Dostum / Toaster


Dostum is a toaster that has been designed according to the principles of universal design. The product takes into account the full range of human diversity, including physical, perceptual and cognitive disabilities. The user can quickly toast bread with the touch control panel. Every family member can easily and safely prepare his or her breakfast with the same toaster. The product gives aural feedback to inform the user when the toasting is finished. The unique design prevents burning accidents from happenning.
