    Toaster Broke... SOGA??

    Hello

    My £4.48 Argos Cookworks toaster has given up the ghost...
    I have had it two years, and now the lever will not stay down.

    I am still making toast, but I have to keep my hand on the handle until (I think) it is done...

    So do I get it replaced under the sales of goods act. I would expect a toaster to last more than 2 years...

    P.S. If not, any advice for a goods toaster??

    erm my gob is smacked :w00t: you serious?

    You... can.... not...... be......... serious........

    Erm.. wth?

    Soga expectations do take price into account.
    £2.24 per year of service is fantastic value. You think the £50 type toasters last 20+ years?
    Just buy another one?

    Moo, you promised never to tell that I knocked you around in our kinky sessions x x

    For the sake of £4.48, it's not worth it !!

    buy another one,please please

    If the staff at your local Argos can keep a straight face they might replace it for you out of pity. Then again it is Argos.

    Not that serious, you can't go wrong with a £4.50 toaster, but I feel a little crappy throwing it away...
    All this environmental nonsense all over the place.
    I am going to try a take apart later, but will get a replacment.
    I have been looking around, the one complaint I did have about it was the bread always stuck out of the top... So need a bigger toaster I think.. If they do one??

    don't throw it away, haven't you seen the episode of the simpsons, where home turns the toaster in to a time machine (tree house of horror i think)

    DO NOT THROW IT AWAY...
    Strip the heating wire from it connect it to a 12v 1A+ adaptor and use it as a foam cutting hot wire, or for a fancy firework detonation system, loads of other uses:

    The wire on its own would have cost you more than the toaster!

    I have cut off the plug as it was not moulded one... Yippee..

    Toasters are overrated anyways, use the grill instead - I paid £40 for my last toaster and it still bl**dy can't cook both sides of the bread evenly!

    Turn the bread on it's side unless its square bread and not rectangular.

    I think the £4.48 toasters are for little bread only.
