12-01-2010 Clearly Worth a Toast!

No need to fear anymore, toast perfectionists, for your bread will never be too white, too brown, or too burnt again – UK design team, Inventables, have found a solution.

Put the bread in between the

slice cook until it’s the perfect colour, and eject. Simple and easy. Yet what’s so convenient about Inventables’ Transparent Toaster is it’s also for those who are too busy (or too impatient!) to watch their bread slowly turn to the
optimal shade... the appliance also has a conventional timer dial. Sorted.

  • I cannot believe this hasn\'t been thought of before? Finally, I\'ll never have to smell (or eat!) burnt toast again. Hopefull they\'ll be available in Australia ASAP.

  • Shame it only fits one piece! I usually eat four pieces of toast just in the morning!

  • Looks extra posh! I\'m sure they will design one for 2 slices or sanwiches, as well!

  • I have a personal \'saying\'.. .. Why buy one when you can buy two for twice the price. Problem solved Warwick. Well... sort of... cut the carbs!

  • Found your blog by accident for the 2nd time today so I imagined I\'d take a nearer appear. I\'ve just began making my own blog and modeling it after what you may have done. I hope mine is going to be as effective as yours.
