This Dieter Rams-Inspired Toaster Is Ridiculously Handsome

Take your kitchen to the next level.

"Cool" and "toaster" don't normally go in the same sentence, but this bad boy from Japanese brand BALMUDA is about to change that.

The smart appliance uses high-flying tech to "steam" your bread instead of "toast" it, resulting in perfectly browned toast that's soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It's also the easiest (and best) way to warm up croissants, baguettes, leftover pizza, dinner rolls, whatever.

Priced at $380 and shipping now, it's a bit on the expensive side, but if you consider how nicely it will dress up your kitchen while seriously elevating your standard toaster experience, it feels about right.
