Alessi’s Plissé toaster boasts a dynamic, sculptural design inspired by the worlds of fashion and architecture. Designed by Michele De Lucchi, the toaster has a unique surface texture that resembles pleated fabric.
You can choose the toasting level from six different options. The toaster also has a defrost function for thawing frozen bread and a reheat function that heats the bread to the desired temperature in 30 seconds. The “Bagel” function only heats the bread on one side.
The Plissé toaster's detachable crumb tray makes cleaning the toaster easy, while the non-slip base ensures that the appliance stays firmly in place during use.
