I bought a new toaster last night. Some advice: don't just buy the cheapest toaster at Wal-Mart. a) The slots are too narrow to toast a bagel.
b) the slots aren't long enough to fit a piece of break.
c) the thingy doesn't push down.
Yeah. Once I crammed my bagel, then my boyfriend's bread into the slots, I couldn't even toast them because it's a piece of royal crap. Then again, what did I really expect from a $6 toaster?
