The trend has expanded to include even the simplest kitchen gadgets. Take this toaster by Morphy Richards, for instance: dubbed the 'Ecolectric," it promises an evenly browned slice of toast every time for an energy cost of 35 percent less.

Toast is always in fashion. Perhaps that's why when we raise our glasses to celebrate something we call it a toast--or maybe not. (Actually, it may just be.) Whether toasted bread and toasting drinks have anything historically to do with each other, the fact of the matter is that toast is delicious, and we need a way to make it.
Toaster ovens are convenient little contraptions offering much more versatility than the simple toasters of the past. The DeLonghi Six-Slice Toaster Oven marries that versatility with convenience and packages it into one attractive unit. Featuring clean lines reminiscent of … Read more

One great kitchen mystery is how a watched pot never manages to boil, but there is another, similar puzzle: When will the toast be ready? However, unlike simply not watching, there is no easy remedy to (seemingly) speed along the cooking process. It will be ready when it pops up, and that is that. We are left to wonder on our own, only to be surprised by the toast popping up when we least expect it. Until now.
Having a handy second oven is a convenience like no other. It doesn't have to be big like an oven-oven, just big enough to accommodate side dishes or small meals. If that small second oven contains a rotisserie, then it's all the better.

What a concept Portable toaster
Why didn’t I think of that? PermaFLOW Self Cleaning Drain System
We've covered silly-slash-interesting concepts before, but I'm not really clear on how I should feel about this handheld portable toaster by Korean designer Been Kim. You apparently run it over your bread like a fancy butter knife and it toasts that side in your hand. An LCD readout on the back gradually tells you just how toasty your toast is getting.
The product, still a concept as far as we can tell, is apparently wireless and uses a cord-free charging system. We're not sure how practical this is or if it can replace a regular toaster, but … Read more
You can always count on an exhibition to inspire companies to create and display some pretty cool stuff, and the International Housewares Show in Chicago is no exception. Among Haier's showings this year is the new Piano Black line of small appliances.
The blue LED illumination looks good, but it's the features, like cool-to-the-touch handles, that will really win you over. This is a full line of appliances, including a cordless electric water kettle in standard and dome shapes, digital toasters in a variety of configurations, a food processor and blender combination, a citrus juicer, and more.

The other day a friend and I were discussing which was better to own: a toaster or a toaster oven. Toasters, being specialized appliances, tend to do a really good job at making toast. Toaster ovens however, sometimes fall short. But when it comes to practicality, the toaster oven is perfect for a multitude of tasks. In the end there is really no debate, as the only answer is simply to have one of each. While that may seem a bit overkill to some, it certainly isn't if the appliance you choose is more oven than toaster.
