Finally, A Smart Toaster

Posted in Kitchen Gadgets by Darrin Olson on July 7th, 2014

Dualit ToasterNothing worse than burning your toast first thing in the morning. One, it’s just annoying. Two, that smell can linger all day long.

Introducing a smarter toaster by Dualit. This toaster has patented Climate Sensing Toasting Cycle technology. What that means is it monitors the temperature of the toaster and what is being toasted so it can compensate for the correct toasting time. It also has a “peek and pop” function which allows you to look at the toast without having to reset the timer.

Other benefits to this toaster are a defrost setting and a bagels and buns settings that toasts one side while it only warms the other side. It comes with a removable crumb tray and a feature that allows you to lift the toasted items higher. So if you have something small in the toaster it is …

Darth Vader toasterIn 2008, we did an article about a Darth Vader toaster that was considered a must have for Star Wars junkies. Well, the toaster just got an upgrade.  The new version is shaped just like the Dark Lord’s helmet and is the ultimate addition to your kitchen counter.  The toaster burns the Star Wars logo on one side and the image of Darth Vader on the other.

This new toaster is coming out in July and can be pre-ordered from Bigbadtoystore.com to have proudly displayed on your kitchen counter for a mere $44.99.

The Breville Radio Toaster

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2011

Your music is toast. Raise a (slice of) toast to your favorite song. This gadget combines two great things, toast and a radio. UK kitchen appliance manufacturer Breville has merged them into one device, the Breville VTT296 2 Slice Radio Toaster. It sports a retro matt black/silver finish and silver circular speaker. The radio controls sit under the speaker, on either side of the illuminated digital display.

It can store up to ten radio stations and comes with an antenna. You can also listen to music from an external MP3 player by using an auxiliary input jack. On the toaster side, it features adjustable twin toasting slots, a variable browning control, an extra high lift which ensures safe fingers, a defrost button which automatically lengthens the toasting time for frozen slices and a reheat mode.

Xbox 360 Toaster

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 2nd, 2011

I’ve always wanted to rip the guts out of a four-slice toaster and replace them with an Xbox 360. Luckily for me, now I don’t have to do it as someone else has done it for me. You may not be able to enjoy breakfast anymore with this mod, but you’ll be able to play CoD: Black Ops in the kitchen.

It is the work of modder ncaruso11, aka (akatheguy2) and it is dubbed the XToaster360. Best kitchen appliance ever. COD is way better than toast anyway.

Space Invaders toaster

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2010

We love us some Space Invaders around here and this Space Invaders toaster is pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves. It was designed by Chris Naylor, a student designer in London.

This Space Invaders toaster toasts individual invaders into your bread so you can zap them with butter or jam and eat them up. Should this toaster ever go into production, we would buy it in a heartbeat.

Portable Toaster makes burning your hand easy

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2009

Portable Toaster makes burning your hand easyAs far as innovative toasters go, I’ll stick with the VHS toaster over this butter-knife type deal. At least with that one I wont accidentally toast my hand in the morning.

It’s a design concept by Kim Been that looks like a knife but is really a handheld toaster. All you need to do is run it across the bread until it’s toasted to your liking. An animated graphic shows you how you are doing, which your you should be able to see with your own eyes.

VHS Toaster wins toaster format war against Bagelmax

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2009

VHS Toaster wins toaster format war against BagelmaxOkay. Not really. But that’s how a format war would play out with this VHS toaster. It may look like a typical Daewoo VCR, but this one takes slices of bread instead of VHS tapes.

It actually toasts the letters VHS onto the toast. It only gets better if someone makes one that toasts movie scenes onto your bread. When your VCR is toast, then by all means let it make toast. Video below.

Trebuchet Toaster launches bread across the room

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Trebuchet Toaster flings your bread across the roomThis toaster is part of Ivo Vos’s ‘Brunch’ collection. It’s a toast catapult or trebuchet. One cool feature is that it lets you calibrate the force and angle of your toast’s trajectory. Presumably so that you can have a plate all set up in the right place. It’s one of many prototypes for kitchen equipment from the Dutch designer.

It’s all about precision. In fact, the project is intended to be a statement on perfection, precision, and order. But the important thing is this: This toaster launches your damn toast. And that’s awesome. I’m guessing we won’t see it come to market for awhile, which is a shame. Toasters were meant to function in such ways.

