#2728: Crumbox

Toasters tend to be made in large numbers and quite cheaply. Often, their crumb trays don’t work very well and collect lumps of charcoal in the bottom which can be a fire hazard -or at least a source of burning smells and smoke.

Today’s invention is an external crumb tray (green) which fits inside a toaster stand (red).

The tray has an open top and a sloping floor so that crumbs exit the toaster and collect in the tray.

This not only keeps any crumbs away from the heating elements, but, being transparent, it makes it obvious when the tray is full.

It can then be detached and placed on a bird table. Each toaster would come with three trays, one with the birds, another for the dishwasher and one in the toaster.
