Another factor is are you using the toaster from cold or has a couple of slices popped out recently? This alone can result in a woefully under toasted slice or equally a burnt husk.
Are you a toaster salesman?

I'll settle for a scenario where the slice of bread fits in the toaster

Shouldn’t you buy bread that fits your toaster rather than expecting your toaster to adapt size to fit your bread?

I should have taken a slice of bread with me when I went toaster shopping instead of naively expecting toaster makers to know how big slices of bread are

So complex that it’s hardly worth the trouble. That’s why I prefer a nice bit of hot crumpet in the morning.

The independent consider slot size the first consideration when buying a toaster. A bit like buying a slim fit shirt if you are carrying a few lockdown pounds won’t work well.

I think it's more like average adult human purchases clothes advertised as suitable for average adult humans only to discover they were designed for wcb.

kitchen bins. We've got a double bin, left hand side for usual crap, right for recycling. Pedal operated. A couple of months ago, the flimsy plastic "eye" on the inside of the lid snapped off (this is the part that the metal rod that shoots upwards when you tread on the pedal is hooked in to). So now lid doesn't open with the pedal and the only other way to open it is to hook a finger nail under the lid. Yesterday, the right hand one went the same way. Why are things so badly made these days?

I've had a leak on the boundary of my drive for about 3 months. In that time Thames Water have told me that the leak is there side, dug up the isolation Valve, then told me it was my side, turned up again a few weeks later to dig a whole on my side only to stop halfway through because the leak was from their valve, turned up a few weeks after that, dug up their valve, replaced it and refilled the hole only to discover the leak was on my side.

They're here again today, digging up my drive to repair it. I've no water in the house, the kids have emptied all the cisterns, and i need a massive shit.

I personally still miss toasting a nice chunk of bread on a long-handled fork in front of an open fire, with plenty of butter.

I have a knife.
Cunningly, it has the ability to cut bits off that get in the way
Thay way, you also have a tasty piece of uncooked toast to nibble on whilst waiting.

I can only assume you design toasters for a living

Uncooked toast? Is that called bread?

I think that's what Aldershot's toaster does.
