Imagine your breakfast with a perfectly toasted bagel, a little strawberry cream cheese and a cold glass of orange juice. Nothing toasts like a Magimix by Robot-Coupe Vision Toaster. Made from durable stainless steel, this toaster is unlike any other. It features glass viewing windows that allow you to watch the toasting process and achieve toasting perfection. Four quartz heating elements, four preprogrammed heat settings and extra wide slots make toasting all different types of bread effortless. The bagel setting toasts just one side, as a bagel should be toasted. Other settings include toast, reheat and defrost. Choose a setting or simply push the stop button when your toast is browned just the way you like it. Built to last for 30,000 uses, you'll never have to purchase another toaster again. The Magimix by Robot-Coupe Vision Toaster is available at Williams-Sonoma and retails for around $250.
As much as your honey might complain every time there's something sweet on the table to threaten their status as a size 2 (ha!), Valentine's Day is one of the few occasions that you just have to let yourself indulge. I mean, the holiday just wouldn't be complete without at least a box of chocolates, whether you're sharing them with your Valentine or just trying to make the night more bearable for your single self (who needs a man when you have candy, anyway?). But I say if your significant other is going to take the opportunity to go wayward with their resolution diet, help make it count with gourmet V-Day goodies. I'm talkin' melt-in-your-mouth Petit Fours from Williams-Sonoma, pink cupcakes from Godiva (heck yes they make cupcakes!), or if you're a sucker for tradition, swap your usual store-bought chocolates with couture truffles from Vosges! Yeah, they're meant to be gifts... I just hope your Valentine is willing to share! If the thought of all these treats isn't enough to tempt you, check out the slideshow to really start drooling.
