I've been finding neat kitchen gadgets lately; the latest is a cool toaster with a unique feature...What feature could cause me to buy this as my first vintage toaster?
What's that on the side?
Holy crap, its got a handle! You can pick it up when it's still hot and the handle also allows you to lift the toaster with one hand (I never thought about how you usually need to use two hands to pick up a toaster)
Natch, it also has a darkness setting knob.
And the model number is B180. Probably made in the mid seventies.
Dig the vintage ad I found at www.toaster.org. yup, that's the home of the Vintage Toaster Foundation-your source for vintage toaster info (why isn't there a vintage blender appreciation group?)
