Oster TSSTTRWF4S 4-Slice Toaster Review
To outfit your kitchen with a real workhorse of a toaster you will need the Oster TSSTTRWF4S 4-Slice Toaster, which boasts extra wide slots and some great heat settings. The four settings on the toaster are defrost (frozen), reheat, bagel and cancel. This means you can take some frozen English muffins out and not have to wait for them to thaw, simply pop them in the toaster and let it do the job for you! You will need to toast the muffins after they have been defrosted, but it does save you a ton of waiting time. The regular toasting options range from 1 – 7 in increasing intensity, which gives you the freedom to experiment with your favourite level of toastiness. The bread is seated perfectly in the middle of the toasting tray with dual auto-adjusting bread guides, just to keep the heat even on each side while it toasts. When it’s time to take your toast out, you can use one or both of the two lifts on the trays to make your job even easier.
Sometimes bread can get stuck in the tray if it is unevenly cut, and we wouldn’t want to stop you from toasting your favourite artisan bread that you picked up at the local bakery. The cord is retractable so that you can store this toaster in the cupboard and keep it out of sight, and out of mind. This is a nice feature because larger models can be unwieldy to keep on a kitchen counter, and you’d far prefer to keep something else there like your coffee machine. The crumb tray underneath not only provides a quick and easy way to clean out the debris inside the toaster, this particular one is dishwasher friendly. The clean brushed stainless steel exterior of this toaster will look great in just about any kitchen!
Why we liked it: One particularly great feature of this toaster is that it is cased in stainless steel, which doesn’t rust or tarnish over time. With this toaster you are able to toast bagels, defrost frozen English muffins and reheat toast for a couple of minutes after it has finished toasting. Lastly, the 7 levels of toasting power are a nice touch to allow you the freedom to hit that perfect golden brown every time.
