The high lift lever and removable crumb tray make it easy to remove your items from the toaster and make it easy to keep clean. Seven heat settings give you a range of toast shades from which to choose, and the toaster also offers bagel, keep warm and reheat settings.

Just like their audio systems and other electronic devices, Kenwood takes it a little further with their Persona Collection Toaster. The Kenwood TTM610 Adjustable Toasting Slot Toaster with Sandwich Basket is the coolest toaster of the bunch.
Not only can you toast your bread and bagels, this gem comes with a sandwich basket, so you can toast your favorite grilled sandwich in it. The toasting slot can be adjusted to be longer and wider, giving you a lot of versatility when toasting.

The most expensive model in this line-up, the Breville BTA830XL Die-Cast Long Slot 4-Slice Toaster has a cool-touch brushed die cast metal body.
This gives it an elegant appearance that will make it a great addition to any kitchen. The four-slice capacity handles breads of any shape, as well as bagels and toaster pastries.
The LED toasting progress indicator lets you know how the toasting is progressing. Its lift and look feature lets you peek to see how your toasted food is coming along.
The ‘a bit more’ setting lets you add a little extra time if your food is not quite ready. Bagel and frozen settings help you toast bagels and thaw perfectly.
People that have purchased the Breville toaster praise its quality and one reviewer stated that it is the best toaster they have ever used. Other reviewers said that it toasts evenly and quickly.
Although some reviewers found the motorized lift to be quaint and say that it works well, other reviewers though, found that it could be a pain, especially when it is stuck. Overall, purchasers of the Breville long slot toaster liked its performance.
For the price, it is hard to beat the KitchenAid long slot toaster. However, the ability of the Kenwood to grill a sandwich gives it a decided edge over the other two models. At least it does to this reviewer.
If you just want toasted bread or bagels, the other two models will fit perfectly into your lifestyle. All of the aforementioned toasters have received four and a half star ratings on Amazon and they are top sellers in the long slot toaster selections.
