The toaster is beautiful. And functional. It makes my life just a bit easier, and I appreciate that.

Tim communicated well during the whole process. I got before/during/after photos of my toaster. Just keep in mind that it all takes time. It's not an online it in person store. Good things come to those who wait. It's a buy it for life toaster, and you won't get that anywhere else.

Attention to detail makes all the difference. If you have any interest in owning a piece of toaster history, Tim is the right man for the job. We actually own two T-20 toasters and you can tell the difference between them from across the room. Tim's is polished, clean and has a beautiful cord.

Tim did an excellent job on my T20A toaster restoration. Could not be happier with the quality of his work. He stayed in contact with us throughout the process to let us know the status and progress. Recommend Tim's Toaster restoration to anyone who has an old Sunbeam they want fixed or fully restored.

If you are on the fence, thinking about whether or not to use Tim's Toasters restoration service, you should absolutely do so! Tim's services are beyond the scope of anything I have ever experienced in the realm of restorations. His experience and insight is better than anything I could have done, simply because he has seen it all. When my T20-B arrived, I was speechless to behold the gleaming jewel that now adorns my countertop. I am certain that it looks and performs better than it ever had in 1955! This is not a rapid process because Tim has actual real life events to attend as well as his side toaster gig. But, hey! Toasters are not a life and death situation (unless a bathtub is involved), so I was fine waiting in the queue. It was totally worth it!

Tim is the absolute best at toaster restoration. He just finished my T-20B and it is magnificent!! Couldn't be more pleased with the job he did and the attention to detail that is put into his work. I highly recommend Tim for your toaster restoration job!! 🙂

Tim is a delightful person and proud of his craft. In a sea of products and services intended only to separate you from your money without actually making your life any better off, his Sunbeam repair and restoration service was refreshingly earnest and human! It's clear he loves what he does for the sake of it. He does not take for granted his strong position in a fairly niche market; he earned and maintains it!

What made my experience with Tim Wilson extraordinary? How shall I count the ways?

Tim treated me like a dear friend, with unexpected kindness, respect and sincerity!

He cared enough to provide detailed accounts of his progress with my late parent's Sunbeam to ensure I was fully informed- complete with photos from every conceivable angle!!

I learned that Tim is very busy with his "real" (printing business) job, as the chairperson of the Board of Trustees at the church he has attended his entire life First UMC of London and that he visits the church almost daily to monitor the final stages of the masonry and stained-glass window restoration. Yet he made time for me- and was it ever worth the wait!!!

Because the finished product is one gorgeous work of art that I enjoy looking at every day. Not to mention having perfect toast that alluded me (and my parents) for decades!!!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Tim!!!!! You are an artist, craftsman and one incredible human being!!!!!

This was such a great surprise to receive as a Christmas gift!
My toaster looks better than expected and I can tell that it was very well cared for during the restoration process.
The box, the instructions, photos, EVERYTHING is top of the line!!
If this is something you are considering, I highly recommend Tim's Toasters.

Sent my toaster to Mr Tim for repair. Came back looking better than new and working perfectly. Great communications and repair skills. Can't thank you enough.

Thank you!!!

Time restored our 1953 sunbeam T-20 toaster and we absolutely love it. Everything works beautifully and the toast comes out perfect. This toaster belonged to my husbands grandmother back in the 50’s and we hope our kids will enjoy it one day to. Thank you time for all your hard work.

After spending hours trying (and failing) to repair a T-20B that has been in my family for decades, I reached out to Tim for help. I’m so glad I did because he got back with me quickly and walked me through a couple of tests that lead to a successful repair. Thank you so much for your kindness! I was really surprised by the willingness to help, and the way you treated me like a close friend. Grateful for a shining example of generosity. My mother will be very excited to have her beloved toaster back this Christmas!

If I could give 6 stars I would. From start to finish this experience was top notch. The care in selecting the right unit, the diligence in communication, and the final product are outstanding -- truly a level of service that seems to be absent from most interactions since these toasters were new. Thank you so much!

Tim reecently restored my family's Sunbeam T-20B. Throughout the process, he kept me informed about whrere he was at with the restoration. This is something I truly appreciated. What I appreciate even more is Tim's kindness, his professionalism, and the sheer love he puts into repairing these amazing machines. He has a gift not just for repairing them, but for letting you know that he values you as a customer and as a human being: I'd told Tim that this Sunbeam was my father's T20B and that he'd loved it. When Tim sent the toaster back to me, he printed a special note to honor my father on the side of the box. I have made a friend whose friendship I will always cherish.

Tim's restoration of our Sunbeam toaster was fantastic! The toaster is gorgeous, safe, grounded, and works exactly as designed.

Tim's communication was excellent, clear, timely, thorough, and kind. He kept me updated on every step and on his timeline.

Thank you again, Tim! I so appreciate you sharing your expertise. You are conscientious in word and deed. My family and I thank you!

He's like a Sunbeam Radiant Control Toaster whisperer. I had mistakenly self-diagnosed a faulty thermostat in my unit and shipped it to Tim for replacement. He found that the thermostat blade was in perfect shape, cleaned and adjusted the contacts (the actual problem) and sent it back to me - at no charge! He even spent time with me on the phone walking me through the final adjustment and calibration so it would toast just right.

Happily toasting in Toronto.

My husband reached out to Tim to purchase and restore a Sunbeam toaster reminiscent of his childhood. His brother has his parent's original Sunbeam toaster, and Hubby wanted one too. Tim bought and restored a Sunbeam T-20-B with original manufacture date of 11/8/54. This toaster is beautiful and functional! It looks brand new; you'd never know it is almost 69 years old! Tim does amazing work and kept us well informed throughout the process. When the toaster arrived, it was superbly packaged to ensure no damage occurred during the shipping process. Oh yeah, and it makes perfect toast! Thanks Tim!!

The work is magnificent at a reasonable price! It is amazing that a toaster can be so many different things, a work of art, a connection to the past, a treasure box of memories, and ... a toaster... of unique design and function. Tim's work takes time; the wait is worth it! Have patience, and you will be greatly rewarded! If you get a chance to engage in an email conversation with Tim, take it! He's quite an interesting fellow - hard-working and deeply involved in his community. Thanks, Tim - to you and your Team for the revitalization of my T-20B!

Tim is truly an Artisan Technician operating at the top of his game.

These restorations are truly the Ferrari's of the toaster world and are really works of Art.

In time, these toasters he has restored will be worth thousands of dollars as true collector items, so buy them while you can, there are only so many of these old world beauties left.

I found Tim to be a polite, responsive, knowledgeable, and honest businessman. My model T-35-1 was expertly packaged, looks brand new, and works like a dream. These toasters weren't cheap when Sunbeam first started making them, and Tim's restored units aren't cheap today. However, I feel they're worth every penny and expect to get a lifetime of use out of mine.
