Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for many, there is simply no time to stand around and cook the typical breakfast foods. Breakfast sandwiches have become the solution to morning time constraints for those of us who trade that extra 20 minutes of sleep in exchange for eating a well-rounded breakfast. The problem is that while a breakfast sandwich is quick to pick up at any coffee shop or fast food restaurant, these daily purchases pile up, as well as the calories. Viewpoints reviewers agreed that the Hamilton Beach 25475 Breakfast Sandwich Maker offers a solution, giving busy people a quality kitchen investment that neither their wallets nor waists will regret.
Est Price: $30
How does it work?
The Hamilton Beach 25475 Breakfast Sandwich Maker is a counter-top sandwich-making appliance. It uses two compartments to cook the sandwich ingredients, and the sliding middle partition is removable, allowing the cooked egg to be placed directly onto the cooked lower sandwich half.
Step 1: Place the bottom half of the muffin, croissant, or other bread item in the bottom of the sandwich maker, and the cheese, ham, or other protein and dairy ingredients for your breakfast sandwich on top of it.
Step 2: Pull down the top compartment and crack the egg into the container.
Step 3: Place the top half of the muffin directly on the egg, and close the lid.
Step 4: After about 5-10 minutes, slide away the middle partition to place the egg onto the lower ingredients, and the sandwich is complete.
Viewpoints reviewers raved about this sandwich maker. They said that it lived up to the advertisements, with only a few minor tweaks, and that this product was not something that they would stow away after the first use.
A breakfast sandwich revolution
Viewpoints reviewers loved that the Hamilton Beach 25475 Breakfast Sandwich Maker cooked their sandwiches so quickly. They said that it was a good replacement for their early morning fast food runs and did not let down on taste either. They also liked that it was easy to clean, since the product has a removable and dishwasher-safe center component, and all elements are nonstick. Reviewers praised the ability of this sandwich maker to successfully make not only the perfect breakfast sandwich, but also any other sandwich they wanted. They enjoyed their freedom to get creative with what can be a pretty boring food.
“Definitely worth it and still cannot believe the crazy sandwich combinations I keep coming up with! Even tried a croissant with it and came out delicious!” – arcadia48, reviewer since 2009.
“Non-stick pads/rings make it easy to wipe clean. Even with an overflow of cheese – super easy to clean. Each ring/plate is easily cleanable with a sponge or wet paper towel. The non-stick makes the egg come right off.” – jweezy2, reviewer since 2010.
“It is a great time saver as far as making an egg sandwich as it allows you to put all the ingredients in, plug in and simply wait. Using this is such a great alternative to getting breakfast sandwiches from fast food restaurants which are expensive and unhealthy.” – awarrier, reviewer since 2013.
A few breakfast sandwich tips
While the Hamilton Beach 25475 Breakfast Sandwich Maker makes a fully-cooked breakfast sandwich, Viewpoints reviewers left a few suggestions in their reviews for future buyers to help make their breakfast sandwich-making experience as easy and fulfilling as their own.
Tip 1: Let the device heat up for a few minutes before adding your breakfast sandwich ingredients to make sure it cooks in as little time as possible, without multiple run-throughs of the cooking cycle.
“One thing I will mention right off is the fact that it does take about 5 minutes to get it ready to cook. Other than that, very impressive.” – DaveCarel, reviewer since 2013.
Tip 2: Using a little cooking spray on the nonstick surfaces before adding in your ingredients will help minimize cleanup.
“Most of the food remnants just flake off and no real cleaning is required. It mentioned to add a little cooking spray before cooking to make the clean up process easier, but it already seems easy enough.” – Mrndamoo, reviewer since 2013.
The final verdict
The product is still fairly new, but it has already received excellent reviews from Viewpoints reviewers. They agreed that it cooks a breakfast sandwich fit to your taste without the extra $3 a day and ten minutes in the morning rush drive-thru.
