    Default Camp toaster

    Charlielyn's latest blog entry reminded me of something I've been meaning to ask for a while. Does anyone know if camp toasters are available in the DR? I mean those square metal plates with a handle and a grill that you place on a stove top to toast bread. I'll post a photo if necessary. Mine is falling to bits and I need to replace it.

    Gonzales have them in POP, I am sure you can find them in Santo Domingo as well. Otherwise IŽll send you one on CaribeTours.

    Wow - I've looked in many kitchen departments in ferreterias, supermarkets and household goods shops here and never, ever seen one.
    The ones that are just a plancha are easy to find, but not the ones with the metal grill over it. That's what I'm after. Is that what you mean?

    Never saw that in Santo Domingo, I am not familiar with camping stuff tho. Did you see in the camping section of stores like Americana or Price Smart?

    My camp toaster has a round base with 4 sides that pop up and hook on to each other. 4 slices of bread can be toasted at a time. Flip them over to toast the other side. I'll put a photo on today's blog.

    I looked in the camping shop at Americana -I was convinced they would have it but they didn't, and didn't know what I was talking about! I haven't been to Price Smart for a couple of years and our membership has lapsed, but I could ask someone I know here who is a regular.

    Mine is a camp toaster, even though it's not the same as Charlielyn's - I inherited it from a departing expat friend about six years ago.

    I contacted the Price Smart cardholder and a visit has been scheduled. I'll report back soon.
