My Sunbeam Toaster

28 posts in this topic

Ok, so I have a Sunbeam toaster.

I made some toast with the temperature selection set on "4.5".

It was dark brown, but still good.

Now the fun part.

You know those friends that come up with those "ideas"?

Well, I had one at my house today.

He suggests to toast bread at selection "7".

Do you know what "7" does to bread on this 3823-100 model Sunbeam toaster?

It gives you a square charcoal briquette and the scent of burnt popcorn. Now, this just might be me, but I feel that temperature "5" should be "7", or have "5" as the highest setting.

Being the pain I am, I sent a statement (not a real complaint) of my opinion regarding this. My most important statement?

"We feel that for consumers that desire their products burnt beyond recognition, they should cycle the product through the toaster more than once, and not due to a preset temperature setting."

Later discovering that Sunbeam makes electric blankets is rather unnerving. :P

I wonder what "7" on their blanket does?

Hey! That's not very nice!

I don't have a job right now, so, while preparing a spot of lunch, why not fiddle see what something will do?

You have no idea how much so. Especially this time of year, no outdoor plant stuff to do.

Here's the King of boredom... *faintly says "hi"* :P

Anyways, my microwave is losing power. It now takes 1:30 to cook Chef Boyardee Mini Ravioli and Cambells Chicken Noodle Soup. It used to only take 1:00. How bad is that? I know... I know! It's terrible, isn't it? I'm going to write them about it... Damn Sharp microwaves... <_<

Sorry, just had to... :lol::D

LMAO. It's kind of like me putting a quarter on top of one of those elcectic ball thingys, you know, the ones with the glass globe and the centre rising core, and when it's turned on, it gives off waves of purple electric arcs. When you touch the quarter, it zaps you. It's fun with other people too.

You know what I've always wanted to do?

1.) Take someone underneath a hornet's nest.

2.) Tell them to wait there for a second.

3.) Hurl a rock at the nest.

4.) Run like hell and hope you get away.

Voila, instant fun!

Yea, I figure the higher ratings are for different types of items of different densities and temperatures and whatnot...

That may be, but isn't it fun to toy with physics (and mother nature)!?

But see, if they stopped at 5 or 7 and my GE toaster goest to 10..........then some consumer reports journalist would make large of the inferiority of a 7 range toaster versus a 10 range toaster, and if the 10 range GE toaster would "toast" the square brickette to a smolder in .05 seconds faster than your 7 range Sunbeam it would be clear that the Sunbeam company & all its assets & obviously "overpaid" employees should be deleted.

:unsure:

My toaster is stoopid. I leave it on the same setting all the time, and I always buy the same bread... but my toast is never the same color twice. :huh:

I won't buy Sunbeam anything anymore. Back a number of years ago, the board brought in a new CEO (Al "Chainsaw" Dunlop) for the explicit purpose of sectioning off the company, and bumping the bottom line. Good old Al did just that -> selling off any "non-core" holdings, which infused them with a one-time bump in cash. When financially beneficial, he layed off thousands and closed down plants - just to sell the land and buildings. Anything for a buck type of guy. Screw the long-term - what benefits the bottom line today? Sure enough, shareholders were rewarded with a great return on investment for a couple of years. I won't reward such business practices with my money.

This one's from an ex-GF of many years ago.

Middle of winter, lots of snow on the ground, and her mom is baking cookies in the kitchen, mixing the dough with an electric mixer. This is pretty stiff dough. The ex and her dad are in another room, and they can hear the mixer laboring under the load.

Suddenly they hear a scream from the kitchen, followed by a door slam. They run to the kitchen, where Mom is standing at the back door, panting, and looking out into the snow-covered yard. Following her gaze, they see black smoke rising from a crater in the snow, like the Imperial probe droid scene at the beginning of "The Empire Strike Back".

Turns out the mixer overloaded and caught fire; Mom did the reasonable thing ( :blink: ) and threw it out the back door!
