The first electric toaster was invented in 1893 in Great Britain by Crompton and Co and re-invented in 1909 in the United States. Since then we have had to deal with burnt and over done toast… why? Paul Brown, the inventor of the Perfect Toaster may put and end to this saga. The Perfect Toaster is the world’s first toaster technology to be able to sense the browness of toast by monitoring caramelisation effects, guaranteeing perfect toast every time without burning. And you ask how this is all done… with a ionising particle sensor. If you work for a major appliance or toaster manufacturer, please contact Paul over at Magnetic Design so we all can enjoy perfect toast. [via Gizmo]
