    DS can eat 4 slices of toast for breakfast without even blinking but switches to crumpets sometimes and adjusts the dial but never adjusts it back til he uses it again, and i never really check before putting bread in (mostly from the freezer so it's not a huge issue but sometimes i end up with charcoal and it's not my preferred level of re-cooked bread). DD won't eat toast at all, just what she calls 'slightly warm bread' which is not even waiting for setting 1 to finish and pop up.

    So today's question is where on the toast spectrum does your ideal toast sit?

    Or i found this paint chart kind of colour name version which i think is funny.

    Mine's somewhere between Chestnut Slice and Buttery Khaki lol

    And if you don't eat bread, do you own a toaster?

    Ditto! :-) I very rarely actually eat toast though, mainly just when we have BLTs. And it's wheat bread, so it looks darker than the graphic. LOL Since I gave up pop-tarts ages ago, I rarely use the toaster at all. It gets used more by other family members for sandwich rolls, English muffins (which I guess is similar to a crumpet?), bagels, etc. than it does for regular toast.

    I like my toast between 4 and 5, more like 5 if I had to pick one.
    And "Chestnut Slice" looks perfect to me!
    I only toast bread a couple times a month though, usually for avocado toast.

    Very rarely eat toast on its own especially for breakfast but my choice would be around 4 or Buttery Kahki I'd say....basically just toasted but not too dark

    General concensus is between 4 and 5, lol. Our toaster is terrible and burns toast daily. I literally have to watch it like a hawk and constantly pop it out before it turns to cinders. It goes from 2 to 7 in a heartbeat. And then I get annoyed. Going to get a new one for black friday I believe. Scraping toast is the worst.

    Lol I know! First World problem but it's a close second to cleaning the sink out after scraping the matte black toast to me

    Another between 4 and 5. If 5 didn't have the black top edge, it would be perfect.

    Having not eaten toast for over 3 years, it is such a treat to me now. I've been eating a lot of ham salad sandwiches during the hotter weather and putting it on toast is perfection.

    I don't eat a lot of bread but occasionally will have toast with peanut butter or with margarine and fried egg overtop. I like a bit crispy so 5 is perfect for me.

    It really depends on what type of bread. 3/4 for sourdough, 4 for sure for wheat/grain & maybe even 5 for raisin bread (my fave with butter &honey!!) ;) Mmmm now I'm hungry for toast! This one is my fave!!!

    Same here, but leaning more towards Chestnut Slice because I do like the crust a little more brown.
    I just got an air fryer/toaster oven combo, so I ditched the regular toaster.

    Yum! I love cinnamon raisin bread!!

    Between a 4 and a 5, depending on what I'm eating. Like the 12 grain/15 grain bread, I like it more like a 5 when I'm having it with peanut butter and banana. But for a BLT, I lean more towards a 4.

    4 or 5.
    Chestnut slice is basically the one I would choose but the top left edge is a touch burnt for me.
    Hubby toasts his bread and then waits for it to cool. Whereas I add the butter while it is still hot to make it all melty.

    I prefer between a 4 and a 5 too. We go in spurts here making toast. I also like bagels and sometime English Muffins with butter and a little cherry jam. I always check the dial before I put my bread in the toaster too... I've been burned too many times in the past when I forgot to check (pun intended) :giggle

    My toast has to be number 5 or 6, but my son is forever adjusting the dial on the toaster. His toast is like warm bread at number 2 or 3 YUK

    I used to go for an 8 on the toast spectrum (I loved burnt toast, I have no idea why...), but nowadays 4 looks just about right to me.

    I love buttered toast with strawberry or raspberry jam, and a few slices of cheddar on the side. I also love baked beans on toast, with a few slices of cheddar on the side.

    5 or buttery khaki! 1- 3 are in the "why bother toasting" category to me.
