BALMUDA The Toaster

Discipline: Product

BALMUDA The Toaster is unique in the way it uses steam and the heaters are auto-controlled to heat various types of bread. Simply pour 5 ml of water in the top inlet, choose a toasting mode, e.g. cheese toast, baguette or croissant and start. The steam will rapidly toast the outer layer and the heaters will turn on / off based on the inside temperature and the mode of your choice. The result is a golden slice of bread, crispy on the outside and moist inside with a rich aroma. The design concept is modern-classic. Inspired by classic wood-fired ovens, it has a suitable look for a modern tool that serves warm, homey and tasty food.
