Few have set Kitchen-Tok — that’s TikTok shorthand for kitchen TikTok — posts quite like like Emily Mariko’s. The Bay Area influencer’s cooking videos have been going viral since 2021. Mariko also happens to have her finger on the pulse of the hottest kitchen gadget trends. Her followers took notice when she added a Balmuda toaster to her food prep rotation this year. 
The 4.5-star rated kitchen gadget uses steam technology to toast bread. The steaming method is meant to perfectly toast your bread, without sacrificing the bread’s inner moisture and flavor. It features four bread modes including sandwich, artisan, pizza and pastry. The device can also be used as a mini oven that reaches up to 450 degrees.

Longtime Mariko followers may remember that the salmon and rice dish-enthusiast previously used the Breville mini smart oven to heat pastries every weekend. The kitchen gadget, rated 4.6 stars by Amazon reviewers, is currently on sale.
