After suffering that, we measured a slice of bread before we went toaster shopping for its replacement.the 1/2" of untoasted bread is a ball ache, but shopping for toasters with a ruler?* Just buy a cheap ass 2slot 4 slicer and put your bread in sideways. Oh and if you think £150 toaster makes better toast just preheat your cheap ass toaster before you put the bread in. It's heat applied to bread not rocket science or magic.
*actually thats probably something I'd do just to embarrass the Mrs.
