Well a lot of toast really, four big slices of the stuff. My son has been nagging me for a four slice toaster for ages and I have put my foot down stating that I couldn't see the point of having one. Just do two slices at a time I would tell him but he continued to tell me how it would be so much better to have four slices all cooked together.
It is an debate which has cropped up so many times and there have been occasions when I have been making toast for both the boys and wished I could just do it altogether but then I would talk myself out of the idea. I would just tootle along with the trusty old cheap and cheerful two slicer and be satisfied it was doing the job.
Well I don't know what came over me. I don't know whether it was because he had finished school and yearned to eat more toast but I gave in and bought this luscious four slicer. It wasn't easy to buy either, I went everywhere for one. I looked on trusty Amazon and they didn't have one I liked that was available like today so that was no good. I went to Argos and the one I liked there wasn't available straight away then I found this one in Currys/PCWorld.
I wanted a black one to go with my other kitcheny things and you wouldn't believe this colour was so scarce at a reasonable price. I could buy blue, pink, all sorts of fancy ones but I wanted a black one. There are even toasters for about £70!! What do they do? I feel you may be paying for a name there. Designer toast, now there's a thing. I spent £40 and that was pushing it for me. After having a £7 two slice one this one was a major upgrade. We can not only get double the slices in but thicker bread, crumpets, bagels and toasted cobs. They all just got stuck in the cheap one so it's happy faces all around.
I can't even use the new arrival. I have my own cheap number for my gluten free bread so I felt a bit left out but it is worth just seeing the delight on my sons face when he tucks into his toast. It defrosts, warms up, has extra wide slots and a high lift eject facility.
For more information here are the details of the Breville Curve Toaster
I did wonder what the attraction was in a more expensive toaster with extra slots but I have to say I'm impressed. You can still toast just two slices if required so everyones happy and that as a mum is all we want eh?
Thanks for being here to share my toaster heaven......I'll be back tomorrow with my Verse for Thursday so join me for that. for now though.......
