Versatile toaster. But: Toast slices can burn easily and jump out of the machine during toasting.

General information

The AmazonBasics Toaster has a firm stand thanks to the rubber feet. They prevent the slipping of the 1369 g stainless steel toaster. At the same time, you can toast up to two toast slices at once.

Tanning stages

The toaster has six different tanning levels, as well as a warm-up and thawing function, which you can select according to your wishes.

Further functions

Irrespective of the degree of browning, cooled toast slices are baked crispy again using the warm-up function.

A further function is a possibility of defrosting frozen products using the defrost button and automatically allowing them to be toasted for longer.

In addition, the toaster has an integrated, retractable bun attachment for preparing or heating rolls. To extend the attachment, press a lever. At medium browning level- which is recommended by the manufacturer - the roll is evenly warm and crispy.

When the lifting attachment is pressed, the toast moves minimally.

With the help of a separate release button, you are able to stop the toasting process individually and prematurely.

The winding of the cable is made easier by a cable compartment underneath the toaster.

At the highest level, it takes about 4 minutes to finish. Afterwards, the toast slice is black and it smells burnt.

When the medium level is used, it takes 2 minutes and 33 seconds for the toast to be ready to eat. In this case, the toast slice is very crispy and slightly burnt in a few places.

At the lowest level, the toast becomes slightly crispy from the outside and soft from the inside. The process takes 1 minute and 25 seconds.

It is noticeable that the toast slices fly out of the toaster at irregular intervals, regardless of the degree of tanning regulation.

Power consumption

The average power consumption is 750 W.


To make the cleaning process easier, the toaster has a crumb tray which you can take out separately.
