"Cd" Toaster

toaster that looks and acts like a cd player

I like toasters and I like making toast, and I like the idea of loading special circular pieces of bread unto a cd tray, which then slides horizontally inside the toaster to be grilled.

Of course there is a spinning action to ensure even heat and colouration, along with a type of pick up arm, just like the one in a computer hard drive, that delivers and spreads the butter before the toast emerges.

       Well, cylindrical loaves are Baked   

       </not a pun>   

       so the bread part is practical. Yes, this could be made. We particularly like the automatic buttering component. [+]

       Love it [+] but could it let the toast cool a little before applying the butter. Slightly melted is so much better than totally melted.

       Although slices of bread usually take form of a MTC rather than a CD, but I am all for CDs. [+]

       This has potential. Such a device could do the "LightScribe" thing (see link) with the stylus and write words, patterns, and pictures on the toast.

       I thought this would be a CD burner in the form of a toaster...

       [hippo] just don't put you cds in there!!
which btw is an alternate good idea! +

       Keeping with the LightScribe idea, the stylus would of course be the same heating element that turns the bread into toast.
