Many of you will have seen designer Sasha Tseng’s toaster and writing tool in one.

Yanko Design made it well-known last year, and it keeps popping up in random magazines. If this kitchen tool is new to you, it’s a note-pad and a toaster. Whatever you write on the top gets burned into the toast.

So far notes to hungover roommates and the drawing of dicks are flouted as the most popular quippy and juvenile things to write on the toast. It will more likely be reminders that will never happen and seemingly ironic post-modern labeling, i.e. the word TOAST.

It’s bizarre enough to be worth mentioning in passing.

Like scribbling a note.

    That’s hilarious. I would write,

    “Give us this day our daily bread.”

    Nice. Anyone else got a toast quote? Post it.

    Here are a few:

    Eat me.
    Place butter here.
    Yeast, Wheat, Preservatives.
    I could have been half of a sandwich.
    Are you really going to eat me?
    Stop it.
    If I could eat you I would.
    I am toast.
    I have been branded.


    Don’t touch me.

    I like:

    This isn’t going to end well for me.

    Can I put anything else in this toaster?

  • nick

    I imagine you could put anything you want in it.

    Keep the suggestions coming for what to write on the toast.

    If I can get one of these things, we’ll do a series of photos of the best ones.

    You pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

    Obviously, I’m really strange as that’s the coolest thing ever.
