Gonna jump right in

I've been lurking for a bit, and I decided it was time to ask my question. Hopefully, one of you has an engineer/dorky streak and will know the answer

How does the sensor on the toaster work? Does it just measure time? Is it like a mini smoke detector? I have no idea, and it drives me crazy.

Update: I was actually going to post this to thequestionclub, but since it has already been answered (thank you xerofilter), I'll just leave it.
