A Neeeeeeeeeew Toaster!

The excellent people at CSN Stores gave me $65 to spend on their merchandise.  I thought and thought about what I might like, and then my toaster gave out.  We received two toasters as wedding gifts and they both broke almost immediately.  In the ensuing years we had one toaster, purchased at Rite Aid for $12, that had it's own special button for Pop Tarts, and this one:

The main problem with this toaster is that it doesn't toast enough, which is a pretty big problem for a toaster.  Also, once the toast pops up, you have to wait like two minutes before you can push the little thing down to toast again, and by that time, you're sick of toast.

Also it is filthy.

I ordered a nice, sleek looking Cuisinart toaster from CSN Stores, and it arrived today.  I unpacked it and gathered the children round to make some toast.

Clearly much of the  idiot population of Australia, the UK, US and France purchase Cuisinart toasters.

Enough people must have become entangled in the toaster cord to warrant this warning.  That is something I would like to see.

Until now I was unaware that "overtoast" was a real word.

I intend to fill this page with toaster notes, or perhaps a log book.  "January 22, 2011, 10:34 AM  Inserted two slices whole wheat bread, set dial on three, toasted.  Result:  toast."

Shiny, sleek, clean toaster with slots so wide you could fit your hamster in them.

Bread, ready for toasting.

...and toasting... the thing you push down was very smooth and required no extra force or jiggling to get it to stay down.

Premature ejection!  This was no problem as the Cuisinart Metal Classic 2-Slice Toaster can retoast immediately.

My daughter preferred her toast cinnamon style.

The result:  two thumbs up.  I would recommend the Cuisinart Metal Classic 2-Slice Toaster for anyone who is looking to make two slices of toast!
