Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp which no decent human being would eat?

You know, that is a good question...I hope someone can answer it, because I sure can't...maybe some things need such a heat setting. I haven't seen anything like that yet though...

My ex girlfriends dad would always burn the Hell out of his toast. It was desgusting. what was worse was when i would be over there and i would make toast not realizing that it was set that way.

I love that chocolate milk commercial where the salesman is showing the woman a toaster and he says,

"It also has a cancel button, in case you don't want toast."

I always store my bread in the freezer. When I want some toast, I get two slices out, put it on that setting, and voila, toasted bread that you couldn't tell was frozen!

Bread doesn't keep long enough when placed outside or in the fridge.

It's nice not to be limited that way, you know? I can't imagine any situation where it would be imperative, or even advantageous to cook toast to such a degree, but what if you needed to, and the option wasn't available? What if a burglar broke into your house, and put a gun to your head, and said to you, "Make me burned the fvck up toast or I'll shoot!"? What then? Now do you see the value of working with an open-ended scale?

LOL!! Good Point.... I have always wondered myself if you can only do 70 at the fastest anywhere (On Interstates) then why do all cars go well over that? I think it is because if they started making them to not go over the top speed allowed, imagine all that income that the government would lose from not writing near as many speeding tickets.....

I would be a tad uneasy defrosting my toast in a toaster. Water+heating elements = shock

if the toast is burned.. i just put tons of peanut butter on there. it's actually very good.

i actually like toast burned.
which is why my toaster oven pisses me off.. crank it right to the end to "dark" and it's hard to get it golden brown.

well the cars some people race them:D

Some people drive abroad and can go faster. Not quite so valid in the states as your hardly going to take your car in to the autobahn!

In England you can get over the channel and do that route:D
