back to my idea - i'd just need a long enough toaster to make sure it did - or the worlds hottest toasting elements so the time it spends between them needs to be minimal - it'll all be sorted by the time i make it to Dragon's Den
Actually - maybe if the bread was still and the toaster was on the pendulum that'd be more exciting a spectacle?
Alternatively it could be like the hotel breakfast toasters that move the bread through on a conveyor, but instead of falling out at the back (for someone else to steal), they carry on round on the conveyor belt, and get picked up again automatically if you don't grab them because they aren't done enough. Set the conveyor to go fast enough and you've got a perfect product. And when it fails, burns the toast and sets off the smoke alarm, you feel like you're on holiday.
