  • - Is that-- - That's a steak.

  • - Done?

  • - Oh, my god.

  • - It's medium rare.

  • - The internal temperature is medium rare.

  • - Last week I received what is probably the pinnacle

  • of toaster technology.

  • The precipice, the peak, the best toaster

  • money can really buy.

  • This is the Revolution Toaster from Revolution Cooking.

  • It's a smart toaster.

  • It's got a touch screen where you can select what you wanna

  • toast and how much you want it toasted and best of all

  • as many of you pointed out in the comments of my last video

  • no more jump scares

  • because it smoothly elevates your toast when it's done.

  • The only catch is it's $300

  • which is a lot of money to spend on a toaster.

  • So I wanted to see how compared to a more humble toaster.

  • So I went on Amazon I found the top reviewed toaster

  • and I bought it. (chimes going off)

  • This is the Bread King Toaster.

  • It comes in at just under $30 and it has thousands

  • of five star reviews.

  • It's also about as standard as a toaster gets.

  • So today I'm gonna be toasting a bunch of toast-able items

  • to see if this $300 toaster is really worth your money

  • or just your awe at looking at the shininess of it.

  • That's really what I do most of the time.

  • You can just catch me standing in the kitchen

  • leaning over the counter, batting my eyelashes at it.

  • Am I attracted to a toaster?

  • No. (upbeat music)

  • To make this a bit more scientific in addition to my own

  • opinions I've enlisted the help of my roommate Will

  • who will be doing a blind taste test of everything

  • I toast today.

  • So without further ado, let's toast.

  • Cheers.

  • Get it, toast.

  • (dramatic music)

  • Bread, it's fresh.

  • A little over medium toasted.

  • How many settings are there?

  • There are six settings.

  • I think the hardest thing about this is gonna be comparing

  • actually what the settings on this dial are to the brownness

  • on this thing but I'm just gonna put this on four

  • and start.

  • The smart toaster has a countdown timer on it

  • so I know how long it's gonna take.

  • This is really gonna be a surprise.

  • (toaster alarm going off)

  • Oh, it's done.

  • Out. (gasping)

  • Oh, and that's done shortly after.

  • So this is the toast out of the smart toaster

  • and this is the toast out of the regular toaster.

  • One, the regular toaster cuts off a bit before the top

  • whereas the smart toaster it goes almost all the way up.

  • Just how does it taste?

  • Because to be honest I can't see why there would be

  • a difference.

  • (knife scraping bread)

  • (dramatic music)

  • That sure is toast.

  • All right, let's try the other one now,

  • There is not much difference.

  • I want to say the flavor of the bread is retained

  • a little more in this but that could just entirely

  • be a placebo effect.

  • If I had to pick one I would pick the Revolution.

  • (biting into toast)

  • - This one's crunchier on the bottom.

  • I would pick this one

  • only because the bottom of this one is too crunchy

  • and the top isn't all that crunchy.

  • Like it feels one-sided.

  • I really don't taste enough of a difference to make

  • an informed decision.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (gasping)

  • - It's me.

  • So these are mostly frozen.

  • I'm gonna see how these two toasters cook from frozen.

  • Waffle, frozen, let's go with medium.

  • Start.

  • They both get very hot very fast.

  • This toaster just in the middle of the cycle turned all

  • the heating elements off for a second and then I think

  • turned them on again?

  • There's definitely some like cooking pattern going

  • on in here that's not just heat up food.

  • Toasting the waffle.

  • (toaster tray popping up)

  • And it's done.

  • They both kind of got mushed at the bottom.

  • The cooking on both of them is pretty similar.

  • (biting into crunchy waffle)

  • Even though they look very similar

  • in how much they were cooked,

  • this one feels a little under cooked.

  • I do think this did a little bit better,

  • but not 10 times better.

  • - I'm gonna try the left one first.

  • (biting into crunchy waffle)

  • It feels pretty evenly cooked.

  • This one feels much more cooked, much more solid.

  • This side of the waffle is like too hot to touch

  • and this side of the waffle is fine.

