LG Combination Microwave Oven and Toaster

As we look to pare down and keep our kitchen appliances to a minimum, the first thing to go for many people is a toaster. It is the definitive single-use appliance, and it can take up far too much precious counter space.

But we don't want to give up toast, and it seems a waste to turn on the broiler for just a slice of toast to go with a morning egg. Enter the combo microwave oven and toaster.

This has apparently been available for two years, but we've never seen it. We like the idea of combining these two appliances for one slim model that doesn't take up too much space.

It retails for $139.

What do you think? Do you have one of these?
