The toaster is a small appliance designed to toast multiple types of bread products. Common household toasting appliances are now the pop-up toaster and the toaster oven.
Pop-up toasters make toast from bread in 1 to 3 minutes by using heat elements. Pop-up toasters with wider slots have been manufactured, enabling these toasters to toast bagels and English muffins cut in half. Toaster ovens have heat elements above and below a grilling area that is large enough for reheating a slice of pizza.
