SMEG 2 Slice Toaster

Smart appliances are all the rage at the moment. Fridges, ovens, and dishwashers can connect to the internet and communicate with one another like it is no big deal. While we aren’t exactly opposed to this – we’re big fans of new tech here – we can’t help but be a little nostalgic for when dishwashers washed and fridges just fridged. Call us old school, but we love the fact that there are still appliances out there like the Smeg 2 Slice Toaster.

There is a lot to critique about the 1950s (shouts out to the Marlboro Man and lead paint) – but the quality of kitchen appliances is not one of them. They were sturdy, simple, and lasted a lifetime. Those same qualities are baked right into this brand new award winning toaster from Italian manufacturer Smeg. The two slice toaster comes in a variety of powder coated exteriors, features a backlit chrome knob for dialing in the right setting, and a stainless steel knob for lowering your bread into the two extra wide slots. Trust us, this thing didn’t get design awards from Red Dot, iF, and the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design for nothing. Prices start at $150. [Purchase]
