Going out is an option now, but we’re still preparing most of our meals at home. This is especially true when it comes to breakfast. It’s a lot easier to throw together some toast, a bagel or english muffin than it is to leave the house and get breakfast somewhere. All that toasting requires a quality toaster. Does the forty dollar option from the big box store do the job eventually? Yes. But there’s a better way, and it’s this pricey Revolution R180 Smart Toaster. Yes, this toaster is a luxury item based on price alone, but that price tag does have merit. The Revolution uses a proprietary InstaGlo heating system and exclusive etched metal double helix design heating to heat up and toast in a fraction of the time compared to conventional toasters. This technology means you’ll have bread, bagels, english muffins, waffles or toaster pastries that are perfectly crispy on the outside, warm on the inside and cooked to whatever one of the seven browning levels you prefer. All you have to do is insert your raw carbohydrate, use the touchscreen to tell the toaster the type of food, whether its fresh / frozen / reheating and the browning level. Perfect toast every time.
