Bread warmers

Warm bread, like fresh from the baker?

Two possibilities:

A very low-tech one: a linen bread basket which doubles as a warmer because it has a filling made of cherry pits. You heat the bread basket for 60 seconds in a microwave, the pits filling retains heat and keeps bread warm for your guests. Created by French designers C.Quoi , it goes in the washer and costs $65 (a tad expensive for a piece of linen filled with cherry pits.)
(via Metaefficient)
A tech maddish one created by designer Belmer Negrillo: Paneluce is a precooked bread which doubles as an electronic object. You get a bread, a 60Watts bulb, a normal electrical socket and salt. The bread has been previously precooked but taken out of the oven before it was completely cooked inside. All internal electrical parts were insulated previously with hard flour batter.

Now you plug the bread in the wall and wait 20 minutes with it lit to have the bread fully cooked. What happens is that the waste of energy of the bulb, that is converted in heat, finishes the cooking from inside. If you cook it too much the bread becomes too hard and dry to be eaten. But no stress! It becomes so hard that becomes an object with a pleasant warm glow.
Of course, that's a concept product. But as I'm a hopeless cook, it hardly makes any difference to me.
