Toast is good. Eggs are good. Sausage is good. Pricey fast-food breakfast sandwiches are,well... not so good. For the price of around 15 breakfast sandwiches, why not try this really nifty toaster? The combinations of sandwiches that can be made are endless, and making a sausage, egg, and cheese muffin sandwich takes about 4-5 minutes, which is quite a bit faster than hitting the drive-thru during rush hour!

I was pretty surprised at how well this worked. It's quite easy to use. Using the included measuring cup, add between 2-4 tablespoons of water, depending on the desired consistency of the egg, into the steaming tray. Spritz the mini-skillet with non-stick spray, and crack your egg into it. Poke the yolk a few times with a fork, and spread the yolk around a bit. Then, if you want sausage, bacon, ham, etc., add the precooked meat to the little tray above the egg. Place the steam lid on, place whatever sort of bread you want in the toasting slots, and start the toaster. About 4 to 5 minutes later, the egg, meat, and bread are all perfectly warmed/toasted. Assemble the sandwich, add some salt,pepper, and cheese, and you have the perfect breakfast sandwich. It really beats any pricey sandwich from a fast-food restaurant. The price of the machine itself is reasonable - suggested price is $49.99. It's available online, shipping to the US is around $8.

I highly recommend this toaster. I find it rare that a small appliance lives up the hype the manufacturer puts out, but the Egg and Muffin Toaster does do everything it is supposed to. It also comes with a recipe booklet, and there are also directions on how to make up to four hard-boiled eggs at a time in the toaster. This is a great small appliance, and the color (black and white are available), size (just over 8" high), and capabilities make it the new star of any kitchen.
