That title isn’t hyperbole or clickbait nonsense. This really is better than your toaster. At least, I think so. Seriously, can we make this the norm, please? If we figured it out in 1948, you’d think we woulda kept going with it. I mean, really.
Looking for the previous video?

My Sunbeam looks even older than this one, really enjoyed finding out how it works.

Heh, my grandpa still uses one of those daily. He learned how to fix it and it's been going strong since 1961.

Came here via Tom Scott's Disconnected. Wasn't disappointed. Subbed.

"This toaster is an amazing display of engineering and is better than anything we have today! It only has one flaw..." proceeds to explain how it's a horrifying potential electrical hazard

"After 60 years, this thing still works. There's barely anything that can cause this toaster to break down." And now you know why modern companies don't make them like this. They want you to buy a new toaster every 10 years. It's called planned obsolescence.

“Oh god, he’s got a THIRD one?!?!”

THAT gained a sub from me.

This channel is just amazing. I clicked on this video thinking "wow, he's overreacting. It's a toaster they don't do much" then pulled out the perry the platypus equivalent of a toaster and now can guarantee I'll be raving to all my friends how cool old toasters were

Our latest toaster didn't just startle you when the bread was ready, it often threw the newly toasted bread out with such force that it ended up on the floor. That wasn't a great design.

"Through the magic of buying two of them I have an already disassembled toaster right here." - take my like sir.

I need this toaster now. The uneven sides of toast is amazing. That means you can give extra firmness and dampness resistance directly under your toast topping, while not having as much "burn" taste on the un-spread side of the toast.

Fun fact, this exact toaster makes an appearance in the movie Mortal Engines. It is even called out by name and praised for how awesome it was.

You made me giggle so hard when I heard "Oh God he has a third one." I love this channel.

As a mechanical engineer that HATES modern toasters... thank you for this. I've been looking for a good toaster for years.

by jumpanama 1 year ago

I measure a toaster not by it's ability to warm bread, but by the bravery in it's heart.
