The Xbox Series S toaster is real – and I knead it
Microsoft has kicked off 2024 with some unexpected new hardware to toast the competition
Microsoft has released an Xbox Series S toaster to make your mornings more meaningful.
With surprisingly zero fanfare, the Xbox Series S toaster was made available at Walmart on January 3 and is priced at $39.99.
The toaster lets you toast bread, English muffins, frozen waffles and bagels, with settings that let you light toast or cremate your bread if you’re one of those people – pretty standard stuff.

What separates the Xbox Series S toaster from the competition, though, is that you’ll find a glorious Xbox sphere logo imprinted on your breakfast when it’s ready to eat. It also features a digital LED countdown timer, taking the guesswork out of toasting, and should stop you from being startled by your toast popping out without notice.

🥶 It joins the Xbox Series X mini fridge in terms of Microsoft bringing memes to life
🙅♂️ The toaster imprints the Xbox sphere logo onto your bread
Of course, the fact the toaster looks like Microsoft’s lovely Xbox Series S is the real draw here – and it’s a console that I believe deserves more love from gamers. It also continues Microsoft’s delightful commitment to bringing memes to life, after it released an Xbox Series X mini fridge and a Minecraft Creeper Mini Fridge. It also made a limited edition Xbox Series S cassette player.
This isn’t the first gaming toaster we’ve ever seen. Razer made a toaster of its own, known as Project BreadWinner. But even though it was announced in 2019, it’s never been released.
Will the Xbox Series S toaster be the best kitchen appliance you’ve ever used, then? Probably not. Will it put a smile on your face and let you represent the Xbox brand whenever you’re serving up some piping hot toast? Absolutely.
