I was reminded of these recently and I got the desire to replace my wheel of fortune toaster with one of these. They were built like tanks. All our family had one at each of their homes and they always seemed to work well. I got one on Ebay that the seller said was intermittent in starting the cycle. I got it and took it along to work to industrially clean it out. I also buffed off all the food contacting parts of it. I have it clean and have just performed a simple adjustment I learned online. and it works quite reliably. Now to find some Vegemite to really set things off.
