Toasters are more than a kitchen appliance, as they often make a statement about your personality and kitchen decor. KitchenAid toasters range from the mid-century modern replicas to modern four-toast behemoths. The bodies of their toasters are made of either all stainless steel or plastic/stainless steel combo. Many of their models have extra wide slots to accommodate English muffins and bagels. Some models have a countdown timer so you'll never be startled by the toaster again, while others offer pre-settings like defrost and reheat. And, if looks matter, there are models that come in up to seven different colors.
