Post-War (left), pre-War (right)
There are two variants of toasters to be found in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, a pre-War and a post-War version. The ultra rare pre-War toaster only exists in Vault 101 and select shops, whereas the post-War version is found all over the Capital Wasteland. Both versions can be bought from various shops. In New Vegas, two pre-War versions can be found on the bottom floor of the Ultra-Luxe kitchen, near the freezer. There is also one inside the Vault 21 gift shop on the shelves above the desk on the right. They may also be purchased from the same gift shop. The design of the toaster is somewhat old-fashioned, even for the 50's retro-futurism of Fallout. It bears a strong resemblance to the 1909 Simplex T211 toaster - a two-slice side-loading model which toasts one side of the bread at a time, a design more likely to be found in the 20's or 30's; by the 50's, essentially modern style top-loading toasters with more streamlined casings were becoming common.

Behind the scenes
After disarming the nuke in Megaton, Three Dog mentions that his toaster needs repair on the radio when describing your exploit. It may be a subtle reference to Wasteland's oddly named yet surprisingly useful skill of toaster repair, where the player could repair broken toasters for various items. Also referenced by Dane.
