Oster TSSTTRWF4S 4-Slice Toaster

| November 22, 2015

​Finding the right toaster can be tough – particularly if you’re not quite sure what you should be looking for. With toasters that come in all different shapes and sizes and a wide array of different price points, a solid yet wonderful toaster like the Oster toaster could provide the best of all worlds. The Oster 4 slice toaster has the good looks of a retro toaster with its brushed metal finish, while at the same time it comes with many of the better features of more modern toasters too.

​Why Choose the Oster 4 Slice Toaster?

​While it is billed as being a 4 slice Oster toaster, because each pair of toasting slots comes with its own dedicated controls it is effectively like having 2 different 2 slice toasters. The flexibility that this one feature provides is really a nice touch, and if you want you could heat up muffins in one pair of slots while toasting bread in the other.

​The slots themselves are ‘extra-wide’ which means that the Oster toaster is able to deal with anything you might need to toast including bread, bagels, muffins, or even tea cakes. It has a high-lift lever there should be no issue with removing smaller pieces of bread, and the auto-adjusting bread guides of the Oster toaster will help to ensure an even toast regardless of the size or thickness of the bread.

​Even the controls are intuitive enough and come with the typical ‘Bagel’, ‘Reheat’, ‘Defrost’ and ‘Cancel’ options along with a dial that can be used to set the shade of brown you want your toast to be. In the line of Oster toasters there is a 2 slice version as well, but the price difference is so small that it makes sense to stick with the Oster 4 slice toaster and only use 2 slots if need be.

PROS

  • Timeless classic retro toaster looks with a brushed steel finish and black control panel
  • Flexible settings to select the type of function and shade of brown quickly and conveniently
  • Dedicated control panel for each pair of toasting slots in the Oster toasters
  • Consistent and even toasting regardless of size or thickness with the auto-adjusting bread guides in the Oster toaster

CONS

  • Oster toasters do not come with a timer since it is unnecessary with the controls available, but is a preference for some
  • Can take a bit of experimentation and getting used to the controls on the Oster toaster

Summary

As a sleek and stylish 4 slice toaster, the Oster toaster really is an amazing option. It has enough features and options to take care of your toast perfectly, and is at a price point so you won’t have to empty your wallet in the process. It is a wonderful toaster to get for yourself, or even as a wedding or housewarming gift for a friend or family member.
