REVIEW

KitchenAid Pro Line 4-Slice Toaster

It might look the part of a $500 machine, but the KitchenAid Pro Line didn't toast any better than the $30 Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome Toaster.

Even if you don't expect much from your toaster, you can do better than this.

KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual Toaster w/Digital Display
REVIEW

KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual Toaster w/Digital Display ( Empire Red)

Buying the KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual only makes sense if you have a weakness for retro appliance looks, otherwise you'd be better served by cheaper machines which make toast better and faster.

Frigidaire Professional 4-Slice Wide Slots Toaster
REVIEW

Frigidaire Professional 4-Slice Wide Slots Toaster

The Frigidaire Professional toasts as evenly as any model we tested. It takes the guesswork out of getting your bread to the level of brownness you desire.

Nomiku
REVIEW

Nomiku

The Nomiku is a great kitchen gadget, but it's the wrong time to buy one. Shop around for a cheaper competitor -- or hold out for Nomiku 2.0.

REVIEW

Vitamix S30

Only consider the Vitamix S30 if personal to-go blending and quality are your objectives and saving money isn't.

REVIEW

Hamilton Beach MultiBlend Blender

For basic nuts-and-bolts blending on a budget, the Hamilton Beach MultiBlend delivers, though other models offer greater flexibility and food-processing horsepower.

Oster Beehive Blender
REVIEW

Oster Beehive Blender

The Oster Beehive is a subpar blender, both lagging behind other budget models and falling short of its classic namesake.

REVIEW

Ninja Nutri Ninja BL450

This is a powerful and effective single-serve blender that won't cost a fortune, just don't expect it to go too far beyond the line of duty.
