A Toaster For a Single Slice of Bread Is Nothing To Be Sad About

Illustration for article titled A Toaster For a Single Slice of Bread Is Nothing To Be Sad About

Most people's first reaction to a toaster with just a single slot is to feel pity on the lonely soul who would need such a device. But that's the wrong reaction to have here. The pity part is ok—but not because the probable owner of this toaster must be single and lonely. It's more likely because they live in an incredibly cramped apartment with a kitchen no bigger than a closet.

This toaster might make toasting a bagel a long process since both sides have to be done separately, but what you lose in a few extra minutes of sleep, you gain in an appliance that's no bigger than a thick dictionary. Which means that if this $78 toaster is still too large to leave on your cramped counter all the time, you can easily stash it alongside your cookbooks on the bookshelf.

Good grief. What I've learned from this is people have no imagination or appreciation for a small place in which one must live. If you live in NYC, in a tiny apartment where every square inch is valuable....yeah, this might be worth it. One pays a premium for size, sometimes. A lighter laptop costs more. And so on.
