No more burned fingertips!

Thanks go out to Rachel who, over the Thanksgiving holiday, gave me an insight into toasters which will prevent me from further burning my fingertips when I reach in to pull out the toast each morning. It turns out that my toaster does, in fact, work similarly to hers.

My fingers, upon which my job and my hobby depends, are most grateful.
