Multi-Function Microwave Handles All Your Dinner Prep Except Buying Groceries

If you demand every tool and appliance in your kitchen to more than pull its weight, you'll want to check out this multi-function wonder from Italian company Ariete. Its new 4-in-1 kitchen miracle combines a microwave, a grill, a toaster oven, and a bread maker into a single stainless steel covered metal box.

With a 25-liter cooking capacity you can nuke almost anything, or whip up two pounds of delicious fresh-baked bread using one of ten different presets. There's also a handy child lock which presumably keeps little ones from accessing scalding hot food, or irradiating their favorite action figure. And at just over $170 if you crunch the numbers you're actually saving quite a bit of money, not just counter space. [Ariete via Appliancist]
