Sarah Rae over at The Kitchn beat us to the punch with her post about the very same Bodum toasters we spied recently while browsing the aisles of Sur La Table (we had a nearly negligible $10 gift certificate, which affords you a single napkin or 1/8 of an espresso spoon). The eye catching design of these colourful rubber coated candy toasters were fetching amongst the typical lineup of bread browning devices, but somewhat marred by the huge BODUM logo (branding should be subtle), but we like the colourful personality these exhibit...Here's what Sarah Rae had to say about these toasters:
We like toast, it's a quick snack or even dinner sometimes. But our love for toast is matched by our hatred for cleaning fingerprints off the side of the toaster. That is, until we saw the new rubber exteriors on these brightly colored versions, from Bodum. Is it wrong to call a toaster sexy?
We like the idea of having well used appliances on the counters, but we also love the idea of adding colors to our spaces with more than just flowers. This 900 watt toaster can take on bread slices and bagels alike with adjustable-width slots. It also boasts a warming rack and heat resistant rubber exterior, so not only does it look good, but it will stay cool to the touch! Plus, it's available in 8 knock out colors.
They're available for $79.95 from Sur La Table and for $79.99 over at Amazon, sometimes with a free cutting board (oooh, ahhh).
