365/306: 22 December 2010: Toaster design

Once upon a time toasters were rather scrappy bits of kit that sat unlovely and unloved in the corner of the kitchen – but I’ve noticed recently that they’ve become all art-deco, neo-classical, shiny chrome kitschy kitchenware. Anyone know why? After all is said and done they’re just machines designed to burn adequately cooked bread.
Anyway – here’s ours – I’m just fascinated by the amount of design effort someone has put into it. It even has a cold toast warming button.
