Manual or electric, simply place the toast in the tray, burnt side down. Rollers move it over a vibrating serrated knife-edge at a low angle to remove excess carbon. If both sides were overdone then - predictably - turn it over and send it through, again.

A half-baked design that could be improved by the cunning application of a Toast Planer. [Wrongfellow, Mar 15 2018]

While I respect your idea (+), I happen to like burnt toast ... Orbital_20toaster

       Wood planers use a rotary cutting wheel. Surely that would be more stable?

       //rotary cutting wheel// sounds more complicated than a simple automation of the usual method: scraping a serrated dinner knife over the toast over the sink.

       A plurality of vibrating serrated knife-edges could be arranged to move slightly up and down with respect to each other.   

       If the cutting action occurred precisely at the toast-carbon boundary, this adjustment would result in a visible modulation of the perceived darkness of the toast.   

       This could allow the Toast Planer to offer all the same functionality as the Toast Planner. [link]

       What's needed, shirley, is a full toastal CNC. It could be used to plane, but could also create grooves to hold additional butter.

       I'm sure that Computerised Numerical Toasting is almost certaintly baked already, probably.   

       I think.
Wrongfellow, Mar 15 2018
  

       Can the CNC shred the toast, spray melted butter, and then reassemble it resulting in a precise percentage of butter in any range from "dry as a matron's sheets" to "it's a stick of butter"?
