    PAH... the double-sausage muffins are pretty good, but you can keep the Big Macs and anything else they do!!

    I'd be interested to know how many of those people nay-saying products like this, also happen to use one of them coffee-pod machines, themselves... how about electric tin-openers, bread makers, George Foreman grills, standalone steamers, pasta/rice cookers, or even a Breville...?

    I don't even use the microwave (that's just some monstrosity the Mrs bought), so I'm always bemused by the latest electric thingamies. There's even an electric spiralizer, now... as if a hand-peeler and a bit of practice are no good any more!!

    A bread maker I can understand. An egg fryer toaster? WTF? How about a combined hair-removing ass wiper or a tooth flossing shower cap? Some combinations are just not worth the inevitable compromise!

    It's also not a breakfast that I have frequently, if at all.

    The combined hair-removing ass wiper might just have a niche market for those with clingon problems

    Point of order; you can't get proper Brevilles in the UK anymore. Don't know exactly what happened, but for some reason the original company sold off the name in Europe to some shoddy second rate alternative, which means the genuine Breville scissor-action enjoyed by our US and aussie friends isn't available here

    As you might have guessed, this upsets me But a Breville is the only one of those machines I'd have in the house, because realistically there's no way of getting a properly sealed toastie without one. The rest of those things are for people who are more conxerned about making money to buy things than taking the tine to do things ... a nasty tendency in modern life...

    The George Forman Grill is a toasted cheese sandwich/panini maker. Don't diss it.

    Ours gets used once a week and has probably been the best gadget we've ever bought. Ironically not for it's original use

    Re: Lazy breakfast toasters

    I used to have a breville-branded panini press, which saw a similar amount of use to my cut-and-seal sandwich toaster. I wouldn't get a George Foreman for that personally, I'd get one that's designed for sandwiches: and it's also one of the jobs that you *can* do on the hob, although the results are slightly different.

    Currently waiting for a cheapish ice-cram maker to arrive: going to have some fun messing with that over the next week or two!

    Egg on toast is a common combination.
    People don't really floss in the shower, though.

    I know, right?
    I went looking for one and got bombarded by a load of weird machines, all branded Breville, but none of which were actual toasted sandwich makers...
    I am confused.com...

    I don't think they're supposed to be sealed anyway, though. We have an old Le Creuset press pan which does a great job (on the hobs or on the braai), but it's kinda open.

    Hence wondering how many such people ridiculing the idea also use similar machines.
    Heck, I'm still trying to get around the idea of paying several pounds for just a handful of coffee pods!

    It's for grilling up lean steak. That's it.

    That's probably not something we want to be hearing about on this family-friendly forum... is it?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tefal-Toast-...ct_top?ie=UTF8

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hamilton-Bea...ct_top?ie=UTF8
    Replying to your original question.

    I owned a Tefal Toast 'n Egg and used it for around 4 years nearly every weekend.
    I'm not a breakfast person at all in the week as I don't get hungry 'til 11/12, so how practical it is in a busy rushing morning I can't comment on.

    I like that it didn't take up much room even with the extra egg compartment. It produced brilliant poached eggs every time. I'm not into boiled eggs but it would do 4 of them. It toasted bread like any other toaster I've used and wasn't uneven. It was useful being able to toast & cook an egg at the same time, or just do 1 or the other. Sometimes I just wanted the egg so it was easy to do. Finally I like that there is no need to use oil at all, just a pipet of water.
    It was a doddle to clean, quick wipe and voila. Probably no mess at all with boiled eggs.

    It's downsides are the bread size is small so you need a small loaf. You can only poach 1 egg at a time. Probably not suitable for more than 1 person at the same time, its definitely aimed at the student life.
    The bread size wasn't a show stopper for me, it meant I had a marginally healthier loaf but if you're into door stoppers or fresh bakery bread you're better off with a bigger toaster and a frying pan.

    When/if I can ever afford another place of my own I'll be getting another one Am I lazy? absolutely!
    Being a simple fellow I liked the results and it worked for me.

    The Breakfast Sandwich maker looks great and if I was on my own would consider it

    I bought a GF grill while the proper grill on the cooker was being repaired. It's OK, but keeping it clean was a faff, and once I got the ordinary grill back, it just got put in a cupboard.

    Currently waiting for a cheapish ice-cram maker to arrive: going to have some fun messing with that over the next week or two!
    You don't need an ice cream maker, just a decent bowl and a freezer. We home make ice cream using an electric whisk and putting the bowl in our normal freezer. Way easier and less work-surface clutter in the kitchen. so much fun creating ice cream flavours to go with a particular meal.

    I double up on brushing teeth in the shower when I'm short on time. With a non-mist mirror in the right place flossing could be an option. Don't mock what you can't imagine - people said the Wright brothers were mad. And remember when mobile phones first came out and people mocked the first adopters? I'm off to the patent office....
