As the name of this toaster suggests, the "Marion Giant Flipflop" toasted one side of the slice of bread at a time. When done on one side, one flipflopped the bread to toast the second side. The toaster toasted two slices at a time.
The product slogan was, "Make toast your breakfast food."
In addition, the cord is detachable so the toaster can be used without electricity by putting it on a wood-fired stove.
