Hello all! After a not-so-brief hiatus due to forgetting my damned login information, I'm back with a new toy!

I've been trying to outfit the kitchen in my apartment with all (or at least mostly!) vintage appliances. When I saw this Wards toaster oven on eBay still sealed in its original box, I couldn't pass it up! The heating elements are like nothing I've seen before.....four glass tubes with coils inside them. I was expecting solid rods, like in a normal electric oven or modern toaster oven.

What vintage would this be? I'm assuming late 70s/early 80s. Who made it for Wards?

My GE (Black & Decker?) unit has that type of element.

Beware of PS Toasters, and Ovens

Procter Silex, was notoriously known for discoloring, and melting the facia, around the heat, and toaster controls. At one point they were recalled, for that reason. Consumer Reports, always dinked Proters toasters, and toaster ovens for this. On the toaster ovens, the color control guide, with the color markings would always melt. Enjoy it, but I would suggest not leaving it plugged in, when not in use. Love those vintage smalls!
