Toast of the town

Our new toaster arrived on Friday. So far, so good. It's not a fancy model. I saw some SMEG toasters on line; who spends over one hundred euros on a toaster? Tefal is a good French brand, known for their cookware (we have a few Tefal frying pans) and small appliances. The name comes from combining the words "teflon" and "aluminum." The company is now owned by SEB, another French manufacturer of small appliances.

I forgot to brush off the crumbs before I took the photo. Sorry about that.

It's working pretty much as you'd expect so far; no defects. The fat slots make it easy to toast baguettes. And it's easier to regulate than the toaster oven it replaced. I'm thinking of making a batch of English muffins today. I'll also make some bagels again soon. They all make good toast.

Oh, and, by the way, today is this blog's eleven year anniversary. Or blogiversary, as it were.

  5. I love the wide slots. So many toasters in the U.S. only have skinny slots.
    Happy blogiversary!

  8. Well done on eleven years. We bought a Smeg kettle and toaster and guess what? The kettle boils water and the toaster toasts. They are absurdly priced here and although we love the look, it was money badly spent.

  11. Yes, happy blogiversary! Why, I am not sure, but I dislike the name SMEG and would not want it in my kitchen at any price.
