Did You See That?

December 27th, 2007 at 10:18 am

In the interest of not heating the oven up more often, I asked for and received a new toaster from DD and Boyfriend a year ago. I have not had the best relationship with toasters. My requirements were that it toast all kinds of things and that, hopefully, it would do it without being persnickity about the settings. I didn't want to throw out perfectly good bread anymore because of burnt stuff. I like things very toasted, but not dead. And, I hoped that I would get one that would actually pop up where I could reach the item and not have to turn the toaster upside down to get it out. I have had to get into the habit of using the toaster, so it has resided a bunch of the time in the cabinet under the stovetop. I decided in the interest of saving money, to bring it out onto the counter and actually use it. Then, something happened that I've only seen in movies. I was toasting only one piece this time and it was a smaller sized piece toward the end of the loaf. And, wow, the toaster popped up and flung the piece clear out of the toaster and across the counter. I wasn't as smooth as the movies and didn't catch it. This is too cool. I am going to watch and see if this ever happens again and practice on my movie moves....

    Please mention the brand name of the toaster. I too have not had the greatest experience with toasters and am clinging onto the Cuisinart that blowtorches bread at any setting above 3. Having a new toaster that offers amusement with properly browned and heated bread is tempting.

    ha ha ha, that's really funny. Have someone capture it on camera and submit it to America's Funniest Home Videos! If you have a dog, you could train him to catch the flying toast. Now that would really be something!

    Paulette, this one is a Chefmate with four slots. I don't think I've ever heard of the brand before. No idea where they got it. I'll ask when I talk to them again.

    LOL. I got one last year and it shoots toast too. But it's in the corner, so doesn't go far. (cornered in by walls and cabinets overhead). But the kids do love it. I Should set it out in the middle of the counter and see if I can recreate what you did. Wink

    I never saw the point of buying a plain toaster. We have always had a toaster oven. That way, we can toast whatever we need to toast, but can also cook things without having to use the regular big oven. We use ours all the time, practically every day for one thing or another.
