Update: I spied an electric toaster in Baz Luhrmann's movie of The Great Gatsby. The toaster and a bunch of other props for the movie were supplied by Toaster Central.

Toaster Central supplied a gorgeous 1930s commercial waffle iron for the HBO series Mildred Pierce.

You can see a CAT scan of my Sunbeam egg cooker created by artist Satre Stuelke on his web site Radiology Art. He lives down the street while going to medical school at Cornell. I met him after an article about his work was in the NY Times.

Toaster Central was included in the October 2008 issue of Saveur Magazine, devoted to breakfast. Thanks to Paul Love.

Toaster Central got a nice write up in the Christian Science Monitor.

Made in America Toaster

Colette in Bristol, Vermont bought this model toaster and wrote After several months of use, we are more than pleased with the quality of this appliance. We eat toast almost everyday and toast a variety of breads. Each piece of toast is hot and crisp on the outside and retains a warm moist texture on the inside. I had forgotten how good real toast could be. No more pain from scraping your palate with toasted shingles from inferior products. The toaster is heavy duty and has a commercial feel and look but I would rather have a great piece of toast than a good looking toaster that has to be replaced often and renders a brick hard piece of toast. I would highly recommend this product.
