RIP my parents' much-loved toasterPosted at 12:30PM, 25 February 2011 by Alison Bowles - Travel editor, olive magazine
For over 50 years, my parents' Macrini stainless steel toaster has faithfully made toast; until last Friday that is.
An ex-hotel workhorse, an inspired gadget inside it meant that whether it made two pieces of toast or 40, it maintained a steady heat so that all the pieces of bread inserted were evenly and similarly toasted. But now it's broken, Macrini don't seem to exist any longer and even my fix-it husband was unable to get it working.
It's only a toaster but it had become part of the family
It's only a toaster but it had become part of the family. My parents can't bear to be parted from it so now it lives in the loft, hopefully waiting for the day it can be mended.
Have any kitchen items become part of your family? Any tips for a worthy replacement??
