CHICAGO – Could you imagine a machine that would cook a hot dog and a bun?

Well, believe it or not, it did exist!

This retro toaster was one of the many topics discussed on the “6@6” on WGN Morning News on Wednesday. Along with this piece of technology, the hosts also discussed the origins of sweet potato casserole, “tramp stamps,” and a former pasta factory that you can now live in.

Watch all of this in the “6@6” from the November 16th show in the video above.
