Dyson Air Bread

makes toast, but don't attempt drying your hands in it

Dyson Air Bread is a toaster based on the principles of his amazing Airblade hand drier. (see link)

The toaster version has a caddy that swings out so that a slice of bread can be held in place long enough to be blasted by the superheated air stream. This is a fully automated process. The air is heated by gas flame based on a replaceable cartridge system

This entire process enables an additional feature to be added, and that is the ability to spray the toasting bread with sticky airborne particles, like grated cheese. An extra hopper is provided for this feature.

       Now just how will it be activated? Evil laugh, perhaps?

       Will it toast, though?

       Toasting basically involves the dessication and then partial oxidation/caramelisation of the outer layers of the bread. I have a suspicion that this could be attained chemically, as well as thermally.

       Impingement ovens already cook all your pizzas, from fast food joints.

       Remembered another toaster, Paul Hogan show...2 minutes 46 seconds into the video (seelink)   

       Back to the thread, the flame'll have to be hot, otherwise it's just a way to get very dry bread. <wonders what would happen if own "training hamsters to skydive hand dryer" is accidentally switched with this one..shudders>

       Actually gas heated air is not ideal, as water is a waste product of the combustion. Impingement ovens work a lot getting the humidity out of the air, to get your thin base crispy.

       I suppose there would need to be the added complication of a heat exchanger to ensure that the air was devoid of moisture.

       Complicated dessication procedures may not be necessary, a simple [MaxwellBuchanan]'s daemon may do the trick. Unfortunately, this still needs to be 'baked into existance, the current embodiment blows little hot air.

       And yet, strangely, is mostly composed of just that.
