LONDON, Jan. 29 (UPI) — An elderly couple say their 58-year-old toaster, which they still use, is the oldest in Britain.

Joan and Fred Horley got their chrome-plated Morphy Richards toaster as a wedding gift in 1953, the Mirror reported.

The toaster, which cost $31 then, is believed to be the oldest working model in Britain.

“It’s still as good as new,” Fred Horley, 80, told the Mirror.
