Toasters just making toast is a thing of the past. At the EuroCucina 2014 tradeshow in Milan, kitchenware brand Bugatti demonstrated the elite “Bugatti Noun” transparent toaster that claims to cook anything from shrimp to steak. Oh, and regular toast too.
The toaster is made from glass and chrome, reheating and cooking food via semiconductors embedded in the glass. Using heat-resistant cooking bags, the toaster is designed in a way that allows you to cook consistently and without those bulging hot coils which always threaten to burn your hand off.
The Noun, which is operated through a smartphone app, allows you to search for recipes and send the proper time and temperature directly to the toaster via Bluetooth connection. The Bugatti Noun toaster is set to debut in Europe, with the US to follow at the beginning of 2015.
This innovative device is not for the frugal – for $1000 a pop, this is for people who take their morning toast seriously.
