This morning, as I pedaled 9.5 miles, I stopped at yard sales along the route. Yes, I did... I carried this Betty Crocker toaster oven home on my bike. The minute I set my eyes on it, I was in love... the gushy kind like, "I can't believe how unbelievably adorable this is! Did people actually pass this one up?" There's a homeyness about a Betty Crocker brand of anything. Despite the iconic Betty Crocker not being a real person, "she" embodies the whole realm of homemaking.
Click on the photo above to enlarge it... to see why I gush.
Isn't the cooking guide and the dial just the cutest?!! ...and the handles are reminiscent of old pots. I don't have a clue how old this model is, so I'm going to pretend that it is from the 1950s or 60s. I don't know if toaster ovens even existed during that era, but no matter. It makes no difference if it was manufactured 5 years ago. It has a retro look that hooked me immediately and the $5.00 price tag sealed the deal.
