In both form and functionality the toaster has evolved from that shiny metal thing that once sat on your counter. For our money this Viking toaster is the most advanced example of that evolution and the one you should have in your kitchen now. It's a professional grade, two-slot machine with large knobs. It has multiple timer settings so you can create just that tinge of brown on whatever you're making. It also has a rewarm function which, if you're like us, you'll use more often than you think. Perhaps best of all - even better than the lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects - is the assortment of colors you can get it in: stainless gray, white, black, cobalt blue, and red.
