Testing toasters

You can fry a slice of bread on a greased flat griddle, or on a dry grill pan, or on a baking sheet in the oven, or throw it on the grill and fry on the grill.

Then, that toast is eaten mainly for breakfast. That is, in the first hour after awakening, the most hurried and poor in thoughts.

When sleep even the most simple skills.

It is terrible to think how much milk runs off at this hour, scrambled eggs are burning and oatmeal disappears.

What can we say about toasts! What else, to the devil, oven?

What are braziers?

If you want to get a normally prepared toast in the morning, buy a toaster.

Yes, he will work four minutes a day, but it will be well spent minutes.

That is how much time it takes today for the middle toaster to realize its purpose. Such a toast will be moderately dry and crunchy, just a little tender inside, and its sides will acquire the very degree of tanning, which is considered in the public consciousness a sign of appetizing.

However, it took more than a hundred years for the toast preparation process to turn from the daily curse of the cooks into an almost unnoticeable routine.

At first, the toaster had nothing but a heating element. Iron wire, through which electricity is passed, that’s all.

If you think about it, it was a terrible car. In addition to the fact that the iron informed its unromantic flavor to the bread, the wire sparkled and sometimes closed, so the cook could also be shocked when she turned the toast.

Nevertheless, the first toaster, made by the British company Crompton & The company, which entered the market in 1893, was exactly that.

The next step in the development of toasters was the invention of a heating element made of nichrome, that is, an alloy of nickel and chromium, which worked without special effects typical of iron. General Electric launched this toaster, called the D-12, into the US market in 1909.

The toasters produced today are fundamentally arranged in the same way as the D-12, but managed to acquire many additional and very life-friendly details.

So, in 1911, the toaster finally found the body, in 1919 the sleep timer appeared.

In 1926, the so-called “extra-rise” device was invented — and the toasts learned to jump out of the toaster.

In this form, toasters have survived to the present day.

True, at the beginning of the 21st century, they learned how to burn various kinds of drawings on toasts — Bart Simpson, Darth Vader, and other popular cultural legends — but in fact this did not change anything.

Dmitry Malyutin, a consultant chef at Gastronom, and I tried toasters in the simplest and most obvious way.

Two standard slices of toast bread were placed in each device, the roasting degree regulator was set to “4” and the process started.

When the toasts were ready, we examined them from all sides, and then we tried and made conclusions.

The result of our test turned out to be unexpected: among the samples presented there were frankly not suitable for exploitation. Obviously, this is the specificity of these devices.

If your toaster does not fry the way you want it, no problem — just increase or decrease the frying time next time.

And remember this number or write it on a piece of paper and attach a magnet to the refrigerator.

All presented toasters are equipped with a removable crumb tray and can hold 2 standard slices of toast bread.
