This Modern Marvel Toasts Bread and Makes Coffee at the Same Time

If life is a difficult trudge through snow, then mornings are a three mile jog through a blizzard in bare feet. In other words, they stink. Thankfully, a group of South Korean tech-wizards have invented a gadget that makes mornings just the teensiest bit more palatable.

It's called the Baking Pot and, believe it or not, it doesn't really bake at all. It does brew coffee, however. It also toasts your bread. That's right. You can now have your coffee and toast prepared via one smartly designed machine. You can use that extra counter space for the juicer you swear you'll use one day you promise.

That's pretty much all it does. It brews and it toasts. If you are the kind of person that worries about getting coffee grinds on their toast, the two halves also separate. It's currently only available in South Korea. Sorry guys.
