Marion Giant Flipflop toaster, ca. 1914

Contributed by Southern Aroostook Agricultural Museum

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.
