Balmuda Toaster

The beautifully designed Balmuda Toaster uses steam to make toast taste bakery fresh! Winner of the good design award, the Japanese toaster ensures your toast comes out not only perfectly browned on both sides, but also still soft and fluffy on the inside. The smart appliance strategically controls when the heating elements turn on and off, while producing a steady stream of steam. There is nothing like a slice of fresh-baked bread, and the Balmuda boasts the ability to turn ordinary store-bought into something that smells, tastes and feels like it popped out of a bakers oven in a matter of minute. watch the video below
