We set out on another useless journey this past week, and the highlight of the hotel stay (for me, anyway) was this toasting machine I found at the continental breakfast. You load bread and baked goods onto a conveyor rack at the top, they roll into the machine, and after a length of time determined by your chosen setting, slide back out the bottom. I dubbed it the Rollertoaster, and it was worth singeing a bagel to examine how it worked.
Who makes these things? I'm sure they're horribly expensive, but I'm still curious.
