|A toaster oven that proves the existence of God.|
Second, the old one had a spring-loaded front door which made noises like it was meant to be in a Vincent Price horror movie. SQUUEEEEAAAKKKKKKKK-CRRRREEEEAAAAKKKKKK-GAAAHHHHHHHHH! The Cuisinart's door is so silent that you half expect it to whisper an apology every time you open it. "Oh my word, I made the slightest whisper. I crave your indulgence, sir. I shall never do it again."
As for toasting and cooking things, well, even the old one could do that, but is that a great accomplishment? I mean, we've been cooking things for millennia. Even a toad of a toaster oven can do that.
No, where it counts, the Cuisinart is fantastic, fabulous, wonderful, amazing, awesome. If you don't have one in your kitchen, I assure you, your friends and neighbors will mock you behind your back. And if they don't, mine will, the rude swine. Why, I could tell you stories of gossip and backbiting that would curl your hair. This one time, we opened a window only to hear ...
Hmm. I seem to have gotten off track.
Anyway, the Cuisinart TOB-135 is pretty cool. Have a nice day.
