I never thought much about toasters until one day, when we all still worked in an office, a smart toaster showed up, and we all began to play with it. This Revolution Cooking  High-Speed  R180 toaster is so innovative, it has a smart digital display and timer that allows it to cook more accurately and lock in more nutrients into each slice of bread or half bagel.

Despite trying to limit my carb intake, especially bread, I immediately popped a sesame bagel into the sleek toaster, touched the bagel picture on the digital touch screen, and in half the usual time it popped up, perfectly brown, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and hot to the touch, without a trace of burning.

The entire office got addicted to toasting, and how it made our mini bagels and our high-fiber bread taste. Toasters it turns out, are not all created equal, and the R180 is so innovative, it actually helps cook smarter, faster, and with a new method that uses a new heating system that makes an evenly crisp and golden toast, more consistently, and uses less energy, delivering a better and tastier toast, every time.

The best thing since sliced bread. Win your smart toaster!
