    Our toaster broke after six years. We bought exactly the same make and model to replace it yesterday. Who else has done stuff like this in their lives [with appliances and other devices generally, not just toasters]?

    six years for a toaster does not seem a good buy
    unless you are toasting a dozen loaves of bread a day
    I have a ten year old toaster that cost less than $15
    I will replace it with the same model when it expires
    I bought a $40 shredder that broke down after 2 weeks
    replaced it with a different brand
    it all comes down to value however measured

    This one here is a $30 Electrolux. We'll give it to someone and they can get it fixed.

    fixing a $30 toaster seems like bad deal unless you can do it yourself for a couple dollars
    using a second hand toaster is risky
    no telling what was toasted

    I had an LG flip phone that was about 3 years old when I got it from a friend (who "moved up to a "Smart" phone) 4 years ago. Well two winters ago while plowing our driveway it fell out of my pocket and unfortunately was "chewed up" 🙁. I went to the Bell store and asked if they had one (a n LG flip phone). The clerk said he'd check in the back. Well out he came with "the last one" (I expected he'd blow the dust off the box). He said nobody ever uses them anymore they all ask for "Smart" phones but that his grandad had one like this. I said I thought I was old enough to be his grandad and bought it. Now this "new" one was actually and upgrade because it contained a Sim card, which my chewed up one did not. I think that meant I had transitioned into the 20th century right? 😉
