I wonder why it has taken so long to invent. Designers in the UK have come up with a novel new toaster with glass sides. Burnt or under-done toast could soon be a thing of the past thanks to the new glass toaster that lets you see your bread as it browns.
Bread is placed between two sheets of heated glass and cooked in full view so you can eject your slice at the perfect moment. A traditional timer dial is still incorporated for people who are too busy to keep an eye on their bread.

Melinda Hart from product developer Inventables said: “This transparent toaster allows you to see bread while it is toasting so you’re never surprised by toast that comes out too dark.
“This idea is based on a transparent heating glass technology.”
But it’s not all good news. The current design, with a chrome base and neatly cut glass, only fits one piece of bread at a time.
And as one online reviewer notes of the invention: “I bet the glass is a right sod to keep clean.”
