A hot stove is important. I find putting that 5th slice on top helps hold the heat in. We never have the bread dried out. We usually use a light rye, and find it works great.

I eat bacon and eggs without toast all the time. I still have 15-20 extra pounds I am working on getting rid of, so have cut back on the carbs. Bacon now, that would be a tough one to give up.

Same one we use.

If you're making toast for a group with one of these (or two of these), a nifty accessory is a $3 styrofoam tortilla warmer dish. We got ours at Smart and Final, a CA grocery type outlet. Keeps pancakes hot, too.

I'm always a but amazed that more campers/trailer owners aren't aware of this miracle gadget .

We have 2, the first from Colman must be some 15-20 years old and is a perminate fixture in our tent camping kit. Every time we are camping with others it becomes a great point of conversation. When we brought 7th Heaven home one of the first items we added was our new toaster

We also use ours for bagels too, and yes a low heat is a must to get the inside warm too
