Bodum Bistro Flatbed Toaster

By Andrew Liszewski

It looks like Bodum’s unofficial mission to give every kitchen a colorful makeover continues with their Bistro Flatbed Toaster. Like the company’s conventional toasters this model is available in 8 different stylish colors, but unlike their conventional toasters there’s no slots on this one, just a stainless steel flatbed cooktop that uses a 700-watt heating element to toast slot-unfriendly items like croissants, baguettes and leftover pizza slices.

There’s a simple dial allowing you to specify the level of browning, and when not in use the Flatbed Toaster can be stored on its side, freeing up counter space. They appear to be available on the Bodum UK site for about $98 after currency conversion, but it looks like Hammacher sells them as well for $89.95.

    A toaster oven is cheaper so I think I will go with that.

    I already have it and love using to make tortillas! You can buy at http://www.bodumusa.com for $79.95, great price for multi-use toaster-

    Sometimes I pay for aesthetics but this seems to have some interesting uses.

    They really should have a chrome/silver finish option. I like my appliances to match.

    this almost seems like a bad idea… not to say it's not functional or anything, but it does seem like an invitation to be used as an alternate weapon by every angry wife out there that is too tired to dig out the frying pan.

    Mmmm toasted croissants. If it's faster than pre-heating my oven, it'd be one more appliance to clutter my counter.
