The toaster that came with my apartment gave up on life yesterday so I figured I’d run out and pick up a new one. My criteria was simple: ‘toasts bread’. But I have since discovered that toaster shopping is complicated. Here’s why…

For an electrical appliance that is expected to spend a few minutes browning bread and making it warm, there really is an extraordinary spectrum of prices.
You can pick up this 800 watt value range piece of plastic in Argos for €5.99.
