A man who uses his 72-year-old toaster every day said he was embracing the spirit of the wartime generation.
Jimmy James, from Stanwick, in Northamptonshire, said the toaster was manufactured in December 1949 and given to his parents as a wedding present.
The 69-year-old said it only needed repairing once every six or seven years.
Mr James said: “I was brought up by the wartime generation and encouraged to repair things and not throw them away.”
He inherited the Morphy Richards pop-up toaster after his father’s death in 1993.
The machine generally needs repairing “once every six or seven years”, he said.
