Acually it gives me the horrors to imagine all the things that could & would go wrong with that little set-up.Katie
Oh I am with you on that one! We nearly burnt the house down last week with toast, so not sure I could handle that! But very different isn't it? xo
Someone really loves their bagels! that, or else they wanted to show off their cute toaster but ran out of counter space.
Would hate to think what would happen if someone "accidently" pushed the toaster back into its little hidey hole whilst it was still toasting!!?? Another mini milestone planned this week A-M - the 1/2way marker on the mountain! Stay tuned. (My knees are groaning already...):)Sharyne
What an unusual little set-up. It wouldn't be home for me if there wasn't bread/toast crumbs all over the kitchen bench :)
Wow, that's a no-no! I don't even like having my toaster under the top cupboards given our careless ways...
Ha, that homeowner clearly does not have kids - the mind boggles at the thought of how that little idea would go at my place, with three teenagers! K xx
Well I'm with you on the fire hazard, but it would be fun to look down and watch the toast get brown. Small pleasures for small minds, I guess.
In our household, we'd have crumbs all over the floor *rolls eyes*.Obviously, someone who doesn't make toast thought this one up or has someone to do it for them!
Agree with everyone there. not very practical at all. nice toaster though. Cathyxx
Hmmm... I think that looks really dangerous! A not so clever design...
i couldn't be doing with this at all. I like an ocean of bench around me to spread out the honey/marmalade/vegemite/p-butter/avocadoes/tomoatoes/jam/eggs.this would do my head in! jx
Forget what any kid could do -- I would burn the toast and probably the house down. LOL!
Yes and just about small child shoulder height to knock off. Very impractical.We actually have a Dualit toaster like that. I loathe it and my husband loves it. It is really noisy and whenever we go away I say 'what's wrong with the toaster it's not making any noise' and then I realise that Normal Toasters are in fact silent. xoxo
A disaster waiting to happen... Imagine what else could get toasted by the ever-curious toddler!Clare x
This is one of those style over function things isn't it:).....This is the only scenario where this works.....they have grown up children that don't live at home and the husband has his own toaster somewhere else and she will only eat rubber bread with no crumbs.
I really don't like this one! Imagine all the crumbles going inside the cabinet and never coming out!
I can assure you so would my kids, hubby included hahaha
There is a fine line between clever and stupid - that toaster totally crossed it.
Er, I think not. It's a perfect example of design over common sense, for all the reasons mentioned above.
cybill..you took the words right out of my mouth!!!
My husband would.
Um...NO!My first thought was 'What happens when that one blows up and you cant get one the same size?'. Mice would have a field day...so would the fire service!Ness xx
Ummm... NO! A disaster waiting to happen for sure.. don't worry about the kids I would set the house on fire!Flick x
Mon dieu - just imagine what trouble our guests cold get themselves into with this - it is bad enough with a normal toaster as we found out this morning when the smoke alarm went off.....Leeann x
That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Guaranteed someone has built it a few times over though and done exactly as you said, burnt the toast and lit the bench on fire!XO, Andrea
Fire, hip bruises, 5 year stash of crumbs in the back of the bench. I'm sure there are other cons with this little arrangment. I'm all for hiding the toaster when not in use, but who thought of this one - surely someone who does not serve 5rounds of toast on an average school morning?
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
