Best Retro Style Toasters For Sale: Why They Can Never Be Overrated
Retro! Retro! Retro!
I bet you love that word. If you’re anything like me at least. Living the retro lifestyle, with all its glorious vibe and gaudy color, never grows old to me. But there are some naysayers out there. Just like any fashion or lifestyle movement, there will always be haters (or should I call them squares?).
Some people thrive eating Paleo and doing CrossFit. And then others try to get down on them for being too health focused. Some people find hope in new religion, and others criticize them for being too preachy. Well, for us living the retro life, the naysayers accuse our style of being loud, out of date, and overrated.
Well, as a retro appliance aficionado extraordinaire, I’m here to set the record straight on why retro style toasters will never be overrated.
They Bring Color To a World of Darkness
You might laugh at the thought of a simple toaster fighting back the forces of evil, but when it comes down to it, filling the world with goodness starts with homes in which happiness thrives. In a world full of boring metallic appliances and cheap black and white toasters, the best retro style toasters for sale cut like a sword through the evil of monochrome with bold reds, vibrant blues, and shining yellows. If you get an extra smile every morning when you see your colorful toaster, that means your mood is a little be better when you step out into the great wide world.
If you ever think the little things are too insignificant to make a difference, remember that the moral of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of The Rings” was that the biggest changes in the world can be at the hands of its littlest people.
They Transform Bread Into Deliciousness
The best thing to happen since sliced bread is the retro toaster. Okay, so I’ll admit it. Retro toasters, at the end of the day, are still just toasters. They use internal heat coils to toast bread at varying levels of “doneness”, from barely warmed to hockey puck black. And, in doing so, they add a new element to any breakfast.
They’ve got a knob for controlling the time and a lever for lowering and raising, just like any other toaster. But the fact that retro toasters function just like any other toaster is exactly their appeal. They aren’t inefficient like the vintage models that inspire their style, and they aren’t trying to break the mold with strange new features. They just turn bread into toast, and they do it pretty darn well.
So, if you’re convinced that retro toasters aren’t overrated, and you’re committed to living the vintage life to its fullest, take a look at our personal recommendations here for the best retro style toasters for sale.
What Emma and I thought about the Russell Hobbs 2-Slice Retro Style Toaster
We thought this one was pretty dang cool, so we bought it. Not often do you see retro style toasters with a warming rank atop of it. This way you can keep your breakfast toast or bagel warm as you cook up some eggs and sausage or even just warm it up rather than toasting it as well.
It’s got just about every feature you’d need to make some great toast such as (but not limited to) the removable warming rack, a toaster timer, the lift and lock mechanism, three different toasting functions and a variable browning control level!
Like the SMEG, this one is a little bit more on the pricey side, but at the same time… Keep in mind that all of the retro toasters we review are amazing! So, get the one that fits you, rather it’s the price, style, functions, doesn’t matter! We just want to help you enjoy your awesome retro lifestyle with us!
