The 4 minute breakfast cooker

Posted on 6 June 2009

If you love your eggs on toast but are always rushing off to work in the morning, we've found you the the perfect quick-breakfast solution... The Back to Basics 'TEM500' Egg-and-Muffin 2 slice toaster with built-in egg poacher.

Rumour has it that this toast-and-egg breakfast machine is intelligent too - one buyer was surprised to learn how the toaster arranges to have the toast and eggs ready at exactly the same time: "They have it so that if the toast/english muffin is done first, that it will revert to a hold & warm position and wait for the egg to finish".

Now if you need a four-minute-breakfast-for-two (or you're just a big-stomached type), Back to Basics still have the answer, namely the 'TEM4500' 4-Slot Egg-and-Muffin Toaster. That's really something!

And where can you get one of these time-saving toasters? They're available through amazon in the US for around $US30 - $US60 but postage is probably that again. We haven't seen them in NZ yet, but they're sure to be here somewhere - if you find one on sale then please let us know.

We realise that four minutes is still too long for some of you to wait for breakfast - you know... an extra three minutes sleep in the morning would make a world of difference. If this sounds like you, then check out this jet-powered toaster - it's still a prototype but may be the answer to your breakfast dreams!
