I’m not sure if it’s normal even for a tech blogger to get excited over a toaster but after peering down the cooking crevice at a seemingly raw bagel this morning only to find that the bottom was burnt, I feel completely at one with the idea behind this concept Dyson-like transparent model.
US designer David Chacon is obviously thinking of the kind heating elements we see on electric hobs which does make me slightly wonder whether one’s bread product will end up fused to the cooking surface.
Assuming it works though, not only will it stop you burning your toast but it would also leave more room to fit chunky baps, baguettes and buns. Then truly this toaster would be the best thing since…no, no, I’m not going to say it.
