Toaster not toasting

I think it's time for a new toaster. The bread will not toast even at the dark setting. What you recommend ?

I just got a new toaster oven. It was given to me. It's a black and decker and it works really well, so far. I love these better than a regular toaster. My toaster got too hot after using so much, tossed it. The oven won't heat up the kitchen like big oven when you want to cook small things and it has a toaster timer too.

Although we don't use the toaster all that much my wife got a great deal on a Dualit toaster a couple of years ago. This thing is built like a tank and has 4 very wide slots with a manual twist timer that is nice and loud as it winds down and has that old classic look to it. These things are built to last a lifetime. I like our's very much.

I have a cuisinart 4 slice that I like alot. It stainless steel, has a retro design and the best part is is has the slide out crumb trays. I can't stand those crumb traps that flap open. I like a tray I can slide out and dump.

you can get both. a pop up is dramatically cheaper, unless you want a 4 or 8 slicer. a toaster oven is a whole different ball of wax.

Of course you know I kid....

It's a darn shame there aren't more folks who fix things anymore... everyone just goes and buys a new one, me included. I try not to, but it's so hard to find someone reliable and/or find the parts needed to repair....

Unless they're well crafted or of the commercial variety most household small appliances are basically considered disposable. They're not worth repairing unless it's something very simple like loose wiring and you know how to fix 'em.
