His Master's Toast is so named because it resembles the famous name sake record label in appearance.
It is of course a toaster, which only toasts one side at a time (which is how I like my toast)
Here's how it works: you place a piece of the special preference circular bread on the turn-table,
then lower the pick up arm in place. Instead of a stylus head, this has a heating element, so that as the bread rotates, it gets toasted. The faint aroma of the delightfully browning bread is vented out through the funnelled attachment, where a seated mechanical dog starts barking when it's done to pre-set perfection.

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||With appropriate modulation of the power applied to the heating element, you could draw pictures on your toast too.
||Splendid idea. A seperate nozzle behind the heating element could be used to dispense your choice of delicious preserve or spread onto the toast whilst it was still hot.
||Will it not be the case that by the time the heating element has tracked across the disc, the starting point will have cooled to ambient temperature ?
||This would be better implemented as a CD player. Existing
BluRay laser diodes are quite capable of toasting.
||Possibly the platter could be a heated element,
keeping the bread nicely warm whilst the top surface
is being lased.
||This idea has too many unrelated elements to it. The basic idea of one-sided toast can be accomplished simply by breaking one heating element in a common toaster. [+]
