Brown Bag Thursday: The Office Toaster

Pin it button big

We have a toaster at our office that sees regular, extremely frequent use. Our office mates have a habit of bringing bread and English muffins in and toasting them throughout the day for breakfast and snacks.

The thing we like about the office toaster is how the good old Maillard reaction creates that wonderful smell, wafting through the entire office with the caramelly fragrance of toasted bread. We also like the opportunity for a fast hot snack or toast with peanut butter.

Do you use a toaster in the office? Or do you call it a fire hazard and leave it for home?
