A question to ponder about toasters....

Why is it that all toasters all have a setting that chars a piece of bread beyond imaginiation. I have my toaster set on like 3.5-4 That leaves an addition 6 settings that ALL burn the toast. What are people putting in there where they would need setting 10? Or do they want to set off the fire alarm?

Well, that's for making charcoal, didn't you know? Seriously, maybe there are things you could toast that would take longer than bread. I'm thinking "toaster popups" or something like that.

I don't eat Toaster Strudels or whatever those frozen things are, but I know what you're talking about. Do you really put those on the 10 setting? Wow! Of course this would be the farthest thing from my mind if I would not continuously burn the bread to a crisp...

I don't eat them either, but my kids used to. If I remember right, they took longer than toast. I always had to remember to readjust the toaster to keep from making charcoal afterwards.

Those higher settings are for things like frozen toaster pastries or frozen waffles.

it's one of those annoying things about toasters :P I hate how the inside part of toast never seems to cook as much as the outside part.
