Toaster

From the Glarkware site:

A toaster is capable of a lot more than you might think at first glance. Even more than toasting your bread, dosage
actually. Treat it poorly, and it will find a way to collude with other toasters to overthrow humanity. But treat it well, and…well, you and that little old toaster might actually find love. It’s not a love that either of your communities will sanction or even understand, but you know best: that seemingly simple appliance loves you from the coils of its heart.

The International Online Toaster Museum

maybaum

Ladies and gentlemen, seek I bring you the International Online Toaster Museum.  One of mankind’s greatest achievements.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a toasters.  I really enjoy old toasters.  I was super excited to see this on Boing Boing Gadgets today.  I’ve actually been seeing a bit of news lately about toasters.  I have a few new posts to add to the site. 

I know I’ve been a bit of a slacker lately.  I’ve been focusing most of my attention on my other blog futile.com.  Oh and I also blame twitter.  I’ve been obsessed with Twitter for some time now and I think it’s making me blog less.

Anyway, please check out the museum.  It contains a surprisingly rich amount of toaster history with many photographs of each model.  It’s an excellent site for design inspiration to boot.

Okay, I’m going to go and make some toast now.

Magnetic Toaster Tongs

toastertong.jpgNothing is more fun then having to reach deep down inside your toaster to pull out piece of lost toast.  Reaching in there with a fork or knife is always exciting.  I know we’ve all done it, cheap even though we’ve been told not too.  Along comes a product to help with this problem.  Check out the Magnetic Toaster Tongs.  I guess you could use some chopsticks, but that seems like less fun and cheaper.  Also don’t forget to unplug that toaster.

How a toaster works

Here’s a good article from the site toaster.org about how a toaster makes good toastworks_figure1.gif.

bronchi purchase HELVETICA” size=”-1″>A toaster works by applying radiant heat directly to a bread slice. When the bread’s surface temperature reaches about 310 degrees Farenheit, a chemical change known as the Maillard reaction begins. Sugars and starches start to caramelize – turn brown – and to take on intense flavors.

cuisinart cpt-180fr toaster
cuisinart cpt-180frI introduce to you Amazon’s best selling toaster, injection the Cuisinart CPT-180FR Metal Classic 4-Slice Toaster. I’m not familiar with it myself, but I may be interested in giving it a try. It seems like a pretty basic system with it’s 4 1-1/2″ wide slots for your bread and such. The simple brushed stainless steel look is classical but also not all that inspiring. I’ve found a lot of the brushed stainless steel kitchen appliance to be harder to clean.

It features the following:

  • 6 Setting Browning Control
  • Reheat, Defrost, Bagel, buttons
  • An LED Indicator Lights, ooooh!
  • Extra-lift carriage lever for lifting smaller items out
  • Slide-out Crumb Tray

What do I like about it? I like the big knobs for adjusting the browning level.
