Kitchenaid toasters have always been one of the toasters of my choice. Ever since 1919, Kitchenaid has been a major player in the kitchen appliance market. Let’s be real, Kitchenaid doesn’t put out the cheapest toasters but you can be assured that you’ll be investing in the best toasters with an established brand like Kitchenaid.
Kitchenaid has marketed various bold and outstanding designs of toasters. Most of the toaster models come in various shades of grey, white, silver, red and orange. These toasters come in different finishes, shapes and sizes. You’ll sure find at least one model of toaster that appeals to your inner fashionista. Kitchenaid currently has 12 different toaster models on the market and I have reviewed only the best Kitchenaid toasters.
The Kitchen Aid KMT 422OB is a 4 slice toaster that has a manual lift and an LCD display. It has a mix of a retro and a futuristic design that is really appealing. The KMT422 comes in three different colors namely the Countour Silver, Empire Red and the Onyx Black.
What Can This Toaster Do?
Thanks to the wide slots in this Kitchenaid toaster, you’ll be able to not only toast bread but bagels and English muffins too. The KMT 422 has a reheat, defrost and bagel function, which allows you to start toasting your food as soon as you grab them out of the refrigerator. This toaster has an LCD display that portrays a progress bar whenever you are using the toaster so you’ll know when your toast going to be done; very fancy!
I only have two complaints about this toaster. First, the toasting process took way too long. This may be because this toaster was designed to toast thicker ingredients like bagels and muffins. It took almost double the time my old Cuisinart toaster took to toast 2 slices of bread. Second, the beeper to indicate my toast was done was amazingly loud. So if you’re not bothered with these two flaws, the KMT422 may be the toaster for you.
The KitchenAid KMT 2203 is a two slice toaster with a lot to offer. I simply love the “a little longer” feature which toasts whatever I am toasting for a few moments longer. This is an easy way to ideal slice of toast even if you picked a shade that is too light for your liking. This toaster comes in two colors, black and red. The toaster also features a classic design that really impressed me.
What Can This Toaster Do?
This Kitchenaid toaster features 7 different shade settings and an extra wide slot so you’ll be able to toast bagels too. The automatic lift and lower feature ensures you never burn your hand. If your toast isn’t removed in 45 seconds, the toaster automatically lowers the toast again and uses a low heat cycle to keep the toast warm for 3 minutes.
The toaster is a little heavy and very pricey. It does its job well but it’s a little hard storing the toaster after using it. Anyway, thanks to its rustic design I just leave it on the countertop which counters the storage issue easily.
This striking cherry red 4-slice toaster isn’t cheap but it is worth every single cent. It is priced around the $350 point and has a fancy design to go with it. The KItchenaid KTM4203 is an amazing four slice toaster that is packed with features. This Kitchenaid toaster comes in two colors the cherry apple red and the onyx black.
What Can It Do?
The KTM4203 isn’t your average toaster. It has a ton of automatic functions that would indeed make your toasting experience all the more enjoyable. First off, this toaster has a feature that automatically aligns each slice of bread you insert into the toaster.
It also has a keep warm feature that keeps your bread warm even after it has finish toasting (up to 3 minutes later.) The seven shade setting is also a delight. Finally I could toast bread to make sure it’s crispy yet not too dry. This toaster also has a defrost feature and is capable of toasting other stuff like bagels and English muffins.
The automatic lower and lift feature also ensures that you never burn your hand and never ever get any of the food you’re toasting stuck in your toaster. This feature automatically raises your toast as soon as your desired shade is reached.
I really didn’t have any major issues with this model. However, it did have a little of a bulky and bold design which made storage an issue. It was also a tad heavy but thanks to all its features and excellent performance, I would be happy to live with these minor flaws.
