A Passion For Toasters…the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightIf you ask me, the humble slice of toast is one of the most comforting foods ever. Easy, portable, and inexpensive to make, toasted bread is often the first food one learns as a child to cook, and as we all know a little buttered toast is a surefire way to make certain your breakfast eggs don’t get too lonely.

As someone who used to have a classic red diner booth as part of their collection of American diner memorabilia, I know what it’s like to track down antiques and collectibles; the thrill of the hunt in thrift stores and yard sales, and the deep satisfaction that sets in when you get your newfound treasure home.

To paraphrase Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now, I love the smell of 50’s formica in the morning!

Below is a video about one such collector, Chuck Eissler, whose passion for collecting toasters started with the one he grew up with…a 1926 Hotpoint Flopper. 300 toasters later, many of the toasters are worth $500 each or more; some even sport ceramic sides instead of the chrome and nickel plated ones many of us first used when we were young.

You can see some of his beautifully designed antique toasters in the video below. Enjoy!




There’s also a good article about Chuck Eissler’s toaster collection here.

If you’re interested in antique toasters you might also want to visit the Toaster Museum’s gallery of Unbelievably Expensive Toasters and the Toaster Collectors Association.
