    I can't be the only one who feels like a toaster is one of the most important items in my kitchen. So when my favorite appliance finally broke, I decided to go a different route than my usual trusted gadget.


    I jumped on the TikTok bandwagon and splurged on the viral Revolution Cooking 2-Slice High Speed Smart-Toaster ($299.95 on Amazon). At first I thought it was just a toaster, but it's truly much, much more than that — especially with the addition of its two attachments.

    Spoiler alert: TikTok was right about this one. 

    Although pricey, the toaster provides you with the opportunity to customize your experience — something that I've personally never seen before. You get to choose whether you put a bagel, Pop-Tarts, toast, or an English muffin inside and watch the machine adjust its size to fit the item perfectly.

    What's not to *love* about a functional appliance? It's meant to perfectly heat each individual item, thanks to the fact that it adjusts to their shape. When I used to use my old toaster, I would have to play around with the temperature *and* keep and eye on it the entire time. This let's me just walk away and will pop out the food when it's done the way I selected on the screen. 

    It not only creates the most incredible toast, but also reheats and warms frozen foods, too! In the past my toaster could make delicious food, but it was always tricky to heat up frozen foods without it taking forever or burning. The fact that it has the three options has seriously been amazing — not to mention, it has saved me from burning tons of food.

    You can choose just how toasted you want any item out of seven different settings. I *love* toast semi–well done, but my other family members love it at different settings (some barely toasted, others almost burnt!). I can really personalize just how toasted I want it, which is honestly why I fell in love with this appliance.

    It ranges in settings from 1 to 7, starting from barely toasted to burnt. You can see on the screen how it'll look when it's done, so it's easy to visualize the end result. 

    While it's toasting, the screen takes you through the cooking process. It'll show you when it's heating, browning, and crisping and display a helpful countdown when it's nearing the end.

    It's also ~super~ quick. I don't think I've ever had a toaster that cooks so perfectly in so little time. Before you know it, it's finished, which is great for someone like me who is always running late. 

    It also plays the cutest jingle when it's done toasting, so if you walk away you won't miss it. Say goodbye to cold or burnt toast!

    If that wasn't enough, you can also purchase the toaster's two attachments, a warming rack ($29.99 from Best Buy) and a panini press ($79.99 from Amazon), to take it up a notch.

    TBH, I *love* both of the attachments and find them super useful in giving the toaster even more features. 

    I'm obsessed with the panini press. It makes the most delicious grilled cheeses, hot sandwiches, and, of course, paninis — I've tried ~tons~ of combinations and find them all melted and toasted to perfection.

    To use the panini press, place your two pieces of bread (or your desired outside) on either side and your favorite filling on one of the two sides. Then, use the handle to close it and insert it into the machine. Select how toasted you want it on the bread setting and press start. Before you know it, you'll have a delicious panini. 

    The pastry rack is pretty simple to use, too. Just place it on top of the toaster, select any of the settings, and press start. (I used the Pop-Tart setting but truthfully it doesn't matter which you select — you'll get the same results). Super easy!

    But, I'm not the only one that loves this toaster. Over 900 5-star reviewers on Amazon rave about it, too.,

    "I have to say, this toaster was well worth the investment. This one beat my old toaster by mile in terms of how fast it toasts, and it adjusts easily and well to waffles and bagels. The toaster has a fantastic digital display, too. I love the 10-second countdown feature so I can get my butter in place and slather it one while the toast is hot. The design is sleek and elegant, and my favorite surprise is the analog clock display. This makes my old toaster obsolete, and it's now collecting dust in the bottom cupboard." —Rob

    "I love this toaster. It works faster than my previous toaster, which is probably my favorite part. The touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use. You just make a couple selections and it will toast bread, waffles, English muffins, etc., exactly how you want them toasted. Its beautiful minimalist design looks great in my modern kitchen, but is classic enough to look good in more traditional kitchens. Very high quality." —Kyle
