Must Have: Trebuchet Toaster Launches Breakfast Beth Snyder September 4, 2012 Every once in a while, something comes along and pretty much demands I own it. This is one of those times. Not only do I enjoy toast as well as various other bread-type foods that can be toasted, I am at heart a geek. And more often than not, a history geek. About a year ago I remember having a conversation with someone about trebuchets, and he refused to believe it was a real thing. So I gave him a history lesson. Now I really, really wish I could have done it with toast. Because…well, just because. Of course, because the gods hate me, this is not an actual product available on the market, but rather a concept piece by Ivo Vos (it’s actually part of a complete breakfast tool set called The Brunch). I still want one, though. It works basically as you’d expect, at least from the toasting your bread end. However, the toaster sits at an angle, which allows you to set the projectile height before starting the cooking process. When your toast is finished, it shoots out the top of the toaster, ideally onto your plate rather than the floor. It’s like doing science with your breakfast! The rest of the set includes a bread slicer (which prevents you from cutting yourself while preparing your bread to be shot across the room), a tea pot which will measure and record the height at which tea should be poured, and a placemat with outlines to show you proper placement of your plate and utensils. What I really want is the toaster, though. Really a lot. Source: Digital Trends Share This With The World!
