Yesterday’s Mystery Object was a Toaster.
It was made of iron because it would be used near an open flame, and metal does not catch fire. To use this toaster, two slices of bread would be placed between the rounded bars of the toaster and placed in front of the fire. When one side is toasted, the rounded parts are turned in order to toast the opposite side.
How is this toaster different from the toaster you have at home?
Does your toaster have something that this toaster does not have?
