Toaster keeps on going and going and going…..
Sometimes you come across such an awesome, stunning, example of good design, you just can’t help raving about it — as engineer Alden Harsch does here in waxing enthusiastic about his Model 1B14 toaster. And here’s a bit of trivia – it held the title of the world’s most popular toaster for more than a decade in the 1950s. It’s not hard to figure out why. “My parents purchased this Toastmaster toaster around 60 years ago. It was passed on to me when I went to college, and I use it every day. I haven’t even had to so much as readjust the “brownness” control – it works so perfectly. My only complaint is that I have to flatten my bagels before toasting them!” Sigh…if only modern appliances were built like this oil tanker.
