On the way to my dance lesson last night, I stopped briefly at an applicance store there. I bought the last Braun MultiToast HT-550 they had in stock. In fact, it was the one on display, so I got it for onlt 420 SEK instead of 500. I've been looking around for this particular toaster but had not been able to find a retailer in Sweden that carried it; so I was glad to find it. That I found it without making a special trip was even better.
I've already toasted a few slices of bread in the new toaster, and I can confirm that it works well. Plus, it matches my black Braun hot water pot.
