Bugatti Noun: a Fancy, Overpriced Toaster for Rich Dumbasses

Enter the Bugatti Noun, it has the distinction of being the world’s most over-engineered (and most expensive?) piece of consumer toasting technology.

To be fair to the Noun, it has some pretty cool features – first of all, it uses far infrared radiation to toast your food, which will most often be bread) at temperatures as high as 300ºC (572ºF) to toasty perfection in as little as 80 seconds. What’s more, you can see it all happening, thanks to Bugatti’s use of “a special transparent glass ceramic material with an ultra-high resistance semiconductor.” The panels will move in until they come into contact with your toasting target. Cooking possibilities are not limited to bread, it can also cook meat, fish and vegetables (as long as you put them in special cooking bags).

Naturally, the toaster is controlled via touchscreen display and an app, which allows users to set precise temperatures and cooking times, or choose from a range of presets for performing such functions as heating bagels, defrosting and, most importantly of all, toasting. The panels and crumb collection tray are removable for easy cleaning.

Price: $1000 (available in the United States in early 2015) [via Gizmag]
