I bought this yesterday:

The base seems to be the size of a vintage sterno stove colapsable type. Oops, have you seen one like it. this one is heavy gauge steel.

I remember well the scraping part. The P&J covered up most of the burnt taste. Back then I didn't have the patience to sit there and watch the bread become toast like I sit and watch water boil today :lol: Easy to burn toast, hard to burn water :lol:

Oops, I could have won big money if I had bet on you having more than 1 of these.....I new you would come through having at least 2. I'm going to use mine next week when I go on vacation locally to prepare for the big annual Halloween Campout. I need to get to the campground early so I can relax before the grand kids arrive on Thursday.

I'll use one of my companion burners as the heat source. The size I sent with the wood burner.

If you want to make a big hit..make a jack-o-lantern face pattern to put on your BURNT TOAST for the kids.. :lol:

That one appears that you can maybe undo the wires at the top,take the top off,and put your Cocoa pot on top(potstand) while you are burning toast..dual purpose!..Take marshmallows for the cocoa and also toasting through that top hole afterwards..feed them lots of those old sugary "Campfire brand" marshmallows(the ones that came in the small blue-white boxes,remember?)..then send them back to their parents for the evening all wired up.. :shock: ... :lol:

I wonder if anyone still has collected those old marshmallows in the boxes.. :roll: ..probably still good-to-go! :DB: :DP:

If you look at the picture on this page,it shows the old boxes they came in.. :mrgreen: --->

The companion burners throw off a lot of heat so the toaster will be just right to tame the flame down to marshmallow cookin use. Toast mallows and bread at the same time. I like them both fresh and soft also stale and chewy :lol:

those old ones in the box might still be chewy good! I don't remember them being sold in a box :?

RR, I won't buy another toaster. this one was a curiosity and it is built well. Not like the new ones.

Another thing, this toaster is not very tall. Made for DIY bread at home :D
