Burnt Impressions is selling this toaster that toasts selfies onto bread. For just $75 you can have a very vague depiction of your face on a piece of toast. Whoa, that’s like Jesus status! Still, how narcissistic do you have to be to warrant buying a selfie toaster? I don’t know, but my guess is VERY.
What Makes a Good Toaster?
Because slot toasters only perform one task, it’s essential they perform that task well. Slot toasters should reliably and evenly toast multiple types of bread to different levels of doneness without burning or under-toasting. If they have additional features, like a defrost function, the features should be effective. They should also be easy to use and clean. Since it will likely live out on your counter, it’s always a plus if it looks nice, too.
Our Testing Methodology
The testing ultimately boiled down to three tests with one pre-test. The pre-test was to determine if we could use white bread (as opposed to more popular whole wheat) to test the toasters. The other tests all involved either fresh or frozen white bread, fresh or frozen white bagels, and fresh English muffins.
We also made notes on things like ease of cleaning, ease of bread removal, and overall aesthetics.
