Hi all, I just wanted to let everyone know of a toaster we purchased, which turns out to be a much safer toaster (as far as touching it goes), than is usual. It's a "Lift and Look" made by Breville. It has two very long, very wide slots, which will accomodate any type of bread. When done, it beeps and lifts the bread up and partially out of the toaster so your fingers don't have to come close to the toaster to get your bread. In addition, the side and a inch wide strip on top (around the outside) are made of a "cool touch" substance, which is safe to touch when the toaster is operating. The toaster mechanism is recessed down from the top sides, so it's hard to accidentally touch the center divider and possibly burn yourself. It has electronic controls, which consist of 5 easily felt buttons, and is white. There's a button for frozen bread which adds some time to the setting of the slide lever, and another button which causes it to only heat one side of each bread slot (for bagels). It sells for $70. hth, Chip Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
