My husband brought this home last night.

He had seen it in a magazine recently and we sort of oohed and aahed over it, then I thought nothing more about it. He had to stop at Sherway yesterday to get some olive oil for me and he decided to pop into WS and buy this. :D

I took it for a test run this morning. First, it's got the widest slots I've ever seen for bagels etc. Those little blue lights at the bottom? They blink and gradually decrease as the toast is toasting. There is no lever to push to put the toast down. You push the toast button and the toast just glides down and the little racks inside move in to hold the bread. :D

There's a button you can push to lift and look at the toast to see if it is perhaps not done enough or too much. And a "bit more" button to continue toasting for a few seconds if it's not done enough to your liking.

When done, the toast doesn't "pop" but glides silently back up and a discreet buzzer sounds to let you know it's done. :D It is die cast steel or some such and is heavy as lead and has rubber base on the bottom so it doesn't slide around on the counter.

It also made very good toast.

It's not cheap, but it sure is fun to play with :D.

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.
Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

:o Does a miniature butler emerge from the side of the toaster to offer you a glass of champagne with your toast?

While we were in Florida, Mike picked this up at Relics (a salvage place that our friends took us to):

1930’s McGraw toaster.  We bought a few things, so he’s not sure, but he thinks he got it for about $40.  I shined it up and it looks gorgeous.  It gets hot, but I haven’t tried to make toast in it yet.  The fact that it belonged to strangers is squicking me out a little bit.
