Origin[edit | edit source]

As everyone knows, a watch pot never boils, time flies when you're having fun, and watching a toaster slows down time. It is speculated that an impatient morning commuter was waiting for his/her toast when the impatience at the slow passage of time was imprinted onto the appliance. What was an old saying became reality. A common occurrence at Warehouse 13.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When activated, the toaster will slow down time to a near halt for everyone and everything except the user. The toaster is activated by placing bread in the slot, pushing down the lever, and starring at the toaster. The effects will only last while the user has at least partial vision of the toaster. Peripheral vision works, but if the toaster is out of view for longer than the blink of an eye, time will restart.

Artie apprehended a suspect who was using the toaster in a spree of robberies. He was alerted to the thefts by the lack of any sighting of the culprit, and the prints from only one hand being found at the scene. Intrigued by the case of the invisible, one-handed bandit, Artie investigated the case. Using another time-stop artifact, Artie stopped the perpetrator. It turns out that the crook had been holding the toaster out in front of his face with his right hand and stealing with his left.
