Armed Toaster

make lovely toast

Most tosters have a simple pop-up mechanism, but Armed Toaster doesn't pop up. Instead of popping up the toast, a simple folded over arm grips the bread with a set of mechanical fingers and pulls the toast out when it's ready.

It's a purely mechanical operation, with the energy to operate the arm being delivered by a spring that gets primed when the bread is inserted and the arm folded over into the gripping position. Once the set time has been reached, a simple solenoid switch releases the catch holding the arm in the folded over position, causing the spring to pull it upright, bringing the toast with it.

Now all you need do is to open the fingers gripping the edge of the slice of toast and enjoy your culinary achievement.
Inevitable deluxe version feature two arms that make two slices.

A similar idea, without the toast. [Wrongfellow, Sep 26 2017]

       Reluctant bun, because the idea doesn't live up to the promise of the title.

       "A similar idea, without the toast." Is a microwave a similar idea to a fridge, only without the ice making?

       //Reluctant bun// Your's can have two arms. One to handle the toast, by flinging it towards the ceiling, and the other is armed with a pistol to shoot holes in it as it flies through the air.
