Sometimes when you make toast, it's a bit overdone. The
traditional course of action is to either throw it out and
start again (wasteful) or to scrape off the burnt crumbs
(messy and the bread can get too cold).
This is no longer a problem if you have equipped your
kitchen with an Untoaster.
Here's how it works:
The over-toasted bread is inserted into a horizantal slot
on the side of the machine, and the degree of untoasting
that's required is input on the simple dial, with "Totally
Black Both Sides" being the highest initial setting.
On entering the machine, a mechanical scraper abrades
either one or both surfaces of the bread, the carbonised
crumbs being sucked into a removable storage bin. Once
this operation is complete, a mist of steam is applied to
the bread to restore some of the moisture that was lost
in the original toasting. Gentle warming ensures the
bread emerges toasted to the originally anticipated
degree of perfection, and ready to receive butter. Happy
