Re: There's an island somewhere...
I think my previous toaster came from there.
It was allegedly a 4-slice one, consisting of two long slots. Of course these slots were about an inch too short for two slices of bread laid landscape, and the depth was such that putting them portrait meant the top couple of inches poked out when it was toasting.
So either way around you always ended up with a band of untoasted bread at one end of one side on each slice.
Said abomination has now been replaced by a nice 4-slot twin toaster, and all is tasty and golden.
