The secret to the special taste coming out of Balmuda The Toaster is steam technology. By pouring 5 milliliters (1 tsp) of water into the toaster's water inlet, steam fills the interior while toasting, and the surface of your bread is covered with a thin film of moisture. As a result, only the surface of the bread is burnt lightly, while scent-forming elements like water and butter are contained inside.
A hit in Japan, the toaster also received the iF Design Award 2016 from Germany's influential iF International Forum Design GmbH. If you're looking for a gift, it's certainly a treat for anyone who loves toast!
