Xbox Series S fans might be getting a great addition to their kitchen setup thanks to the rumored Xbox Series S Toaster.
The Xbox Series S toaster was first brought to our attention by Twitter user Gyo Jvfr, who tweeted (opens in new tab) pre-order images with prices, dimensions and specifications.
Despite Xbox not officially announcing this next-generation device, the Xbox Series S Toaster is reportedly a fully licensed product, available for pre-order in France and Belgium, for a rumored price of $63.66 / £53 / AUS$94.61 / €60. This rather strange addition comes with two slots for toast, 1-6 browning settings and an anti-jam function.
Unfortunately, this console-shaped toaster seems too good to be true, especially as April 1st approaches. However, there’s still some reason to hope that this Xbox Series S toaster is the real deal, not just some twisted joke.

A hair-raising peripheral
In late 2021, after Xbox beat Skittles in an intense Best of Tweets poll on Twitter, Xbox Games Marketing VP Aron Greenberg, tweeted (opens in new tab)that, as promised, Xbox would make the viral meme of an Xbox Series X mini fridge a reality.
This hot commodity, which mimics the look of the next-gen console from top to bottom, retailed for $99.99 / £89.99 / AUS$148.49. Despite starting out as a joke, the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge has become a beloved peripheral, perfect for those who don’t want to travel too far from their gaming setup.
While all this may seem too strange to be true, there is a long history of food-related gaming accessories. Whether you think of the classic Nintoaster or the more comical KFC console that allows players to cook chicken while gaming, it seems like this is a lucrative market.
However, with the Xbox Series S Toaster still unconfirmed, I have a bad feeling this little monstrosity is more for show than substance. But who knows, if the internet proves to Microsoft that they’re ready for this kind of responsibility, we might get a gaming toaster sometime in the not-too-distant future.
