My toaster is on its last leg and it is time to go shopping for a new one. In my house, the toaster never gets put away, so I need to find a toaster that not only works good, but looks good, too. It needs to have a cool, modern aesthetic that will fit in my eclectic home and make me smile each time I use it.

Toasters make a great gift for newlyweds, college students or recent graduates as they are the #1 most frequently used small appliance. So if you are in the market for a toaster for either yourself - or as a gift - follow along. Here are some great picks I found while shopping for my new toaster.

A Colorful Toaster to Brighten Up Your Kitchen

Find the colored toaster to match your kitchen decor

Looking for a bright punch of color for your countertop at an affordable price? The Delonghi KMix toaster is a favorite for cool retro styling in a range of coordinating kitchen counter appliances, like a drip coffee maker and electric kettle.

The KMIX toaster has all of the features you would expect of a Delonghi appliance - sturdy aluminum construction, defrost and cancel functions, and slots that accommodate bagels. But what makes this toaster a winner in my book is the range of fun punchy colors it comes in - like bright yellow, hip orange and bright green. This toaster makes the perfect gift for the bright color lover in your life.

A Toaster in their Favorite Color Makes a Great Gift!

"A long time ago, I bought this toaster. My family thought I was crazy for spending so much on a toaster . Well guess what, the thing is still going strong and looking great! I recently bought one for my daughters' first apartment and she is thrilled with it. Crazy as it sounds but this toaster is becoming a family tradition. Love it and will gladly purchase more of these as the rest of the crew move on out. "

      Cool or not cool. Modern or unmodern. Our family is now learning that a toaster is very critical small appliance and it's awkward and uncomfortable living without one. (We threw away our old toaster and haven't replaced it yet.) Not sure which one of those is a favorite. Maybe the traditional 2 or 4 slice toaster.
