Tips for Perfect Toast

Many variables can impact toaster performance.


  • Breads can vary greatly in moisture and sugar content.
    • Different types of bread toast differently due to size, density, moisture and sugar content.
    • A high sugar content bread browns more quickly.
    • Even using the same type of bread every day can result in different shades of toast.
    • This is because the end of the loaf is drier than the middle.
  • If you have a two or four slot toaster, and are only using one side,  the results will be different than if you had used both sides.
  • It is also important to empty the crumb tray regularly as this can also affect toast shade.
