3-slice Toaster

for the Clubhouse
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

Toastation devices come in multiples of 2 slice models, which is entirely disconvenient--usually resulting in waste heat or waste toasted bread--when assembling the traditional double-decker Club(house) sandwich.

Enter the three-slice toaster--capable of accepting various widths of bread--which, in one swell foop, toasts all three slices of bread needed for the club, with no waiting for the third slice (as when using the common 2-slice toaster).

Also useful when toast is served to couples with a 'one child only' policy, the cast of Three's Company, the Three Bears, Winken, Blinken and Nod, the Three Stooges and similar.

Comes with attached container of extra-long toothpick skewers with little coloured frilly bits on the end.

Why not?! It's obviously a great idea. [Sgt Teacup, Feb 26 2021]

       I have one of those Dualit 3 slots. It's a fine instrument devoid of any digital rubbish.

       A lot of companies make fragile plastic junk and try to sell it for three times its value by claiming it has "features". This pissed me off, but I really blew my top when I read "redefining quality" in a business textbook that advocated that practice. I'm a neophile: a forward-looking lover of technology and science. But I share your revulsion of e-garbage with a passion. It's insulting, bad for the environment, bad for the consumer, and obvious. They may as well put "you'll pay what we charge, retard" on the packaging.

       As for the idea, [+/-]
Voice, Feb 26 2021

       [Voice], yes, we agree about the e-waste. This is not a junky gimmicky toaster. This is an analog toaster, clunky, steel body, substantial, no corn-based plastic cord for the mice to chew.   

       The reusable biodegradable container of bamboo skewers is a convenience meant to hold the quarters of the first few club sandwiches together. Like the tiny 'taster' bottle of whisky attached to the neck of the full-size Crown Royal bottle, it's a little extra, just for fun.

       I've seen 4-slice models, but not 3-slice.

       ^Just check out those links there are plenty of three slice toasters!

       The Dualit toasters (not the cheap Dualits, the proper, original Dualits) also have the benefit of being repairable. When, after a few decades of regular use, the timer, or a heating element breaks, you can order a new part and fit it yourself.

       I can confirm, [hippo]. We have had a Dualit toaster for a long time now... one of the industrial ones.

       [RS] you could get a 4-slice one and stick gaffer tape over one of the slots.

       I love the smell of burning gaffer tape in the morning
hippo, Mar 03 2021

       Well use tinfoil then. Why do I have to do all the thinking here?
pocmloc, Mar 03 2021

       It's your day in the rotation. It works sorta like the V that geese fly in.
