Toasters...

Just bought the funkiest toaster today, a Rowlett - handmade in the UK.

It looks like this one but instead of black on the ends, I got one with polished aluminium.

A bargain at half price (post xmas sales).

Manual lift, and a timer for the element - a modern antique...

Nothing like toast in the morning with Rose's Blood Orange marmalade.

Nice toaster Ross, strong and industrial, the Rowlett is not unlike the Dualit I have which is hand made in France by French people, it has two slots for bread and one with a grab rack for baby seal's or kittens.

Hey, vonny, happy New Year! Yep we looked at them but the sale discount on the Rowlett was too good.

Not so keen on kittens but baby seals - yum.
