So our toaster died this weekend.
I'm quite bummed as we've had it for 6 years. We have a 2-slice one that we've had for as long too -- but the 4-slicer packed it up this weekend.
So my mission was to find a new one. Our old one (and the new one) is a Toastmaster. It worked great and wasn't too expensive. I bought it at Target so that is where my search took me.
No luck. They had two four slice toasters so I opted for the Oster. For some reason I just can't bring myself to buy Hamilton Beach. Bad experiences I guess. Well, I got the toaster home and it didn't even hold a piece of bread. It had extra WIDE slices, it was too small length and depth.
Then we started looking at toaster ovens. I decided to try it out. Again. No luck. It just seemed there was too much work involved to just "make toast." So back that went.
We looked on line -- do you realize some toasters cost over $100? I don't know, that just seems a bit excessive to me! Is it worth it?
I've given up my search for the time being. Who knew it would be this hard to find a toaster? Thankfully I have a back up with the 2-slice.
Any recommendations on toaster vs. toaster oven or what makes are good would be greatly appreciated!
Anyway, I thought I would share a Samism with you....
We were eating breakfast and he was not sitting down.
Rich: Sam, sit down and eat your breakfast -- and chew with your mouth shut.
Sam: Okay. There is a button on my bum and when I sit on it my mouth chews. Watch!
