If you want to add color and pattern to your kitchen this toaster is a great choice. It can only handle two slices of toast at once however so this is a better option for a single person or couple. For those of you who cook a lot a beautiful set of salt and pepper cellars would look lovely sitting out on your countertop. You could even add a glass olive oil cruet to the mix which would look great and be super handy as you re whipping up delicious meals.

This pod-based espresso/cappuccino maker is easy to use makes delicious coffee and looks pretty snazzy sitting out on your counter.
