13 Most Creative Toasters

1Star Wars Toaster

3Hello Kitty Toaster

Why eat boring, plain toast when you can enjoy it with a Hello Kitty face on every slice! With seven browning levels, a cute pink and white cool-touch exterior, and self-adjusting bread guides, this could quite possibly be the most girly, yet delicious piece of toast you've ever eaten.

4Portable Toaster

Unlike standard toasters, the Portable Toaster has a graphic user interface that shows how well the bread is toasted and how long it has been in with animated pictures.

5Catapult Toaster

This toaster is part of Ivo Vos's ‘Brunch' collection. It's a toast catapult, or trebuchet. One cool feature is that it lets you calibrate the force and angle of your toast's trajectory.

6Pop Art Toaster

9Roller Toaster

Designed by Jaren Goh of Singapore, and winner of the 2006 Red Dot Award, the ROLLERtoaster is pretty self explanatory: stick bread in one side, and watch it get rolled into toast by the compact little unit.
