My 49 year old toaster is on its final days and I need a recommendation for a new one. The toaster that we have is able to toast the outside of the piece of bread quickly enough without drying it throughout.

This is probably silly to some but I hate dried out toast that won't melt butter. Anybody have a recommendation?

Go go a Goodwill type store and look for an old model.

Being an older unit, is there any way to repair it? That was made back when stuff wasn't throw away.

Haven't had a good toaster since the one I inherited from my grandma died 30+ years ago.

I still use one my mother had. It is a Sunbeam model B patented jan. 30 1923. There are eight coils of wires that have been red hot zillions of times. I think it will outlast me!

I am pretty sure it can be repaired. You can buy the resistor wire on rolls and re wire the thing. Those old ones are screwed together so you can take them apart and give the internals a good dose of looking at to see what's up with it. DO NOT throw it away.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

I should have mentioned that the trouble I am having is that it does not want to pop the toast up when it finishes but makes a racket until you manually lift the toast. I have replaced the cord a couple of times. The fiber that lines the interior is disintegrating. This is a Proctor Silex.

Mine doesn't pop up you have to manually turn it and also watch it so it doesn't burn. Jim

Most new ones are junk the last one we picked up the setting numbers wiped off when we ran a rag over it, it has a lip that keeps the toast from popping all of the way up also. Like most China junk it's minimal efficiency at it's best.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

You could always spend the coin on a decent one. You get what you pay for more often then not. Or...you could just use a fool proof stove top toaster.

At the camp we go to in Canada they still have the ones that hold 4 pieces of bread.
The difference is you have to place the outfit on a woodstove and turn them occasionally.
