Toastie Knife Will Cut Like a Hot Knife Through Butter Because That’s What It Is
July 2nd, 2012
Our technology is so advanced that we are now automating expressions. UK bread maker Warburtons recently introduced the Toastie Knife, a prototype self-heating butter knife. If I was Desmond Miles, I’d prefer this over the hidden blade.
The heating element is embedded in the blade itself, so the handle and thus your hand won’t get toasted. Warburtons claims that the blade will heat to a temperature of 41.8ºC (about 107ºF) in under 30 seconds. The temperature was singled out as ideal by “experts”, an elite group of people that specialize in approving stats and numbers that would otherwise be meaningless to promote products. You’re welcome.
Warburtons has not yet decided if it will go ahead with the production of the Toastie Knife. I bet the folks at Brando are just dying to sell this one.
