A recomended toaster?

Postby BML » Sat May 23, 2020 11:51 am

I have just read an article on toasters within which a recomendation of the George Forman toaster was made. The only problem was that when I looked there were about twenty of them so could anyone thin that list out please.

When I moved in 2002, I bought a new toaster made by/badged asTefal. It is still going although I have had to repair it at least once. Obviously that model will no longer be made.

I have a second hand dualit! It has lasted for years, the timer has gone but my local electronic repair shop can fix it when they reopen. I like that it is repairable.

I second the Dualit (the pricier range is much better made than their lesser range). It just keeps going. I got it after binning too many cheap ones. 20+ years and still going strong. I’ll never go back to cheap pop ups...

When going to choose a toaster it is ESSENTIAL to do the following.

Get a piece of card and place upon it a slice of your usual loaf.
Draw round the slice and cut out the slice shape.
Take this template with you to the shop and test it in the toasters.
If the card "slice" doesn't fit don't buy the toaster.......

A friend of my wife did a lockdown Tesco order over Easter and ordered hot cross buns and they substituted, as they do. I didn't know chocolate chip hot cross buns existed but they do. Her husband likes his hot cross buns toasted. I think they've eventually managed to clean the toaster so don't need the replacement advice.

I did that Sally - well not a card but a hand size of the bread & it fitted just fine when I got the Bosch (on sale), then the bread shape changed about 6 months later making it taller so I forfeit the top rounded crust to fit it in but you have to keep an eye on it or it is charred that end!
