DeLonghi Two-Slice Toaster

There's a lot to love about this six-level toaster. In addition to standard offerings (defrost, bagel setting, LED display, removable bun warmer), its coolest feature may be that if you fail to grab your toast after eight seconds, the DeLonghi will drop it back down and reheat it until you do. But what we loved most was that it produced the most consistent fare at each setting. If its brushed metal weren't such a fingerprint magnet, it'd be just about perfect. [$80; shopdelonghi.com]
