A year after the first alleged images of the Xbox Series S toaster appeared online, it has now been confirmed. The appliance will serve as a complementary product to the Xbox Series X fridge in Microsoft’s bizarre line of branded kitchen products. Best of all, it’s available to purchase right now, though it appears to be limited to the US via Walmart for the time being.
As spotted by Twitter/X user Wario64 (via Video Games Chronicle), the Xbox Series S toaster is now available to purchase from Walmart at a retail price of $39,99. It features a bagel function, a digital countdown timer and 6 Shade settings. Xbox players might also love the fact that it imprints the Xbox logo on your toast while it’s heating the bread.

The official description for the console-themed toaster reads:
“Achievement Unlocked: Optimal Carb Experience. This appliance will take your kitchen countertop to the next level. The shade selector dial lets you toast your bread, English muffins, frozen waffles, and bagels exactly how you like them every time, anywhere from lightly toasted to dark.”
The Xbox Series S toaster is apparently a part of a sleuth of licensed Xbox products including Xbox Ramen bowls, storage boxes, pen holders, RGB mouse pads and much more. That said, if you’re looking to completely overhaul your household items with Xbox-branded merchandise (including the Xbox Series X fridge), Microsoft will have you covered soon enough.

If you’re still keen on picking up an actual Xbox Series S console, it’s currently available on promotion for R5,999. While less powerful than its Series X counterpart, the Series S provides a more affordable entry point into current-gen console gaming as an all-digital device. You may have to contend with its rather small 512 GB of internal storage space, though.
