Two New Retractable Cord Toasters Unfurled

Black & Decker TR1400SB 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster with Retractable Cord, Stainless Steel

Toasters tend to be rather stationary devices: you find a place for one on the counter, and then just let it be. Features that are more often seen in the more mobile of appliances rarely make it to the toaster. Appliances like food processors and blenders are the appliances that generally benefit from space-saving features like retractable power cords; when stored in the cupboard the power cords don’t get in the way. Toasters however, this doesn’t come into play as much. But that doesn’t mean that the retractable cord toaster doesn’t exist.

Under-the-cabinet food-processing and coffee-grinding

Black and Decker Spacemaker Stainless Steel Chopper/Grinder

Some appliances get put to use every day, and as such, are usually just left out on the counter. It’s nice to always have your most often used tools easily at your disposal, but when not in use, these popular appliances have a tendency to get in the way.

The Black and Decker Spacemaker Stainless Steel Chopper/Grinder solves this problem by mounting under a cabinet. With interchangeable blades and containers, the device can be used as mini-food processor or coffee grinder. There is pulse control for chopping, along with a grind selection button for choosing between fine, medium and coarse. Measuring less than ten inches across, with a height of about 5.5 inches, the Spacemaker not only frees up valuable counter space, but also allows for the ability to accomplish everyday tasks with one convenient unit.
