Burn me once, shame on you, Burn me twice, shame on me

Pros:If you've nothing better to do than hold down the lever for your toast - this one's for you!

Cons:Doody shoot - will it work? How long?

A word of advice to all, be sure to read EVERYONE'S Epinion about a product you are thinking of purchasing!

I was in the market for a toaster and read quite a few opinions on toasters and was VERY impressed with what I had read about Black & Decker T1400 VersaToast. So impressed, in fact, that it took me MONTHS to find this toaster. I even wrote to Black & Decker requesting a list of stores they had shipped these to recently. They replied to try any large store like WalMart, Kmart, etc. (What a help). Eventually I found what I was looking for at WalMart.

I was soooo excited! First of all, when I got home, the size was, behemoth! This puppy is HUGE! Not to be put off though, I pressed on, clearing off 1/2 a counter top for this.

My toaster lasted exactly 4 days. Four days of pretty decent toast. Day 5 - no toast. Neither "control lever" would stay down to hold the toast. True, if you HOLD it down for as long as it takes to make toast, it works great - but that isn't the concept of a toaster.

I called Customer Service. After pressing buttons 1 for english, 6 for appliance and I don't know how many others (isn't technology wonderful?) I finally got to speak to a real human - albeit someone just learning English, but human none-the-less. Since my toaster was so recently purchased, they suggested I take it back to the store. MY QUESTION was, "is there some sort of defect?" Their response? No.

So, off I go back to Walmart. I send my oldest daughter to appliances to get me another T1400 while I wait in line at returns. (Sometimes kids are useful this way). Anyway, by the time my turn came up, my daughter came trotting back with a new T1400. Exchange went smoothly.

I'm thinking (hoping) that it was all a fluke. I mean, come on, how many people actually hold out FOR MONTHS for a particular toaster??

Well, THIS one lasted exactly 2 days, and I'm hopping mad!!! Granted, the left side won't stay down - but the right side will, still does not appease me. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MODEL!! Or you may be burned!!
