RIP toaster oven

My parents received this GE toaster oven as a wedding shower gift 40 years ago. Over the years it had become unreliable to stop toasting, but worked fine otherwise so I inherited it. Whenever you did not rely on it, it would always pop open. As soon as you stopped paying attention or left the room is when you'd burn things. ;) It had still been working fine through last Wednesday, but as of yesterday it won't heat on any setting, so I think it has finally given up the ghost. Thanks for such a lifetime of service!

Beloved toaster oven, now at rest after 40 long years of excellent service

Now I'm off to start shopping for a replacement toaster oven, but I'm sure they don't make 'em like they used to...this one was older than me!
