Whether you're making an accompaniment to your morning meal or adding an extra bit of crunch to a sandwich, the Toasteroid Toaster makes burning your bread far more fun. Inside its die-cast aluminum body is a series of microfilaments that let you toast graphics, messages, or nearly anything else you want right into your bread, from emojis to the day's weather forecast. Of course, it also lets you set your preferred darkness, and even preview it in the app — no more mysterious dials to fiddle with. The full size version lets you toast and print on two slices at a time, while the Mini can still toast two slices simultaneously, but can only print on one. No word on how it works with Pop Tarts or Eggos.
Let's face it, you're more active during the summer months, and that means you need to think about hydration more than ever. The Oxo Strive Advance Bottle features a narrow opening at the top for sipping and a larger opening below that is designed for filling with ice. The lid is tethered to the bottle with a coated stainless steel cable, making it easy to lug around to the beach, the gym, or on your next hike. It holds up to 24 oz and is safe to load into the dishwasher after a day of keeping your hydration in check.
Few small appliances make as big a noise as a blender. The Blendtec Pro 800 Stealth Blender is designed to mix things up without messing up your ears. Its secret lies in its design, which incorporates a sealed enclosure with sound dampening properties that wraps all the way around the jar. The result is an extremely quiet, powerful blender with a professional 11 speed capacitive touch slider control and preset cycles for everything from soup to margaritas.
