Neat gadget

Red Ferret linked to this the other day: an all-in-one Egg McMuffin maker. Cook eggs, toast bread, and warm some sausage or Canadian Bacon with one unit, and everything gets done at the same time. It also works as a plain old toaster, so it's actually a multitasker. Replace your toaster with one of these things.

The only thing I'm skeptical about? Supposedly, it gets "clean" if you wipe two pieces off with a wet paper towel. Uh, no.

I've seen standalone two-slice toasters that cost a lot more than fifty bucks. If I had fifty bucks of someone else's money...I'd consider trying this.

(Ultimately, it would end up being one of those things like a grill or a popcorn maker: use it a lot for a few weeks but then it just sits.)

  • I actually make an egg/english muffin sandwich pretty much every Saturday morning. This looks really cool! But, I don't know if it's worth $50 for what I can already do with a frying pan and a toaster.

  • Shoot, you can already make a pretty good egg sandwich in the microwave! This machine is convenient, as is the microwave, and as we know, quality is rarely the handmaiden of convenience.

    That's why I'd spend somebody else's money on it! :D

  • I have this rule... no single purpose appliances. Granted, one could ignore the rest and just use it as a toaster, but still...

    It's great to be American.

  • So you don't own a toaster? :)

    If you already own a toaster, this would be a waste. But if you need to get a new one, it would be neat. I still maintain that it's a multitasker: toaster, egg poacher, egg steamer, hard-boiled egg maker, various round item warmer, etc., all for $40. Granted, a $40 just-a-toaster would probably be a better toast-maker, but just try to see how far you'd get with an egg in it.
