Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Would we feel as if we were getting ripped off if the only toasters cost 100€, and there were no 30€  (built-to-break) toasters there to compare them to?

split the difference...the €50 toaster that lasts 20 years, (heck why not 50 or 100?) is made of recyclable materials, and whose production company hasn't had a sheaf of lawsuits complaining the thing caught fire and burned down the teepee.

oh yes and for those spoilt, fussy folks, that it toasted both sides!

at once...
