    I am designing a toaster which i wanted it to lie down flat, what are
    the concerns that i would have to take in cautious? I know that i
    would need to give it lots of airway therefore the moist would not
    trap in the toaster and the toast would not get soggy. Would you give
    me some advice?

    Subject: Toaster
    The bread could pop out, knocking over the jam jar that hits the dog, the dog
    could run, knock over a bowling ball onto a tough, the ball rolls over to the
    other side where it falls into the wireing for a nuclear reactor causing it to
    go into full meltdown and 'toast' 25 million people.
  3. Have you tried a regular toaster on its side? What's the advantage?

    The best toast I've had came from old-fashioned one-side-at-a-time
    toasters that seal the bread in more and hold it at only a slight
    angle to the vertical. The closest you can get with most modern
    toasters is to undertoast the bread. Maybe the bone-dry toast that
    comes from having the vertical entry/escape route for the toast open
    isn't to everyone's taste.

    They work great on their side for grlling the cheese!
  5. For a proper grilled-cheese sandwich you have to butter the outsides
    of the bread and squish it down as it melts.

    Even the yuppie version (3 cheeses and roasted red peppers) is done
    that way.

    Is your middle name Rolavine?
    I figure your 1st name is Rube and your surname is Goldberg.

    From experience. Make toast. Put cheese on toast. Turn toaster on side
    and grill. Remember to hold flap down when raising body of toaster to
  8. Open face melted cheese on toast? That's a different beast from a
    grilled cheese.

    I've made these under the oven broiler and it's interesting how
    quickly the process cheese goes from unmelted to melted to burned.
    Once it starts to brown, I think the IR absorption skyrockets.

    Horse feathers. The only toaster we ever had when I was a kid was a
    GE unit that did frozen pot pies and had a broiler. The door opened
    upward, not on a hinge, but lifted up and over the top. The tray
    that the toast or whatever sets on slid out a bit so you could
    retreive yer food.

    Never caused an accident though.

    Yes! We had toasted cheese, not grilled cheese. Then I discovered
    buttering the outside of the cheese sandwich and grilling it.
