My oldest son left for college yesterday, and we have spent the last few weeks getting him prepared for this big step. His dorm room is like a mini apartment, with a kitchenette (a fridge, sink, small counter and microwave), two bedrooms and a washroom. His residence includes a meal plan, but I know how much he likes to eat, so we wanted to set him up with food in his room as well. Since he eats a lot of toast and bagels, I knew he would need a toaster.
Calphalon makes quality small appliances, like the electric grill I showed you a couple of weeks ago, and I decided that they would be the best choice for a toaster. They sent me this gorgeous stainless steel four slice toaster. The slots will fit bread or bagels, and the toaster has a defrost setting as well as a bagel setting. I like that it has a cancel button that I can just hit to eject the toast, rather than having to fiddle with the handle. This toaster has two crumb trays that easily slide out of the back of the toaster, making it easy to clean up quickly.
After using the Calphalon four slice toaster on my counter for a few days, I came to a couple of conclusions:
- It matches all of my other appliances, unlike my white toaster
- It looks really good on my counter
- A college student doesn’t need my really nice Calphalon toaster, and he can have the old one 🙂
That’s one of the benefits of sending a kid off to college, you can buy new stuff and give him the hand me downs!
