My previous cookbook experience laid the foundation for BALMUDA The Toaster, with a focus on “experiences over things”. Believe me, this toaster sees heavy use at my house too. Because the toast it makes is so delicious, I started making bacon and eggs in a cast-iron frying pan to go with it. This, in turn, made breakfast a more enjoyable experience than ever. It was only natural that I’d eventually start wishing for perfectly brewed coffee, as well.
