Bagels, pastries and bread are all better when they're warmed up and a little crispy, but the right equipment can make a big difference when it comes to quality. When you're ready to shop for a new toaster, it's important to think about how you plan on using it. Here are four things to consider before making your final selection.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Toaster

One of the most important things about a toaster is how many slices it can hold, especially if you plan on preparing large batches. A two-slice toaster is standard and usually fine for a small household or a family who doesn't plan on using it a lot, but most people will appreciate the extra space a four-slice toaster affords. If you plan on heating bagels or toaster pastries to go with fresh brewed coffee in the mornings, you may want to look for a model that has wider slots.

You'll also want to consider the actual physical footprint of your toaster. Do you have enough counter space to be able to leave a larger model out all of the time, or will you be wanting to store it in a cabinet or on a shelf when not in use? If you're planning on leaving it out, look for a style that matches your decor. KitchenAid colored models offer timeless style, and Russel Hobbs has sleek stainless steel and chrome designs that fit in a modern room.

While higher quality models that are going to last the long haul usually do come with a higher price tag, there are plenty of economy toasters that get the job done. London Drugs has basic options, deluxe models, and everything in between.

Additional Features
If you want to get a bit more out of your toaster, look for additional features like defrost and reheat settings for when you just need a little warmth or a crumb tray that makes cleanup easy. For ultimate additional functionality, you can also consider toaster ovens.

Whether you need a four-slice toaster that can handle the needs of a big family or are looking for something that won't take up too much space on your counter, visit London Drugs in-store or online to find the option that will work for you.
