Razer got its start making PC gaming accessories and eventually expanded into making its own gaming PCs, smartphones, and a few other oddball products.

So what’s next for the company? A toaster. You know… the kind that makes bread crispier.

Why? There’s a story behind that.

A group of enthusiastic fans of the idea have been urging Razer CEO Min-Lian Tan to have the company and design a toaster since 2013. At the time, he responded that if the “Give us the Razer Toaster” Facebook page got a million likes, he’d do it.

That… hasn’t happened. But the community has grown over the years, and now has over 45-thousand likes. And at some point he provided a shortcut: for every person who got a tattoo of a toaster with the Razer logo, he’d count that as 100-thousand likes.

There are now 12 people walking around in the world with Razer Toaster tattoos, and Min-Lian Tan posted on Facebook a few days ago that he’s officially liked the group’s Facebook page and has agreed to “put together my team of designers and engineers” to develop a Razer Toaster.

What will it look like? How will it differ from other toasters? Will it burn the Razer logo in your bread? It’s a bit early to know – Tan says it’ll probably be a few years before the company is ready to ship a toaster.

But an April Fools’ prank from a few years ago might give us an idea. Razer’s Project Breadwinner was never supposed to be a real thing, but the company did produce a pretty slick promotional video and even made a few mockups showing a toaster with USB ports and audio ports for some reason…

… which brings us to today. The folks behind the Give us the Razer Toaster movement have shared a rather epic video looking at the 5-year journey toward getting the company to agree to actually build this thing without actually knowing if they’ll sell more than a few units.

  1. If I consider the quality of wiring on Razer keyboards, I fear this will be a major fire hazard.

  2. Proof read your article, there are so many mistakes it’s like a child wrote it.

    1. There may be a lot of mistakes, but there is no reason to be insulting. If you don’t like the site you are welcome to not come back. We at least try to be civil around here.

  3. I press X to doubt.
    There’s no way Razer will be able to make a toaster that will be able to overheat _and_ throttle.
