    Default Re: Toaster question

    We have 2 breads here, Vogels for my mum and my home made stuff for us.
    Neither can be toasted properly on one toast cycle.
    Been through heaps of toasters, the best was a DeLonghi, got a display model cheaper cause it wasn't a cheap toaster.
    I read heaps and heaps of user reviews before getting this one.


    I think this is because of how they make shop bread, on the rare occasions that stuff has been in a toaster, it burns in no time.

    Ours, full browning, takes 2 goes and is just golden.
    I find you can see down in the slots to check if you lean over.....don't burn your nose...

    But yes, push it down, the timer starts over.....and it's not a mechanical timer, husband took the last one apart to see if he could modify it, nope, it's nothing but a circuit board and some elements.

    You guys spend over $40 on toasters? Hell...
    Mine was dirt cheap and I've repaired it twice now, had it so long I can't actually remember how old it is.


    It'd be entirely possible to replace the control circuit and switch with a microcontroller-based intelligent timer and a relay if you were keen, to get that sort of feature, if you really wanted it, but I find that kind of thing is largely unnecessary, once you get a feel for your toaster and the approximate time that various types of breads take to toast, it's easy to predict the right setting anyway.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Both those pics take me back to camping days with SWMBO and kids on a club section amongst the pine forest at Blue Bay, Mahia in the 70's & 80's No power in those day. Great times!

    Ah. Toast made over the open fire using a Trident.

    That takes me back to my early teens in Christchurch
