Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible black crisp?

BECAUSE THE PERSON COOKING PROBABLY DOSENT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING

Good point. But that's when toast tastes best. Might also be useful for frozen bread.

@8boi, please don't talk in all CAPS. On the internet that is usually considered rude.

I've always wondered about toasters though. I don't know why there's the option to completely nuke bread.

Kickbacks from the big bread.

For testing smoke detectors.

And, bread charcoal is good for you.

Actually, different breads, and different pieces have different brown and burn points. The same setting that’ll brown one piece may not brown a larger piece, or may blacken a smaller or thinner slice.

I love Zaku’s answer!! My smoke detector is working just fine!! ha ha!! I don’t change the setting on my toaster tho. I prefer to keep it on a light setting, and if it’s not done enough, I put it back in.. but that’s just me.
