Toasty – retro toaster like a cassette deck

Toasters are pretty standard in design – a set number of slots in the top, a catch to push down and a pop-up when it’s ready. But all that could change with Toasty.

Toasty is a new way of toasting your bread products, mixing 80s technology with 50s styling. Open it up like a cassette deck, pop in your bread and close. When it’s ready, the door pops open and your ready to butter. If only it printed a cassette pattern on the bread, this would be pretty much perfect.

It might yet happen, because this is a concept courtesy of designer Arthur Wu, not quite ready to go into production. When it does, we’ll be at the front of the queue.

  1. I will be pushing you out of line at the front of the queue – I want this so bad!!!
    Will need a matching waffle maker eventually too.
    Great link – thx.

  2. hey industrial designer arthur wu:
    form should follow function – who wants to wait for one piece of toast at a time? what if someone wants to make a toasted sandwich?
    how about a ‘double cassette’ design? i’ll only take 5% of net for the idea…
    remember the Nakamichi ‘dual head’ cassette deck? or are you a pure digital tech head and were weaned on CDs only?
    great idea. needs work…
    nice mock-up. is the toast real?
