    She who must be obeyed has instructed me to source a toaster to replace the piece of **** that has a mind of it's own when it comes to reliable browning of bread.

    She requires no more than a two slicer given due to a medical condition I no longer can eat solid foods. It would be useful if the slots were wide enough to take a toastie, two slices of bread and filling inside a bag and perhaps have a warming facility for rolls ETC.

    Far from it as her current model has a seemingly random overclock given the burnt offerings which I can only assume is because of a heat issue, Perhaps I should water cool it, what do you think?

    Can't really help, but always go 4 slice.
    Never underestimate toast hunger, two muffins is 4 slices.....

    How about a couple of AMD HD2900's in Crossfire? you'd want a slot free in the middle to allow for doorstep toasties.

    In all seriousness, I have a Breville 4 slice which accommodates buns, rolls etc... but other brands are available.

    This. I wanted a 4 slice, my partner wanted 2 slice, we compromised and got a 2 slice. Every time I want toast or crumpets, I am disappointed.

    Just put 2 slices back to back in each rack? That's what I do, flip them around halfway and the toasted sides don't get any more toastier while the 2nd sides are being done.

    Can't go wrong with a Dualit, we've got two. You can buy spare parts for them so it should last forever. Also they look like Cylons :thumb:

    ours was around £50 I think, it is far better than the cheap one we grabbed to tide us over whilst we found one that matched everything else (her idea, not mine). It does work far better, toasts more evenly and the dial actually has things in between bread and charcoal.

    I find one of these can cook many toasts incredibly quickly. Can't believe @Mankz wouldn't want to spend more money on what is clearly a superior toast making bit of kit :D

    BECAUSE TOAST IS TOAST MATE.

    It doesn't matter what machine it comes out of as long as you can set the timing, or can be bothered to wait 90 seconds and then pull it out.

    Come on man. This is coming from the laziest git to ever be a lazy git.

    Why not get an AMD Athlon FX, overclock it to 7GHz on air (for pre-heating), then stick your untoasted toast between two Fury X in CrossFire?

    Our toaster was a £20 4-slice job from Tesco (iirc) and it's perfectly fine. Dualit are good but £50 for a toaster? Come on, bruv.
