With some elaborate exceptions, the toaster has largely not improved in over a generation. The Automatic Toast Machine is a proposal for a much more modern appliance that surely promises color and textural perfection. Resembling a sort of George Foreman, the device can double as a sandwich press.
The body of this toaster is larger than the original appliance and it lies flat instead of upright. It can accommodate four regular slices and those more awkward and big bits of bread. Lay them down on the corrugated hotplate and the easy press of a button will collapse the hinged hood. A fully automated process makes the Bang & Olufsen Automatic Toast Machine so simple to use and to clean.
