Our toaster gave up its elements to where ever toaster elements go. A web search produced relatively little, except expensive things, that didn’t seem worth the price. What’s in a name I growled to myself. On the continuing hunt for a new toaster, comparative shopping hubby called it, I was surprised at the choice available locally.
I really liked a relatively inexpensive, well made one I saw in a local grocery store, but it wouldn’t have fitted in the space available for a replacement toaster. It even had a bun warming rack, a feature I missed with the last one. In the end I plumped for a toaster that not only fits the space as if it were made for it, all the controls are at the right end, (no bun rack though) and it scanned at the till point £8 cheaper than the price label on the box, much to the assistant’s and my surprise. That made this toaster nearly £10 cheaper than at another store nearby. Amazing! 8|
The toaster’s controls tell you what they do, in English, instead of in the variable designs of international sign language that look like washing instructions for ‘warm up’, ‘defrost’ ‘cancel’ and ‘heat’ or, should that be ‘toast’.
