Can someone please explain to me why anyone needs a high-tech toaster. I make my toast in a toaster oven that is deliciously low-tech. I turn a dial for the timer and listen to it buzz away as it counts down. I adjust the length of time depending on the thickness and type of bread. It is not rocket science; if you can’t get toast right then you have some serious problems that need more than a high-tech toaster to solve.
Philips thinks that we need a high tech toaster, so they have given us the 1200W HD2618. It is a 1200W toaster, so it should get your breakfast of champions ready in a very short amount of time. It has a removable non-stick crumb tray and a one sided toasting option. The anodized aluminum finish and digital countdown timer look very sweet, but remind yourself, it is a toaster; the absolute bottom of the appliance food chain.
Price: $120, which is a little expensive for a toaster if you ask me.
