Two-slice toasters are fine if you have a smaller family, don't need to make a lot of toast at once, or can spread toast-making out in the morning because everyone is on a different schedule. They take up less counter space than four-slice toasters and, because they're lighter, they're also easier to store in a cabinet between uses. These toasters come as basic or as fully featured as you need, but they're generally cheaper than four-slice models. Four-Slice Toasters
Four-slice toasters are ideal for large families or people who like everyone's toast to be ready at the same time without much fuss. The main consideration here is size -- you need to be sure you have the counter space for a larger unit. These toasters can be heavier, too, so even if you do have room to store them, you may not want to bother heaving them in and out between uses. Four-slice toasters also come with a range of features, whether you want something basic or loaded with bells and whistles.Breakfast Sandwich Makers
For some, a breakfast sandwich is the ultimate morning meal: It's easy to eat on the run, and it's endlessly customizable. Breakfast sandwich makers let users skip the time and expense of hitting a drive-through. Most include non-stick plates that can cook eggs; warm meat or other fillings; and warm and press bread. Others fuse these features with a traditional toaster, making a portable balanced breakfast possible in several minutes. The main downside here is storage space – it's yet another small appliance that needs a home when not in use.
