After 18 hours of research and 12 hours of testing, we found the two-slot Oster TSSTTRJBBG1 Jelly Bean Toaster is the best toaster for most people. The simple, inexpensive Oster made toast, bagels, and frozen waffles better than similarly priced options and even outperformed premium models in some tests. Plus, its plastic controls stayed cool to the touch even during multiple rounds of testing, and it was the smallest of any toaster we tested.

After three years of testing and 115 hours of research, we’ve found that Royal Oak Ridge Briquets are the best charcoal for your grill. Because of the briquets’ consistent size, shape, and quality, this charcoal burns hotter, lasts longer, and produces less ash than nearly every other option in our test group. Plus, it costs only about 75 cents a pound, and it’s available year-round.
