A Father’s Day Gift: Magimix Vision Toaster Giveaway

In honor of Father’s Day and dads everywhere, I’m giving away a Magimix by Robot Coupe Vision Toaster. It’s a great dad gift, with a sleek look that makes toasting a breeze.

Kitchen appliances may not seem like your standard Father’s Day gift, which marketing tells us should be patterned ties and grilling essentials. Still, when I was growing up my dad sometimes ventured into the kitchen for one thing and one thing only: toast and eggs.

My dad didn’t cook but for breakfast. When I was young and he would make dinner on the nights she worked, the only thing that ever appeared was a plate of toast and eggs. Perfectly cooked eggs at that. My dad knows how to cook them just so, and he does it effortlessly, cracking and salting, watching until they’re just right. Then he would plop those perfect eggs down on the plate and set them in front of his five hungry kids. “Barbie doll” eggs he called them, because they were “unrealistically perfect.” Yet there they were in front of me with a side of golden toast.

Finally, I have found a toaster that can toast the perfect piece of toast, an exquisite English muffin, a crafted crumpet that does my dad’s “barbie doll” eggs justice.

The new Magimix by Robot Coupe Vision Toaster does just that, with four quartz heating elements and settings for toast, bagels, reheat, and defrost, the viewing window allows you to see exactly how golden those crumbs are getting. It’s the luxury edition of all toasters that came before it. Plus, Dad will love it, whether he makes his own “barbie doll” eggs or not.

I’m giving away a Jet Black Magimix by Robot Coupe Vision Toaster (ARV $249.95).
