Does anybody ever use a toaster for bread anymore? All of my friends and family seem to use it only for a Ego waffles and pop tarts. It’s no wonder. My toaster has two settings. One, to warm the bread slightly and two, smoke detector mode.
I think that maybe it’s time to get a new toaster. But is it really worth it? I don’t eat Pop tarts and I gave up toast long ago after nearly burning down the neighborhood.
In today’s world there are so many different ways to cook things. Conventional oven, convection Alvin, microwave oven, air fryers. Etc. I hearby declare toasters obsolete. Someone had to say it and now it’s done. I urge you to turn in your toaster’s peacefully, without incident.
The last thing any of us need is a toaster riot like we had 23 years ago. At that time, everybody was so into toasters that supply could not keep up with demand. There were riots, cars set ablaze. President Clinton called in the National Guard to restore order. It was an ugly time in American History. Let’s not repeat that.
