Things you wish would die but won't.
Another thread had comments about older TV's that refuse to die so that the owner can justify buying a fancy new one got me to thinking.....
What devices do we have that we would replace in a New York Minute with a newer fancier better one if the thing would only stop working properly?
My contribution is an old 4 slice Black and Decker toaster oven. It still works well. The chrome top was all black and nasty, but a touch of oven cleaner and some elbow grease got it shiny again. I covered the crumb tray with shiny foil and it toasts evenly again. It still works to heat up pizza, make warm open faced sandwiches, and of course toast bread and bagels. This morning I just used it to heat up a left over waffle from the weekend.
I really want a counter-top convection oven, but.... my old LBYM habits won't let me purchase one yet.
The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