Darth Vader toaster brands your bread with the dark side

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on November 6th, 2008

Darth Vader toaster brands your bread with the dark sideI’m not sure which is more awesome, this Vader toaster or the old Cylon toaster. Hey, that’s why bread has two sides. Start your day with a breakfast branded with the image of the dark side’s lead spokesperson. As Luke would say, “There’s still good in him, I taste it.” This toaster will cost you $55 and you’ll be cleaning up Salacious Crumbs. How’s that for a bad nerd joke?

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your bread

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 11th, 2008

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your breadWhen you think about it, it’s kind of weird that toast is such a hugely popular food. I mean it’s basically burnt bread that’s ready to crumble in your hands. What’s weirder are all the new ways we’ve found to enjoy toast. We can even make it in our PC’s and decorate it with a frakken cylon. The Scan Toaster printer concept takes it all a step further, from designer Sung Bae Chang.

Details are a bit thin, but it connects to the internet via USB and can print images or text on bread using a flexible “module” unit heated by a wire. What it means is that you could read the news on the very breakfast that you eat. The Scan Toaster concept was a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design Lab competition. Sadly, it may be awhile before it hits the kitchen.

Drive bay toaster puts a toaster in your PC

Drive bay toaster puts a toaster in your PC
It’s a real pain getting up from your computer and walking to the kitchen to get your favorite snack, toast. You would think that cylon toaster you bought would motivate you. If only you had a way to make toast with your computer.

Wait a minute. You’ve got that spare drive bay that you’ve never used. Meet the CrazyPC 5.25 Bay Toaster, a toaster that fits in a standard 5.25-inch drive bay, and even includes software for adjusting the heat and time. Just insert the bread like a doughy CD and wait. Hot fresh toast is served. I’m not sure how it handles the crumbs. If you’ve ever cleaned out your toaster you know that crumbs will collect on the bottom. Only $29.99.

Computer gets jammed in a toaster, becomes compu-toaster

Computer gets jammed in a toaster, becomes compu-toaster
Why anyone would want to put a computer inside of a toaster is beyond me.(As if I never thought about it). And the creator didn’t just stuff a computer into some modern plastic toaster, instead he went the full distance and jammed it in a vintage chrome toaster. And not a 2 slice job, but 4 slice.

The only downside is that one wants it to still make toast, maybe with the computer’s excess heat, but alas it has no toasting abilities. It does have a 3600 MHz processor, 2.5 inch hard drive, DVD-rom drive, and a router inside. It’s what the PC may have looked like in the 1950′s…If toast never existed.

Toaster makes even your buns toasty, not a Hamster sauna

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2008

Toaster makes even your buns toasty, not a Hamster sauna
This toaster is different. The cage on top spins so that your buns can get perfectly toasted on all sides. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that this would be the perfect spa type accessory for your hamster. That tubby furball could stand to lose a few pounds right? Wrong. It would kill him. It’s for toast, it’s not a Richard Simmons hamster treadmill, though I hear that’s available too.

Now that we have that out of the way, this toaster even has a few heating drawers that will keep slices of toast crisp and warm. Hopefully it’s available in more colors. I’d like to see it in chrome, while I watch my buns battle it out in a steel cage match to the death.

What the frak: Battlestar Galactica Cylon toaster
This is a dream come true friends, cuz I’ve been wanting to toast some frakin Cylons real bad. Who’s with me? If you also love you some buttery toast, I know you’ve just wet your geek underoos.

Yes, believe your eyes, this is a limited edition Battlestar Galactica toaster that will put a Cylon smack in the middle of white bread. The price is $65 and you’re gonna wanna stock up on the bread so you can do it again and again.

DT08 Slide Toaster looks like a toast MRI machine

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2008

DT08 Slide Toaster looks like a toast MRI machine
We’ve seen plenty of examples of toasters here at the Brick. Could be that we love toast. Could be that toast is a bloggers best friend as it symbolizes crisp content and is all buttery and good.

Whatever the reason, we think this one looks like a toast MRI machine that will check it’s crust for tumors and the like. As far as toasters go, it actually looks futuristic. And when you can watch the process it’s just plain fun for the easily entertained. It’s a concept design from Daniel Thomas. I don’ know if he’s any relation to the English muffin guy, but it’s obviously is in the blood somewhere.
