We can all agree that one of our favorite things every morning is a couple of slices of delicious bread, buttered and toasted, with a cup of your favorite coffee on the side.
Now could you imagine having the ability to indulge in this simple pleasure even when you’re sitting in your campervan or tent looking at the sea or sunrise? That’s exactly what today’s GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Steel Toaster allows you to do regardless of where you are around the world.
Join me below as we review and decide whether the GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Steel Toaster is worth the hype it has been receiving among travelers.
GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Steel Toaster Review
I was blown away by this product’s unique selling proposition straight out of the box. GSI Outdoors (the unit’s manufacturer) offers a lifetime promise to everyone who acquire this masterpiece. If the unit experiences any manufacturing defects, they will either fix or replace it for you at no extra cost whatsoever.
If that promise doesn’t prove that this appliance is one of the best durable toasters in the market today, I do not know what does. That also explains why I saw people online claiming they have used this exact toaster model for more than a decade.
It is also a highly reliable product as it can be used for both outdoor and indoor toasting. For those days when you’re not traveling but are craving that outdoor taste that only a camping toaster can achieve, do not hesitate to whip out your GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Steel Toaster and have your way.
What’s more? It can toast about 2 bread slices at a time, so it is a great option even if you are going camping with someone. For instance, during my test session, we were able to whip out more than 50 toasties in less than 30 minutes, thanks to its fast cooking speed and ability to maintain its consistency regardless of repeated use.
Unlike its foldable counterparts, this unit isn’t quite easy to pack. I did find a way around this, however. While hiking, instead of placing the tool inside your camping bag, you can simply tie it to the outside of the bag and keep moving.
Another thing worth noting is the ability to deliver perfectly, uniformly, and evenly toasted slices. This wasn’t something I thought I could achieve with a stovetop toaster, but this unit proved me wrong. Basically, regardless of the time you spend in the wilderness, you can rest assured you won’t miss your 2-slice toaster back at home.
