Amazon has the very highly rated/reviewed Oster 2-Slice Toaster on sale for the lowest it has ever been (according to Camel, Camel, Camel) - $15

https://www.amazon.com/Oster-TSST...89%3AOster


This toaster was rated as the #1 two-slice toaster according to The Wire Cutter. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-toaster/
It consistently and EVENLY toasted items to perfection on both sides.

This should make for an excellent xmas gift for those whose toasters look like they have seen better days! Only the gray/black one is on sale - the purple one is still $30 (although, I don't know anyone who would put a purple toaster in their kitchen).
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Excerpt from the article in The Wire Cutter:

In our tests, this inexpensive and compact two-slot toaster performed as well as models double the price. The Oster's medium setting evenly browned bread, bagels, and frozen waffles better than most of the competition. And the controls are easy to use and stay cool to the touch, even after toasting multiple batches.

After dozens of hours researching and testing toasters—scrutinizing slot size, ease of use, batch-to-batch consistency, features, controls, and overall tastiness—we found the Oster Jelly Bean Toaster is the best.

Our pick for the best toaster is the Oster Jelly Bean. This simple, inexpensive two-slot model toasted bread, bagels, and waffles better than all of the competition in this price range. Unlike some toasters we tested, the slots are wide enough to fit thick, hand-cut bagels without needing to force them down. The plastic controls are easy to use and stay cool to the touch even during multiple rounds of toasting. Also, the Oster was one of the smallest toasters we tested, so it's ideal for kitchens with limited counter space.
The Oster toasted evenly from top to bottom and slot to slot, while pricier machines with the same nichrome heating element put out inconsistent results. In three successive batches, our Oster toast results were mostly consistent, with some darker patches on the second batch.

The Oster's bagel and frozen settings performed better than most other toasters we tested. Some models such as the Krups Breakfast Set and the Hamilton Beach Cool Touch barely browned bagels inside or out. While the Oster toasted some of the seeds on bagels more than we'd prefer, it toasted the cut side very evenly. The frozen setting toasted Eggo waffles nicely, making them crispy on the outside but not dried out or burnt.
The Oster's ample slot size is big enough to fit thick slices like hand-cut bagels, which went down without needing to be pushed in. This wasn't the case with other models we tested, such as the Cuisinart CPT-440, which required us to force bagels down into the machine. Even though the Oster's slots are deeper, the "toast lift" feature on the lever allows you to easily retrieve smaller items like English muffins without using tools (or getting burned).

The controls themselves are simple, featuring a knob that accurately adjusts the darkness of the toast and buttons that allow you to select the mode or cancel the toast cycle. All the parts you touch and twist on the Oster stay cool, unlike the chrome and brushed stainless Krups model we tested, which gets hot right where you touch it. The speckled gray metal body lends the toaster a little weight, too, so it plants securely on a countertop without wobbling.

The Oster's compact size and curvy design means it takes up slightly less space than some of the more boxy toasters we tested, which is nice if you plan to store it in a cabinet. If you have a small kitchen and your counter space is at a premium, the Oster is the way to go.

Overall, cleaning and maintaining the toaster was similar to the other models we tried. The built-in crumb tray can be removed and wiped clean for easy cleanup. Also, like many of the other toasters we tested, the Oster comes with a one-year limited warranty. If you encounter problems with the toaster during normal use, contact Oster for a replacement.


Long-term test notes
After more than a year of use, the Oster toaster still operates like new. Its heating elements and bread-catch cages are functioning at 100 percent, and the exterior finish appears pristine. It has some interior crumb accumulation that's nothing out of the ordinary. And if you're toasting whole wheat breads cut in ⅝-inch-thick slices, here's a tip: We've found that the perfect spot on the dial is between the 4 and 5 marks.

Honestly I did not, as I see no link to anything on mobile app. As that is paragraphs and paragraphs and I just wanted a simple yes or no I don't know that I would have clicked it, but thanks for posting the text of the link very helpful.

I own this toaster and can grade it as A+. It has lasted many years and continues to perform flawlessly. A simple design that does exactly what it was designed for. A good deal!

Thank you for being so nice. Internet needs more people like you. You could have been a jerk, but you took the high road.

They were just pointing out useful info - now that I am on my laptop I see what they were referring to, but could not see in the app. No reason to be a jerk just to try and get a laugh! Thanks for the nice response, made my day!
