The British company’s signature kitchen appliance has a number of extras that are sure to get your mouth watering in no time. For starters, it has adjustable wire guards that can accommodate any bread thickness, especially useful when your carb depletion diet has gotten the best of you. Better yet, expandable sandwich cages allow you to heat up buttered bread, meats, cheeses and veggies. A built-in ejector button lets you keep food warm between feedings. Available in a range of retro-inspired colors including mint green, canary yellow, azure blue and a more modern premium polished finish. The 2+2 models start at $331 and the less family-friendly 3-toast version (appropriately called the 2+1) is available for a slightly more affordable $311. A two-slicer runs about $239. Pretty pricey for a bread warmer, but can you really put a price on perfect toast?!; Dualit.com.
