The 9 Best Conveyor Toasters
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Toast is a consumable that must be made fresh to order. This can pose a problem when dealing with high volumes of customers, especially at peak breakfast times. These commercial toasters for restaurants feature conveyor racks that slowly, but constantly, move several pieces of bread between heated elements, ensuring a ready supply of toast that is evenly cooked and fit for serving.

Keeping up with the demands of a busy restaurant can be difficult, especially at breakfast times when meals are often made to order, with a wider choice of items to prepare and different cooking requirements for each. Conveyor toasters can sit atop a kitchen counter or the table of a breakfast buffet, allowing either the chef or customer to prepare toast as necessary, and in far greater numbers than with traditional toasters.
When using a toaster of this type, care must be taken not to rest your hands on or near the body as it can become very hot. Should the toaster need cleaning, or in the event of the conveyor getting jammed, you must always turn the power off, unplug the toaster from the power outlet, and wait for the entire unit to cool before attempting to resolve the issue.
Some conveyor toasters, including the Vevor 2200W, the Vevor 2600W, and the T140 Heavy Duty, feature a chute at the back, allowing the bread to be loaded on one side and dispensed on the other. This allows the toast to be cooked similar to a factory line, with one person loading the bread and the other preparing or serving the toast, thus streamlining production and increasing productivity.
Of the models in this ranking, the Vevor 2600W will produce up to 450 slices per hour, while the Waring CTS1000B claims to produce as many as 1000 pieces of toast in an hour, or approximately 17 per minute. Compare this to a regular popup toaster, which will prepare between two and six slices of toast in two to three minutes, and the benefits of commercial conveyor toasters are clear.
