Kitchen (or Kitschy) Tech: Nordica Radio Toaster

Home + Housewares Show 2010

Throw in OBH Nordica's Radio Toaster in the "weird and wonderful" category of things we saw earlier this Monday at the Home+Housewares Show. Yes, it's a functional 2-sloce electric toaster that also has a built-in AM//FM radio, complete with settings for Jazz, Rock, Classical, Flat and Pop. What do you think? Cool or just a little off tune?

The other item on display we noted at the OBH Nordica was a preproduction soda maker machine. The sculptural displays were non-functional, but definitely will give Sodastream a run for its money for best looking home carbonating system.
