The Bodum Bistro Toaster Does More Than Add Color to Your Kitchen

colorful bistro 2-slice toasters and flatbed toasters by bodum

I guess that a lot of college students will ask this toaster as a housewarming gift. I totally understand the appeal. You know by now that I love bringing color into my home. It is not the first time that Bodum introduced color in an unusual but tasteful way.

The Bistro Toasters is not just a pretty thing. It has nice features that would be appreciated by moms and dads. The 900-watt Bistro 2-slice Toaster is made of stainless steel that is cover with a heat-resistant rubber exterior. It is safer. The little fingers cannot be burned by touching the toaster. It is also easier to clean. No more worries about finger marks on the toaster. Cool features are a defrost mode and a cancel button.

Writing this post makes me want to change my 15-year old toaster. I would like a red one to repeat the bright red center of my kitchen cabinets.

Bistro Flatbed Toasters by Bodum

The Flatbed toaster is something that I never seen before. It will be soon available. I read that it is:

  • Great for Bagels, Croissants, Baguettes & More
  • Toasts one side and defrosts four traditional slices of bread at once
  • Comes with an adjustable Timer
  • Toast larger breads without crushing them

I am curious to know how well it performs. If you have ever tried something similar, I would like to get your input. The Flatbed toaster is available in the same 8 colors.

    bought the black one on the weekend, and the matching kettle! Favourite part as you say is the lack of fingerprints!

    I am happy to read that I am not the only one with a 15 year old toaster! I have to admit, I changed my 15 year old toaster a few months ago. I wish I read this before ( or your wrote it before! ) cos it definitely sounds like a cool appliance,

      Line: Mine still makes perfect toast. And the exterior is in a heat-resistant plastic compound. This is why I hesitate to change it. The Bodum is definitely tempting me.

    I really like the design and the rubber outside is really great for my children. Thanks.
