A 2-slice Viking Professional Toaster "Caught My Eye"
This toaster is no longer on sale and I'm sure it is an amazing toaster but the $400 plus sticker price gives me pause. If money is no object, keep reading and see if a professional Viking toaster is right for you. Otherwise, you may want to check out some of the other toasters offered at Amazon.com. Be sure to read the reviews and find one that fits your needs and your wallet.
Right now there are some very good holiday deals going on and here's one that "caught my eye". A bright red Viking 2-slice Professional Toaster that's $100 off the regular price at Cooking.com.
We have a decent, inexpensive toaster now that works ok but this one has a lot of style and looks like it's built for the long haul. I'm not going to spend $250 on any toaster. I don't care if it toasts 5 bagles and 10 slices of bread but take off $100, I'd think about it.
According to Viking, this toaster is professional-grade and offers restaurant quality toast (I didn't know there was a difference). The toaster is built with plenty of insulation to keep the heat in thus maximizing the toasting process. Made of stainless steel with "hydraulic engaging and lifting action levers" (sounds like a truck's lift-gate) and wide slots to accommodate bagels, the toaster features Viking's exclusive design and tooling. Ok, I'm interested and it would look very cool next to my red blender and red food processor.
One reviewer said, "We've had a lot of toasters, and this one is by far the very best. Bread, bagels, English muffins, pop tarts, frozen waffles, it handles them all very well and toasts evenly"¦If you can spare the cash, it is a great toaster and should be the last toaster we ever have to buy. It also looks great on the counter."
It also comes in white and a 4-slice Model.
I've already purchased a bunch of Christmas presents for my wife and me at Amazon.com so I can recommend using them. They offer competitive prices and good service even around these busy holiday times.
Right now there are a bunch of great deals going on some of my favorite cookware and kitchen items plus they have some special shipping deals. I'm not sure about you, but I find shopping on the Internet and staying out of the frenzy at the malls much easier.
Either way, Happy Holidays.
