The trilogy that is the Panasonic Breakfast Collection is now complete. Joining the electric kettle and the coffeemaker is the Panasonic NT-ZP1V Stainless Steel and Glass Toaster. Initially back-ordered while the other two countertop appliances enjoyed their moments to shine, the toaster is now available at a price of $199.95 and ships in one to three business days.
This brings the curtain down on Panasonic's Breakfast Collection for the moment. The three matching appliances are available in violet or in a cool smoke finish. Decking out the kitchen with distinctive design does not come cheap, however; the three appliances will set you back over $600 for the set.
Completing collections is often an exercise in restraint. Just because they exist does not mean you have to pick them up. In this case, though, they sure would look nice gathered together on the kitchen counter. Here, the toaster takes off from the classic, iconic appeal of the appliance and adds an elegant touch. Sure, features like seven browning levels, and defrost and reheat settings are present and accounted for, but it is the LED indicators and shiny finish that is the draw for this everyday appliance.
They may look like they are from a future far, far away, but this trifecta of appliances is available right here at home, and the story is now complete. Unless, of course, there are any sequels to come.
