It looks like it only toasts a slice at a time, unless I missed something.

Re: non-electric toaster

I don't mind one slice at a time if it's a well done slice I did notice with the rusty one that sometimes it took FOREVER. But forever may be better than $18.

Re: non-electric toaster

If your old toasters go rusty.. no worries. Some steel wool or a wire brush will fix that. And it's good for another season.
In a bind I use a wire coat hanger. Once the varnish is burnt off it's as good as any you can buy. And faster.

Re: non-electric toaster

I know the topic is a bit old but...

I've used the standard Coghlan or Coleman toasters over fires and stoves forever, but I've never been crazy about the results... and they always rust on the bottom.

What I found recently, and it's still a bit pricey, is this square 2 slice toaster: http://www.amazon.com/Grill-Stove-To...sim_sbs_misc_6

You need to do a bit of flipping and rotating, but like the results, and it's much easier to store (I hated fussing with the folding wires on the others). I figure it's worth the extra 6 or 7 dollars to get that hassle free, perfect toast in the morning.

Re: non-electric toaster

Looks like a good choice, have you tried it out to see ho it works.
All the mild steel ones will rust. Maybe if there stored in a ziploc it will keep out the humidity and prevent surface rust. every summer we use ours it is rusty on the bottom. But we just store ours in the original box.

Re: non-electric toaster

I used one of those Camp-A-Toasters before, and they do work fairly good. I still prefer the Coghlan one though, it is almost as fast and makes 5 lices (in fact for efficiency you need a 5th slice), and stores way smaller.

That said, we rarely make toast. Maybe a couple times a year.

I have one and all I've ever been able to do with it is make croutons. Takes forever and just dries the bread. I must be doing something wrong.

Absolutely! Makes great toast.
