There are Bugatti supercars, and then the appliance company. The latter has just unveiled Noun, a fully-transparent glass toaster that will set you back a cool $1000. Rather than the standard glowing heating elements, it utilizes two panels of "a special transparent glass ceramic material with an ultra-high resistance semiconductor."

According to GizMag, "A touchscreen display - or an app - allows users to set the temperature and cooking time, and to choose from presets for functions such as heating bagels, defrosting, and toasting. The food is automatically raised out of the toaster when ready. The panels can be removed for cleaning, at which time the crumb collection tray can also be emptied."
