Our old toaster was pathetic. Really. When we first moved to Tennessee, while Taylor was reluctantly painting our kitchen walls turquoise, I spent hours online picking out a toaster. I finally purchased a cute little $35 toaster on eBay, wooed by the turquoise color and less concerned about the actual functionality of it. When the toaster finally arrived, the adjustment knob on the front was detached and floating around the box. I emailed the seller about the damage, who promptly refunded my $35 and told me it wasn’t even worth the postage to sent it back.

Fast forward seven years later, and we were still using that little turquoise toaster. Turns out if you carefully reinserted the knob you could still choose the toastiness level just fine. Every time it fell out, we just stuck it back in.

Needless to say, I think we were well overdue for a new toaster.

Magimix® Vision Toaster Giveaway from @loveandoliveoil

Enter Magimix® by Robot-Coupe®. Probably most well known for their tricked out food processors (someday…) but I never realized they made toasters too. One look at the slick chrome casing and genius glass front (seriously brilliant) and I was sold.

With our old toaster, I’d have to toast a piece of bread three times, flipping it over and around at least twice if I wanted it even remotely evenly toasted. And even then one side of the bread would be burnt while the other side was still pale and soft.

The Magimix® Vision Toaster makes toast a spectator sport. You can watch your toast toast and remove it at the precise level of toastiness you desire. And with a single cycle, the bread is evenly golden brown on both sides. And the bagel, reheat, and defrost settings will prove useful in just about any toast situation.

  53. I like my toast covered in butter with an egg either inside or on top, yum!

  54. THIS is EXACTLY the toaster I need.  I don’t currently have one – instead I use a cast-iron pan and weigh the bread down with another pan.  The method makes great toast, but it takes FOREVER!
    I like my toast crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, with chewy crusts.

  55. Tweeted!  @chefambershea

  56. That toaster is the coolest!
    I like my toast pretty dark–well done :)

  57. …and I like both pages on FB.

  58. I have toast every morning. I’ve stopped beating myself up about how I just don’t love smoothies or juices in the morning (texture!) and have embraced that toast to me always goes down fine, makes me happy, and is low maintenance. It’s a love affair. I like mine to be a cinnamon raisin toast with room temperature Kerrygold butter. I’m also a jam lover, so sometimes I have toasted English muffins or butterbread with some salted butter and my new favorite jam or jelly. What I have open now is a seedless blackberry jam I picked up in Tennessee while seeing the Smoky Mountains. I try to remember the mountains every time I eat it. 

    I’m also subscribed via email :) 

  59. I prefer my toast very crunchy, flirting with burnt, and slathered with butter and mayhaw jelly.

    Have had my eye on that particular toaster for years, because why on earth don’t all toasters come with glass sides?

  60. I’m a newsletter subscriber. :)

  61. Liked both on Facebook. – Casey M.
