KitchenAid Artisan 4-Slice Toaster, Empire Red

Product information

KitchenAid has extended their iconic Artisan range to include this resilient and stylish 4-slice 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, whilst the two pairs of slots work independently, for your personal preference of browning. 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.

The toaster comes with a sandwich rack accessory, to prepare delicious, perfectly toasted non-drip 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 3.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful Product I have had this product replaced twice - I'd never buy it again! Awful product. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Causing a stir in my kitchen Obviously this item is expensive for a toaster but our last expensive toaster lasted us 15 years so we are hoping this will be the same with the kitchenaid. I purchased the grey version to match my mixer, it is a big toaster but looks stylish in the corner. Very easy to use, the buttons are clear well illuminated and the toaster helpfully bings at you (sounds like a lift) as it is very quiet when the toast is slowly raised and lowered. The keep warm facility is great not sure why others think that is a bad function, it's great not to have to try and perfectly co-ordinate your eggs with the toast anymore. Toasts evenly and it's great that you can have the two sides of it on different settings. If your not sure whether this is right for you watch some of the videos of it in action on youtube. It made my decision very easy 22 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking toaster Really love the look of the toaster. I was slightly hesitant to buy it given some negative reviews, but was reassured by the long guarantee period. I have had no problems so far. The toaster does the job perfectly (and evenly) and looks amazing. I will update my review should I experience any problems... 06 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rubbish toaster This is without doubt the worst toaster I have ever had - and the most expensive too. Two issues: it does not toast evenly on both sides so you have to manually turn the bread round half way through. That should never happen and secondly and probably the most irritating is the fact that it automatically drops the toast down again into the toaster if you don't take it out within about 10 seconds.. Ridiculous..have ended up with inedible burnt toast far too many times. Will have to buy another toaster. 03 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this toaster This really is a wonderful toaster with strong styling and performance, as you would expect from Kitchenaid. It toasts evenly (quite unusual for a toaster!) and the slots are wide enough to be able to put a slice of bread in sideways, thereby ensuring the top of the bread is nicely toasted. I also love how it descends and ascends automatically, and also keeps the toast warm if not immediately retrieved. A very classy toaster that I am proud to have on my countertop. 26 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst toaster that I have had. Really disappointing toaster. If the cheese melts when you make a sandwich then you will have difficulty cleaning inside the toaster and the toaster will smoke when you toast the next slice. The toast automatically descends into the toaster and heats up again if you don't remove it rapidly. I am returning this toaster and i hope I will get a refund. 10 December 2013
