#2099: TardyToast

It’s annoying that my toaster will pump out two slices together, since even my ravenous appetite can’t deal with more than one at a time.

This either results in one slice being left cooling on the plate or having to micromanage the start time for the next slice (when I’d rather be eating in peace).

Today’s invention is a toaster which has a timer for each slot which allows an offset to be programmed in.

This means that slice 1 appears with maximal speed but slices 2, 3 etc appear perfectly toasted at a user-specified interval determined by how long it takes you to butter and eat a piece.

The toaster might even learn that you tend to extract slices 3 and 4 after longer delays than 1 or 2 and thus match your breakfast eating pattern exactly.
