the too-complicated toaster

Found this on the Good Experience blog. It's a three-step toaster: push down lever, select toast number, turn the knob. Oh-kay.

Comments suggest it's due to the toaster being fully electronic. I wonder if it could also be due to lawsuits because someone (a kid, perhaps?) accidentally toasted things and caused a fire ("I think I'll toast this paper"). Because toasting was just too easy.
