Lever on toaster will not stay down
For what it might cost to fix it buy a better brand of toaster for about 10% of the cost of this horrible brand.
You'll notice their new ones are "smart" toasters with NO LEVER. You push a button and the electronics takes care of the rest (and blow up quickly.)
$15 to $25 at Walmart.. instead of $100 to $200.

Cooking a whole chuck roast in a roaster oven. I will be feeding 20 people. Would like to cook low and slow. Temp and time is the question and how do I figure out the raw poundage per person.
I am not an expert cook or an expert caterer but I want to express the opinion you are facing a number of variables that need addressing before your main question can be answered.
The first possible problem is the source of the meat - a supermarket roasting joint can shrink by 50% during cooking due to it being "doctored" to keep it bright and moist-looking for display. Much less shrinkage can be expected from well-hung meat from an independent butcher, unwrapped with a dark and dry appearance and a medium amount of fat.
Another problem is the type of meal. If it is to be to a good hotel standard and the meat finely carved for presentation a larger percentage will not be suitable to be plated than if the meal is to be more rustic.
The appetites of the diners is another consideration. Older people tend to eat less meat and women also tend to eat less meat than men. The ideal portion size for a main meal is reckoned to be about the size of an older mobile phone...
Choose the phone and arrange a phone-sized portion of cooked meat from the deli and weigh it. Multiply by the number of diners, add a percentage for wastage, second helpings and accidental guests and then double the result to give a fairly realistic raw poundage.

NOREMENDE BREADMAKER PROBLEM
When you say "trips the electric" does that mean it trips the breaker in your electric panel? If so, then one of the first things i would try is to plug your breadmaker into a another plugin in a different room because in most houses each room is on a separate circuit for overload protection. Do it just to see if it trips another relay. The usual breaker is about 20 amps so your breadmaker should not trip with that load. If it does not then you can suspect the breaker. They are easily replaceable. Do you have other other appliances on at the same time? Turn them off. Also breakers as they age may not handle as much load. By the way if you live in a double wide then your electric circuit may include more that room room which means it might be easier to overload the circuit. I found that out personally.
