A Porsche that makes breakfast

If you can't afford a Carrera, you can have the toaster

A lot of over-designed household appliances we've seen are just silly, but the toaster is one that deserves royal treatment. Why? Because toasters have been an icon of the personal computer since its Dark Ages, as far back as the 1980s. Yet the brick-and-mortar version of this domestic staple has been largely neglected.

Finally, though, someone has come to the rescue of the lowly appliance, and it's truly a knight in shining armor: Porsche. The brushed-aluminum, quartz-heated toaster--manufactured by Siemens with a Porsche design--looks as good as a Carrera, with an appropriate sticker price of $224, according to OhGizmo. But if it actually works for more than a month, unlike the last dozen or so we've had to throw out--it would be worth it.
