My husband loves to have breakfast sandwiches every day, his grandpa made them for him growing up and they have become part of the normal routine. I got a job and I had to leave for work much earlier than him and it made it really hard for him to have his sandwiches anymore. I saw this online and decided to buy it for him and surprise him so he could still make them and enjoy them. This appliance is really big, it is a lot larger than I thought it was going to be, so counter space could be a problem in a small house. The toaster works great just like most toasters, it has knobs so you can select how dark or light you want your toast. You need to be careful with the egg cooker though, it does get kind of hot (it is cooking eggs), so it is easy to grab it and get burned a bit. Cleaning it up is relatively easy as long as you do it right away, it just wipes off. I like to spray the egg area with cooking spray before we put eggs on it, this makes it even easier to clean later and lets everything wipe away really fast. It is a fun little machine and even my kids like to use it to make themselves a breakfast sandwich in the morning. It works really fast and cooks everything for you, you can even put some meat on the side where you would put an egg and heat it up fast.
