Top-notch alternatives to a $6000 toaster

Looking for a $6000 toaster? They’re all the rage at the moment, ever since Duncan Storrar’s appearance on the ABC’s Q&A and federal cabinet minister Kerry O’Dwyer’s anecdote about business investments for café owners.

Following a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign, Mr Storrar just might be in the market for a nice toaster… and if he is, Appliances Online is here to help.

That said, the toasters we have on our site are primarily intended for domestic use, rather than the industrial-sized models used in professional kitchens, such as this 1000-slice-an-hour beast.


(Any café owners and/or corporate franchises looking to invest in these kinds of industrial-scale machines would be advised to contact the team at Appliances Online Commercial.)

But for everyday toasters, here’s what we have at the top of our range – the KitchenAid Artisan toaster, with a Contour Silver finish.

This is a four slice model, with each half of the toaster able to operate independently. Each side has its own dial for setting your toast’s level of Shade, ranging from “aside glance with raised eyebrow” right up to “Beyonce’s opinion of Becky With The Good Hair”.

At 3.8cm, each toast slot is a bit wider than average, for easier toasting of crumpets and thick slices. There are settings for defrosting frozen bread, reheating toast you cooked earlier but forgot about, and for keeping your toast warm until it’s ready to eat.

There’s also a digital countdown until your toast will pop – for a quick breakfast game, try to get it to stop on “007”.

And for keeping the kitchen tidy, there’s a full-width crumb tray that’s easy to slide out for cleaning, and the cord can be neatly stored under the base when not in use.
