This is a toaster that is connected to your TeeVee tuner. The toast will only pop up during commercials while your favorite shows are on. Furthermore, you can program it so that the toaster knows when shows are on that you don't care about, allowing toast to pop up at any time.
There is an available
optional attachment for sports enthusiasts. IF your favorite sports team is playing, and IF they win, fireworks, party poppers and confetti will fly out of the toaster (if it isn't already busy making celebration toast). A halon fire suppression system will engage if the kitchen drapes catch fire (again).

||the logical progressions for this idea are brilliant, a
hot beverage machine set to recognise the approach
of commercials and prepare your drink to be ready at
the correct moment perhaps? perhaps it could also
dispense a bun to be enjoyed during the break?
either way you get a bun
||If it doesn't pop up during the 7-12 minutes the show
is on, won't the bread burn?
||That's the clever bit... even though you push the lever down, the heating elements will be on a time-delay circuit.
