The Brustolina Tostapane
Square Stovetop Toaster from Italy

This sturdy and well made stove top toaster is brand new and comes from Italy. The top is criscrossed with wires, and the bottom is shaped and perforated. Aside from toasting bread, it is also used for polenta as well as bruschetta. In Italy it is called a brustolina or tostapane.

It measures ten inches square and is made of stainless steel. But the neat part is that the handle slides beneath the toaster for easy storage.

I couldn't find one anywhere in the USA, so I went to Italy and brought back a batch to sell here.

Catherine in Culver City bought this toaster and wrote to say The Square Non-Electric Toaster From Italy is great! I made regular toast on it and it was a big hit. Love it, love it, love it.

I saw this toaster on a cooking show called "Extra Virgin." One of "stars" is from Florence, Italy and he is the main cook. His food always looks good and looks easy to make. He made bruschetta on this very toaster and said this is the best way to make bruschetta because the bread is crispy but still soft on the inside. He also said he got his toaster in Italy. It looked like fun, so, I went on the internet and found the toaster on your website.

From the famous Androck Company

The Krispy Toaster

Made by the great American housewares company Androck, this is a generously sized toaster about ten inches across. It has a retractable handle that pulls out from under the toaster. It is nicely signed with the Krispy name under the cross wires. The handle can be pushed back under the toaster for easy storage. This one shows use and age, but still perfectly good for toasting. It's the American version of the Italian brustolina.

The Jewel Toaster with Swinging Doors

This non-electric toaster is a fairly scarce oldie made of stamped metal so it has the usual light right. It has an open bottom so the heat travels up and then vented through the sides.

Each door has a knob on top to turn the slice to the opposite side.

It has a nice signature on top of the toaster. Manipulating the knobs is enough to keep the kiddies busy if they are old enough to understand hot.

Skinny Pocket Toaster

I'd never seen a pocket toaster this thin, but you'd have to use thin, squishy bread and not much filling. The pocket is made of formed aluminum with dimples on the inside. This one has red handles with a bale and measures fourteen inches overall length.

Still makes the noise of a wind up toy

Red Play Toaster

I've seen a load of toy toasters, but this is the first one I've found that still make a clicking noise. It's dented and the tin is worn, but it still makes the noise.
