How to Toast Bread to Perfection


Toasters are common kitchen appliances and many people appreciate being able to enjoy a healthy meal in the morning, instead of loading their daily diet with junk food. Toasting a slice of bread to perfection is no rocket science, but you need to know your toaster a little bit. With 4 slice toasters now equipped with many different settings and functionalities, it is not unheard of to feel a bit lost. Here is a step by step guide on how to toast bread, so you can obtain the results you want each and every time.


If you have a toaster that can center the bread instead the slot, you do not have to worry whether your bread slices are too thick or too thin. However, it is a matter of taste and thicker slices take a bit longer to make, so you may want to keep that in mind.



The latest 4 slice toaster models come now with all kinds of settings, so you can have a bit of fun with these. For instance, you can choose – on some toaster – how brown you want your toast to be. Even more, larger models with more slots even allow you to independently adjust the settings for each slice, so each member of your family can get the perfect toast, according to their preferences.



The lift is the mechanism that pushes the slices of bread upwards so you can grab them once they are done. It is recommended to get a model with a high rise lift, so you can toast other items besides bread inside the toaster.



Your toast may not be perfect right from the get go, but you can always lower the slice back and redo the process if you are unsatisfied. With time, you will know exactly how much time you need for the perfect toast to have in the morning.
