    Sorry to rain on Mr Grodin’s parade but the popup toaster patent (1,394,450 (US) issued October 18, 1921) is held by Charles Strite [ ]

  8. The invention was not the toaster, but sliced bread – or rather an automated bread slicer. Otto Rohwedder did invent that (somewhat surprisingly the toaster was invented 7 years prior to the sliced bread that generally goes in it).
