Back to Basics TEM500 Egg-and-Muffin 2-Slice Toaster and Egg Poacher

Buy on

The Egg & Muffin Toaster by Back to Basics is an ingenious product designed to toast two bread, bagel, croissant, or English muffin slices and cook an egg, while warming a slice of Canadian bacon or sausage. It does all three functions simultaneously so you're ready to assemble and eat a delicious breakfast sandwich within minutes. The unit measures 15-1/4 inches long by 7 inches deep by 8 inches tall. The entire left side of the unit is a standard two-slice toaster with 5.5x1.5-inch slots.

The right side of the unit contains a round cooking chamber with removable steamer tray, egg poaching tray, warming tray (for meats), and lid with steam vent. The poaching tray holds one egg, which cooks in about 4 minutes, while the toasting is taking place. The steamer tray also can be used to hard-boil up to four eggs. The amazing thing about this appliance is how all the functions are perfectly timed so everything is ready at the same time. You select the darkness of the toasted bread and the machine does the rest. The control panel has four buttons: toast, egg/toast, egg, and cancel.

Product Description

Toaster, egg cooker, and meat warmer--this innovative unit combines all three functions into one easy-to-use appliance. The unit can be used solely as a full functioning toaster, or it can simultaneously toast bread, poach or steam-scramble an egg, and warm a pre-cooked slice of meat--or any combination of these three functions--to make the ultimate breakfast sandwich at home in just four minutes. Simply add 2 tablespoons of water to the heating tray using the included measuring cup, lightly coat the poaching tray with oil or nonstick cooking spray, and crack an egg into the poaching tray. Then place a slice of pre-cooked meat onto the warming tray and replace the lid. Add bread, an English muffin, croissant, or bagel into the wide toaster slots, select "egg/toast" from the control panel, and push the lever down to begin the cooking process. In addition to making breakfast sandwiches, the unit can also be used to boil up to four eggs at a time. Other convenient features include light to dark toast settings, automatic shut-off, an easy-to-clean control touchpad, a removable crumb tray, and handy cord storage. To clean, simply wipe out the heating tray and poaching tray with a damp paper towel. The toaster measures 7-1/5 by 15-1/4 by 8-1/6 inches and carries a one-year warranty.

Product Description

Workday mornings are a repetitive and harrowing transition from awakening, dressing, and travelling to work. Who has time to prepare a nutritious breakfast. So you end up picking it up at a deli, diner, or greasy take-out - sometimes waiting on line with all the others - and you're still running late. Back to Basics Egg and Muffin Toaster is an alternative.

Need toast? You've got it. Want a poached or hard boiled egg? It's yours. And if you want them together in your favorite breakfast sandwich, the Egg & Muffin Toaster also warms your pre-cooked meat. Bingo...ready to eat in about four minutes. It's sort of the drive-thru breakfast without the drive.

As a multi-function appliance, the Egg & Muffin Toaster expands the practical uses for this small electric by giving those with busy schedules more than just toast. The Egg & Muffin Toaster delivers in about four minutes a convenient and tasty morning meal that's both familiar and well liked. In addition to being a full-functioning toaster, the Egg & Muffin Toaster can simultaneously: 1) toast the bread, 2) cook an egg (poached or steam-scrambled), and 3) warm a pre-cooked slice of ham or sausage?or any combination of these three functions, in addition to boiling up to four eggs.

The Egg & Muffin Toaster features wide toasting slots, an auto shut-off for individual toasting and poaching options, an easy-to-clean control touchpad, and light to dark toaster settings. It also includes a removable crumb tray for easy clean-up and cord storage. The toaster's ?Egg/Toast? function directs cooking of both items simultaneously to complete at the same time. Buy on
