Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and for many, a refreshing breakfast makes the perfect setting for entering into a busy day full of commitments and deadlines. A toaster is an integral part of every breakfast setting and most houses cannot do without one. While we all have simple toasters that can simply toast a bread for our everyday needs, wouldn’t it be an interesting addition if we could get hold of innovative toasters that can make each morning a great deal more exciting while we conserve energy for the day?
Take a look at seven of the best toaster designs available as choice.
1. Roller toaster
An innovative toaster design that won the Red Dot Award of 2006, this toaster created by Jaren Goh from Singapore is a small gadget that can fit into a small and compact kitchen easily. An ideal toaster for a small space, all you need to do is to slide the bread through a small space from one side and the toast emerges toasted and crisp through the other end. As the toaster is still in the experimental stage, it is not clear as to how the bread slides through and the correct mechanism for using it. From the first look of the gadget, it surely looks promising.
2. Toaster by Shay Carmon
Shay Carmon is an Israeli industrial designer who created a toaster, which can be used for reviving old bread pieces that you thought of throwing it away. Shaped like a defibrillator, this innovative design has two slots for keeping two slices of bread and several heat settings that can be adjusted by sliding the sliding bar at the edge of the toaster to get the desired dryness. So next time you find some old bread that you would like to revive, try the Shay Carmon toaster for a change and enjoy the refreshingly toasted smell wafting through the air.
3. Scan toaster
Designed by Sung Bae Chang, the scan toaster is a wonderful design that can cater to the ultimate technology freak. The gadget is designed in such a way that it can be connected to the internet using a USB cable and can print text as well as images on the bread using a unit which is heated by the connected wire. The flexible module can move in a 30 degree angle in a vertical position and burn the image or the text on the bread. A wonderful way to start your day by browsing through your mails while your breakfast gets toasted in the design or text of your choice.
4. Dyson toaster
No more burning your bread as there are toasters which can actually show you how far it is getting toasted and prevent you from burning them unintentionally. The Dyson toaster is a transparent toaster where you can actually see the bread getting toasted. Once the toast has reached the desired brownness, you can rescue it from the toaster before you send it to a burning hole. The deep toasty smell, coupled with the visual appeal is all you need by way of appetizers.
5. Digital image toaster
The digital image toaster or Zuse is a toaster that is designed to work like a matrix printer. Almost the same concept as the scan toaster, the Zuse to can toast the bread with simple digital images on the bread. The concept works with the help of optical sensors which senses the presence of the bread and prints or burns line by line images on the bread. The toaster comes with a memory chip that stores several preset images from which you can choose which one you want to print.
6. Crystal encrusted toaster
Crystals and diamonds are a woman’s best friend and even if it on a toaster, the whole atmosphere can get charged with excitement and all round sparkle! The crystal encrusted toaster by Russel Hobbs is a stainless steel piece with around 200 Swarovski crystals encrusted on a glass surface. It has various settings for browning, crumb tray and facilities for extra lift, all of which make it extra special.
7. Arrow toaster
A design by Stephen King by making use of the Mistral Toaster, the arrow toaster has an arrow shape and settings that are innovative and a far cry from your normal toaster. The browning points are controlled by an arrow pointer and the bread slices are kept with the pointy side up to mimic an arrowhead. A novel way to start a day.
