In addition to the 7 shade settings, sturdy build, and 4 long, wide slots, this KitchenAid toaster stands out for its sleek, space-saving design and vivid red finish. Convenient "beep" indicates when toast is done.
A few owners wish it toasted a bit darker, but pushing it down a second time is an easy fix. Mixed reviews on how evenly it toasts.
Numerous handy features for an inexpensive price – illuminated functions, beep alert, and sturdy craftsmanship. Owners love the simplistic design and rave about how evenly it toasts wide items like bagels.
Only has 2 slots, but this isn't a deal breaker for everyone. Rare reports of inconsistent toasting.
A state-of-the-art toaster, as it has patented features including a well-built steel insulated body and durable preheat elements. 4 slots. Stylish – owners brag about the unique shade of red.
Extremely expensive for a toaster, and considering the price, the crumb tray is surprisingly flimsy. Doesn't fit or toast evenly all types of bread.
Stands out for its retro-like design and bright, shiny red finish that looks great on a kitchen countertop. Build feels solid and well-made, and controls are easy to use.
Has the tendency to burn or toast unevenly. Only has 2 slots, which may not be a concern, except it's pricey for its class. Cord is on the short side.
An inexpensive red toaster that's easy to use, cool to the touch, and has 9 shade settings on the manual dial. Compact design is ideal for small spaces.
Not as durable as other toasters on our list, as the housing is made of plastic. Basic; only 2 slots with no fancy features.

If you are looking for a hot way to liven up your basic breakfast fare, try a red toaster. Many companies make these distinctively-colored toasters. They come in variations as wide as other toasters, including the number of pieces of bread that can be toasted at one time, width, and length of slots, which may or may not accommodate artisan breads, and additional toaster functions like defrost, reheat, or a bagel setting. A red toaster is often accented in another color or material like stainless steel. These toasters have a slick, distinctive look. As you are looking, consider those toasters that come in red are often available in a variety of other colors by the same maker, which can be chosen to go with your decor.
