Landscape, if it fits.  Sometimes a little squashing does the job.

If not, I whinge loudly and do portrait, then whinge loudly again as I turn it over on setting one to do the top bit, and invariably burn a section in the middle.

Always Landscape if the toaster will allow.  Sometimes it doesn't though in shit toasters

+1 so I do it portrait for a couple of mins less and then turn it around.

Landscape is the obvious choice if the bread fits that way.

Take it out halfway through and flip it if it has to be portrait and sticks out the top. A lot of sourdough breads have to be done this way, but with a liberal slaver of butter they taste so good that it’s worth the effort.

I take it Tom lost the debate at home?


Our fave bread has always been slightly too long for the toaster slots, so I've always sort of squeezed/concertina'd the slices to get them in.

Last week our usual brand of bread wasn't available, and the loaf we bought in it's stead was perhaps 1/4" longer again, making the concertinering almost impossible.

I gave vent to my frustration in a somewhat profane manner, which prompted Mrs Red to ask, "Why don't you just put it in the other way around?"

Of course I laughed in her face.

"The other way round? No one ever puts bread into the toaster the other way around".


I can honestly say, hand on heart that I had never even considered such foolishness and I truly believed that no one else had either. In fact, I was so convinced that I became involved in a wager that involved a full body massage and washing up.

For the record, I will be doing one of those things and I won't be getting the other.  

Cheers guys.

However if you put the bread portrait it’s likely give the longer bread that the top will stand proud of the toaster. This either leaves you to have warm bread top on your toast or requires you to flip the toast.  You can either do this mid toast and have slighted toasted either end with normally toasted middle. Or you can cancel said toast at some point, flip the bread and continue toasting. However this does risk get a burnt middle with toasted ends especially if you get distracted and allow the second toast to run its course. Nothing is as simple as it seems.

Isn't it stupid that you should have to compromise like that.

They could make a toaster with slightly longer or deeper slots. Hell, I'd even pay slightly more for one.

OMG! That could be the toaster of the future.

Three important questions:

Does it really exist?
Do they do a wide slot version?
Does it come in a choice of colours?

Tough times when you have to consider downgrading on the toaster front.

Lanscape for me too, though I like the idea of doing a bit of portrait for smaller loaves where it is hard to get the slices out when toasted.
