster. It’s stylish and will complement a kitchen counter well. It’s also slim so it won’t take up too much valuable space.

With seven browning shades to choose from, you can ensure that your toast is cooked to your liking every time. The handy LED screen counts down the seconds until your perfectly hot and crispy toast is ready to eat, too.
