Summer is here.  You need a Camp-A-Toaster.  

Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen often, but every delightful once in a while the cheapest, most basic and primitive approach works best. So it is with the Camp-A-Toaster, a stovetop toaster manufactured in Rhode Island—unchanged—since 1963 . If you fancy lightly charred sourdough in the style good restaurants serve it up on their charcuterie boards, this is the single best way to turn that out at home. If you like your toast to be of maximum textural contrast—ultra-crisp on the outside, but just warmed through and still moist within—this is your best and most affordable ticket to domestic contentment. External heat source required.  Gas hob or campfire not included.
