Have you ever wanted a kitchen full of memes? Well, the Xbox Series S toaster is here and ready to sit next to your Xbox Series X fridge. Yes this is a real toaster that can handle all the bread, English muffins, and frozen waffles you throw at it. It will even toast an Xbox sphere logo onto your bread. Really.

Images of an Xbox Series S toaster first emerged nearly a year ago on French websites, but Walmart has now started selling the toaster for $39.99, as spotted by Wario64. While the toaster looks like an Xbox Series S, with its signature black air vent, it also includes a bunch of features you’d actually want for toasting your bread. There are six levels of browning, a removable crumb tray, an LED countdown, and a defrost button. But the main star of the show is obviously the ability to imprint the Xbox logo into your bread like a real gamer.

This isn’t the first toaster made for gamers, though. Bungie released a Destiny-themed toaster a couple of years ago, complete with a function to burn Destiny’s Tricorn logo into your bread. Razer also promised it would make its April Fool’s Day joke toaster a reality, but that never happened.

The Xbox Series S toaster joins the Xbox Series X mini fridge that was born from memes that mocked the console’s fridge-like look. I’m personally waiting for Microsoft to branch out into a full home appliance range. There’s plenty of room in a kitchen for an Xbox microwave, kettle, or washing machine. After all, any true Xbox fan would want all of their food imprinted with the Xbox logo and their clothes dyed green after every wash.
