Single use self-destructing toaster

  [vote for,

The BorgCo single use toaster comes in a flatback rather like a disposable BBQ. Open the carboard lid and fold up two thin vertical panels of thermite composition in a binder material. Place bread between the two panels. Pull igniter tab and step back.

When the smoke has cleared, return promptly to retrieve your perfectly cooked toast*.

Not suitable for use indoors, outdoors, in doorways, or by anyone over the age of 6 months.

(* Different colour preferences of toast are accomodated from Pale Gold through to Graphite Black. Simply chose the pack whose cover matches the desired colour).

Holy toast ! http://www.thedaily...and-the-holy-toast/
It must be true, it's in the paper ... [8th of 7, May 21 2010]


       all BBQs should operate like this.

       All of ours do operate like this ...

       Can there be a final charge in the base which explodes at the end of the operation, ejecting the toast?
pocmloc, May 20 2010

       Yes, on the DeLuxe version. Comes complete with single-use thermally insulated Catching Mitt.

       Yes, we have models for bagels too.

       Applications of thermite in the culinary arts are sadly underexplored [+]

       or you could order toast.

       Sounds good for a toasted cheese sandwich too. Might take it to the office for a quick snack. Does it make noise and produce a lot of smoke? I don's want to disturb my working mates.

       Should provide your Minimum Daily Requirement of iron. Not sure if there is an MDR of Al2O3.

       Could I get mine so it also adds images? Maybe Alfred Nobel or the Mythbuster's guys. (+)

       Adam on one side, Jamie on the other ? Good idea !

       Will this set off my smoke alarm? Wait... do I care?

       Or use C4 instead of thermite for instant transubstantiation.

       Father, Son, and Holy Toast ?

       You're such a tease.
MikeD, May 21 2010

       Eh ? Try pressing the "F5" key ... you still on dial-up or something ?
8th of 7, May 21 2010

       Sure blame it on *my* connection. Are the Borg too proud to admit thier subspace transponders are on the fritz?
MikeD, May 21 2010

       We blame AOL.
