Bodum Bistro toasters look great, toast even greater


Ask me to name any one "gadget" that has only been absolutely utilitarian and rarely good-looking, and I would answer in a blink - the toaster. Really, the toaster is the last appliance I would expect to possess great beauty. Perhaps the reason lies in the fact that its job of toasting bread is an absolute necessity and not one that people can be excited about, compared to say, the iPhone that does your communication, photos, videos, music, what not. But this Bistro toaster from Bodum challenges the underdog status that has been assigned to toasters, and manages to bring elegance to the mundane task that it is assigned with.

This two-slice toaster commands total attention with its sprightly, heat-resistant rubber exterior that always stays cool to the touch. Take your pick from 8 bright colors to suit your kitchen decor. And be assured that the bread will be toasted to perfection with its powerful 900-watt capacity. The Bistro also features adjustable-width slots, variable browning function, built-in warming rack, cancel and defrost settings, and pull-out crumb tray. Personally, this device gets a thumbs up because of its great looks plus a sensible, sturdy design. Priced at $79.95 from Sur La Table.
