>>7295389 I also have a thrift store toaster. Mine is seriously vintange, with mica plates inside it, and bakelite knobs and everything. I actually had to replace the cord because it still had it's original asbestos-wrapped cord on it.
ANYWAY. Are you handy with tools? Because the best way to clean it is to unscrew the cover, take it off, and go at the insides with some cotton swabs and either rubbing alcohol or vinegar and water. (obviously, with it UNPLUGGED, but hopefully you already knew that). Make sure it's dry, and plug it in, without any bread in it, and run the toaster over and over until you're sure there's no smell. If there's STILL smell after that, then you just bought a stinky toaster, friend. Really, most electric appliances and electronics can be fixed just by taking them apart, cleaning them, and putting them back together. Unless there's a specific thing broken, of course.
