I learnt a rather interesting fact today. Did you know that the numbers on your toaster dial actually stand for the number of minutes of cooking time, rather than the level of how toasted your bread will be. I most certainly didn’t, it was news to me. Goes to show, you can learn something new every day!

  • The lowest setting on my toaster (1) varies with each slice of bread toasted. A white slice is toasted enough, a wholemeal or rye slice is never toasted enough & a raisin slice always burns! It would be good to have a see through toaster for my next toaster replacement!

    Dec 11, 2014 – Ever wondered what the numbers on your toaster… really… mean? This video explains. It certainly isn’t minutes, as the head-to-head toast race in the video explains. In fact, it turns out that they don’t really mean anything of real merit.
