We're talking about kitchens and bathrooms this month and we've been trying to pinpoint the appliances in our kitchen that we use the most. One that immediately came to mind was our really (and I mean really) crappy toaster. It never seems to toast our bagel quite right and it's getting pretty frustrating. We never realized that a toaster could be considered a "tech" item until we started researching them in preparation for a new toaster purchase.
We recently came across the Meyer Prestige Toaster and it caught our eye. There's more to it than meets the eye &mdash yes it has a cool design, with funky "decals", but it also seems to be packing a punch somewhere in there.
One of the features we really love is the high-lift feature for easy removal. There have been so many times we've watched our significant other use utensils to try to pry his bagel out of our current toaster (let's not even get into how extremely dangerous that is). Another great feature is the reheat, defrost and bagel settings. The defrost feature isn't one we would immediately associate with toaster functionality, but we're thinking about all of those frozen waffles that people toast, or the fact that our mother freezes her bagels so they don't go bad.
More traditional settings on the Meyer Prestige Toaster include: high quality Soft Touch illuminated control indicators, 2 deep, variable width toasting slots for thick and thin bread, easy removable crumb tray, 6 position variable browning control, auto pop-up and a mid-cycle stop feature.
