Best Pop Up Toasters In India | The Best 2 Slice Toaster Under INR 2000
Team Mishry chooses Bajaj’s 2 Slice Toaster as the best pop up toasters in India under 2000 rupees. Here’s why!
We burnt some, we ate some! After toasting more than five loaves of bread over a span of two days, we can say that Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster (Top Pick) is the best pop up toasters in India toaster in the under Rs 2,000/- category. Bajaj’s Pop-up Toaster gives the most uniform toasting consistently and has better features in comparison to its competition. We Also Recommend Pigeon 2-Slice Auto 700-Watt Pop-up Toaster and Cello Quick Pop Up 300, 700-Watt 2 Slice Toaster as their toasting was equally uniform.
Mishry Top Pick – Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster
Why did we choose Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster as our Top Pick?
We chose Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster as our Top Pick because, during each stage, it gave us consistent browning. During initial testing and back-to-back toasting over several rounds, the bread was uniformly toasted.
Batch after batch, the Bajaj 2 Slice Toaster gave us uniform browning results making it one of the best toasters in India.

Design-wise too, Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster excelled. The long cord in the Bajaj Toaster makes it a kitchen appliance that can be plugged in anywhere in the kitchen, no matter what the plug point’s placement is. It has a high-lift pop-up action. The push down button is extremely smooth as well. The cancel button is accessible and immediately stops the toasting cycle.
The presence of a top lid is a pleasant addition. No other toaster in this range usually offers a cover that can keep dust from falling between the heat coils. Once the toaster cools and is ready to be stored inside the cupboard or even is placed on the counter top, it can help the entry of unwanted particles, dust or insects in the toasting slots. The slidable crumb tray makes it easy to clean and get rid of crumbs. The plastic body of the toaster did not heat up, but the metal top sure did. So, be careful while handling the toaster when it’s still hot.
Also Recommended – Cello Quick Pop Up 300, 700-Watt 2 Slice Toaster
Why do we also recommend Cello Quick Pop Up 300, 700-Watt 2 Slice Toaster?
We recommend Cello Quick Pop Up 300, 700-Watt 2 Slice Toaster because it consistently toasted the bread evenly. We noticed throughout all types of bread (white, brown and whole wheat) that the toasting pattern and uniformity remained the same.
Cello Quick Pop Up 2 Slice Toaster, toasted the slices of bread evenly.

When we look at the design, the Cello 2 slice toaster has a smooth push down function and the cancel button is also accessible and clearly labeled. The small cord may be a drawback for a few kitchen designs. The browning dial is easy to operate and the levels range from 1 to 7. The lift of the Cello Quick Pop Up toaster is high and the slots wide enough to fit in thicker slices of bread. The slidable crumb tray makes it convenient to clean the excess crumbs from the toaster after usage. The plastic body of the bread toaster does not heat up even after back to back toasting.
Also Recommended – Pigeon 2-Slice Auto 700-Watt Pop-up Toaster
Why do we also recommend Pigeon 2-Slice Auto 700-Watt Pop-up Toaster?
We also recommend Pigeon 2-Slice Auto 700-Watt Pop-up Toaster because of one simple reason – it toasts bread evenly. Through all our testing stages, Pigeon’s 2 slice toaster gave uniform toasting on the medium setting.
Like Cello, Pigeon 2-Slice Auto Pop-up Toaster also gave uniform toasting through all stages of testing.
MRP – Rs 1549/-*

Design-wise, Pigeon, and Cello are indistinguishable. There is no difference between the designs of both the brands at all – from the cord length, placement of the browning dial, and even the cancel button. The lift of the toasts, crumb tray, and size of the slots are identical as well.
Why did Morphy Richards not win?
Morphy Richards AT-201 2-Slice 650-Watt Pop-Up Toaster did not win because the toasting abilities of the Morphy Richards 2 slice toaster was not uniform in any of the testing stages. We noticed a major inconsistency in the overall toastiness of the bread slices. Design wise we think that the absence of a slidable crumb tray is a major drawback as well. To remove the crumbs, you have to open the metal bottom of the toaster which is not as convenient. Even though the cord length is long and the settings buttons on the toaster are accessible, the uneven toasting of the bread during all our rounds is the major reason why Morphy Richards AT-201 2-Slice 650-Watt Pop-Up Toaster did not make it as our Top Pick.
Our Review Process
POP! POP! POP!
That’s the sound we heard for two days.
After popping some pale looking slices of bread and some very, VERY burnt toasts, we landed on our winner. Here is how we found one of the best pop up toasters in India under Rs 2000 for you!
Who Is This Review For?
Toasters are a necessity in any modern kitchen. A two slice toaster is perfect for a small family or people staying alone. This review is for you if your toaster is old and in need of a replacement or doesn’t do its job as well. This is also for people who are extremely particular about how well-toasted their morning toast is.
How We Picked Brands
For our review, we scanned online portals for two-slice toasters within a certain price range. While there were a lot of toaster brands to choose from, the prerequisites to qualify for our review included –
- Should be a two slice toaster
- The MRP should be under Rs 2000/-
- It should have an automatic pop-up feature.
- Readily available pan India through online portals and in electric shops
Brands We Picked
- Cello Quick Pop Up 300, 700-Watt 2 Slice Toaster
- Pigeon 2-Slice Auto 700-Watt Pop-up Toaster
- Morphy Richards AT-201 2-Slice 650-Watt Pop-Up Toaster
- Bajaj ATX 4 750-Watt Pop-up Toaster
We selected three broad parameters for our review –
- Features for everyday use – While toasters in this price range may not be loaded with many features like defrost or ‘lift and look’, we wanted to see how feature friendly the toaster is. How is the slot size? Is it too narrow to fit in thicker slices of bread? How many browning options are there? Is there a reheat option? Presence of a ‘cancel’ button?
- Design – When we say design, we do not mean the appearance of the toaster. We mean the cord length, presence of a crumb tray, and cord storage. Any other design elements that would be helpful to the end user?
- Toasting ability – How well does it toast the bread? Is the toasting uniform, or do some areas turn browner than the others? Do the browning levels justify the results? We checked for consistent uniformity in browning. Are the browning settings accurate?
How We Reviewed
Our review process was divided into three stages and spanned over two days –
During stage 1 of finding the best pop up toaster in India in under INR 2000, we toasted slices of plain white bread in three settings – Minimum browning level (lowest setting), medium browning level (middle setting of the toaster), and the maximum browning level (highest setting of the toaster). This was repeated for all brands several times.
We noticed that the minimum setting does no significant toasting and would be best suited for re-heating purposes. The highest setting across all toasters, burnt the toast. The medium setting toasted the best for all brands. Now, we took our testing to the next stage using this setting.
This time we wanted to check how consistently do the toasters perform on multiple batch toasting. Since we had already checked that the median/middle setting works best, we toasted all batches in this setting for all. We toasted two slices of regular brown bread on the medium setting to check for uniformity in toasting.
On day 2, we began our stage 3 procedure keeping in mind the morning breakfast rush in any kitchen. We began toasting two slices of whole wheat brown bread on medium setting one after the other to check for consistency in the uniformity of toasting. We toasted three batches of bread (2 pieces of bread in each round), one after the other for this stage.
After we finished the toasting process, the winner of our review was a clear one!
