I asked for something simple for Hanukkah this year.
Earlier in the year, our toaster oven's power cord doubled back on itself and melted together, causing a short. This led to us assuming that the refrigerator had failed, when actually the breaker had popped; by the time we realized that the new frig was en route. After all the electrical was confirmed functional, we trashed the toaster oven (it was toast, of course), and have been without for a while. In the interim, my beloved has used the oven to toast, but that seems to me to be a waste of electricity, so...a toaster.
On the one hand, it's a classic-looking thing. OTOH, it's got all sorts of specialized buttons on it that I've never seen on a toaster before, so, nice. I tested it out last night and it does the job well. Gazing into my crystal ball, I see many English muffins in my future.
