There’s no excuse not to get creative with your toast. Not when you can buy a German skull toaster (a VIP option is available for those who require an ego boost to accompany their bacon and egg) or the must-have best seller that burns an image of Hello Kitty into your bread. Rather that than your brain, one supposes.
This collection of cool toasters is enough to inspire you to rush out to your local supermarket and clear the shelves of Wonder White. We are especially intrigued by the Scan Toaster, which is linked to PC and can imprint your bread with everything from downloaded patterns to the morning’s headlines. The idea was a winner in a competition held by Electrolux; there are no plans to manufacture it as yet, thus sparing purchasers from the trauma of having to cover up the morning news with butter and jam.
There’s even a toaster teapot, although, somewhat disappointingly, it turns out not to be a toaster/kettle combo, but a teapot shaped like a toaster. If, however, you feel that joy is a Marmite teapot, then this English eccentric teapot site is for you.
