In search of a decent toaster that doesn't cost an arm & leg, b/c I'm ready to blow mine up...

I bought a Hamilton Beach toaster a few months ago, and it's been acting up lately in a way that pisses me off to no end. It toasts unevenly, meaning only parts of the outside -- so you end up throwing it in the other slot.... only for the bread to end up burnt. Unevenly.

I watched how the elements heat up, and it looks as if the inside elements are not nearly as hot as the ones on the outside (it has two slots).

I get very angry at inanimate objects, and would like to spare my dear man another hissy fit.

Can anyone recommend a toaster they love/like that doesn't break the bank?

Thanks.
