chilibeanpaste Jan 27, 2013 02:26 PM

Any idea where I might land one of these handy gadgets?

At 1:20 in this video:


TO, Boston, NYC? Even better via the internet?

    I think Joanne Weir has this offered on one of the new selling sites like "Open Sky", Daily Grommet, Groupon or one of the others. I get offers from all of them...all the time
    but check out her name first and maybe you can find it.
    Good luck

      Thanks for the tip amazinc but nowhere to be found I'm afraid.

      After much searching, I believe this is called a Brustolina. Here is a link to the only place I've found to purchase one - Toaster Central. http://www.toastercentral.com/non.htm

      Amazon had two products that looked similar.



      Hope this helps!

            Mmari - That may be awhile! They don't ship to Canada so I had two sent to a friend in Philadelphia. They'll bring them up when they drive up to NS next time. They're anxious to use the one I got them but they don't have a gas stove there, only here in NS.

            They arrived in short order - money order Hfx to NYC 4 days, brustolinas 2 days to Phil. Thanks so much again.

              I'll really amazed how the bread tastes so much better for my crostinis. A nice slight char flavor, crispy outside but still a nice soft interior. I cooked them on the back burner right under the vent hood. I usually have problems with my "very sensitive" smoke alarms but the cooking is so quick I had no problem. Best new gadget I've bought lately!
