One impressed commenter wrote: ‘Is he posting his findings? Will save time for lots of people and I for one would appreciate it’

Another added: ‘Glad to know my dad isn’t the only person who’s ever done this.’ 

A stream of responses praised the father who had the idea of using a cardboard piece of bread to test toasters

Others revealed they have taken an actual slice of bread to the shops to measure toasters when searching for a new appliance.

Another said: ‘I’d like to arrange a conference between bakers and toaster manufacturers to come up with an agreed size. 

‘Always too narrow or too deep. Your friend’s dad is onto a winner there though.’ 

A number of contributors to the thread confessed they had taken a slice of bread along to stores when shopping for a toaster

Another user sparked a debate over which way the bread should be put into the toaster.

He wrote: ‘Is there a debate to be had on which way it goes in. I’ve always been sideways but my other half thinks this is weird and wrong. Obviously the template works either way.

One person said: ‘My life changed when I started putting the bread in sideways.’

Another added: ‘I’ve definitely used a toaster in the past where the bread wouldn’t fit in sideways!’