  • I like the crunch on this one more, it's not overdone.

  • This one I think is overdone.

  • This one looks more overdone, but it's not.

  • What the (beep).

  • (biting into crunchy waffle) (laughing)

  • (dramatic music)

  • - Has...

  • (toaster tray popping up) Oh, that's not done.

  • So the difference between a little over three and a four

  • is like cutting the cooking time in half?

  • That doesn't make any sense.

  • Hot, ow. (waffle falling)

  • Ow. (waffle falling)

  • So let's taste test the English muffins

  • or as they call them in England, muffins.

  • (biting into crunchy muffin)

  • Oh, this toaster looks on the surface like it completely

  • cooked this English muffin,

  • but the crunch on this one was more pronounced.

  • So I don't know what's happening.

  • This one actually is better I wanna say.

  • - I'm gonna eat the right one first.

  • Oh, that's a hot English muffin.

  • (biting into crunchy muffin) (playful music)

  • (biting into crunchy muffin)

  • Yeah, this one tastes overdone.

  • I don't know if it's to do with the way it was toasted

  • but this one is still one that I wanna eat more of.

  • We've toasted all these normal things

  • that you put in a toaster.

  • I wanna see how these toasters do against something else.

  • - Oh no.

  • - How does a steak dinner sound to you?

  • (package hitting table)

  • (upbeat music)

  • - This is a very cheap steak.

  • - It's like a steak had a child with a burger.

  • Can you imagine if it rejected it?

  • (laughing)

  • - Steak detected. (laughing)

  • Please remove steak from toaster.

  • Oh yeah.

  • (mumbling) Oh is it going to fling it up?

  • (laughing)

  • I didn't even consider that.

  • Tug with it.

  • - [Cameraman] Oh that's not done.

  • - That is not done.

  • - All right- - That's definitely

  • a bit done.

  • Oops, oh!

  • - What happened?

  • - It didn't jump.

  • It's definitely cooking.

  • I'm putting it back in.

  • - That doesn't look raw at all anymore.

  • - Yeah, that looks like a steak.

  • - That's a steak. - Is that done?

  • - Oh my God, the--

  • - It's medium rare.

  • - The internal temperature is medium rare.

  • (toaster tray popping up) (laughing)

  • - Scary.

  • - That looks.

  • - Oh my Gosh. - What are you talking about?

  • - All right, let's cut these open.

  • Let's see how they taste.

  • - I wouldn't say this one is well done.

  • But it's. - Oh there's still some

  • pink in there.

  • - It's definitely medium.

  • - And this is definitely a bit more medium rare.

  • - Yeah.

  • All right, do we eat it?

  • - Let's try it, yeah.

  • (laughing)

  • - It's still disgusting.

  • - Not good.

  • - It's a really bad steak. (laughing)

  • - Yeah.

  • - I kind of wanna try a nice steak in the toaster.

  • (laughing) Like marinade it?

  • I definitely don't think that the toasters let us down.

  • I think, I think the choice of steak

  • let us down more than the toasters.

  • - I just. - For sure.

  • - I should have bought a more expensive steak.

  • (laughing)

  • - I mean, there's always next time.

  • (energetic music)

  • - Overall I would say there's not a huge difference

  • between these two toasters.

  • - I really think that I wouldn't call

  • out the fact that they were made with different toasters.

  • - Yeah.

  • With this one

  • the main thing you're getting is predictability

  • in terms of how your toast is going to come out.

  • This does cook toast a little faster.

  • And I think overall the toast is more evenly cooked

  • but not 10 times faster.

  • And 10 times more evenly cooked.

  • Links to both of these toasters will be down

  • in the description below.

  • This toaster, while it's overkill,

  • it's probably the best toaster money can buy.

  • If you want to save a few bucks

  • this is honestly a very good toaster.

  • It did the job.

  • - This one wins the award for best toaster.

  • This one wins the award for most toaster.

  • - For the money?

  • - Yeah.

  • (energetic music)

- Is that-- - That's a steak.
