    Price Match

Product information

KitchenAid has extended their iconic Artisan range to include this resilient and stylish toaster.

Combining striking design and the best technology available, this toaster will revolutionise your morning routine. Its die cast metal construction makes a robust and stable appliance for the modern kitchen.

Extra wide toasting slots allow you to toast any type of bread without the worry of burnt pieces. A bagel function toasts the inside of bagels and buns, and warms the outside for perfect browning results. And a sandwich function with sandwich rack is also on hand for no drip toasted sandwiches. With the help of a gentle defrost function you can easily defrost and toast frozen bread- the ultimate in convenience.

7 shade settings allow you to choose your desired browning level and a LED countdown timer keeps you updated on the progress at all times. An auto sensor will automatically lower and lift the toast, and a keep warm feature is handy for keeping warm those extra pieces of toast.

Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't toast - which is a drawback for a toaster This is a lovely toaster. Well thought out, with features that can bring a smile they are so silly. I particularly like the ping as the toast descends. It's as if the bread has its own lift. Unfortunately it doesn't toast well. The toast is uneven with one side hardly toasted and the other a nice golden brown. It's not consistent either. So one day it will toast properly (albeit only on one side) and the next it will burn, without the setting changing. The lights have taken to coming on at random times without anyone near it - which is fine, but I have a sneaky concern that it might decide to start toasting at random times too. I really wanted to like this - and do, except for when making toast. Preferred my old Dualit, which lasted nearly 20 years. Even preferred the Graef that lasted only two years. 12 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Toaster Yes, it's a lot of money for a toaster but, having just bought the mixer, when the toaster packed up it all had to match. Apart from the obvious KitchenAid quality, its best feature is that it toasts the entire surface of a slice of bread. You would think that more toasters would do this, but no. This is worth the price alone! 29 March 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks can be deceiving We bought this to replace our ageing Kitchen Aid Artisan toaster whch had served us well for around 8 years. The toaster looks absolutely superb and has some great features such as defrost mode, the toastie rack and the feature that keeps your toast warm if you don't remove it immediately. So the looks and features are great the problem is that it only toasts the bread on one side (like so many others have pointed out). I returned the toaster to John Lewis York today and was told that they have had so many Kitchen Aid Toasters returned with the same fault. The sales assistant stated "why they don't do a product recall I don't know as there's clearly an issue". With that I chose not to replace it with an identical toaster and instead bought a SMEG toaster in the same colour. 28 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by really good toaster Really pleased even though it is on the expensive end of toasters it does what it says on the box 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product and very stylish It's a joy to use this toaster. I love the way the rack lowers itself into the toaster grill. It's an expensive toaster however, a real delight to use and adds a finishing touch to anyone kitchen. 22 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pricey but stylish! I bought this for my parents for Christmas. To be honest they haven't used all of the functions it has to offer yet but as a toaster it is fine. They particularly like the way it takes the toast back down to keep it warm instead of the toast just popping up and going cold and hard as with most toasters if you are not ready to butter your toast straight away. As ever, great 5* service from John Lewis!! 26 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A luxury Toast to KitchenAid The Artisan 2 slice is a ludicrously expensive toaster, but it is well engineered and a solid addition to our other KitchenAid work surface specimens. It is great fun to operate with gongs and lights and automatic loading and ejecting. It also makes fantastic toasted sandwiches using the 'cage' provided. Just a pity there weren't 2 cages. I don't regret the extravagance. 26 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kitchenaid Artisan toaster in Candy apple Today I collected the kettle and toaster in candy apple to compliment my new contemporary grey kitchen. Unfortunately when I got home and unpackaged the items the colour of the toaster did not match the kettle? The toaster had a mottled look to the metallic high gloss paint and the kettle was not high gloss and was a different shade of red! I have returned the items. 25 January 2016
