Classic Two (2) Slice Toaster

2 Slice ToasterSeveral years ago, we downsized to a two slice toaster since our children had left for college.  My husband and I simply did not require 4 slices of bread every time we wanted toast, a bagel or a sandwich.  Since it is pretty quick to make two slices of toast, it really is more convenient for us to have the smaller size.  Plus, we save room on the counter.  I have been extremely pleased with the T-Fal Avante Toaster we selected.

Since our specific toaster is no longer easily available, I will list the things I like about our toaster to use as a checklist for selecting a comparable toaster.  I will also share the recommended 2 slice toasters that should work just as well in the kitchen.  However, if you can find the T-Fal Avante, I would recommend it first.


Fabulous Features of Our Two Slice Toaster

I always hate it when I can’t replace an appliance that works really well with exactly the same brand and style.  Because it is often the features that make the difference, I like to have a handy checklist when replacing a small appliance.  It is not time for me to replace my own toaster, but I wanted to share what makes it the preferred toaster with those of you who may be shopping now.

The only thing that I am not completely thrilled about is cleaning.  It does have a crumb door on the bottom, but a lot of the crumbs don’t fall under the panel that holds the bread.  I end up having to carry the it to the sink and turning it upside down to dump the crumbs.  Since I have never found a toaster that was truly easy to clean, I don’t consider that a serious flaw in the design.  Especially since the toaster is fairly lightweight.


Similar Toasters

As I said in the introduction, my specific unit is not easy to find.  Therefore, I have sought and found several comparable 2 slice toasters to recommend.
