Brentwood Extra Wide Slot Toaster: Making Life Easy On A Budget

Today we take a close look at the Brentwood Extra Wide Slot Toaster. It’s a pretty good toaster for the money.

I recently reviewed a wide slot toaster from Black and Decker and I really liked it. You see, in my house, we eat a lot of fresh bread but none of us is all that good at cutting thin slices of fresh bread. So, an ordinary toaster just won’t make the grade for us.

The Black and Decker was perfect for me. I can get away with a really wide slice and toast it no problem. Then one of my readers, Karen from Arizona, let me know that there was a budget equivalent from Brentwood. The Brentwood Extra Wide Slot Toaster.

So, I decided to test it out. Test it out with these 50 Best Sandwich Recipes with the Brentwood.

Toast Is A Staple In Our Home

We love toast in our home. That’s because it’s easy to make when you’re in a rush and it’s always filling. In fact, our love of toast is sometimes taken to excess and we have to cut out the carbs for a while but most of the time – we keep it under control.

Though, check this Gordon Ramsay recipe for toast out and tell me that you aren’t hungry:

So, the Brentwood had some serious use in the week that we tested it out.

How Did It Do?

Well, I’d read that the Brentwood Toaster doesn’t toast evenly and that it can be quick to burn bread on even low heat settings but that wasn’t what we experienced. We found that it worked just fine though it was, perhaps, a few seconds slower to toast than the Black and Decker.

It feels a little more plasticky than expensive models which may mean it’s not built to last forever but at the price?

That’s to be expected. This costs less than $20 and at that price, it does an admirable job of toasting bread. That’s all you can ask for.

I recommend the Brentwood Extra Wide Slot Toaster on that basis.

  1. My present toaster is on its way out, won’t pop up. This toaster would be a much needed addition.

    • Hi Beth,

      You need to click the Enter Now link. If this isn’t working. You need to make sure you are using the latest version of your Internet browser and if that isn’t working – please make sure to clear your cookies and cache. Good luck. 🙂

  2. Our four-toaster has been the most finicky kitchen product that we have to depend on everyday. Frankly, it’s embarrassing when the neighbors think you’re burning food when you’re a chef. It would be a godsend to have a good toaster.

  3. My entries aren’t going through. I am about ready to give up. I have sent comment at least 5 times on all your related sites. I have gotten no response to my requests for help.

  4. Would love to get this for my grand daughter. She doesn’t have much and this would be great for her with 3 kids.
