Wide slot toasters have openings that are larger than traditional toasters. Usually they are 1.5" wide. These kinds of toasters are a good choice if you prefer artisan breads, make your own bread at home, or enjoy wider bread items toasted – like bagels. When looking for the best wide slot toaster for your home, consider how much counter-space you want to give up, or how much cabinet space you have for storage. Wide slot toasters tend have a much larger footprint than traditional toasters of the past, but you can still find some compact-size models as well. Both 2- and 4-slice toasters come in a wide slot style. Wide slot toasters are not likely to have longer than normal slots, just wider. If you like long breads, you will need to shop for a long-slot toaster, which will often also come in a wide width.
