Goofs: Factual errors: Toast is seen automatically popping out of a Dualit toaster with such force that the toast actually leaves the toaster. The Dualit toaster (made in England) does not automatically pop up toast but rather signals that the toast is done with a bell and the toast stays in the toaster keeping warm until raised with a manual lever.
