Since launching my new business in July 2019 and after making thousands of Toaster Huggee® toaster covers, I learned a few things about toasters.
First and Foremost
There’s a plethora of different toasters! Though I took the time to research toasters sold in several retail locations, there were a slew of others I knew nothing about.
In 2018 in United States alone there were 17.4 million toaster sold! Therefore, you can imagine this number represented a good number of toaster brands, types, materials, and sizes.
Materials in Toasters: Metal & Other Stuff
Today, manufactures are using aluminum for most metal toasters, and die-cast metal for others. While aluminum has magnetic properties, die-cast metal does not. Similar to polypropylene, which is a hard plastic also used to manufacture toasters, has no magnetic properties; therefore, the Toaster Huggee® cannot adhere aka “hug the sides”. Bummer!!! However if you do have a non-magnetic toaster reach out to me personally, I do have a solutions for you!
TOASTERS! – Variety is the Spice of Life!

Let’s not get into the different colors, sizes, and styles. Look at it this way, toaster manufactures aim to please, so there is definitely a toaster with your name on it!
