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. So, I decided to test it out.
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 this 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.
