The BorgCo single use toaster comes in a flatback rather like a disposable BBQ. Open the carboard lid and fold up two thin vertical panels of thermite composition in a binder material. Place bread between the two panels. Pull igniter tab and step back.

When the smoke has cleared, return promptly to retrieve your perfectly cooked toast*.

Not suitable for use indorrs, outdoors, or by anyone over the age of 6 months.

(* Different colour preferences of toast are accomodated from Pale Gold through to Graphite Black. Simply chose the pack whose cover matches the desired colour).

       all BBQs should operate like this.

       All of ours do operate like this ...

       Can there be a final charge in the base which explodes at the end of the operation, ejecting the toast?
pocmloc, May 20 2010
  

       Yes, on the DeLuxe version. Comes complete with single-use thermally insulated Catching Mitt.

       Yes, we have models for bagels too.

       Applications of thermite in the culinary arts are sadly underexplored [+]

       or you could order toast.

       Sounds good for a toasted cheese sandwich too. Might take it to the office for a quick snack. Does it make noise and produce a lot of smoke? I don's want to disturb my working mates.

       Smoke would give it extra flavor.

       Should provide your Minimum Daily Requirement of iron. Not sure if there is an MDR of Al2O3.

       Could I get mine so it also adds images? Maybe Alfred Nobel or the Mythbuster's guys. (+)

       Adam on one side, Jamie on the other ? Good idea !

       Will this set off my smoke alarm? Wait... do I care?
wagster, May 21 2010
  

       Or use C4 instead of thermite for instant transubstantiation.

       Eh ? Try pressing the "F5" key ... you still on dial-up or something ?
8th of 7, May 21 2010
  

       Sure blame it on *my* connection. Are the Borg too proud to admit thier subspace transponders are on the fritz?
MikeD, May 21 2010
  

       We blame AOL.
