Untoaster

untoast bread

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 toasting!

       I'll just delete mine, even though it does more. I did search but not seen.

       Up to you... With the optional featureset I'm happy enough, having projected mild disgruntlement at the lack of credit.
