Kitchenaid 4 Slice Toaster Reviews

kitchen-aid-4-slice-toaster-reviewsKitchenaid actually markets two different types of 4 slice toasters. The difference between them, other than the price, is that one has 4 slots for 4 slices of bread and the other has 2 slots for 4 slices of bread.

We are going to take a look at both to see which one makes the grade.

2 Slots/4 Slices – Kitchenaid 4 Slice Toaster KTT570

This toaster is around $20 cheaper than the 4 slot version which you can read about below. So what makes it cheaper? Basically, it comes down to features.

Apart from the features and options, the main difference between this toaster and the 4 slot/4 slice is that the two slots means that you can put in any length of toast or bagel.

What We Like

  • This Kitchenaid toaster is cool to the touch. This is important especially when there are kids around who just want to touch everything.
  • The slots are wide enough to fit bagels.
  • There are an amazing 9 heat settings including one specifically for bagels and also one for frozen breads.
  • It comes with a removable crumb tray which makes it easy to clean.
  • You can store the cord under the base.
  • It also has a reheat button which I love.
  • It comes in three different colors – white, empire red and onyx black

What We Don’t Like

  • There wasn’t much that we could find wrong with this toaster in terms of features and options however we found that a number of reviews on the net mentioned that this toaster really didn’t cook toast evenly.

Where Can I Get The Best Price?

We found the prices to be fairly static across the net so we can’t really give a best price. Our preference is as they are known for their good service AND they also provide FREE SHIPPING for this item.

4 slots/4 slices – Kitchenaid 4 Slot/4 Slice Metal Classic Toaster

KitchenAid 4-slice Metal Classic Toaster, RedI really like the look of this toaster. To me it looks like something that would be used in a commercial setting so it just speaks of quality and durability.

The features and options on this toaster just set it apart from the rest and the dual controls are a brilliant addition to this already great toaster.

What We Like

  • This toaster has specific settings for toasting bagels which means it toasts the cut side more than the uncut side.
  • This toaster has dual settings so you can set the controls independently. For instance. you can toast two bagels on one side with specific settings just for those bagels and on the other two pieces of toast with totally different settings…and you can do it all at the same time.
  • The exterior of the toaster is kept cool to the touch which is great if you have kiddies around.
  • The extra wide slots allow for toasting of bagels.
  • It has a warming function which warms the toast rather than toasting it even further.

What We Don’t Like

  • Nothing really. This is one quality toaster that does the job exceptionally well. The bells and whistles are what really sets this apart. We were hard pressed to find a negative review for this one on the net.

Our Recommendation

Well it’s obvious that we prefer the 4 slots/4 slices toaster and for the extra $20 we would have to go with this one.

Where Can I Get The Best Price?

We found that this toaster was priced fairly evenly across most merchants. Our preference is always for their quality service PLUS they offer free shipping for this item.
